The Anubis and Osiris Playing cards is an original set of American playing cards designed by Steve Minty. These decks are inspired by the luxurious reverence of Egyptian Gods and Kings of the past. Elements from classical Egyptian era and the Egyptian Revival are incorporated into this deck along with modern design make these decks truly special.
I have always been drawn to the luxury of Egyptian design and I knew vaguely of how people used to incorporate its elements into modern day life outside of Egypt but I could only guess on why it went away. Upon further research, I learned that it went away during the major war and I felt that it was time to start bringing it back. The highly ornamental and luxurious elements are a perfect fit for our current sensibilities.
There are two available design options for the engraved cards: The Anubis or The Osiris design. Each are regulation poker card sized (2.5"x3.5") but will be hefty at 3.5mm thickness. Only a limited amount will be made so it will be the perfect addition to the collection! Please note that this card is Gold Antique Finish and not real gold.
Add an engraved card to any reward for only $30 or $50 for both! You will be able to specify your selection after the campaign ends.

Risks and challenges
This campaign will be my third after the highly successful Muertos and Olympia Campaigns. Although there were some technical difficulties with the one of the printers and other issues, I've taken what I've learned from that experience and will apply a more efficient and effective process to allow for another successful campaign. As always, I have done a lot of research and followed up on a lot of companies to ensure that this project goes as smoothly as possible.
There may be the risks of the unforeseen but I have prepared myself enough with knowledge and research to minimize it if necessary. I listed the delivery date conservatively in order to not rush the production of the product. As a designer and consumer, I know that it is necessary to have a high-end product and I am committed to delivering the best product possible.
