About this project
My name is Randy Butterfield and I'm a Graphic Designer in Indianapolis, IN. I've been designing custom Playing Cards since early 2012, under the company name of Midnight Cards. My latest trio of Decks are full of grandeur and opulence - adorned by Copper, Blue, Silver, Black and even Gold HOLOGRAPHIC Foils! I'm proud to present the Grinders Decks.

LIMITED WHITE GOLD DECK:
The Grinders White Gold Deck is the rarest Deck I've EVER designed! Only 500 printed, and only 450 of them will be available (the remaining 50 will be for myself and for any lost or damaged Pledge Rewards). Print Specs for the LIMITED White Gold Deck include:
• Black Foil AND Gold HOLOGRAPHIC Foil
• Printed on a Premium White matte stock
• Individually Numbered and custom DIECUT Seal Sticker
• Seal Sticker printed on a Silver Holographic Foil material
• The Back Card will have a UV Spot varnish overlay
• Cards printed with Legends' excellent Classic Finish
• Only available within the Limited Pledge Tiers (NO ADD-ONS)
BLUE & COPPER DECKS:
The Grinders Copper and Blue Decks are intricate in detail, and elegant in execution. Quality Playing Cards perfect for gaming, collecting, cardistry and magic. The Perfect Poker Pair!! Print Specs for the Copper and Blue Decks include:
• Silver Foil AND Blue Foil (Blue Deck)
• Silver Foil AND Copper Foil (Copper Deck)
• Printed on a Premium Black matte stock• Cards printed with Legends' excellent Classic Finish• Beautiful custom 6-Pack Box for Copper Deck
All Decks AND the custom 6-Pack Box will be printed by Legends Playing Card Co. This will be my third personal design to be printed by Legends. They do an amazing job!! The Cards will utilize Legends' awesome Classic Finish, which is a softer and slicker paper. It's more comparable to a vintage Bicycle Deck.
BACK CARDS & JOKERS:
Below is an image showing (from Left to Right) the Red Joker (with Queen of Hearts reveal), and the Back Cards for the White Gold, Blue and Copper Decks.
CUSTOM 6-PACK BOX:
The matching 6-Pack Box for the Copper Deck is just as premium as the Decks. The custom 6-Pack Box is only available within specific Pledge Tiers and the Copper 6-Pack Add-On. It is NOT available by itself or as a separate Add-On without Decks. Print Specs for the custom 6-Pack Box include:
• Silver Foil AND Copper Foil
• Printed on a thick Premium Black matte stock
• Top Panel folds into a Display Header
• Custom DIECUT around the Grinders Logo
The Face Cards are designed for maximum playability. The Court Cards for the Grinders Decks derive from a more classical design than most modern Courts. I have elaborately decorated them with custom artwork - including intricate engraving designs, custom PIPS and handpainted outfit details.

2" GRINDERS DEALER COIN:
The Grinders Coin will be manufactured by Coins For Anything. The 2-Sided Coin will measure 2" in diameter, and will have an Antique Copper Finish.

Risks and challenges
FULFILLMENT - The Grinders campaign will be fulfilled from Texas, by Gamblers Warehouse. They do an excellent job, and have worked with many Kickstarter Playing Card projects.
IS THE COPPER DECK ALSO LIMITED? - Of course! I have never reprinted any of my personal Decks, and never will. I will only print the quantity of Blue Decks, Copper Decks and 6-Pack Boxes needed for Pledge Rewards and off-Kickstarter orders, plus a few hundred extras for a future Midnight Cards online storefront. The print run for the Copper and Blue Decks will probably be either 1,000 or 2,000 each.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
