About

I have been a deck collector for quite a while now, and have yet to find a Canadian deck that isn't filled with stock photos of scenery (basically a souvenir deck).   So, having combined that fact and my passion for playing cards, I have designed a deck of playing cards with a Canadian theme.  

The deck will feature maple leaves instead of the the typical spade suit.  The suit colours will be two shades of red (bright red, and maroon), instead of red & black like in a typical deck of cards.  

The most customization for the deck can be found on the court cards.  I have featured nine world famous Canadian magicians.  They are (in alphabetic order): 

Bill Abbott

Juliana Chen


Philip DaCosta

Julie Eng

Celeste Evans

Shawn Farquhar

Greg Frewin

Jason Palter

Richard Sanders

The rest of the court cards will feature representations of Canadian sports, i.e.: basketball (invented by a Canadian), 

hockey (as Canadian as you can get),

 and lacrosse (Canada's national summer sport).

The back design is one that I feel is simple and elegant.  It features our national colours of red and white, and our symbolic maple leaf.

I have been in extensive talks with the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC) to go over costs and protocol, and everything is in line.

I have also gone to great lengths to get the most accurate shipping charges for all over the world.  Having said that, I am going to be including tracking with all shipping.  Yes, this raises the price a bit, but I would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to ensuring you get your packages.

As for all of the add-ons, I have ensured that they were all made in Canada.  Unfortunately, the actual deck needs to be printed in the US, but, because of the USPCC's superior quality, and world wide recognition, I feel that they are the industry leader in custom playing card production, and therefore the decks will be printed by them.

TUCK BOX:

A lot of people have been asking about the tuck box design...well, here it is:

At first, the box will not be branded with Bicycle on it.  That will be our Stretch Goal of $16,000.  I would LOVE to get Bicycle on the box, but to keep the funding goal as low as possible, I decided to make it a stretch goal.  The most important thing to me is to get the deck printed.  The tuck box saying "Bicycle" is a goal to aim for AFTER the initial $11,000 gets raised.

Risks and challenges

As far as risks go, the only thing I can see as a set back would be shipping by the estimated date. If there are production set backs or whatnot that is out of my control. Other than that I will do my best to get the decks in your hands as soon as possible!

Shipping prices might seem high for international shipping, but I am choosing to go with tracking. I have shipped too many packages that have gotten lost in the mail to overseas people. If you want to save on shipping, and are overseas, please send me a message, and I can work out a cheaper shipping rate for you, but I will not assume any responsibility if the shipment gets lost in the mail.
