A couple of things. First, thank you all again and congratulations all around... we did it! We hit our initial goal and the project will be funded! Second, it has come to our attention that our deck designs could be even stronger if we made the slightest of changes to the card backs. As it is right now, our card backs are a One-Way deck, meaning the design on the back of the card is not mirrored. This is not really optimal for many different playing card applications, so we want to change the backs to be a mirrored Two-Way back, thus making the cards more practical and useful. I am attaching the new design below.
One other design note... on the new Black Deck back we changed the red hearts to black. When we made the back designs mirrored, it did not look good having the two red hearts so close together, especially since they were the only non-gray-scale elements in the design... The Red Heart will still be included on the Black Deck Tuck box, and the Black deck will still have the special Black design for the Heart Suits. The ONLY design change for this entire project is the card backs, everything else will be the way you see it on the project page. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions, comments, opinions, etc. And like we said, we feel this very minimal change will make the deck even stronger!!!
Thank you all again!
