Olympus will be a limited 2,500 deck production by the US Playing Card Company. They will be sold in limited quantity and it will not be reprinted or released again.

Risks and challenges

The art for the Olympus Bicycle® Playing Cards is finished, approved, and ready to submit to USPCC if the goal is reached. Since this is my first project I have tried to keep pledges and add ons as simple as possible. The funding of this project rests solely on you, the backers. Figuring out pricing and shipping is not an exact science. I am not looking to make a profit. I am just looking to cover the production and shipping costs of the cards.
