      I got mine (eastern USA) today! they are awesome.
      In regards to your upcoming project that you have displayed on the website, I would back that project, but I would like to see either a border or something on them, They look cool but a little plain otherwise.

      *color rather than suit.

      Looking forward to receiving this rainbow of cards. My family is used to me pulling out different decks, but I think this may become a favorite... they may however try to make up games based on colon rather than suit. It is always fascinating to watch them create their own games.

      Hi, I am wondering what the schedule will be? Should I give you my shipping address?

      I've seen campaigns go much closer to the wire than this (and nudged a few over the line myself) so I'm glad this one got there with days to spare. Sometimes I think that seeing the campaign already "funded" gives some backers the confidence to pledge. Takes the 'speculation' element out of it (especially if you are on limited funds and want to hedge against several different campaigns).

      @ NeilAndrew: haha, so close! And I hope so �

      C'mon . . . almost there!
      There'll be a surge in the last three days for sure. :-)

      What company are you using to actually print these cards?

    23. James Creator on June 3, 2016

      @ Michele Paroli: thank you!

      Really love this project! I'm both an architect and a card collector!
      I found the idea to have both a game and a designing tool very exciting!

      I'm looking forward to see you funded!
      Good luck!

      @ Karen Au: thanks for your suggestion. I did play with a range of concepts originally including black/white but felt that CMYK squares, with in between tones created a funky colourful pattern that ties in with the colourful aesthetic of the pack. It's a simple pattern, but effective I feel �

      Karen Au on June 2, 2016

      May I suggest a different back for the cards. The whole look is so simple, why not continue the simplicity on the back of the cards-- perhaps a play of black and white.

    27. James Creator on May 31, 2016

      @ Santiago: you raise a good point. I wouldn't see these being used for a serious game of cards, they are a bit of fun! When looking from the top of the deck down you don't notice the colours as much, it's only because the photo shows them in order and side on. Plus the back design helps distract from that. I could possibly create a white border, however I think they will then lose the aesthetic i'm trying to achieve with the deck. Thanks for the feedback.

    28. Santi on May 31, 2016

      In the picture "Designer Playing Cards Sealed Deck" you can difenciar the color of the cards on the edge. I think for a fairer and avoid pitfalls game, the edge should be unified in all the cards.

    29. James Creator on May 31, 2016

      @ Alejandro Castro Madrigal: I'm glad you like the idea and thank you for your pledge. I could stick suits to colours making it easier to play, but it wouldn't have the same aesthetic rainbow effect as you mentioned. I'll certainly take your comment on board!

    30. Alejandro Castro Madrigal
      on May 31, 2016

      I really like this idea, I feel the color choosing should match each suit more strongly to improve playability and games that rely on traditional black vs red colors might be harder to play. Of course for display purposes they are gorgeous. Looking forward for a successful run.

      Hi James,
      can I know who prints the deck?
      Thanks Alberto

      This is actually a very cool deck and should appeal to geeks as well as card collectors. :)
