What are Fontaines?
Fontaines are a deck of cards I designed one night in photoshop for fun. I made one prototype deck, started using it in my videos, and people couldn't stop asking to buy them!
I made an indiegogo campaign for the Red Fontaines on Feb 15, 2013. Within 18 hours, we met our $10,000 goal. Before the end of the month, we made over $21k. The Red Fontaines sold out. I only have a few decks left for myself, and they are now selling for up to $60 EACH on eBay. Everyone, including myself, wanted more Fontaines.
BACK IN BLUE
Ever since the Red Fontaines were released, I've been asked CONSTANTLY by hundreds of people on the internet begging for a blue edition of Fontaines. The time has finally come.
The Blue Fontaines are available RIGHT NOW - with YOUR HELP! This time we are trying to printing 5,000 decks and we need $20,000 to do it up right.
Fontaines started with just a back design. Now, every deck will come printed on classic bicycle stock with linen finish, perfect for cardists and magicians alike.
The Ace of Spaces is simple, streamlined and elegant, featuring the Fontaine box logo running through the center of the Spade.
The Jokers also sport the blue box logo with the fontaine F for pips. A Blank Faced card is included for magicians - to use in various effects. Seal? You mean the lint magnets and tuck box killers of the world? No seal, my friend. Not today.
The Box has a utility device for magicians built right into the design. My friend Michael Stern and I developed a concept called The Vintage Holdout that is a slight alteration you make to a card box that opens the doors to TONS of amazing tricks - the downside is it only works with these Vintage Series bicycle decks. Until now. I built the same method right into the box design. Learn it here.
In additional to decks on decks, we also have hoodies, shirts, bricks, uncut sheets and a personal favorite perk of mine, FONTAINE CARD CLIPS!!

Deck Add-On Guide
Want the Porper Card Clip but also more decks? Simply follow the add-on guide below - once you've added your total to your pledge, shoot me a message letting me know exactly what you want to add.
Example: U.S. Backer wants to add 4 more Decks of Blue Fontaines to their current pledge.
Current Pledge: $20 - 2 Decks of Blue Fontaines ADD: $39 (4 Decks) to current pledge for a total of $59.
Example: International Backer wants to add 4 more Decks of Blue Fontaines to their current pledge.
Current Pledge: $20 - 2 Decks of Blue Fontaines. ADD: $39 (4 Decks) + $18 (6 Decks Shipping total) to current pledge for a total of $77.
Every perk on the campaign includes free shipping within the USA, so if that $12 price tag on one deck scares you, realize that it's going to cost me anywhere from $3-5 to ship that one deck in an envelope to your doorstep. And also the price of the envelope. That's included if you live in the USA.
If you're thinking $12 bucks even with shipping is still a lot, I agree. The more decks you buy, the cheaper the price, so get your costco mentality and buy in bulk. Or don't. It's really up to you.
This is a fixed funding campaign, meaning if you purchase any of our perks and we don't reach our goal of $20,000 within 30 days - you will get your money back! :D
Last time I did a crowdfunding campaign, I charged $8 across all perks, and I lost about $3,000 in extra international shipping costs! It was a sad day. Some bricks cost me $75 to send!! So the international prices are averaged. Sorry if they are a bit pricey - mail is lame!
Risks and challenges
I'm only one guy, but this project is my baby, and I'm a very hard worker. The decks should be printed by February, but USPCC can be busy. Understand that there may be delays in printing, and shipping 5,000 decks can take a while. So stay excited, stay patient, and rock on! I want you to have these decks even more than you do!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
