About this project

 MINT deck unlocked!  $16k stretch-goal reached!

 Now that we've reached $16k in funding, the second color deck - MINT is now available!  Inspired by money, the cards feature green, black and metallic inks on an ivory background.  Packaged in a charcoal and silver tuck box, with a new ornate front graphic.

All backers pledged for 2 or more decks have the option of replacing up to half of their Original White decks for Mint.  (For example: pledge for 4 decks and receive up to 2 Mint decks with 2 White decks.)

Four Point Playing Cards is an original deck of cards designed by Ben Vierck. Drawing inspiration from the intricate designs of money, ancient symbols, impossible geometry, and yoga mudras; the original art was illustrated by hand. Each court card, ace, joker, card back and box illustration are offered on Kickstarter as rewards to help fund the production of the deck. Designed in San Francisco and made in the USA, this top-quality deck is manufactured by the legendary United States Playing Card Company (USPCC).

Risks and challenges

I've spent the last 6 months researching, designing and sourcing this project. However, obstacles can arise unexpectedly. Potential set-backs include production delays or sourcing issues. That being said, I feel extremely confident in the suppliers and the conservative timeline I've chosen. As an experienced industrial designer, I've brought many complex products to market on time.

FAQ

  • You can add-on any number of items to any pledge level at any time while the project is funding. Once you're a backer, click "Manage My Pledge" and simply adjust the dollar amount. This amount is your original pledge plus the total of all the add-on items you want. It's important that you send me a message with all your add-on items, so I can accurately track it. Once the project closes, a survey will be sent-out to all backers. Make sure you fill this out so I can fulfill all the orders correctly.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, if we reach $8k in funding all decks will have a custom 3-eyed tiger seal. If we reach $12k, all decks will come in an embossed tuck box.

    Last updated:
  • If we reach $16k in funding, all backers that have pledged for 2 decks or more are eligible to swap-out up to half of their original (WHITE) decks for the MINT deck. Single deck pledges will receive the original WHITE deck. The MINT deck will be available as an add-on item as well. Backers can always change their pledge level while the project is open and funding. The backer survey will be sent-out at the close of the project, and this is where you will specify how many of each deck you would like to receive.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, while it is not listed under the add-on menu, you can still add-on a brick (12 decks) for $110 to any pledge level.
