Naipes '210' playing cards made in Montevideo by Industria Gráfica Papelera S.A. (Ingrapa) who became successors to Cía Gral de Fósforos Montevideana S.A. in the 1980s and continued producing the same brands. Ingrapa also produced Naipes Super, Naipes Ancla and Naipes Charabon, as well as certain brands for other distributors such as Fantasias S.A. and Akosol S.A. Around this time there was also an increase in the production of advertising playing cards. In 1992 Ingrapa was in turn taken over by Casabó S.A.
