A special, non-standard pack manufactured by Gráfica 2001 for Fastener S.R.L., Buenos Aires.
Fastener S.R.L. are manufacturers of nuts and bolts and other industrial fasteners. The traditional Spanish suit symbols have been substituted by various kinds of nuts and bolts, and the back design emphasises the fast delivery times which the company achieves. The court cards are based on Gráfica 2001's La Española 2000, a modern, digital re-working of the traditional Spanish designs.
