Four Point Playing Cards - USPCC Printed

$21,436

473

 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.
