Hello Kickstarter, I am Soleil, a Swiss designer working here in San Francisco. I’ve always loved the awesome designs of playing cards so I've decided to make my very own deck - GLITCH.

This is a Mock-up. Frame might vary.

You'll receive one of my original hand designed Art cards mounted next to their twin USPCC printed card.

The cards are beautifully framed and ready to display. A one-of-a-kind work of Art!

*NOTE: This item is a Kickstarter special ($100 value).

♣ The Ace Poster

The Official GLITCH Ace Poster will be 24" x 18" - not too small and also not too big, just right :)

You can add it on by adding $25 to your pledge (Please write me a message and specify that you want the Poster). International shipping is $22 unless you already have a GLITCH Uncut Sheet then shipping will be free for the Poster :)

☕ THE MUG

Mugs are great, they facilitate drinking lots and lots of coffee and tea (which I am doing a lot of now that GLITCH is in the last days :)

Add the GLITCH Mug to your pledge for $20 (+ $13 for international shipping)

★ THE BRICK

Have you ever wondered if one deck is enough? No? Then how about 12 decks?

$14,000 STRETCHGOAL! 

As a BIG thank you - this app will be free for all Backers :)

♦ DESIGN PROCESS

As a designer I feel strongest when combining radicalism and classic design processes. I love the direct, intense visual language that GLITCH playing cards bring to the table.

Every card is unique and playable. Every shape, number, letter and glitch has been worked and re-worked.

The entire deck was mocked up by hand and refined in Illustrator.

Although the deck is generally black and red, I deepened its intensity by introducing opposing colors. 

It’s the combination of all these things that give GLITCH a voice and a story of its own that has never been seen on a deck of playing cards.

♣  PRINTING

The cards will be professionally printed by the legendary United States Playing Card Company that manufactures the famous Bicycle Brand. They have been printing cards since 1867 and they are the best!  

Check out this video for more on how they are printed: 

♠ T-SHIRT

Using a super high-end screen printing process on American Apparel T-Shirts, the ink is infused into the fabric. This results in a luxurious and soft shirt that won't fade or crack.

♥ FEATURED ON 

"Simulating the glitch authentic of faulty software with the use of scalpel slices, sporadic repetition and funky colour alteration."

"But there is not a problem with the printer, every detail in this deck is intentional, this is the Glitch deck."

" Swiss designer Soleil Zumbrunn has created a glitchy, visually striking remix of the classic playing card in her fantastic Glitch Playing Cards. "

Game night just got a lot glitchier.

Featured on SuperPunch 

"These warped playing cards bring the glitch aesthetic to royal flushes."

"The result is a deck of playing cards that constantly reminds players that reality could be an illusion, inspiring them to look for glitches in their own world."

 "It might not be everyone's cup of tea but this exceptional deck has been meticulously put together."

"A beautiful and simplistic design for this deck of cards, based on the idea of a glitch."

Risks and challenges

As a professional designer I know how to create a high-quality product and ship it on time.

The design, planning, and budgeting work is complete. I have established a relationship with USPCC and they are ready to accept the final artwork pending successful funding of GLITCH.

I'm working with one of the best t-shirt printers in the USA to produce the shirts and I have full confidence in their ability to produce a quality product.

I've budgeted a generous amount of time to complete the project. This breathing room will ensure that any unforeseen production problems will be resolved without delaying your cards.

Therefore, risks and challenges for this project are minimal.

With an obsession for detail and significant experience in print, I have completely planned out the logistics and deadlines to ensure that the expected delivery dates are met.

I will post updates regularly, so you can keep track of every stage of GLITCH coming to life.

Once again, thanks for the ♥ Kickstarter!
