    I'm not sure about white glue, but regardless of what glue you use I would sand it a bit first to rough it up. That's what I usually do.

    I either use mod podge or gel medium for my backgrounds on the play cards and it seems to hold fine.

    What about used casino cards? They are the correct size but have one corner that has been slightly trimmed to keep them from being replayed by anyone hoping to cheat. The dollar stores sells them.

    You would want to ask the host (if it's for a group swap) or the person you want to trade with first to make sure it's okay. Some people care so that their collection is all the same size, and others don't mind it. For me, personally, I don't care if a corner or two are clipped...I care more for the artwork on them. (The casino cards I got from a dollar store have two ends that were clipped and rounded, so I use these for my personal collection and not for swaps.)
