About

Hi guys! 

With this project, we will publish a new series of decks called Crown Jewels. Crown Jewels is our fifth project, and we hope that, with your support, it will be as successful as our previous projects!

This time around, however, we wanted to give you all something more than just cards.

With this exciting new project, we hope to join the cardistry community by providing three unique but complementary decks: two for regular game play and one for the magical art of cardistry. Best your friends in games of chance, or wow them with a flourish of palm and card! The third deck will be available free as a gift to every supporter after the project reaches a goal of £ 21k.

So... what awaits you with Crown Jewels? And what's the inspiration behind the name?

With this series, we draw from the rich variety of colors you'd find in precious and semi-precious stones making up royal jewels - and the mythologies that surround them. We want your deck to feel like treasure. We want them to feel magical.

The first and second decks from the Crown Jewels series will be dedicated to the amazing stone Sapphire.

Legends say that, in times immemorial, the gods ruled the world in this time of power and freedom, they dwelt in their heavenly palaces over Mount Kailas and ruled the people below. But the people dreamed of visiting the abode of the gods, even for just a moment, and longed to see the legendary place where there was no death or illness. One of the peasants prayed to the supreme divinity to witness the world of the gods and be convinced of the existence of immortality. The gods, of course, couldn't allow a human into their abode. But taking pity on the peasant, one of the gods took the cup of immortality and sprinkled it around the world. Falling, the spray turned into gorgeous blue stones - sapphires - and most of the drops, as legend has it, fell on Sri Lanka.

The first decks of the Crown Jewels series will be great; we’re sure of it. The color of Sapphire royal blue prevails in the decks and the boxes are finessed with blue foil overflows.

What's more, the cards are designed with all new faces. Yes, you heard right: new card faces

In our deck you'll see a twist on the classic images of Kings, Queens and Jacks, with the decks representing the opposition of the Kings of East and West - bringing the battles of ancient kings to your gaming table!

                                                    Classic - The Aces

                                                    Classic - The Kings

                                                    Classic - The Queens

                                                      Classic - The Jacks

A unique gift deck for fans of card tricks, magicians and collectors will be available free as a gift to every supporter after the project reaches £21,000.


Friends, thanks to your support, we have passed the £10k mark. The main stretch goal remains halfway. And in order to make this way a little more fun, we, as promised, present another surprise. When the project reaches £15k. We will give everyone - you have heard that right - the Original Multifunctional Headwear in style BUFF with images of cards of the deck and the name of the series. Our Multifunctional Headwear will protect you from the sun, wind and road dust and remind you of the time when we reached our goals on the project  😊

Have a good day! 

For tips on how to use Multifunctional Headwear, please click on the link to the original BUFF video.

Traditionally, all backers receive a unique postage stamp 

The book "Unknown Playing Cards History" is a free gift for backers who supported the project at the level of two decks or above. 

This time, backers who have purchased premium packaging or rewards over £30 get the dealer coin with artificial sapphire as a gift. If you want to additionally receive this item, please add + £ 11 per coin and send us a message indicating the desired number of coins. 

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

This is our fourth project at Kickstarter and we have a solid idea of how everything works. We are confident that this Kickstarter campaign will be an even smoother process than our last projects.
We have a wide experience in manufacturing and shipping and if everything goes smoothly, all backers should receive the decks and add-ons on time. However, unforeseen situations can always occur, so we have to take into account the risks in manufacturing and transportation.
We took into account all the feedback of the backers from previous projects, fine-tuned the schedule and printing process, and worked hard on the logistics.
We ensure that all backers will get their rewards.

Manufacturing:
Printing decks of playing cards is a standard procedure, but there are always risks. Please note that all of the above files are 3D renderers and the final colors can only be changed for the better. We also want to note that the transport packaging (box and cellophane in which the decks come) are not part of the decks design but are used as a protection against moisture and damage, they must be removed the factory cellophane upon receipt.

Shipping:
It is crucial that you enter your address correctly in the survey after the project has ended. We do everything to send packs to supporters on time, but some decks can have an unexpectedly long delivery status and / or customs processing. We need to ask for your understanding, that it can (in rare cases) take more time, from the time of dispatch, to the actual delivery to the recipient. We can not be responsible for the work of local postal services. Thank you.
