About

To stay up-to-date as we relaunch this project, stay connect via...our Website, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

We have been listening to many suggestions about the design of the deck and have decided to make a few changes to the initial design. These minor edits and additional options make this project stronger and we appreciate all the feedback that led to these changes! The design changes and additional options are as follows:

Indices - The indices will be moved higher and closer to the edge of the cards as shown in the above image. This is really the only major change to the look/design of the cards at the moment, but it was a good point that a respected individual pointed out, and hopefully this gives the cards better functionality during gameplay.

Printing - Under "The Cards" section on the Project page we explained that we will be printing this deck with MPC, unless we hit our Stretch Goals, in which there are several scenarios that will allow us to print the Chromatic Deck (Stretch Goal #1) or both the Chromatic and Gray Decks (Stretch Goal #2) with EPCC. Our main funding goal of $6,500 will allow us to print the Chromatic, Gray and Mini Decks with MPC. Only the Stretch Goals will allows us to use EPCC. We apologize for any confusion. 

Additional Commemorative Card + Free Autographing

Front of Commemorative Cards
Front of Commemorative Cards

The quantity of each deck will depend on the printer, and the overall amount of funding we raise. We have decided to include a Commemorative Card with each deck that designates on the front of the card the amount of decks printed in this initial print run. As it stands now, if this deck is funded, we will probably only be printing 250 of each deck. Also, if you would like your deck autographed, we are offering this as a free Add-on. You will have the option to decide if you want your deck(s) autographed after the project has ended, when we send the Backer Survey. The decks will be signed on the inner top tuck flap, and please note that we will have to open your deck in order to autograph it. The cards, however will remain in cellowrap, inside the opened tuck. 

We will be producing TWO versions of this deck, the first we have dubbed the Chromatic Deck. This main deck will be available in standard poker size and also available as a Mini-Deck. The second version of this deck is the Gray Deck which will only be available as a standard poker size deck.

Both poker size Chromatic and Gray Decks will be 63mm x 88mm, 2.5" x 3.5" The dimensions for the Chromatic Mini Deck are 44.45mm x 63.5mm, 1.75" x 2.5". All three will come in custom tuck boxes as pictured above and as illustrated in "The Box" section below.

Each deck will consist of 54 cards, four suits (2 -10), aces, standard court cards and two jokers. It is our desire to have these decks printed using EPCC's Master Finish and Tucks on premium stock. However, after much deliberation, this higher production option will only be available if certain stretch goals are met. If we don't meet these stretch goal, these decks will be printed with MPC, using 310sgm Linen quality card stock, which is what we have used on each of our previous projects. Please see the Stretch Goal section below for more info.

It is our hope and intention to print these decks with the Expert Playing Card Company (EPCC), however the production costs and minimum order requirements can limit production options. Rather than setting an incredibly high funding goal and crossing our fingers, we have always been interested in production options that increase the percentage of successful funding. If the demand is high enough to reach these Stretch Goals, then 1000+ minimum order with EPCC will be a non-issue. We've never had a project reach the level of demand that would allows us to print with a company like EPCC. 

We still want to be able to print this deck even if we don't hit a high enough goal to print using EPCC. The only way to do that is to print with MPC and offer a lower main goal ($6,500). This lower goal, if met, will at least allow the Decks to be created. The higher stretch goals, if met, would allow us to print with EPCC. With EPCC, the turnaround time for production is much longer, but the quality of the cards will be higher. 

Funding Goal: $6,500 - All Decks (Chromatic, Gray and Mini) will be printed using MPC, 310sgm Linen quality card stock, which is what we have used on each of our previous projects.

Stretch Goal #1: $12,500 - Chromatic Deck will be printed using EPCC's Master Finish and Tucks on premium stock. At this stretch goal the Gray Deck will still be printed using MPC, 310sgm Linen quality, which we have used on each of our previous projects. Mini-Decks will also be printed using MPC.

Stretch Goal #2: $18,500 - Both Chromatic and Gray Decks will printed using EPCC's Master Finish and Tucks on premium stock. Mini-Decks will still be printed using MPC.

Hey! Are you a designer?!? Do you want to design a custom deck of playing cards inspired by the city you live in??? Great! We are looking to collaborate with other designers from around the world to produce future decks in our Urban Design Series. 

One of the coolest features of Kickstarter is the environment of togetherness that is created during the course of a project. This environment is helpful as a creator, because it gives you the ability to listen to your backers and take your project to a much higher level. 

We are hoping to initiate a project that can continue to grow even after this project ends. To achieve this, we are hoping to connect with other Designers interested in creating a uniquely designed deck of playing cards based on the city in which they reside.

January 2015 seemed like the perfect time to launch this Urban Design Series with our own NYC deck and we would love to follow up this deck with a custom deck based on the architecture of another amazing city. If you are interested please message us directly through kickstarter and we will send you further details on how to collaborate with us on the next Urban Design Deck!

Not a designer, but still have a burning passion to see your city turned into a deck of playing cards? If so, please message us. We would be more than happy to discuss design and/or production with you as well.

Risks and challenges

After being successfully funded on our last four projects, we are excited to present this unique deck of playing cards.

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.

One new challenge for us on this project is that we will be using a different printer if the stretch goals for this project are reached. This new company will allows us to produce a higher quality product, however the production time is slightly longer than we have been accustomed to in the past. We appreciate your patience as we explore this new production opportunity.
