Who is TriKard Projects? TriKard is the same collaborative group that brought the award winning Aquila Playing Cards to Kickstarter just over a year ago as Kardify Projects. That collaboration between exceptionally talented Indonesian designer Ade Suryana of “The Three of Clubs” and the team from the on-line playing card resource site, Kardify.com, helmed by Ivan Choe and Anthony Ingrassia, struck a surprising balance with each bringing their own unique piece to the puzzle, but ultimately striving for the same goal, quality products that can be enjoyed by all Playing Card aficionados. TriKard Projects is our long term commitment to that vision.
Designed by Ade Suryana, Viridian playing cards feature a custom vintage design, reimagined courts, a beautifully crafted tuck case and a stamp bearing an intricate custom design. A deck that is as beautiful as it is functional, Viridian is the first in Trikard’s new line of Signature playing cards - versatile for magic, card flourishing or even just a game of poker.
A modern twist inspired by the classics.
Viridian combines distinctive design with the peerless quality of Legends Playing Card Co. The beautiful typography is based on vintage typeface and inspired from old Billheads and ephemera. The tuck is also elegantly adorned with beautiful organic patterns which is especially striking. Viridian will be meticulously printed on Classic Finish card stock by LPCC, well known for their innovation, attention to detail with exceptional durability, ultra-precise printing registration and the ‘glass like’ edges of their signature ‘Diamond Cut’ process.
Entirely new, yet immediately familiar.
From the moment you take the Viridian cards out, you will be comfortable using them. The deck looks amazingly fresh. But it’s visually reminiscent of what you’re used to seeing, and is designed around familiarity. The pips on Viridian have been given an update with timeless custom suits and a bigger font for the lettering and numbers.
Meticulously designed from the ground up by hand.
The court cards are stunning and each card has a different face and each with its own uniquely designed wardrobe which looks amazing with the theme color: green and deep red. This gives a good balance of having a beautiful design while keeping the integrity of a standard deck of playing cards.
Beautifully crafted. Sure to draw compliments every time the cards are cut.
Viridian features an intricate, mirror image floral design on the card backs inspired by traditional playing cards. The attention to detail and craftsmanship, makes this deck truly unique and one of a kind.
Inspired by vintage design and refined by modern aesthetics.
The Ace of Spades features a beautiful intricate design that is bold and stylish. The abstract floral pattern adds to the elegance and identity of Viridian.

Risks and challenges
This is our second playing card project and like all projects there are always risks in getting a product to market. The designs for both Viridian and Carmine have been completed and ready for production. The decks will be printed by LPCC on their classic finish stock.
Printing will begin within 35 days after the paper proofs are confirmed. The paper proofs can take anywhere from 3-8 week to get to us. We have been in constant contact with LPCC thoughout the planning phase and will continue to do so during the production phase.
Fulfilment can be one of the most challenging aspects of any project. To ensure the best experience for all our backers, we have decided to stick with Collectible Playing Cards (CPC)- the same company that successfully delivered Aquila Playing Cards all across the globe. As we have good relationship with CPC, we will oversee the fulfilment to ensure the process is smooth and efficient.
Delays may occur and in such case we will be updating everyone with regards to the delivery status. We have given ourselves a buffer and we are confident we can deliver Viridian to you in the time we’ve quoted.
As the project is quoted in AUD$ and payments are in USD$, there will be Foreign Exchange Risk due to volatility in the currency exchange rate. The exchange rate quoted by the bank: (AUD 1 = USD 0.72940).
*Please note that Viridian will be fulfilled out of the U.S.*
