Building on more than 135 years of craftsmanship

American printing company Russell, Morgan & Co. issued their first range of playing cards in 1881. Four years later, Bicycle became their flagship brand. According to company lore, the name was inspired by the cycling fad of the late 19th century, when unicycles, bicycles and tricycles took the country by storm.
