About

Who do you see in the mirror?

When you look in the mirror do you see a princess or prince charming? Do you see a future rock star? Do you see someone who needs some healthy self-improvement?  The perception that we see of ourselves in the mirror can be very different from reality. In my mind, you and your reflection are forces to be reckoned with and possess more potential than you think. 

With that in mind, Mike and I had fun putting this concept into a form of art, and we thought the best way to get it out there is through high end playing cards.

All face cards have been mirrored and are ready to be printed by Bicycle and the USPCC. The face cards were created and mastered by Mike and I which was no easy task. We soon found out these cards were never truly created to be mirrored.

What’s Under the Hood?

The Reflections deck by Classics Features:

  • 52 beautifully designed cards 
  • Mirror Effect
  • Embedded Gears
  • Hidden Morse Code 
  • Shattered Suits on all Face Cards
  • Printed on Bicycle stock
  • Coated with Bicycle’s Patented Finish
  • Limited Edition – a Canadian Kickstarters Special!

Control the Finished Project

Stretch Goals 

• 150% - Shatter the Suits of Every Card 

• 175% - Custom Gaff Cards 

• 200% - Custom Mirrored Jokers 

 The Face Cards 

The reason we have called this line Classics is because we wanted to keep that classic look and feel that has held up to the test of time, despite our desire to re-engineer the cards. It is our belief that if you customize a card so it is not readily discernible, the cards become difficult and frustrating to play with, and lose their heritage (no matter what brand name you put on the deck). All of these cards had to be totally remade while using the original art as a guideline. The true art is in the fine detail.

 The Tuck Box 

Fashioned after the vintage 1920's high end cigarette cases, this tuck box is stamped with Classics’ emblem. Sharp red lines pop out like the silk tie on a sharp suit.

Framed Art Work

The King of Clubs, the original from the Kickstarters launch video, encased in chester red frame and quality glass. This is also a great example of how the art work will be framed and presented.

Shipping and Quality Control

We are using the leading card producer, the USPCC, because quality is

essential, plain and simple. We need top of the line canvas and they can provide that.  

Being coaches, managers, and business owners we understand the importance in meeting deadlines. This is why we have set the delivery date in January as we cannot guarantee the decks to be delivered by Christmas.  HOWEVER, items such as the poster, artwork, embedded name artwork, and the 4 kings will be in your hands before Christmas, that I can guarantee.  

We would be happy to provide a stocking stuffer note to accompany those items that arrive before the cards indicating that a deck of cards is soon to be delivered. Please message the request before the end of the Kickstarters event as those orders will be sent out hastily preceding the launch.

Risks and challenges

Please help us make this happen!

Don't forget to spread the word, without that this project cannot succeed. Thank you for taking a look at our project and we look forward to shipping out these decks and incentives your way!
