About

Bloodlines: Custom Playing Cards

$12,000

398

As a professional designer and an amateur magician - this is my dream project. I've been collecting cards myself for several years now. While I've always loved the variety that's out there, the designer in me has always wanted to try my hand at my own version.

Bloodlines derives it's name from the tradition of playing cards - 4 royal families. When I embarked on this design challenge, I tasked myself with ensuring the court cards in this set felt like they belonged together. Each "family" has their own traits and personalities, which I hope you will find unique and refreshing to your typical deck of 52. 

I will be printing with the United States Playing Card Company - famous for their Bicycle® Playing Cards. They continue to deliver high quality cards and expert printing - ensuring that this deck will be a beautiful piece in your card collection. With your help, we can make these cards a reality! 

 The Cards

Each card is stylized to have a distinct, textural quality.

The Tuckbox

The goal is to utilize the highest quality printing techniques for the tuckbox. My plan is to use gold foil - and if we go beyond our goal, embossing. 

The Rewards

Uncut Sheets! These are incredibly beautiful and look great on the wall!

Posters

These 11" x 17" wildcard posters will be screen printed with metallic ink by local Durham shop owner & legend, Lenny - of Hey Monkey! Design

Risks and challenges

This is several layers of complex printing! At the end of the day, delays can happen! I will keep backers updated every step of the process.
