About

Super Suits: Playing Cards

$7,114

269

This deck is a critique on the familiarity of certain symbols within our culture, & what happens when symbols converge. Undefined Knowledge, Inc. does not own the rights to any symbols or logos that our designs are a critique of, and the intent of this deck is strictly artistic expression.

 "A minimalist design -- with a subtle nod toward [super]heroic iconography..."

It was never our intent to create superhero court cards where a certain hero is the King, his girlfriend is the Queen, and his sidekick is the Jack. This wasn't about making a "literal" superhero deck, but rather a design experiment on what happens when certain symbols, like card suits, converge with equally iconic images.

The manufacturer we use lists the material as 310gsm French casino quality card stock with black core (linen finish). This is the same card production specs we have used on our previous successfully-funded projects.

Let's just call this our homage to that infamous "Death of... " story arc back in the Nineties. We are only printing 250 of these Limited Edition Black Decks, which includes alternative card backs, tuck box and an alternative Heart Suit design.

Hearts in the Black Deck will be Black and Red instead of Red and Gold, and the Heart Court Cards will be Black and Red instead of Red, Gold and Blue (see above). All other Card Fronts will remain the same.

One "Black Heart" Commemorative Button Pin will be given to each Backer that pledges for one of the Limited Edition Black Decks. It will match the buttons included in the Pin Set we will give away if we meet the first Stretch Goal (see below)!

Stickers

Backers of the Sticker Reward tier will get ONE sheet of pull-and-peel stickers with their deck. There are 8 stickers on a sheet, and these stickers are of a very high, water-resistant quality.

Dynomighty Wallet

Dynomighty began 10 years ago in NYC, (they're now in Brooklyn, just like us!) and have since become one of the fastest growing companies in the US three years in a row. The reason for their continued success lies in the open, collaborative environment they foster. "We crave ideas & innovation, and the best way to harvest those ideas is by sharing and listening to those around us." Dynomighty products are sold in over 60 countries worldwide, and we are happy for the opportunity to take our designs for this Kickstarter Campaign and offer an amazing Dynomighty Wallet as one of our rewards!

Exterior Design
Exterior Design

The Mighty Wallet was designed by Terrence Kelleman in 2005, and has spawned an entire new genre of wallet made with DuPont™ Tyvek® fabric around the world. The Mighty Wallet was the first ever wallet made with DuPont™ Tyvek®, folded entirely out of a single sheet it even improves upon a standard leather wallet with its stitchless design. 

Whether you've backed one of our previous three projects, or this is the first you've heard of us, we just just want to say thank you in advance. Designing and making these cards, and getting to know the playing card and kickstarter communities has been an amazing experience for us.

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

After being successfully funded on our last three projects, we are excited to present this unique deck of playing cards. The feedback on our previous projects has been tremendous and we hope you enjoy this deck just as much as it's predecessors. One thing we have been deeply proud of, has been our ability to ship our decks all over the world, usually within a month of the end of our campaigns. People have been pleasantly surprised with the turnaround time on our projects, and we are dedicated to maintain our reputation.
