This is the first trump marker we ever created and is still one of our best sellers. It is a hand painted marker we call our Vintage Style Crackled Wood Trump Marker (a.ka. Trump Indicator). With this design we originally set out to create something that was unique, yet easy to see. First we hand paint the blocks with black and red, coat with crackle medium and then we apply the white paint. This may seem a little cumbersome but this is what allows the black and red to flash through the cracks on the maker giving a pretty cool affect. We then apply specially cut pips (hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades) to 4 of the sides and coat it lightly with a lacquer. Two of the sides are left blank which are perfect for those who might want to add something.
The Vintage Style Crackled Wood Trump Marker measures ~1-1/4 on all sides to make it easy to throw in your pocket or purse for easy travel. The pips however are big enough to be able to see accross most tables. The hand painted, crackled design includes slight imperfections to give it the desired "weathered" appearance that we are trying to accomplish. Please remember that every one of these will look slightly different because of this fact.
