This edition will be printed with The United States Playing Card Company. The faces will be USPC standard, but will have pixilated Queens faces, custom Jokers, and two custom ad cards. 

LIMITED Nothing is Impossible bottles ($95 tier)

Like our first edition, these cards will be traditionally cut and made of crushed stock to the thinnest caliber range for the smoothest handling for magicians and cardists alike. The deck will also have an air-cushioned finish.

The pattern on the card back is the logo of our partnership with Hope For Justice, a non-profit that is dedicated to ending human trafficking. The custom Joker also features a dove. Dove releases have been around for thousands of years and many different cultures see a dove release as symbol of peace, love, innocence and freedom.

We brought back the same designer from the first edition deck, Aaron Dickey. We went back and forth on every little detail, and wanted the best possible product to put into this world. The tuck box is matte black with a dark red foil. Nothing is printed on the box, just the foil. The front has the unlocked lock and the back has the Hope For Justice dove logo. Whenever Hope For Justice saves someone out of human trafficking, they put an unlocked lock on their wall. 

For every life saved, HFJ puts an unlocked lock on their wall.

We originally wanted to find 4 women in trafficking and put their faces on the Queens. But, lives would have been in danger as traffickers are continually looking for those who have escaped their grip. To honor the women who have been, and still are, exploited, we have pixilated the Queens faces.

Below are the two ad cards. One is a double back. The other is designed to help spot the signs of human trafficking so that more lives can be saved.

STRETCH GOAL ($8,500)

Once we meet our Kickstarter goal of $8,500 we will put this seal on every tuckbox.

The experience of cutting open handcuffs (seal) to access the playing cards is a beautiful reminder of the impact we are making to fight human trafficking. 


ADD-ON'S

The Story:

From the first edition, our story hasn't changed. It's the same. We are the change we want to see.

After Kickstarter, ALL PROCEEDS from this deck will go to Hope For Justice.  

Change lives. End Slavery. 


Zak Mirzadeh


ATTENTION: 100% of Kickstarter campaign funds will go to produce as many MIRZ decks as possible. AFTER KICKSTARTER, 100% of proceeds will go to fight human trafficking. With your pledge, this project will go all across the globe and create awareness for this issue.

Risks and challenges

This second edition deck has already been approved by United States Play Card Co. The biggest risk we face is not raising enough funds to put this into the world. With your help, we can make this happen. The more money we raise, the higher quantity of decks we can purchase at a lower cost.

Once Kickstarter is over, we will begin production, and the second edition deck should be at your door right before Christmas. The timing is perfect as January is human trafficking awareness month, and you will make a difference.
