Funding Unsuccessful

This project's funding goal was not reached on on March 30, 2013.

If funding is successful, these designs will be printed as Bicycle Branded playing cards through The United States Playing Card Co.!

About this project

This is my second attempt at bringing a playing card deck to life. If funding is successful, these designs will be printed by The United States Playing Card Company as a Bicycle Brand playing card deck.For those who missed out on my first deck, I was the creator/designer behind the Bicycle Galvanic playing cards. That project was successful and I'm hoping this will be too!

  • Limited run of only 2,500 decks
  • Printed on Aristocrat Stock
  • Magic Finish
  • Custom Back Design, Ace, Jokers, Court Cards and Tuck Case
  • Additional Joker will have a reveal
  • Double Backer
  • Mystery Gaff Card
  • Peel and Reveal tuck case corner!
  • Limited 50 Uncut Sheets

If these goals are reached then additional features will be included: $9,500 (Goal): Deck will be produced as is with all of the specifications above!
$12,000: Custom seals will be added to each deck! 
$15,000: Metallic ink will be added to every court card!   
$20,000: Tuck cases will be embossed!
$25,000: Custom Brick boxes will be made!

Let's get back to the basics!

This Kickstarter page was created for these playing cards and nothing else! This is not a shop. My goal is to get these cards printed and nothing else. So the rewards are nice and simple: 

- Uncut sheets!: Both Lucent (50 count) and Galvanic (24 count) 

- Bicycle Galvanic Deck! (My first Kickstarter project and Bicycle deck!): Only 1 gross (144 decks)  is left to resell! 

- 11"x14" photo prints of the back design: Add $45 to any reward!

- 11"x14" canvas prints of the back design: Add $60 to any reward!

What you pledge is what you get

Meaning: Please do not contact me asking to add a few more bucks to the pledge you have chosen to get another deck. I have a limited amount and needs to be spread out evenly. Thank you for the understanding. 

Thank you so much for the support! I really hope this project is successful. Every backer will receive their rewards in a timely matter. This is my second deck and will be many more in the future! Please follow me on the Facebook page for daily updates, contest and more!:

Risks and challenges

Thank you so much for everyone's support! However, there are always risks and challenges. The ship date was set to March because USPCC is backed up with decks to print. I will get the decks out as soon as possible to all backers. If by any chance you receive a damaged deck, please contact me directly and I will be happy to get that replaced for you.
