|[ CORE PLAYING CARDS ]|
Obsession with Playing Cards + Doldrums of Summer + Itch to design = Kickstarter project! This is my first attempt at designing and producing a deck of playing cards. If this project gets successfully funded, they will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company and shipped to your door for you to enjoy.
****For international shipping information, please refer to the FAQ section at the bottom of the page.****
Inspired by the arc reactor from Iron Man and fused with some minimalist design preferences, the CORE deck is both elegant and functional as a deck for card games and a deck for tricks. Every card in this deck has been customized--new pips, new pip arrangements, new face cards, etc.
Redesigned in a new minimalist style. You saw them here first.
NEW PIP ARRANGEMENTS
I challenged myself to do something that nobody has ever done with the numbered cards. The result is a new and unique approach to arranging the pips while still maintaining its functional aesthetic during game play.
NEW FACE CARD DESIGNS
WHAT THE FUNDS ARE FOR
$15,000 is a lot of dough. The majority of this money will go towards getting these cards printed through the USPCC. This will be a limited edition deck with only 5000 of them to be printed. The next significant chunk of the money will be used for shipping and handling. Depending on how much is raised, I'll begin to look into other features available at the USPCC such as metallic ink, better tucks, etc.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE EXCESS
Any extra funding will allow me to design future decks and get them through the process a whole lot faster. I will also be able to potentially have better rewards in addition to uncut sheets.
THE ESTIMATED DELIVERY DATE
You're probably wondering why the estimated delivery date is posted so late at January 2013. As I've been observing other playing card projects here on Kickstarter, most of them have overshot their expected delivery date. The primary reasons for it have been either a delay from USPCC, a delay from the shipping company, or just being overwhelmed in shipping out every order. I have taken all that into account and hopefully the cards will arrive at your doorsteps sooner than that. Furthermore, I am just one man and I know my limits. What would the best case scenario be? It would probably be by the end of September 2012.
FINAL ARTWORK SUBJECT TO CHANGE
The final artwork of this deck may have some subtle changes after going through the USPCC prepress team.
