Icon set request - bring back card suits


Hi there!

I’ve been using Balsamiq for the past 4 years now in my day to day activities as a Game Designer and thus the card suit icons were extremely useful (hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs).
After the recent update I’ve noticed they got replaced with some other symbols - which render my whole archive useless and my ongoing work quite fidgety, having to use JPG assets.

Is there a way to use another (older) icon set? If not, please bring those symbols back, I’m sure I’m not the only designer missing them.

Many thanks,


Hi Radu,

Thank you for your input. Yes we are aware of the lack of certain icons in the font awesome library. We made a request to add a few that we had in the old set that are not yet in font awesome.

We have the old icon set on our website with steps how to import them.
Here is the link where you can download the icons:

And this article explains how to import them:

Let us know if you have questions.


Thank you for the quick and informative reply, I will replace icon set!

Best regards,
