The Gripper Hand & Foot Hand-Aid!

A helping hand when you need it!

        These hand-held playing card holders are designed especially for folks with or have developed hand issues making it hard or impossible to hold onto their playing cards. I’ve incorporated an elastic band in this card holder that actually HOLDS the card holder securely TO THE HAND rather than the player's hand holding the card holder. (Please view the photos.)

    If you or someone you know is being kept from playing Hand & Foot because arthritis or some other hand issue has taken over the hands making it hard to hold the playing cards, then look no further! Read on how this unique playing card holder works:

Your card hand is inserted between the two halves while your “foot” is kept in the special pocket built in on front of the card holder, keeping it off of the table away from your melds and red & black books. (See the accompanying photos to get the idea).

    Caution: when playing H&F with your card playing group, others may want your Hand-Aid Gripper. When that happens, just send them my way!

Photos are for illustration only; the design on the fabric is such that no two card holders are alike. The "Foot" pocket is decorated with a Hand & Foot ribbon. Playing cards are for illustration and not included.
    Note that all my Gripper playing card holders are made in a pet free, smoke free, and most important, a VIRUS FREE environment.

Made with quality materials, I create my Grippers in a little shop located in my backyard. I do it all: buy all the materials needed, prepare everything to be made into one of my unique playing card holders, package and ship them, and do all the advertising needed. This is actually a hobby of mine as I'm retired, so I try to keep things down so as not to turn it into a job!

Hello, and thank you for stopping by! My name is Rob (posing with my beautiful wife Jeanne) and I'm excited that you've decided to drop by to learn a bit about me and why I make playing card holders!

Prior to becoming a crafter, I was a self-taught artist, dabbling in watercolors, oils, acrylics and pencil. When I retired the first of 2007, I tried my hand at producing paintings of landscapes, birds, flowers, and even portraits. However, it didn't take me long to find out that unless one is extremely talented the artwork pretty much goes unnoticed.

I'm having a good time in my retirement and this new chapter of my life, but I'm the type of person who needs to be busy. So when my wife retired a couple of years later, we decided to try the "Snow Bird" scene for a while. (It was fun, but all the driving to and fro plus the packing, etc. got way too tiring so that was the end of that.)

But while we were there I discovered that many retirees loved to play card games. However, I also learned that there were many who had problems holding the cards due to hand issues, way too many cards, etc. So I decided to set out to find a solution. After many trials and errors, I came up with a prototype which, after consulting with my wife (who has done quite a bit of sewing and quilting) I improved upon and set out to test my "invention" at craft fairs. They went over so well that I actually sold out at my first fair! I quickly made more that evening and participated in another craft fair where I just about sold out again.

After arriving back home, I improved upon my design yet again and started making more for our next trip to the south. The next craft fair was a testament to word of mouth advertising, as many of my customers were referrals from the customers who bought from me the previous year. Thus, the Amazing Gripper Playing Card Holders were born! My unique card holders have continued to evolve to what you see here in my shop. Over the years, I've added many styles to the delight of many of my loyal customers.

So there you are - my story in a nutshell. I hope you enjoyed reading it; please continue to browse my shop and contact me if you've got any ideas or comments. Enjoy, and have fun at the card table!
