Jetsetter Playing Cards: Premier Edition in Jetsetter Green
Classically inspired deck of playing cards for the aviation, travel, and playing card enthusiast. Printed by EPCC.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, April 25 2019 3:59 AM UTC +00:00.
❯❯ THE STORY
Since 2015, we have released five decks of playing cards with the Premier Edition series being the flagship deck for Jetsetter Playing Cards. Ever since the introduction of the Premier Edition series, Jetsetter Playing Cards has transitioned to become a notable luxury brand among the aviation and playing card communities. With the release of three different colorways since its introduction, the series has truly become the staple of the Jetsetter Playing Cards brand. You will find our playing cards ready for gameplay on numerous high profile private jets and in the agile hands of many respected card players, illusionists, magicians, and cardists.
As of today, we have produced over 12,000 decks of playing cards and shipped to over 35 countries around the globe. This would not have been possible without the support received on previous projects. We're ready to take it to a whole new altitude with our newest project...
Jetsetter Playing Cards was originally inspired by the roadside signs that guide travelers and plane spotters to their destination airports around the globe. Now, we want to revisit that original inspiration with the newest deck and introduce you to the Premier Edition deck in the Jetsetter Green colorway.
❯❯ THE DECK
Just like all the other standard Premier Edition decks in the fleet, the tuck box will have that vintage and classy feel with modern appeal you've come to know and love. It will be produced with exclusive synthetic stock providing durability beyond your standard tuck box that plagues your everyday deck - perfect for traveling. Once in your hand, you'll immediately notice a clear UV spot coating creatively applied as the pattern of airplanes found on the front of the tuck box. Additionally, all the spade logos on the tuck box will shine with silver foil.
The back design of the playing cards will showcase the Jetsetter Green colorway. We kept the same airplane pattern along with our Jetsetter Playing Cards logo on the back design in the traditional two-way casino-style to stay consistent with all the preceding Premier Edition decks.
The custom Ace of Spades will still prominently exhibit our logo but with Jetsetter Green colorway accents and a Jet Black spade logo in the center.
The deck will be printed with standard court cards that have been re-colored to match the overall theme and feel of the Premier Edition deck in the Jetsetter Green colorway. Spades and Clubs will showcase green, black, and silver court cards. Diamonds and Hearts will showcase a deeper casino red, black, and gold court cards.
The deck will include two untraditional, yet functional Jokers that resemble a pair of fictitious airline boarding passes for a round trip flight. Each of the Jokers will show variation between the two, making them ideal for gameplay. Hidden within one of the Jokers will be an Eight of Clubs reveal. Additionally, as an added bonus for the traveling magician, both Jokers will have a location dedicated for a written prediction or signature.
Lastly, the deck will be printed with the sought after Classic Finish, which provides a familiar and functional feel right out of the box.
❯❯ THE MANUFACTURER
The thin borders of the Premier Edition deck relies on precise registration with the printing and cutting. Due to that critical requirement and the need to be consistent across the Premier Edition series, the Expert Playing Card Company based in NYC will manage the production of the newest deck of Jetsetter Playing Cards. We will be manufacturing this deck within the same factory as all of our preceding decks.

The artwork, color selection, overall design, and/or materials are subject to change at any point for any reason for any of the offered rewards, including but not limited to the decks of playing cards and the additional rewards offered in collaboration with Slim Card | Gaffs & Magic and/or Jamie D. Grant.
Risks and challenges
If funded, this would be my fourth consecutively funded project on Kickstarter. With three projects already successfully fulfilled and logged, I have the experience to mitigate any potential risks. After a project funds, the two biggest challenges can be the production and/or the fulfillment of the rewards–both could potentially delay the expected delivery date of the rewards.
Production of the playing cards and tuck cases will be executed by the Expert Playing Card Company. I have produced four decks of playing cards with them and understand their overall process and estimated timeline. In addition, they have produced many of the most desired and leading-edge decks on the market.
Fulfillment of the playing cards will be further assessed at the completion of the funding timeframe of the project to determine the most efficient and backer-friendly process. However, all rewards are expected to be shipped directly from the United States.
Transparency is important to me. If any setbacks do arise anywhere in the process, I will proactively communicate them through updates via Kickstarter and aim to resolve those setbacks the best way possible. At times, I may use messages to communicate with backers one-on-one with specific updates related directly to their rewards. I do not foresee any significant setbacks during this project but know that they could happen. Sometimes uncontrollable factors do arise. If any setbacks do occur, I greatly appreciate your flexibility and support as I get them resolved.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
