Hedron Design is a group of four friends who were brought together by their love for building products with great design. Hedron was founded on the principle that we should only create products we are passionate about, and therefore work our hardest to make sure those products are as amazing as they can be. We are a small company located in San Diego, California dedicated to designing and building the coolest products we can think of. 

Since many of us are gamers at heart, we decided to apply our skills to build something we knew we all wanted - a high quality, premium deck box for tabletop card games that can fit lots of cards and still turn heads with its incredible design. We think we succeeded, but we need your help to bring our first ever product into the hands of as many gamers as possible.

The DECA by Hedron Design

The DECA is one of the coolest deck boxes we have ever seen. Made from a sturdy hardwood base and a vibrant acrylic top, the DECA is made from the highest quality materials we could find.

Zebrawood & Fluorescent Orange

Being a design company, we engineered the DECA to be the coolest deck box on the table. With its diagonally opening top and tough yet beautiful leather strap, the DECA feels more like a piece of artwork than a card holder.

Do not be fooled however, because we designed the DECA to not only look stunning, but introduced a revolutionary new feature that has never been done before in a deck box: we allow you to use the DECA as a tray so that you can play your favorite card game right from the DECA itself!

DECA being used as a holder for playing cards, acrylic can also be used for space.

This is a huge advancement for us. It allows us to make larger stacks of cards that usually slide all over the table much more manageable. In games such as Magic: The Gathering, where Commander decks can reach as tall as 100 cards, the DECA really shows its stuff by keeping the decks from collapsing while looking gorgeous.

When it’s time to pack up, simply replace any remaining card on the table back into the DECA and close the lid! We believe we have created an elegant solution to hurriedly stuffing potentially expensive cards into a plastic container while rushing to the next match.

The Pledge Levels

When choosing the DECA combination that is right for you, the first step is to decide which wood you would like as the base. We know it’s a hard decision (we love all of them!) and we guarantee each wood is as beautiful as the next! After you have found a hardwood you like, you then find the pledge level that corresponds to that wood. We have grouped our hardwoods into three levels: Standard, Premium and Exotic. The Standard hardwoods are any wood at the $25 tier, the Premium hardwoods are any wood at the $30 tier and the Exotic hardwoods are any wood at the $35 tier. 

Once you have chosen your wood, you may pair it with any acrylic top we offer. Your choice of acrylic can be made when we send out a survey once the campaign is over. We are still working on adding more acrylics to the list, and may add even more in stretch goals.

Risks and challenges

- DECA is handcrafted, and the current error/defect rate is about 6%. We expect to lower that in the next few weeks to under 3%.

- We use high quality woods and acrylics and occasionally are faced with minor delays in shipping (usually no longer than a few extra days).

- Majority of our workflow has been thoroughly thought out and tested prior to coming on Kickstarter, so we are confident we will be able to deliver DECAs on time, if not sooner.
