About

The Blacklight Monster Deck was inspired by many late nights of the Creature Feature Hour. Being frightened to watch, but not being able to resist knowing what was going to happen next. Now, I'm bringing back that Classic Feel, BONE-CHILLING HORROR, one playing card at a time.

Relive the TERROR, the FRIGHT, and all the things that go BUMP in the night through this SPINE-TINGLING, PSYCHEDELIC Deck!

Each Suit was specifically designed with each monster in mind and truly represents their personalities and their essence, while each Royal Family tells their own frightening tale. The blacklight coloring effect was only added to give the characters a unique artistic interpretation unlike any other.

GOAL

My goal is to get one (or more) of these cool decks into your hands so that you can enjoy endless hours of entertainment with your family and friends. It's all about making memories that last forever.

With Halloween, one of the world's oldest holidays celebrated around the world with a variety of somber, spooky and fun traditions - and my personal favorite, approaching, it's the perfect time to debut the Blacklight Monster Deck and start a new Halloween tradition.

The Blacklight Monster Deck would definitely make a great conversation piece, or you can even give them out as gifts to all of the Boils and Ghouls you know. Christmas is right around the corner again, and this unique gift, that stands out from the rest, will make someone very happy.

I want to print the Blacklight Monster Deck on quality professional paper (300 gsm), casino quality, using three laminations.

Each Blacklight Monster Deck will come with a custom design tuck box shrink wrapped with cellophane.

Our goal amount of $5,000 will go to printing playing card decks and prints, to pay for shipping, and to pay for Kickstarter fees.

If we reach 250%, we will upgrade the quality of the deck to the best casino quality using German imported black core paper (either 310 gsm or 330 gsm). That would be awesome!

I will also be adding cool incentives as we reach and exceed our goal. 

Also, take advantage of the Early Creature Feature Specials before all of the other monsters eat em' up!

CLUBS

Each Suit incorporates all of the unique symbols and letters on all of the Number Cards as well.

HEARTS

SPADES

DIAMONDS

There will be 2 Surprise Mystery Monster Cards printed with each deck that will not be revealed. The only way to find out what they are is when you receive your deck in the mail. But I promise, you'll love em'

.

Art Prints

These 4 unique Andy Warhol inspired Art Prints can be added on to your reward for only $10.00 each USA or $15.00 each International. 

Prints are 8.5 x 11 with your choice of either all Kings, all Queens, all Jacks, or all Aces, are printed on glossy card stock, and framed, would make any wall proud.

Please help spread the SPOOKY word and share this project link anywhere you can.

I Thank-You for checking out my Blacklight Monster Deck Kickstarter Project, and I hope you give me the opportunity to put the Scare back into your Step!  

Risks and challenges

As with any project, there is always some risk that everything might not go according to schedule. I have already designed all of the cards and prints, have researched the printer, and once the Kickstarter is funded, will be ready to go to print. I will keep all of my backers updated on the process and will not sleep until every backer gets their rewards and smiles have been delivered.

I have also produced 2 other successful Kickstarter Projects for my Sci-Fi Graphic Novel Trilogy called "The Ultimate 7", so I know exactly what is involved after a Kickstarter project is funded. I wrote, created, and produced the comic book max-series (one epic, continuous story), and all 384 pages are completed in full color. The story is in the vein of Star Wars (grew up on it) and Lord of the Rings (loved em' all), with the character dynamics of the Avengers.

"The Ultimate 7" Volume 2 Kickstarter ended on September 14th, and right now I'm kicking it into full gear to get rewards out to my backers. Backer info. has been requested, the final proofs have been approved, the books are being printed (they should arrive any day now), the prints have been made and signed by the artist, artists are working on the art sketches and paintings, and email PDF's are being processed. Everything is going according to schedule, and all Vol. 2 rewards will be sent out before the Blacklight Monster Deck's Kickstarter finishes. Backers will probably even receive their rewards early like they did on my Vol. 1 Kickstarter. And I'll be ready and waiting on the Blacklight Monster Deck.

After the Blacklight Monster Deck Project is finished and all rewards have been delivered, I plan on releasing "The Ultimate 7" Volume 3 Kickstarter by the end of the year. So if you're into Sci-Fi and want to see more freaky and cool monsters and creatures, plus where they come from, please check out my website www.theultimate7.com to read Volume 1 for Free and join in on the action. All 3 Volumes will be available during this Kickstarter Event.

This is my first Playing Card Experience, and I am super excited about having this opportunity through Kickstarter to share the Blacklight Monster Deck with all of you. I am very confident in my abilities, and strive to providing all of my backers my utmost best every time!
