UPDATES AT THE TOP, SCROLL DOWN FOR CAMPAIGN DETAILS

Unmarked purple deck is now unlocked at early bird prices!!

How to add purple decks to your order.

  •  1.Go to "Manage your pledge" button at the top of the page.  NOTE: If you haven't pledged yet, it will say "Back the project".
  •  2.Choose how many decks you want. Add the cost of those decks to your total pledge using the “ADD-ON PUPRLE DECK” chart provided below.
  •  3. Adjust shipping by REPLACING your original shipping fee with a NEW shipping fee using the table provided below.

Example 1: adding 3 purple decks to 3 deck tier with a poker chip add on

Original pledge with poker chip:

$60 (3 decks tier) + $12 (shipping to US) + $7 (poker chip)

So $60+$12+$7 = $79 CAD total pledge.

Original pledge  with poker chip + 3 purple decks add-on:

$53 (3 purple decks at early bird pricing – using chart) +$60 (original 3 decks tier) +$15 (shipping to US using chart for 6 decks) +$7 (poker chip)

So $53 + $60 + $15 + $7 = $135 CAD total pledge.

This person would adjust their pledge from $79 CAD to $135 CAD and receive a total of 6 decks and a poker chip.

If you would like me to do the math for you, contact me via Kickstarter, Instagarm @redfoxplayingcards or by e-mail: redfoxplayingcards.com

How to add additional add ons to your pledge:

  • 1. Go to "Manage your pledge" button at the top of the page.  NOTE: If you haven't pledged yet, it will say "Back the project".

More than just an ordinary deck of cards... ​Take a journey and see all that Red Fox has to offer!

​Red Fox Playing Cards are for everyone, including the card player, the cardist, the collector, and the magician.

THE CARD PLAYER – The fun, colourful design, combined with our own spin on the traditional card faces, will bring a new flair to all of your classic card games. Our stretch goal design is an unmarked deck for serious card games. 

THE CARDIST – Unique colours and rotationally symmetric backs for the perfect card fan. The hand-drawn artwork will create a rainbow of colour as you manipulate the cards. USPCC brand cards with a modern cut and air-cushion finish for beautiful fans, spreads, and the perfect faro shuffle.

THE COLLECTOR – Unique in design and full of hidden secrets. This is a design worth having more than one of on the shelf. So many details, secrets, and hidden "easter eggs!" Use 9 tuck boxes like a puzzle for a unique picture! 


THE MAGICIAN – The USPCC brand you are familiar with for all your sleight of hand. Includes a double back card, a duplicate card, and access to our free magic tricks website. This deck is also one of the first of its kind with its special marked backs. The marked deck that doesn’t “go to the movies” that will fool laymen and magicians alike. Marked backs that only you can see.

Virtually invisible markings to your spectators. 

Every deck of cards come with a pair of free red decoder glasses to help you learn the markings. Once you know where to look, the glasses are no longer needed

Learn the markings with the glasses, then do tricks without the glasses

Easy for you to find without the glasses when you know where to look. With about 10 min. of practice you will be an expert. No one will know but you! We have tested this and everyone so far cannot find the markings, even when told it's a marked deck - yet after shown with the red glasses, they can then read them effortlessly with the naked eye. 

DESIGN

Red Fox Playing Cards are hand-drawn with pencil crayons back and front, including every aspect of the tuck box. The colours were carefully chosen for their distraction as well as the ability to hide the many secrets that the deck holds. Playful and deceptive. Card faces were colour-matched for the theme, while staying close to the classic look of playing cards. We had some fun with the Jokers, Ace of Spades, and court cards! The tuck box continues with the theme by adding many features and hidden secrets,  as well as creating a unique 9-box picture never before done.

THE CARD FACES
              The coloured pencil pips tie this hand-drawn deck together, all while staying unique, as well as recognizable. 

THE COURT CARDS

The King and Queen of Hearts are look-a-likes of the creators of Red Fox Playing Cards. The Queen has done all of the artwork! The King of Clubs is a Chris Ramsay look-a-like. The Ace of Spades will say "RED FOX" when viewed through the red filter. The Queen of Spades is holding a reveal card - the Six of Diamonds. 

The Jokers hold some secrets of their own. The first is a "Hello" Joker. 

 Through the red decoder glasses, he peeks at the bird.

The second is the "Goodbye" Joker. 

He is winking when viewed through the red filter. Can you tell why he is named the "Goodbye" Joker and why he is winking at you? Maybe he just had his lunch!

FOX BOX

A never before done wrap-around design that allows you to take 9 tuck boxes, and, placing some right side up and some upside down, create one long unique picture. Notice that there is a running and sleeping fox on the bottom, as well as the top. 

RED FOX LOGO

Our logo is an ambigram logo, which is just a fancy word that means that it will look the same right side up and upside down, spelling out the words "Red Fox" both ways. 

QUALITY

Traditional sized poker deck of playing cards printed with none other than the United States Playing Card Company. These will be printed on the Bicycle standard stock with a modern cut for the best durability and a look and feel that everyone is accustomed to. USPCC brand cards offer the highest quality and are familiar to all. These cards are as good as they get!

This is for display purposes and makes a great conversation piece. Fulfilled and shipped by Stanley's Impossible Bottles.

 Stretch Goal #2 will be FREE stickers for ALL BACKERS! We are planning a 1.5" circle with the ambigram "Red Fox" logo, as well as an approximately 2"x3" sleeping red fox. They will be vinyl die cut stickers so they can go on almost everything! Stick them on your bumber, binder, locker, phone, laptop, computer tower, fridge, mirror, instrument case, suitcase, magic box, dresser, or any other flat surface you desire. 

​INSPIRATION

The idea of Red Fox Playing Cards was sparked more than 10 years ago. As an amateur magician, I learned different ways of marking my own cards and was originally piqued by the idea of selling my own marked deck that could only be seen through a red filter. I was frustrated with the results and had shelved and revisited the idea many times. What started out as writing lightly with green crayon on red cards, mixing green dyes, and combining ink jet printers with red back Bicycle cards, years later saw a major breakthrough.

One late night my wife and I were conversing and were reminded of a painted shirt my wife made years earlier for our son when she revealed to our parents that she was pregnant again. It reads “I’m going to be a big brother". We thought of combining that idea with the marked cards idea and we had a eureka moment! We stayed up quite late that night planning out the Red Fox Playing Cards.

We knew that the cards would have to have some red theme so the red filter would work, and that the markings would have to be sly – like a fox. Hence Red Fox. My wife started the sketches of our mascot and logo, and the direction of Red Fox Playing Cards was underway in January of 2019.

Hundreds of hours have been invested into the artwork and marketing of these cards and we are excited for everyone that is a part of our story to make this dream come true!

ABOUT THE CREATORS

Red Fox Playing Cards were designed and created by us, a husband and wife team. I, as an amateur magician, met my wife, the artist, in college in the year 2001, where we made great foosball partners. We married in 2006. 

Currently, Ricki has given up her full-time high school math and science teaching position to homeschool our two children. She enjoys art projects and has done all of the artwork for the Red Fox Playing Cards.

Kelly is a pilot for Morningstar Air Express flying FedEx planes in Canada. He is an amateur magician who enjoys performing tricks for friends, family, and strangers. ​

This project will be using Backerkit - a fulfillment software to make sure you get the products you pledged and the add-ons you want. A survey will show up allowing you to select the add-ons using the extra money you pledged, and also allow you to select additional decks and add-ons and pay for them through Backerkit. You can expect e-mails from them once the project is over! 

Risks and challenges

As this is our first Kickstarter project we realize there will be risks and challanges but we plan to mitigate them as much as possible.
MARKETING: For this we are partnering with some great people who are already well established on social media. There is no risk to the backers as it is an all or nothing campaign.
BUDGET: My wife as a high school math teacher and myself as a pilot, we have done the math down to the penny and are certain we can deliver our project once funded.
DELIVERY: We have the shipping supplies planned and ready to fulfill any number of orders in any and every quantity. I've gone as far as testing a deck of cards in our packaging by running it in the dryer for an hour to ensure when we ship, your cards will arrive in pristine condition.
QUALITY: We have chosen USPCC to print our cards and are confident in their printing ability.
TIMELINE: This is the biggest challenge for us, as this is our first campaign. To mitigate this challenge we have been in communication for some time already with USPCC and are hoping for a smooth flow. We are deep in conversation and have already submitted artwork so that we will be ready to print as soon as we have the funding. If there are any hiccups along the way rest assured that we will not sacrifice quality and we will keep you informed. Our goal is to try and over promise so as to deliver on-time or early.
