 About the Project / Acerca del Proyecto

We wanted to create a joyful, pg-rated deck of cards with media and social associations. Every aspect of this project had a careful design process and evolution. We created 14 illustrations for this deck. One for each number, 4 suits , a back side with a high-color contrast and a glossy finish. Our favorite mental picture is of a Joker and a yellow tuck box featuring Ace Ventura.

Cards are printed on 310 gsm high quality paper acid free with a matte finish on the face side and a glossy finish on the back. We chose rounded corners for better grip and shuffling. Cards are printed with a digital press printing production in a 29.5 x 20.8 inch printing size with an offset-matching printing quality.

We've been developing this project for over a year and many changes have been made along the way. To view the growth and evolution, click on the link below.

Quisimos crear un mazo de cartas divertido, apto para todo el publico con referencias populares y sociales. Cada aspecto de este proyecto a tenido un cuidadoso proceso y evolución de diseño. Creamos 14 ilustraciones para esta baraja, una para cada número, 4 pintas, un reverso con un alto contraste de color y terminado brillante. Nuestra favorita imagen mental del Joker y una cajetilla plastificada introduciendo a Ace Ventura.


Las Cartas son impresas en papel de alta calidad, libre de acido de 310 gsm con terminado mate en el tiro y terminado brillante en el reverso, seleccionamos un corte redondeado para las esquinas para un mejor agarre y facilidad al mezclar. Las cartas se imprimen en maquinaria de prensa digital en planchas de 75 cm por 50 cm con excelente calidad de impresión offset.

Iniciamos el desarrollo de este proyecto hace mas de un año y muchos cambios se han hecho durante el camino. Para ver el crecimiento y evolución del proyecto puedes visitar el siguiente enlace.

Risks and challenges

We have printed several decks during the evolution of the project therefore we have a very good notion of printing times and procedures, however, due to the quantity we set the expected delivery of the cards to February 2015 to have more than enough time to print and ship all the decks and rewards. We can assure you that we'll keep you posted if any inconveniences we find on the way.
