Naipes Argentinos La Partida y Aparcero are exclusive, registered designs published by Obsequios Empresarios Argentinos as an attractive promotional gift for companies.
Packs are therefore mostly found with advertising on the reverse, and are accompanied by a leaflet explaining the source of the designs by Juan Arancio. The court cards depict indigenous South American tribes which are integral to Argentinian national identity. Currently packs are printed by Gráfica 2001 but in the past other printers have been involved.
