Hi,

my name is Ryszard Blaszczyk and I'm a young magician from Poland. Magic was always my biggest passion. I started to perform when I was just a little kid. Now I’m 21, I carry at least one deck with me everywhere I go. I can’t imagine myself leaving house without them.

Let me tell you about my dreams that are about to come true. It’s all about this campaign. After being so close to the world of magic and cards, finally comes the moment when I can put piece of me into it. Making playing cards was always my number one goal. I love the idea of creating art. Our deck was designed to give you an amazing experience for magic and cardistry. It is perfect for everybody and we’re sure we won’t disappoint you.  
 

Let me introduce You to Cloud 9 by DifferentDecks.


The Basics

  • UPDATE (May 3, 2019): Now with custom, numbered seals!
  • 52 custom cards, 2 custom identical Jokers, Double Backer and Special Gaff card, all wrapped into the custom tuck box, with a few secrets included
  • Printed on the best casino quality stock by United States Playing Cards Company
  • Crushed Bee stock by USPCC (the classic, the best)
  • Perfect for magic and cardistry
  • Limited run debut deck by DifferentDecks
  • Designed by DifferentDecks x WORG studio wizualizacji
  • Made with true passion 
  • Please see FAQs above for a few more answers!


Design

I was walking down the beach with my sister's lovely labradors and I stopped to lay on the sand for a while. Chill a little... So I started thinking about the design. I looked up and what I saw was just a blue sky. It was perfection - only two beautiful clouds, pure and white drifting away... It was almost like a painting, I though "damn, that's it, we got it!" 

Now when you see our cards, it's easy to feel that way. Imagine laying on the beach... feeling warm sand between your feet and dreaming. 

This is pure perfection. This is Cloud 9...

Design

*prototype of a deck has a default on a back design (look on a cloud in a left corner, second one should be without line too) They DON'T fully represent final product. Check virtual pictures to see future Cloud 9.

Back design 

Let's start from beginning... 

We've put every possible detail into the consideration and we came up with perfect combination of a summery, light, beautiful design. Sun, sea and surf.  The perfect summer vibe. That's it! When You look up to the sky, you see two symmetrical clouds opposite to each other with a bit of a swirl action going on inside. That's exactly what we have in mind.

Custom faces

A beautiful back design was not enough. Custom faces was the next big step for us.

As lovers of detail, we were trying to do something totally different than a standard deck of a playing cards. Just unique. 

Thinking that our back design is all about the sky and summer, so why not add balloons? They match that theme perfectly. We mixed vibrant blue and rose color to get THAT fresh look.

Kings 

What would be a royal family without a king? Unique unrepeatable design. We're proud of how they look and we're not afraid to call them our best. Look at the details, polished strong line.

If you look closer at our cards, can you see similarity? Are you sure? There's more...

Kings

Queens

Each card from our deck is somehow inspired by our experience, lifestyle, everyday life or even people around us. It gives greater value to every piece. It could be taken personally and relate to You. Can you see the resemblance to someone you know?

Jacks

The first face card that we had opportunity to design was the Jack of clubs. We struggled back and forth with them, but we are more than overwhelmed to show you our final cards. They are similar but not the same, small differences in features and facial expressions make them all special on their own way.

Aces

We wanted to change routine, usually you see Ace of spades as a special main card in a deck. In Cloud 9 we offer you Ace of Hearts as our favourite type of a balloon, simple with our name on it. All the aces were designed bigger and more visible for you. It made them easier for performing magic but in cardistry they will definitely catch attention.

Numbers

We designed all face cards - yes even number cards are all custom designs. Each card has a balloon pip somewhere on a face, we changed colours as well, light blue and light pink perfectly match the back design. Here you can find one random card from each suit that represents the design. We don't want to take your joy of exploring them now. You'll have to hunt them out!

Jokers

Jokers are one of our favourites in the Cloud 9 deck.  Card designs consist of hat attached to balloons in each shape. We went for the perfect set of colours - rose pink, light and heavy green and clear blue. Smashing and unique look. Never seen before. All of jokers are identical for the joy of performing as a magician.

Double Backer

Of course, we couldn't forget about double backer!

Gaff Card 

We'll always include a Gaff Card and this is one from our favourites.

Tuck Box 

I always loved an idea of showing the back design on the tuck box itself but we didn't want to just copy that style. We decided to show you a blue sky full of clouds what is a representation of our back design, but it's not exactly reveling the secret early on. 

On the inside flap you can find text which says ,,lighter than air" It is all about that. But... there is one more thing that you can find on that tuck box and we are not gonna make it easy for you to find out!  Get yourself a deck and be one of the people that know the secret.

Handling

The quality of the cards and stock which they are made of is crucial to the way they handle. Cloud 9 will be printed by the legendary United States Playing Card Company with precise specifications and the highest quality standards possible. Cards will be made on crushed Bee casino stock and will handle like a dream! Perfect for magicians, cardists and players. The huge advantage of the stock is that they last for a long time no matter how rough you are with them. 

*prototype


Cardistry

Our catching design is perfect for cardistry. Cuts never looked so clean before. Vibrant colours mixed with stock of the highest quality will catch spectators' attention while you perform and will definitely make your act mind-blowing. 

Find yourself ways to display them, can't wait!

*prototype


Magic

Perfect for magic: USPCC crushed Bee stock. DPS or classic pass never felt so good before. The back design makes your performance clean and easy to follow, and the white borders make extra cover for moves like the double lift. You'll make your appearance more interesting for the spectator. It's not a regular deck.  It gives energy to the moves! 

*prototype


Gaming

Our cards are for 'Muggles' too! Our cards will be perfect for any kind of game and will amaze your friends with the unique design.

T-shirt

As we are passionate about playing cards and everything including them. We decided to make our t-shirts on a thick, high quality cotton manufactured by Russell. Check out our design!

Of course we couldn't forgot about adding some extra secrets to it, so we came up with one of the best ways use your t-shirt in your show. Can you find a Reveal of the 9 of Diamonds somewhere on our t-shirt?
