Attractive, non-standard, double-ended courts, each in an oval frame. The red-suit pips are printed in orange and the black-suit pips in blue. In addition to orange and blue, the colours silver and purple are used extensively on the court cards to great effect. Behind the Kings is an eagle, behind the Queens is a butterfly, and behind the Jacks is a horse. All the pips are arranged vertically down the centre of each card. A cream background is used throughout, while the backs are printed in black and gold with “LASER CLAY” across the centre. The cards are elongated.
