Why Us?

For almost 20 years, Creative Instinct has been designing and producing collectible officially licensed trading cards products for NASCAR, NFL, NCAA, NHRA, WTA/ATP, Mattel Hot Wheels, Orange County Choppers and Elvis Presley Enterprises to just name a few. We have been involved in the production of over 100 MILLION trading cards!!! Our expertise in the trading card can’t be beat. After years of developing relationships with our vendors, we launched the Custom-TradingCards.com website to offer the same great quality trading cards for smaller runs.

If you are looking for a promotional or marketing piece for your police department, fire department, sports team, church, organization, business services, a new product launch or any other idea you might think of… trading cards are that unique promotional product that you’ve been looking for.

Custom trading cards are authentic trading cards just like the ones we produce for our clients that sell their products at major retailers like Target, Walmart and 7-11 stores! Don’t be fooled by the imitations. Request our free samples and see for yourself. Our customer service is also first rate. We are here for you and not just a website that you can’t find a real person to talk to. Call us to discuss your project at 303.623.1876.
