Hi All
I am putting the finishing touches on my first design for a run of plastic playing cards.
I just need to finalise the red for the hearts and diamonds.

feedback appreciated

blacks included for reference.

Also, in for the group buy when it happens, even if it's just a couple of decks due to budget constraints on my end!

middle (e). Too dark and it gets too close to black under poor lighting (basically when peeping)

Impossible to tell from looking at them on a monitor
^This. How colors look on a (backlit) monitor may look different than in person with light reflecting off ink on a printed surface, and will also depend on the level of lighting in a room. I'd guess the printed reds might look darker in person, and might lean to go with the brightest red above.

Although, I tend to agree that how they look on the monitor, I'd prefer one of the darker red shades.
