About

I am proud to introduce Rock 'N' Roll playing cards. As a huge fan of rock, but with zero musical talent, this deck is my way of paying tribute to Rock 'N' Roll. 

For those about to pledge for Rock 'N' Roll playing cards, we salute you.

Each suit represents an era of Rock 'N' Roll.  The Spades represent the original 1950's era.  The Hearts represent the iconic 1960's era.  The Diamonds represent the 1970's era. The Clubs represent the 1980's-1990's rock era.   

More court cards will be revealed throughout the campaign.

 The Rock 'N' Roll Jokers feature a unique diptych design.

The Rock "N' Roll card back portrays the distinct identity of rock 'n' roll; featuring an original design inspired by the paisley bandanas worn by many legendary rockers.  Each of the circular, flower-like designs are made up of 12 small guitar silhouettes.  Together, the paisley designs form a mirror image of two skulls.  The skulls evoke the spirit of the rebel rocker who lives by a different set of rules. 

These are beautiful high quality custom black celluloid 0.80 gauge guitar picks. They are made in the USA by people who know how to rock! They are included (as a set of 3) in the $35 Reward tier, or can be added to any order for $5 (for a set of  2). 

 The Rock 'N' Roll Coin is a premium grade 2 inch dealer coin that comes in an antique silver finish. The best part....it doubles as a bottle opener! You can add it to any order for $9

        

You may add as many items to your order as you would like.  Simply calculate the price of the items and add it to your pledge amount.  After the 30 day funding period, we will send you a Kickstarter survey to confirm your order.  

*We will not be using Backerkit so be sure to add everything you would like before the funding period ends.  

*Sticker Pack includes high quality stickers featuring artwork from the deck.   

My name is Ari Steffen. I work as a graphic artist and photographer. I have been a fan of playing cards for as long as I can remember. 

I enjoy card games and poker in particular. I decided to combine my skills as a graphic artist with my love of playing cards and when I finally stumbled across Kickstarter, everything fell into place. 

My wife and I had a great time with the entire process of creating and distributing Radical 80's Playing Cards (californiaplayingcards.com). We enjoyed interacting with Kickstarter, working with the USPCC and getting to know the playing card community. We enjoyed it so much in fact, we're back for more. 

We are excited to present Rock 'N' Roll playing cards through Kickstarter.  With your help, Rock 'N' Roll Playing Cards will become more than just a dream on my hard drive. By backing this project, you will help create the hardest rocking deck of playing cards in Bicycle's 129 year history. 

Thank you for being part of this project. For those about to pledge for Rock 'N' Roll Playing Cards; we salute you!

Risks and challenges

This is my second Kickstarter playing card deck. During my first project I established a working relationship with the United States Playing Card Co. I learned the ins and outs of Kickstarter and Amazon Payments. I became an expert in domestic and international shipping, and became very friendly with my local postmaster. Having been through the entire process, I know what it will take to bring the highest quality rewards to you in a timely manner. I will work tirelessly to overcome any obstacles that may arise. I will post regular project updates to keep you informed.
