Where the contributions go: 

Designing the cards, producing them in the best card company in the world (USPCC), manufacturing limited edition unique rewards, renting a warehouse (to ship your orders as fast as the speed of light!) and building a website, is a big investment. Making our vision come to life is more costly than we could ever imagine. Ritual can only see the daylight with your support. Your pledges will be invested in "kickstarting" our brand, and producing new and exclusive decks of cards. We want each and every one of you to become the DNA of our brand. 

We have a lot of exciting projects for the upcoming months and you can be a part of it. Pledge now and remember that only you can make it happen. 

Our commitment?  

When it comes to quality, we have a passion for perfection.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our project
