Welcome to the First Edition of the Top Secret Press Elite Series. This new series of decks feature high quality 310 gsm Black Core playing card on linen cardstock. Depending on Stretch Goals, this deck may also feature metallic inks on the cards as well as the awesome new all black tuckbox design! All decks and tuckboxes will be sealed.
This first deck features the artwork of Argentinian artist Claudio Aboy. Claudio has worked for a variety of major publishers and projects such as Heavy Metal Magazine, Star Wars and DC Comics. Now his work is collected here on a Limited Edition set of high quality cards.
The 54 card set (52 suit cards + 2 Jokers) will feature 13 images on four suits, 2 covers and a Back. That is a total of 16 images for this quality set of cards.This deck is as beautiful as it is functional and versatile for magic, card flourishing or even just a game of poker!
The Tuckbox reflects the same quality as the cards themselves.

Risks and challenges
Welcome to the eighth Top Secret Press playing card Kickstarter! With seven other Playing Card Kickstarter projects behind me, I still felt I needed to 'raise the bar' on the quality of my product. So that is what I have done this time!
Introducing the Top Secret Press Elite line of Playing Cards first offering: Top Secret Press Elite Edition! This is the first of The Claudio Aboy Premium Series card decks. These decks feature high quality linen stock paper (310 gsm) as well as Black Core centers. Even better, if we can reach the Stretch Goals, we can unlocked metallic ink for the cards, the tuckbox and possibly linen paper for the boxes!
Of course, I still have some of my previous Kickstarter decks, but quantities are limited. I've also listed final print totals for those interested (see above).
I am keeping the price down on the decks as much as possible. Obviously, adding to the quality is adding to the price, but not too much. About a $1 a deck.
Production on the decks will be a maximum of 500 and a minimum of 250 decks. This is how it works: If we reach our goal ($2400), then we will print 250 decks. If we go on and reach a stretch goal with Golden Foil, then it will be 500. Of course, this is academic at this writing. We just need to reach the goal first!
There are always challenges to making projects. What they are, you never know. Some Kickstarters go really smooth, others take a bumpy road. Regardless, in the end, all the problems can be surpassed with a little patience and effort.
I would like to point out that after a project, I keep everyone updated regularly until the Incentives are fulfilled. With Card Decks, this is a fairly smooth process now. Normally a few months after the Kickstarter. This has changed some, Kickstarter holds money for 3 weeks instead of 2 weeks. This shouldn't affect my delivery times too much, but I just like to keep everyone on the same page.
Okay, thanks for taking the time to look! I Hope you will Back and support the project!
