Vända Playing Cards presents a new custom-designed deck called 'Polaris'

Polaris is a celestial-themed deck with modern woodcut-style illustrations and wooden accessories. Now available in Lunar, Solar, and Eclipse Editions, this 4-color deck is perfect for poker, bridge, or any other standard card games and the borderless back design looks amazing when fanned.

The limited edition Eclipse Edition deck will be printed with 5 metallic ink colors on the fronts, backs, and tuckbox, and each box will be hand-numbered. These unique collector's items will be available only through this Kickstarter project and we will only print as many as are ordered before the project ends. Eclipse Edition uncut sheets will be signed and numbered.

You can add as many decks as you'd like for $7 each (Lunar & Solar) or $10 each (Eclipse). International pricing: $8 each (Lunar/Solar), $11 each (Eclipse). You'll be able to specify the amounts of each color in the backer survey at the end of the project.

The decks will by printed by the United States Playing Card Company on Bicycle stock with Magic finish.

Scroll down to view all the Polaris accessories, including:

poker chips, t-shirts, wooden cards, uncut sheets, Porper clips, posters, wooden coasters, and wooden boxes.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The US Playing Card Company is the producer of the highest quality playing cards in the world - they have proven an ability to deliver excellent products with excellent consistency.

Since this is our second custom playing card deck project that will be printed by the USPC, we are now familiar with their entire process from start to finish and will be able to work more efficiently to minimize the required timeline to produce the final decks of cards.

The other accessories will be produced by several different vendors so there's always a risk with trusting another business to produce your product, in terms of quality, time frame, and reliability. We have discussed our expectations thoroughly with each of the vendors involved and acquired samples to ensure the final products will meet our quality expectations.

We plan to keep all backers completely informed with regular updates as to the status of the project throughout the fulfillment process.
