Six months ago, Luna Moon was sold out in 24 hours. This time, we broke our own record. Esther Star was completely sold out in 19 Hours. We are so appreciative of all the excitement and support from our backers and we are beyond excited to bring out our stretch goal! Introducing: the Violet Luna Moon.

In the past few months, we have received hundreds of messages on Kickstarter, our company email, and social media, from backers who asked us to bring back the Luna Moon so they can add it to their collection. We truly understand your requests and we feel for you from the bottom of our hearts, but we just can’t reprint the original Luna Moon since we made a promise. After a lengthy debate that went back and forth for months between the team, we finally decided to bring out another edition and the LAST EDITION for Luna Moon - the Violet Luna Moon.

Violet Luna Moon is our gift and surprise for everyone that missed the first Luna Moon Campaign. We believe that you should have a second chance to complete the collection. The Violet Luna Moon is limited to 2500 sets, and this will be the Last Edition and the only other edition of the Luna Moon. No more reprints and No more Future Edition for Luna Moon.Period. Seize this last opportunity and add the Luna Moon to your collection.

If you are not a backer, Please select a Violet Luna Moon Reward on the Right side. 

If you are a Esther Star Backers, Please Do Not Select Any New Reward. Add on the Violet Luna Moon to your Current Pledge. Click the link below for Detailed Instructions!

It is said that the romance of men exists in the vast universe. This time, our journey is the starry sky.

VIOLET LUNA MOON

ESTHER STAR (SOLD OUT)

In the stillness of the night, when you look up at the starry sky, you will find that countless stars illuminate the entire galaxy. Only at this time will we realize that human beings are so small. Although the stars are not as dazzling as the sun and the moon, they symbolize the most precious qualities of mankind: loyalty and firmness.

This card case of Violet Luna Moon & Esther Star also uses the design of Luna Moon, and the green appearance symbolizes its relationship with the moon, just like flowers and green leaves. If you already have owned Helius Sun and the Luna Moon Playing Cards, it will become another legendary existence in your personal collection. If you haven’t got them, then it will make you no longer lonely and solitary, but with hope instead.

Esther Star Playing Cards is not only a milestone in our creation, but also represents every person who loves hie or her life. For them, this is a beautiful symbol and imprint. The stars are restrained and subtle, which walk among the clouds, reminding us with shimmering shimmer the meaning of life by welcoming every day seriously.

Both Violet Luna Moon & Esther Star include two versions: Classic and Luxury Edition. Each Edition is Limited to 2500 Decks. The latter continues to use the open fan-shaped design of Helius Sun and Luna Moon series, but changes some of the details. The box's regular hexagonal opening is like the starlight, which is bright and tidy, neither dazzling nor bleak.

The overall green design is more visually comfortable, and green also symbolizes new life and hope, just like every unknown planet. Maybe on every planet there will exist vitality and expectations, and this card is also a new life and ideas in the cardistry design.

The track around the star and the trajectory of the moon on the card box are both indicating that the universe is constantly moving in the course of operation and reincarnation, just like everything in this world.

In the dark night sky, the nebulous nebula is floating, rendering the silence and the mysterious planets that have not yet been discovered. On the back of the card, there are stars shining below the moon, with the background of the deep and mysterious space. In the context of such repressed chaos, it is the starlight that guides us forward in the right direction. 

The role on the card back has also been replaced by the protagonist of this deck of cards - the stars. The combination of stars and orbits, just like the inherent laws in the universe, keeps running. Just like the merits of each of us, there is an infinite radiance around the stars.

In view of the overall beauty of the playing cards, the original black color on Spades & Clubs has been replaced by the green one, which improves the integrity of the work. While continuing the gorgeous appearance of the series, it seems that the Esther Star Playing Cards have been added the soul with an inherent introverted quality, constantly telling you the secrets of the deep space.

The Ace of Spade are based on ancient astrological mysteries. Whether it is the modern scientific calculation of the universe or the ancient people's hypothesis of astronomy, the stars play a vital role in it. And this card shows the essence of the two. The pattern here is the star cluster totem depicted by the ancient human sacrifice divination. For the ancients, the mystery hidden in the stars can reveal the future, so we also hope to give everyone a bright future through this card.

The phrase “STAR OF HOPE” on the JOKER card answers the question why this deck of cards is called Esther, just like the Persian queen Esther in the Bible was called the “Star of Hope”. It will also bring new inspiration and hope to the cardistry, designers and collectors.

JOKER is the star of hope that we are familiar with - Polaris. I can often hear people say: If you get lost, look up the North Star and follow it in the direction, then you will find a way out. Because the position of the Polaris is relatively stable and difficult to change, it gives people the feeling of being loyal with its own position.

From a life perspective, Polaris has the meaning to lead us to the goal, just as it allows us to tell the right direction. From the perspective of love, the Polaris symbolizes firmness, persistence and eternal guardianship. If it can be anthropomorphic, then it must have a commitment to the star that is close to it, or it will not leave the guardian, such as the moon, although they are far away, the North Star is still guarding. So the Polaris is very firm, symbolizing that it will never change!

The Luxury edition card box is made of German Kurz gold foil paper, which is 9 times the price of standard one! The common cards are made of Neenah Paper which is imported from France, and the required paper quantity is 7 times that of USPC standard card box!

It took nearly half a year to produce a card box from the structural design to the test, involving the selection of the samples for several times, only for the same functional effects after countless opening and closing tests. Each card box is hand-made, and it also takes fifteen to twenty minutes to complete one with proficiency, which is full of devout craftsmanship.

We have sent out many SAMPLES to people in the playing card community, we want our customers to try it out and we listen to your feedbacks to improve the details. And here is a First Look of the Esther Star Playing Cards from our friends RISE MAGIC.

The Playing Cards itself is printed on the Finest quality card stock the United States Playing Card Company has to offer.

Risks and challenges

We learned a lot from our Previous Project, and we translated those experiences into motivation to continuously improve our product and service. After launching multiple highly successful Kickstarter campaigns, I have found the formula to simplifying and enhancing the launch process. I have built strong, stable relationships with United States Playing Card Co and Bocopo Warehouse. All artwork has been received and approved and we are now waiting to confirm the final number. The production and shipment of the cards can result in minor delays, but I've negotiated tight deadlines with our partners to ensure on-time delivery as promised.
