About

Welcome to The Entertainer Playing Cards

Hi! My name is Elijah McBee and and thank you for checking out my Kickstarter campaign! These are my cards! I am a magician, cardist, and card enthusiast from The Magic Castle living in the Coachella Valley in Southern California and this is my first Kickstarter campaign! For the past 8 months I've been working on these cards with the help of my family and some friends and they are finally ready to show to the world! The cards feature a ton of customization that I hope you guys really enjoy!

-The cards-

The cards will be printed by the USPCC (confirmed) on the famous Aristocrat stock and finish. The absolute best of the best for cardistry, magic, and card playing (hint, you get perfect faro shuffles every. single. time). The backs of the cards feature a red gradient back with a thin white line on the inside of the gradient. The super thin borders compliment this deck in ways that can only be explained as perfect!

The backs feature The Entertainer emblem on both sides of the deck mirroring each other!

The emblem features a combination of The Entertainer initials (T and E) wrapped inside two leaf branches. A crown sits on top of the logo to give it a nice feeling of royalty and class.

The faces are classic faces with a restyling and coloring to match the feeling of the deck. They feature a rich red with hints of light blue, gold, and dark black to really make it come to life and match the royalty that goes with this deck.

The Ace of Spades has a large spade in the center of the card, filled with the red gradient design from the back of the deck and the emblem from the front of the tuck, with a thin black stroke encompassing the spade. The Entertainer word logo is displayed beneath it with The BackRoom Playing Card Co. in gold underneath that.

The jokers are in mid-production and will be finished soon by my good friend and cutting-edge artist Naomi Lehr! Check out her photography at http://naomilehr.wix.com/valkyriephotography! She does professional photoshoots, family portraits and more! The jokers will display a ragtime piano player at work on a white card with two J's up at the corners. The reason for the 4 hands is because if you listen to rag-time piano it literally sounds like they have multiple hands! Here is the first sketch of this wonderful joker-

The deck has a beautiful ad card that elegantly signifies where we are and what deck you're playing with!

The tuck also includes a secret message on the lip of the tuck for you to decode and figure out at home! The back of the tuck displays the back of the cards and on the bottom of the tuck is our Brpcc logo with our distribution location and the name of the deck!

Thank you!

Thank you again for checking out my Kickstarter! I have put a lot of work into this deck and Kickstarter. For the past 8 months this deck has been my 24/7 job and I've loved every bit of it and I'm so excited to share it with you! So please go back this project! I want everybody to experience this amazing deck for themselves. I want to see people post their pictures of their new deck! I want people to see this deck the way I do, and I know that if this succeeds, we can go far. Together. Who knows what the future may hold...

~Elijah.

Risks and challenges

As it seems with these things, it's possible that the Uspcc could have some delays or setbacks with the shipping/printing process, hopefully not, but if it's excessive, we will definitely make it up to you! As soon as we get the shipment of our cards, we are going to get straight to work packaging and shipping them to you! We are going to make frequent updates about the shipment both from Uspcc to us, and from us to you. So check back on our Facebook, Twitter, and here on the Kickstarter for updates on your cards!
