EPHEMERID update N°04 - Upgrades and new possibilites
Thanks again for making this project a new door, which open on a field of possibilities. I am pleased to announce that the cards and standard tuck case will be printed by NPCC Noir Arts, the deluxe tuck case and extra will be printed in letterpress in France y Studio Pression.
My idea at the beginning was to print 1000 decks and do half standard and half deluxe. Now I have the possibility to make 2 different decks. The design will be the same for the front, but the deluxe edition will have an extra gold ink on front, and back! This is an image to let you have an idea.
And the decks will now have 58 cards (2 more jokers, a double-backer, and a special card).
Also, here comes more upgrades for both editions.
We will be printed a special sleeve for the double deck! Nothing to do if you already took a 2 deck set, it will be automatically added ! And last but not least, I will print an extra card which will come for every pledge of 30€ or more ! Here are the upgrades in detail :
The bricks will also be upgraded. Check the campaign details for all the updated !
The court cards were all reserved during the 2 first days of the campaign. I reserve these names for the deluxe edition.
As the standard and deluxe edition will be different (deluxe come with gold ink extra), you can name the court of the standard edition! There are also 2 new jockers you can give your name to!
To update your pledge, press the « Manage Your Pledge » button above the campaign info here. Increase your pledge in the « Pledge Amount » box and change your reward.
Another great set of cards I want to share with you! Antagon Royal Playing Cards Poker Size is a unique and elegant deck of playing cards for collectors, where the Court is made up of women only and the cards are all created with an original design.
Hope you like all these ideas and news !
