About

Vox Playing Cards // Project Vox.

Concieved by Beau Challis. Designed by Lotrek. Printed by Legends Playing Card Company.

I don't want to sound or seem like everyone else. How can i sell you this deck, but remain an individual among a sea of other creators. I could tell you about how different and revolutionary this deck of cards is and use all kind of long elaborate words that over emphasise my point, but i really don't want this project to be that. I realise that there is a lot of competition on kickstarter - more so every day. Nowadays it seems to me that nearly everyone who tries their hand at magic or cardistry thinks they need their own deck of cards. All these decks feel to me like there is just no love involved and although ok at the end of the day they are all just decks of cards i hope you can see that the vox deck is not that. Vox is a passion brought to life, it is not a double logo 'minimal' throw it together, it is 2 years of hard effort, teamwork and dreaming. Vox is about aiming higher than you are actually sure you can go, achieving more than anyone realised was possible. I hope you can all see the fire for this dream, and help me complete the final stage of my journey. Over the last 2 years i have met some incredible people and have so many people to thank, starting with you. Thank you for visiting my kickstarter.

Thanks to everyone. :)

The Deck:

The deck will be printed by LPCC Legends Playing Card Company on the legendary sharps finish. The back will include metalllic silver inks and the box will be silver foiled. 56 custom cards including 2 jokers, an ad card and a duplicate 7 of clubs. The deck is also fulfilled (shipped) by LPCC meaning, you will have your decks super quick! (shipping direct can save over a month!) 

The Decks are shipped from Hong Kong which means unfortunately, its a little more expensive to ship to the US however, i have kept all the prices literally to the minimum for shipping and in some cases i will actuallly be losing a little money on the shipping. To keep the prices of the decks as low as i can, the funding goal is a little higher than usual. This way i need to sell more decks but i figured it would be better than pricing the decks even higher. 

'Vox' is Latin for voice, which is the general running theme for the deck. a lot of the deck is moulded around the idea of sound waves, and vocal patterns. I wanted a deck that was not minimal, but not too involved - visually pleasing and easy on the eye, yet not boring. I am so happy with the end result. The back design, especially from a distance is fairly simple, yet remaining (i feel) interesting and creative. Also, the closer you get the more detailing in the wave like pattern you will notice.

 The back design features inspirations from sound waves, and follows the theme of noises, voices, sound waves etc.

  

The Court Cards:

I wanted a deck that was still kept some elements fairly true to an original deck of cards. So the court cards look similar to original court cards. However, get in closer and there are some subtle changes. The styling (patterns, lines, colours) are all different, but nothing too outlandish. The real changes are in the faces - the faces are custom, all people that matter to me in my life family, friends etc and small details have been put in to match their personalities, interests etc. Take for example the queen of clubs (my sister) Notice the blue hair and musical note. Details like this have been added to all courts, which makes the deck so much more personal to me, but keeps it useable to anyone else as the courts don't really look too far from the standard ones.

Vox is excited to offer for the first time, SEE YOURSELF AS A COURT CARD...

SO not all of the court cards have been taken, a few still dont have a face. I thought this was a really unique way for backers to get even more involved with the deck... be in the deck! Anyone who pledges this, will send us a picture along with any personal idea for their court card and Lotrek will bring you to life!

The project will be updated throughout the duration, as new court cards are added etc.

The Perks:

I wanted to bring new things to the table. Over the years that vox has been in the works i have had plenty of time to look at other projects and learn from them. I thought what do i actually want? I have tried to find unique perks, and also be able to offer the same things everyone else does but at a cheaper price. For example the uncut sheet, the Impossible bottle. I hope you like these!

Impossible Bottle:

We have all seen the impossible bottle before. A very cool product, but usually priced at $150-200 perhaps even more. After searching around, i am really excited to offer the Vox impossible bottle for a fraction of the price!!

Add ons! - for add ons, only decks will be available. So for example, if you want a deck in a bottle and 2 decks, select your perk as the deck in a bottle and then add the appropriate amount to your pledge total (make sure to include shipping) and email me the appropriate info.

If you want say, an uncut sheet AND an impossible bottle, please contact me first.

LASTLY a massive thanks. I have so many people to thank its untrue. Here goes haha.. A massive unbelivable supersonic thankyou to Lotrek, without him none of this could have happened. Thankyou for seeing my dream, and helping me acheive it up to this point. Thanks to my family, and girlfriend for always supporting me. Thanks to my good friends Daniel Hybrids and Nick Stumphauzer for all their help and feedback, you guys are legends! :) Thanks to Neema, Rob and Adam for their help promoting me!! :) thanks to paul carpenter for inspiring me, and pointing me in the right direction when i had no clue where to go. Thanks to greg for getting me started in magic/cardistry and thanks to asad (52kards) and chris brown (theorbitbrown) for being huge inspirations to me through the years. Finally thanks to everyone on instagram, facebook and youtube who have encouraged me, and thanks to all the backers. You are all making my dreams come true, and i hope one day me or someone else can help your dreams come true aswell.

Peace. :)

Risks and challenges

As this is my first project, i am stepping into the unknown. However i have the brilliant Lotrek to guide me, he has offered assistance the whole way along, and he has completed many sucessful projects. Any unforseeable problem in the future will have a solution. I will try my best to make everything go as smoothly as possible. :)
