About Real Souvenir Publishing

Expert publishing and fundraising custom designed for historical centers.

Our Services

“Real” Souvenir Publishing is a pioneer in the field of creating fun souvenirs for museums, historical societies, genealogical societies, Main Street Associations, and other history centers.  We pride ourselves in the quality of our product and the uniqueness of our proven fundraiser.  Over the past several years “Real” Souvenir has grown and continues to create decks of cards for just about every state in the United States of America.  From small towns and villages with a population of 400 or more, to counties, larger cities, state organizations and more.  Our fundraising program has been a huge success and has helped many historical organizations raise much needed funds for their organization.

Since 2005 “Real” Souvenir has had a vision to provide the best quality playing cards and jigsaw puzzles to the history centers around our country.  Since that time we have produced hundreds of “fun” souvenirs that have raised literally thousands of dollars for various organizations.  Most of those dollars raised were done with no out of budget expense!

We know and understand that museum fundraisers are a lot of work!  One of the biggest decisions for your organization is often deciding what type of fundraiser you want to do.  We also know there are a lot of popular commercial fund raising ideas out there for your organization but very few are designed specifically for a history center like this one.  It is our hope that you will give this idea a gander, and check out our unique program.

Top quality products and a unique fundraiser program for museums, historical societies, genealogical societies, chambers of commerce and more make us very unique.  We invite you to look around, learn and then use the contact us form to drop us a note if you want more information.

Brief History

“Real” Souvenir Publishing is located in Circleville, Ohio and is operated as part of Newt’s Games & Playing Cards, a division of The E-Quiver, Inc. Family of Companies.  “Real” Souvenir was originally started as an effect of a unique deck of historical playing cards that we created for Circleville, Ohio.  After the deck was a HUGE success locally we started having surrounding towns asking us if we would help them create a deck.  So we did!  Back in 2005 we were originally only doing decks for folks that were located in Ohio.  When our decks started floating out to various history centers across the US we had to create a plan that would work for many!  Each organization wanted to create their own deck of cards so we developed our unique trademark fundraising program to help them.

The key to any fundraising effort is trying to find a sponsor to underwrite what you are trying to do. When you get someone to sponsor your product you are able to raise more proceeds or profit.  The problem is, in this economy, many people or businesses just do not have the extra funds or budget to sponsor museum events.  The items here at “Real” Souvenir Publishing go beyond just raising much needed funds, they also help folks in your area either advertise their business or share memories.  The part that really makes it great is your sponsors not only get to feel good about helping you, but they can take home one of the decks or puzzles you create.

One of the best parts about Newt’s “Real” Souvenir Publishing is not only the fact that we can help an organization create a souvenir with no out of pocket expense, but we will help them through every step of the process.  We not only know playing cards and puzzles, but we continue work to have the best fundraising program out there.  We have digital files, printed pages and more to help make the process flow easier.  We even offer simplified pricing that includes a complete “Souvenir Edition” package that makes it easier for organizations who do not have an art department.

One of the biggest things to remember is yes, you can do a “Real” Souvenir deck for any special occasion, but you can also do one each year or however often you wish.  Each souvenir we do has an “Edition” number which not only lets you know where you’re at, but lets other folks know that there are past editions or future editions will happen.  So don’t limit yourself to thinking you can only do one deck or puzzle and you’re done!  This is a fund raiser you can do over and over again by either changing the theme, changing the images or any thing.  The options are endless and the amount of times you do a deck can be endless too!

No upfront cost means no risk to your historical organization.  With tighter and tighter budgets having a way to raise funds BEFORE you pay have become not only popular, but vital.  Once your organization chooses to do our fundraiser we send you everything you need to get started and it costs you nothing to get started.

We invite you to contact us and find out more information about this very unique fundraiser.



Not only does our team have over 10 years of experience, but we have created a historical deck for our town and participated in the fundraising projects with area non-profits.



Our collaboration with multiple manufacturers both abroad and in the United States helps insure the highest quality products.



We help create the tools to help make your fundraising project successful.  With coaching and practical experience we’ve learned doing the fundraisers themselves we not only use what works, but we adapt as things change.
