About this project
Choice playing cards are a contemporary deck inspired by the history and hand drawn playing cards of the past. They were created and drawn by Ben Kolozsi. 2,000 decks will be printed by Expert Playing Card Company with their best finish and highest quality stock. Package fulfillment will be met by the fast and secure, Art of Play.
The DVD tutorial was created entirely by the team. Ben organized this project then let them do their work to offer the public a direct line to the performers. They even did the artwork as well as decide the many roads this project traveled. The Choice team is Andreas Neaphytou as director and editor, and the performers Alvin Herp, Edo Huang, Alix Becle and Patrick Varnavas. Each artist has two signature moves to share with you. This includes tutorials, performance and explanation for each piece. In total there are seven cardistry flourishes and one sleight for good measure. All proceeds from the dvd will be divided amongst the five team members. We currently have all footage shot and Andreas is finishing the editing as the campaign runs. We have a later shipping date marked to allow for any room needed for adjustments as well as be transparent to everyone.
We are offering up twenty hand painted playing cards individually. If you purchase one of these cards and have a specific card and set of colors in mind, I will be happy to customize to buyers liking. Each single includes a matching deck and certificate. With the need of time to create, these ship separate and at a later date.
There are fifteen handcrafted Ryan Edwards and customized Joe Porper Card Clips. Each clip includes a matching deck and certificate.
We have ten of the world famous Anything is Possible Bottles by the legend himself Jamie D. Grant. Each bottle comes with a matching deck and certificate. With the need of time to create, these ship separate and at a later date.
If unlocked the red deck will be available in limited numbers to allow everyone a chance at the choice. The base print run is set at 1,000 decks. They also include embossing, seals, and metallic inks on the tuck as well as on the courts themselves in the form of a flourish and a clover. Set to be four per order and priced at $12.00USD per deck.
We want to give credit where credit is due. David Salinas is the font artist for "Playing Cards" on the tuck box. After seeing his work, Ben knew it embodied everything that he wanted Choice Cards to be and immediately contacted him to commission his talent. Other than David's font work, Ben designed and illustrated all art involved in the making of this custom deck.

Risks and challenges
With everything in life there come risks and ours is final production. Without your help we would have never given this project a second thought due to the funding needed. We have already contacted and submitted all necessary art files for the entire campaign to the Expert Playing Card Company and we have the green light. We have also contacted and will be working with Art of Play to ensure trusted package fulfillment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
