Welcome to my project -A deck of playing cards that takes Black Mass to a new level of obscure beauty.
"GROTESK Macabre BLACK GOLD" is the next step in printing on black stock. Featuring an insanely detailed back design, it is the first deck ever printed on black stock with hot stamped foil on both the card backs and faces!
>>>>The deck will be available exclusively to Kickstarter backers and only the number of decks sold during this 7-day funding period will be produced.<<<<
A bit of history...
Back in October 2015 Grotesk Macabre was funded in KS. During the campaign I released "BLACK MASS": a special edition of the deck, actually the first deck of playing cards printed with metallic inks on black stock with air pocket finish. The production of this deck was delayed due to problems I had with my former printer. Now, a few days before I begin the production of BLACK MASS, I'm taking advantage of the timing to print and deliver both decks at the same time.
These cards are from the first -scrapped- print run but they can give an idea of the deck's look.
- 54 cards poker size
- printed on Black Stock with air-pocket finish
- Metallic inks on the face cards
- Foil on the back of all cards
- 2 color foil embellishments on the face cards
- Printed in Greece by HMPC
- Two Editions: Black Gold and Black Silver
- Hand numbered and signed on the bottom of the tuck
- Tuck cases printed on pearlescent black stock with hot stamped Gold/Silver foil and deep embossing
- Interior foil for the tuck cases.
The deck will be printed immediately after collecting the funds and will have been shipped from Greece with registered mail to all backers by the 30th of July. Shipping costs worldwide are included in the prices you see with the exception of bricks where shipping costs are added.
- If funding reaches $10000, foil will be added to the face cards! These will be embellishments under the pips on each card. >>>>>>>>>>>REACHED!!!<<<<<<<<<
- $15000 A second color foil goes on the face cards -REACHED!

Risks and challenges
I'm tempted to say that I have secured every step of the production in order to avoid problems. However, experience has shown that problems always may occur. In any case the only real risk is failing to deliver in time. The experience I acquired from my past projects where I had to face the most crazy obstacles make me confident that we don't have to worry this time.
