About

Jetsetter Playing Cards. Printed by Legends Playing Card Co.

$7,861

Jetsetter Playing Cards were originally inspired by the roadside signs that guide travelers and plane spotters to their destination airports. With that same inspiration in mind, this deck has been refined to also embrace the true elegance of air travel and jet-setting. The classic design will be essential for any aviation, travel, or playing card enthusiast. Due to a unique cutting process, these playing cards will provide a phenomenal experience with their magnificent handling which is highly desired among card players, cardists, and magicians. Furthermore, the luxurious and durable tuck case will be admired by those who love aviation and traveling.
 

This deck of playing cards will be printed by Lawrence Sullivan and the Legends Playing Card Company. They are able to achieve a level of quality that other playing card manufacturers cannot. LPCC produces the highest class of playing cards due to their innovation and attention to detail with exceptional durability, ultra-precise printing registration, and the ‘glass like’ edges of their signature ‘Diamond Cut’ process.

After much collaboration between Lawrence and myself, we were able to develop an improved and luxurious version of the Jetsetter Playing Cards. To learn more about LPCC's commitment to playing cards and their quality, click here.
 

The tuck case has become even more simple and elegant with a special transparent high gloss technique applied to the front of the tuck case on the airplane icon providing the look and feel of an actual body of an airplane. This is something you need to feel and see to believe.

The back design will exhibit a remarkably thin border, showcasing the ultra-precise printing registration and cutting process that LPCC is capable of. Additionally, the design will display the favored traditional diagonal pattern of airplane icons giving the deck a classy and casino-inspired look.

The deck will be printed with LPCC standard court cards that have been re-colored to match the overall theme and feel of the Jetsetter Playing Cards. Spades and Clubs will be green, black, and yellow. Diamonds and Hearts will be a deeper red, black, and yellow.

How can we make this deck even better? The project needs to reach a certain level of funding for specific features to be added to the deck. Please reference the stretch goal chart shown below:
 

As the project reaches each of the goals established above, that specific feature will be added to the deck during production... making the deck that much better and unique!
 

LIMITED • Custom Skateboard Deck Wall Display. Handmade by Adam Kirby, each design will be unique and arrive ready to hang on the wall. This is an extraordinary way to display the Jetsetter Playing Cards and a great addition for any collector. Only five (5) of these will be available and they will be individually numbered. Due to their very limited availability, they will NOT be accessible as an add-on reward.

Note: Image above is only a representation of what the skateboard deck wall display looks like with white Artisan Playing Cards, not the Jetsetter Playing Cards.

Custom "Anything Is Possible" Bottle. A brand new fully-sealed deck of Jetsetter Playing Cards will be trapped inside an unaltered milk bottle. The deck of playing cards will have gone through the hole at the top of the milk bottle without the bottle being altered in any way. In addition, the playing cards will still be sealed within the cellophane. Handmade in Canada by Jamie D. Grant. This reward will be an amazing conversation starter and will continue to inspire you everyday. To learn more about the "Anything Is Possible" bottle, click here. This reward may be pledged for or added as an additional item; please reference the Add-On Guide further below.

Note: When adding a reward to your pledge, be sure to reference the United States cost or the International cost based on where your rewards will be shipped. The additional shipping is included in the add-on amount shown within the guide above.
 

Product fulfillment is very time consuming and can be extremely expensive due to handling costs and it's variable nature with shipping costs. To be sure that backers receive their rewards in the most efficient and cost-friendly way possible, I have decided to have Legends Playing Card Company carry out the fulfillment of the playing cards. The additional rewards will be shipped by the creator or myself. I will not be profiting off the shipping costs.

Note: There may be additional custom fees or taxes for international backers when your package arrives, in which I am not responsible for or have any control over.

Risks and challenges

Once the project is funded, the two biggest challenges can be the production and fulfillment of the rewards - both could potentially delay the delivery to backers.

Production of the playing cards and tuck cases will be done by the Legends Playing Card Company. They are certainly setting the standard in playing card production.

Fulfillment can be one of the most challenging aspects of any project. To ensure the best experience for all the backers, I have decided to have LPCC accomplish the fulfillment so backers can receive their rewards efficiently. This will allow the entire process to transition effortlessly from production to delivery and cut down on the delivery time.

If any setbacks do arise anywhere in the process, I will communicate those issues through updates via Kickstarter.
