This July, we finished all the luxury series prototype with Taiwan Playing Card Company. Redesigned from the white/yellow edition, and newly-developed printing techniques until this campaign launched.
In addition to Classic Red and Blue extension, we utilised a high brightness printing technique that offers an incomparable rainbow colouring.
Inspired by the ancient art of Chinese bronze mirror-making, the Copper Foil Edition is designed to play with the light, giving flourishes that extra flair. Large area foil printing is difficult and easy-failed in production. Most of printer will reject the order, but we’ve done it by our passion.
Behind the Stories
The Rainbow Edition can not be printed by 54 plates for each single color. We need to mix from 4 colors by CMYK with print craftsmen to present the 54-card brightness spectrum colouring. This had taken us 1-2 weeks in the testing over and over again to make sure we can present full 54 colours correctly. Now, we’re proud to require all of you to back the campaign to have it after mass production. You will be amazed.
The Copper Foil Edition require a large area foil printing. This has been taken us half a year in prototype production. Hot foil printing isn’t really stability in production. It depend on everything are matched completely. Please understand that playing cards stock even include the pattern on its surface. Sometimes the hot foil printing will also make the card out of shape by special artwork. Don't forget it's the thinner and softer paper stock. These are production limitation to force us trying, replacing, modifying and reprinting over and over again! However, we’re proud to share with you that we finally have a success way to produce with the artwork.
Both of editions were have the challenges, so they will be limited editions. Don’t miss them if you love the whole details like the unique rainbow foil tuckcase or foiling cards.
All decks will be printed by TWPCC’s softer Luxury Paper Stock with Legendary Finish. Both Rainbow and Copper Foil Editions will also be printed with Metallic Red, Metallic Blue and Golden Inks on the suits and the court cards.
