Ravn Playing Cards is a custom designed deck of poker size playing cards, designed by Stockholm17 for Caroline Ravn. We teamed up to deliver an elegant and classic looking deck of playing cards, with improved courts and standard pips. Perfect to perform magic tricks, cardistry, and of course to play at the green table.

The deck will be printed on Bicycle® paper stock by the United States Playing Card Company.

Project Creator Reliability Check: Caroline's campaign, production and fulfillment,  will be managed by herself and Requiem Team (a.k.a. Lorenzo Gaggiotti, or Stockholm17), who has already managed the following 4 successful Kickstarter campaigns:
Requiem / Heretic / No.17 / Le Chat Rouge .
If you have any doubt or question, do not hesitate to write an email :)

The look of the 12 court cards have been improved. The faces of the Jacks, Queens and Kings look better, and their hands have been redrawn as well.

This deck features 56 cards with crimson red back.

  • 52 cards +2 custom jokers 
  • gaff card "double queen"
  • gaff card "double backer"

Gaff Cards

The gaff cards are 2 extra cards that are included in the deck, which is made of 56 cards. The double queen and the double backer are great for magic tricks. Also the Joker with the hand has a reveal card drawn in it.

Here is the review on youtube, made by Scrambled Decks.

The plan is to have a tuck-box with embossing and "natural pearl" paper, which is slightly shimmering. Also this paper works very well with the embossing and it has a warm tone.

In the following pictures a homemade tuck-box mock-up with simulated embossing and paper.

The tuckbox will have no paper seal, it will be wrapped in cellophane.

Add-on  means that you can add one or more items on top of your pledge by doing simple math. Here the 3 add-ons

mini deck, brass coin, signed deck

Mini deck

Featuring a baby raven instead of the grown up one. It will appear on the Joker and the tuckbox. It´s half the size of a normal deck.

The pictures are photoshop rendering of how they should look. One side in 3D with 2 ravens (Hugin and Munin, Odin's raven in Norse Mythology). The circling swedish text means: "Hugin and Munin fly every day over the wide world". This text is taken from the Poetic Edda.

The other side is 2D, the dark areas are regressed metal.

It will be produced by Coinsforanything.com

Signed decks

with the signature of both of us, and a numbered custom seal. Please read the update #6 for more details.

Since we are based in Sweden, the campaign is in Swedish Crowns (Kr, SEK). The conversion rate to USD (Euro and British Pounds) is an average conversion rate. There are fluctuations all the time, about ±2%, but you can keep track of them here

Risks and challenges

The deck will be printed by USPCC (The United States Playing Card Co.) and shipped by Gamblers Warehouse (Texas).

The estimated delivery date is just that, an estimate. it depends on the factory and their workload. I will send the final files at the conclusion of the campaign, but I cannot speed up the production. There is a possibility of earlier delivery, but it all depends on how quickly USPCC completes the production, once I approve all the printing proofs.

Printing a deck of playing cards is a standard procedure, but errors may occur, you never know, the devil is in the details. This is my 5th Kickstarter project, even though I am managing Caroline's campaign.
We both will keep the eyes open and follow every single step of the project to make it real.

Be aware that the colors on the screen and on the displayed prototype will not perfectly match with the colors on printed paper. Graphics may improve or change slightly in the final printed version.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
