CircleCityCards.com will be live and taking orders in mid/late September.
Back to the drafting board with Revision 1 Playing cards. These cards were designed by a designer with a designer design in mind. White and light red graphics are laid on a blue graphing paper background making these cards look like a concept card design in process. These cards will be great for anyone who is in the engineering or architecture industry or anyone who enjoys these industries or just great looking cards. A fully custom deck of cards with custom ace of spades, face cards, jokers, tuck box and a beautiful back design. With decks starting at only $5 a deck these decks will be going fast.
I've been a graphic designer and CAD draftsman for the past 10 years and have always enjoyed a good game of cards. I came up with the idea for this deck of cards one evening while having a beer with some friends and haven't been able to forget about it. I learned about Kickstarter recently and decided to give it a whirl.
Why the money?
Unless I want to charge a couple 100 dollars a deck, and I really don't want to, I really need to get the quantities up in order to get a price break. I need $5,500 just to start the printing process with a minimum order. This price includes Having plates made, artwork fees, setup fees, proof charges and added color charges. I would really love to get these cards into the hands of everyone but the cost of printing is expensive and I won't be able to do that until I exceed my goal. I won't be making any money until after we get past the $5,500 mark. Once the goal is reached I will be making a little bit of money on the remaining decks, that's a good thing. I plan to turn around and reinvest the money directly back into the business that I am hoping be able to start. I've been doing design for someone else's dime for too long. I'm ready to do it on my own.
About the Rewards...
About the cards... Decks of cards start at $5.00 a deck and I have created many different options for different quantities. Though if you don't see the exact quantity of cards you want just pledge in multiples of $5.00.
About the Uncut Sheets... Uncut sheets will be a limited edition item. All Uncut sheets will be signed by the artist and individually numbered (you may opt out of this option if you so choose). The cost of an uncut sheet will be $40 so if you want to add any uncut sheets to an order than just add $40 to any order or select one of the rewards that includes an Uncut Sheet.
About the advert cards...I have included two options for the advertising cards. Every single deck of Revision 1 cards will include one (1) advertising card. On the front side of the card will be 1 ad spot each, on the back side of the ad card will be 3 ad spots each. (the advertiser for the 1 ad spot can decide whether they want front or back). This will be great exposure for your business or website and could be a great marketing tool to send to clients or give to employees. Not only that but your name will be in front of thousands of people that are going to want these decks! (We're going to keep it family friendly though. My mother will be the sole judge of this!)
USPCC and the Bicycle® Brand
These cards will be printed at the highest quality by one of the most respected playing card companies in the world. The Unites States Playing Card Company will print these cards Q1 on 325 embossed finish paper. I'm very happy to be able to print this decks at this exceptional quality and I know all of you will be too.
We met the goal of $10,000 so I will be including one gaff card with this deck and you get to decide what it will be. Please send in suggestions and I will be happy to take them into consideration.
We met our second goal of $22,000 so I will be including 2 gaff cards with every deck of Revision 1 playing cards. So here are some of the options:
