Funded! Woo Hoo! You did it THANK YOU!!
-Re: Spectrum Edge "Fanners"
Thanks for the nice comments on these! Fanning decks are somewhat of a niche' market within a niche' market! I'm still trying to figure out if there's enough of an interest in the fanning deck...
I was going to just go ahead and invest in them personally, so that I could offer them here... But I've decided that it would be best to consider the fanning decks as a project unto themselves let you all decide via another Kickstarter project. It takes quite a bit of work to release a new deck and I want it to be as "right" as I can for my sake and everyone else's! Keep an eye out for them! There are lots of details to work out in manufacturing etc and I'm currently working on them. Unfortunately these things just can't be rushed! Thanks everyone!
Over 15 years ago, I dreamed of a "true" rainbow deck, a deck with the infamous Bicycle Back design but 52 different colors. After weeks of experimenting with ink jet printers, I hand made 3 decks and the first "Spectrum" decks were created. They were the finale in my color changing deck routine and the finish was so strong it quickly became a "closer" for my shows.
In 2012, the U.S.P.C.C. agreed to produce the official Bicycle Spectrum Deck and it was launched on Kickstarter. Much to my joy and surprise the project funded in just over 3 hours! Thirty days later a second run had been ordered to meet the demand (5000 total). In 2014, The Tally Ho Brand Spectrum deck was released with great success as well. To date, over 20,000 Spectrum decks have been printed and it remains a top seller in the Industry.
Now, the Spectrum Deck has come into it's own, Spectrum 52 is a self branded deck of beautiful playing cards following the same color scheme as the original. Featuring the Spectrum Ace of Spades, the Spectrum Jokers and a clean, elegant back design inspired by the classic casino decks from Jerry's Nugget, Bud Fulton's and the Wynn.
A "Happy Accident" spawns a second deck!
The original idea for Spectrum 52 was a plain deck with no logos or design, just color! But it wasn't enough, the deck needed "something". The Spectrum Logo and thin borders were added to create SPECTRUM 52. But I still liked the full bleed design so I kept tinkering until...
The "half spade" was put on the cards and the SPECTRUM EDGE deck was born!
The Spectrum 52 and EDGE decks will be made to the highest professional standards by the U.S. Playing Card Company,
Bee Card Stock with "embossed" finish.
If you've ever handled cards before, if you require the finest quality and feel in a deck of cards then you already know that the stock and finish used by the top casinos and the world's foremost experts is the "Bee" brand cards from the U.S.P.C.C. Professionals agree that there's nothing like a deck of "Bees" in your hands.
The deck will have 51 standard faces and the following "custom" Spectrum designs: The Ace of Spades (one for "52" and one for "EDGE", the Standard Joker and the Guarantee Joker (with reveal). There will be two special (gaff) cards included as well.
The bold black and red tuck boxes are designed to compliment each other as each presents half of the Spectrum Spade Logo...
I'm extremely grateful and proud to have been inspired to create the original Bicycle and Tally Ho branded Spectrum Decks. To be a part of playing card history is still like a dream come true for me!
To all the magic and card collector community I want to thank you in advance, for your understanding and support, friendship and kindness. If it weren't for kickstarter backers, there would still be only 3 Spectrum decks (and quite worn out ones) in existence, instead of tens of thousands! I hope together we can make this project a reality!
Please keep checking back for add ons and other surprises as the project progresses! My first little "thank you"...
