Designer Playing Cards + CMYK Trumps Deck

£2,986

232

Hello I'm James, and this is a set of playing cards. But not any old playing cards. In fact, this is probably the most colourful deck of playing cards you're ever going to find, and it can be yours for as little as £5!

The deck consists of 54 coloured cards (including Jokers), each presenting their CMYK colour values, allowing you to:

  • Play the 'colourfulest' game of poker you've ever played!
  • Play a game of trumps using the CMYK values, C96!
  • Carry around your very own pocket swatches tool. 
  • Create a beautiful rainbow wheel, to, well, just look at...

The cards will arrive at your door in a neatly presented shrink wrapped tuck box, making it the perfect gift for:

  • Card collectors.
  • Graphic designers.
  • Playing card fanatics.
  • Everyone else. Come on, we all like colours!

I'm so excited to bring this deck of cards to you and we're nearing closer to the target. I have already printed a one-off pack (as shown in photos) on 300gsm Smooth Silk and I have to say the quality was very impressive, you're gonna love them!

Any profit made will go towards my setup costs as a freelance graphic designer of which I hope to bring you even more projects further down the line.

A unique limited edition kickstarter card is available for first backers. Now SOLD OUT.
