About

 My name is Jarek 1:20, I'm a professional wrestler from Michigan and an online video content creator––I'm known for magic. I created the YouTube channel Disturb Reality, the free source to visually learn powerful magic integrated with social dynamics. 

This is a premium playing deck of cards I designed in Adobe After Effects and finalized in Adobe Illustrator. I wanted to have a true artist design the first Disturb Reality branded deck of cards; but after feeling inspired one night––I did a lot of research and worked for 3 days on unfamiliar software to correctly and accurately design a deck of cards that fits the theme of Disturb Reality, theme's from my life, and caters to everyone.

This March will mark the 6-year anniversary for the channel and wanted to do something special––something my audience has been inquiring and hoping for, for the last few years now: A Disturb Reality deck of cards. I wanted to create a deck that appealed to magicians, cardistry artists, poker players, card collectors, and the general public––nothing too simplistic, nothing overly artistic and convoluted.

WITH YOUR HELP––we can produce 5,000 of the Black and Yellow edition of the CXX decks. Requiring $20,000, I’ve included an additional $4,000 to cover the costs of miscellaneous things that will come up (i.e. Kickstarter’s percentage, Amazon’s percentage, a third party company shipping out the decks, etc.) If the cards get an overwhelming amount of backers, more than 5,000 decks will be printed––any extra stock I have, I will sell personally, or make people earn ‘em in future contests.

The CXX Deck
The CXX Deck

Every deck will come printed on classic Bicycle stock with performance air-cushion finish. You may notice that this deck is heavy CM Punk inspired––that was intentional. I hope you pick up the little nuances of the design that have deeper meaning than just ‘strategic placing.'

Every card features Disturb Reality themed custom suit designs, black clubs and spades, and bronze yellow hearts and diamonds.

EDIT: Here are the new updated hearts––due to the previous hearts being confused for spades.

The Ace's feature Disturb Reality themed custom suit designs, including the Disturb Reality logo on the Ace of Hearts.

The Court Cards's are borderless with hand drawn faces by Joe Nash, every face card is modeled after influential people in Jarek's life. Featuring three several colors (black, yellow, dark grey, deep red, and bronze), these detailed cards will be fun for you to discover and figure out the symbolism behind each court card.

The Jokers feature the Skull and Crown, with CXX used as the pips. A double-backed card is included for magicians –– here’s a video I made of four effects you can do using a double backer. This deck also includes a duplicate Jack of Spades, ideal for various effects for magicians. There is no seal, so you won’t have to worry about the opening of your box getting sticky with glue residue––instead you can see the Disturb Reality logo peaking through.

The Box lets you know this is indeed, a Disturb Reality deck of cards. When coming up and conceptualizing creative concepts (nice alliteration, HUH!?), I didn’t want the deck itself to SCREAM Disturb Reality. I didn’t want to call the deck Rise Above, Disturb Reality, Aspire to Inspire, or the other cliched quotes from the channel. The cards are stand alone, but in creating the box design I decided to add those known phrases to the box. Letting the hardcore fans know: This is that Disturb Reality deck of cards I’ve been wanting––but the laymen seeing just a dope deck of playing cards.

EASTER EGGS: There are several secret Easter Eggs hidden within the cards AND the box. These will remain top secret until you discover them for yourself once they arrive in your mailbox.

In addition to the CXX cards, we also have shirts, bricks, uncut sheets, digital posters, skull caps, wristbands, Disturb Reality black card clips, and the perfectly crafted “Anything is Possible” bottle. EVERY BACKER OVER $10 INCLUDES A DIGITAL WALLPAPER FOR YOUR COMPUTER AND DIGITAL POSTER.

Shipping Prices

Do you live in the United States? The shipping/handling prices are included in the prices of the rewards and perks, that is your flat fee for everything, buddy.

Shipping, packaging, handling, postage with any package anywhere in the world nowadays is expensive. I BLAME GLOBAL WARMING!

Kickstarter works like this: if you pledge to get this project funded and we don't reach $24,000 goal within 30 days –– you'll get your money back.

International Shipping

Truth be told, I modeled this entire Kickstarter layout to other playing card creators and emulated what successful projects have done in the past, as well as my personal experience with shipping cards/shirts overseas. This Kickstarter has been heavily emulated off of Lee McKenzie's projects. Doing my research I tried to model my international shipping close to what these successful, talented, and respected card artists have done. International shipping prices in the US have really skyrocketed in the last year and a half––but the juice is worth the squeeze.

If you like the deck or have ever been a fan of Disturb Reality, TELL EVERYONE YOU'VE EVER MET IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE! ;D

80% of all sales come from word of mouth. The more this project gets shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, etc., the faster this project will get backed, and we can successfully go from having our goal reached––to trying to reach our stretch goals.

Use the sharing tool at the top of the page or simply copy, paste, and share this link with your friends, family, peers, and the world.

Just like every dollar helps, every share helps significantly. Thank you <3

Risks and challenges

This is my first ever Kickstarter project––also my first ever deck of cards I've designed and had produced (with your love and help, of course). I may be biting off a little more than I can chew and could very well get overwhelmed with the amount of work that's going to come after these 30 days are over.

I'm looking to have a third party company distribute the CXX cards once the project is over, while I take care of the shirts and additional perks that come with the respective backings. Shipping is going to take a bit of time with a minimum of 5,000 decks being shipped across the world.

The USPCC has certainly been busy with new projects from a wide variety of creators, the printing timeline may get backed up. If the project does get delayed for printing reasons, it certainly won’t be delayed unacceptably long.

I've always been an advocate for finishing something you start––I have a good track record for making and fulfilling ambitious goals. So if you back this project, I guarantee you will get what you backed. Good things come to those who wait.
