UPDATE!

SIGNATURE EDITION is now available! The definition of luxury in playing cards: Silky fabric from Spain binding a golden stock tuck case with inside printing. Hot stamped in gold foil, hand numbered and signed! If you want 1 Signature deck, select the corresponding pledge tier. If you want more Signature decks, see details in update #5.

Welcome to our project!

AMBASSADORS Player's Edition is a LIMITED Edition classic looking deck with Lotrek's take on the standard courts and an intricate back design. A deck for the demanding player and collector who wants to combine perfect usability and handling with a classy and elegant touch, Player's Edition is the follow up to the previously released luxurious Collector's Edition.

 

 The Limited Red Edition will have a rich red color for the back along with black and a shiny gold metallic ink. Also metallic inks will be used for the faces. For the tuck case a classy white stock will be used, allowing a very clear foiling and deep embossing.

 The Limited Edition green decks will have a dominant metallic blueish Green ink for the back and metallic inks for the face cards.

Both decks will be numbered with a seal glued on the bottom of the deck (work in progress) so as the tuck case won't be damaged if opened. Maximum 1500 decks will be printed from each color and will never be printed again.

  Courts are based on the traditional standard ones. However, everything has been redesigned from scratch in an effort to achieve high detail and elegance, while keeping them simple and immediately recognizable. A discrete pattern in gold metallic ink will be the background throughout the whole deck (courts, Aces and figures) adding visual interest without being "loud". Generally we've tried to find a balance between complete customization, intricate elements and a light and pleasant appearance.

This was particularly painful. More than 10 variations were designed that each time seemed to be "final" but they didn't really work until I came up with the back that made me say: "That's it"!

In both editions there will be 3 colors used for the back: Metallic gold, Black and Turquoise Green for the green Edition versus Metallic Gold, Black and Red for the red edition.

  •  54 Poker size fully custom cards
  •  Printed by EPCC in their Taiwan factory
  • Classic finish
  • Limited edition of maximum 1500 numbered decks for each color
  • Custom seal with serial # at the bottom of the tuck case
  • Full metallic inks on the faces and back on both editions
  • Gold foil and embossing on the tuck
  •  

 The Collector's Edition was released a few days ago during a 48h presale which was a big success. The two versions (red and grey) were printed on graphite and red pearlescent stocks. Metallic inks were used for the faces while the back was gold foil stamped in amazing detail and clarity. There will be 50 decks of each color available during KS and you can get them either directly from UCdecksales.com or by selecting the "COLLECTOR'S EDITION" reward here. You can also have them as an Add-on to your existing pledge (see the Add-on price list at the bottom of the page).  

  

 The feedback we got from people who already bought the decks is pretty boring: It ranges from amazing to stunning! 

Note: The decks purchased through UCdecksales will be sent immediately, while decks selected as rewards or Add-ons will be sent 15 days after the campaign's end. These are shipping separately from Greece, while the Player's Edition ships from the United States.

STRETCH GOALS

  • $20K: Metallic inks on the faces for the Limited Edition
  • $22K: Inner tuck printing

-Stay tuned as we've prepared a couple of crispy treats along the way as stretch goals that will gradually unfold. 

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

As always, the main risk is the possible delay. However, since the artwork is already 100% completed we'll try to make things with EPCC move as fast as possible -to the extend we can.
