How thick is a deck of cards? I am trying to make a storage spot for a deck of cards in a cribbage board and left my cards at work. I can find the hight and width of a card online but cant find how thick a whole deck is.
Thanks for your help.

yep, my plan is to have a finger slot in the side to make it easied to get the cards out. I am designing the cribbage board and my brother is going to help me make it and give to his girlfriend for christmas. It is the first time my brother has taken an interest in any type of woodworking. It should be a good project.

I know it’s a ridiculously old post but my first thought was why nobody suggested she actually measure the deck? Or since she knows one card thickness a good estimate is found by multiplying by 52 (or 54 with Jokers). Seems too easy to me. But again I’m replying to something 9 years old.
