Hi! I'm Emmanuel, and I make paper-cut playing cards. My first 2 decks, Curator and Clipped Wings, were printed as actual decks by the US Playing Card Company. Together, we can turn my third deck, SAWDUST, into a real deck of cards.
SAWDUST shines the spotlight on the circus with 55 custom works of art. From onstage to backstage, the big show and the side show, the Sawdust deck brings the circus right to your hands.
The Sawdust deck will have a single print run. The guaranteed way to receive the deck is only through this campaign, so don't miss the big show!
The video above shows the entire deck. If you'd like to watch it on YouTube, click here.
The Sawdust deck will be printed by the USPCC with these features:
- 52 custom playing cards, 2 custom jokers, and 1 custom back design.
- Poker-size dimensions (2.5 x 3.5 inches).
- Bicycle Stock and Air-Cushion Magic Finish.
At the US Playing Card Company, all decks of cards are printed as uncut sheets before they are packaged. As an uncut sheet, the art of Sawdust is beautifully showcased, and it's sure to make an impression. Dimensions are 22 x 26.5 inches.
Example Only (not part of this campaign): Below are the uncut sheets of my previous decks. For availability of these decks, please see the FAQ at the bottom.
This hardcover collector's art book takes a closer look at the art of Sawdust. The book contains 32 pages and measures 11.25 x 8.75 inches. The books will be signed.
The art of Sawdust, Clipped Wings, and Curator are available as matte finish prints. Click here to see prints, their dimensions, and print codes. In the post-campaign survey, the codes will be used to indicate print selection. Prints will be signed.

Risks and challenges
Sawdust is my third deck and my second Kickstarter campaign. Delivering on time is of utmost importance to me. The holiday season will affect the USPCC's turnaround time, but the Sawdust artwork has long been complete. This campaign has also been streamlined in consideration of any end-of-year delays. As I've done with my first Kickstarter campaign, I will swiftly resolve any issues that arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
