The Persian Empire - A NEW Bicycle Playing Card Deck.

$13,021

Thanks for stopping here to check out my project.

The Project is called "The Persian Empire". I spent the past year designing this custom deck of playing cards.  I had a great time creating these cards and now i need your support me to make this project come alive!

Creating artwork for one deck of cards means creating 54 designs for the deck itself as well as designing the custom look for the packaging on the box.The faces of the deck are designed based on ancient kings, queens & soldiers of Persia. Every element in the designs are related to the Persian heritage and culture. My goal is to give your value and enjoyment from these decks by creating work that is unique, highly playable and instantly collectable.  I hope you find them so as well and are inspired to back me.

When you pledge to this project not only do you get a meaningful reward but also you get to join the creative process. As we go about the project I will post updates asking my backers for their wish list and ideas for extended goals.

Thanks to all my backers from the previous project. I'm blown away by your incredible support. THANK YOU!

Below you can find the sample cards and the add-on price sheet.

Risks and challenges

This deck is designed from A to K & ready to be printed. The production should take about 2 months after the project is funded. I'm going to do my best to have these cards delivered for Christmas.
