WELCOME TO THE LAUNCH OF:

by VXD International and in collaboration with Lance T Miller.

You've found a truly unique product here and your backing will help us take it to the next level and revolutionize the playing cards industry. PLEASE back us...we cannot produce this ground-breaking product without your support! 

Back our project and you will own a limited-production and numbered, spectacularly luxurious, set of playing cards, which we guarantee none of your friends will have ever seen or even thought existed. Add the ultimate flair to your poker games, magic tricks, or cardistry flourishes. Or just purchase this exclusive gadget for a lucky friend or loved one. 

We want you to show off with this cool new invention - The only patented deck of playing cards in existence on planet earth!

Decks are limited as follows:

Vegas Classic = 499 Units, Vegas Gold = 499 Units, Vegas Gold Metal = 499 Units, Vegas Ultraviolet = 499 Units, Vegas Ultraviolet Metal = 499 Units.

N.B - All numbering will be matching where a backer has pledged for more than one deck. 

Here's the science bit:

Diffractor Playing Cards incorporate transparent holographics that are normally only seen on security and identity documents, such as your passport or drivers licence. The concept behind the technology allows the addition of a further layer of eye-catching custom holographic artwork over and above the standard playing card ink artwork, via carefully aligned and detailed transparent holographic foils, carefully stamped (with heat and pressure) into the card front and back faces. The deck has taken many many years to bring to market, due to the complexities of combining the techniques used in security document printing with the traditional characteristics required of a deck of cards (such as texture, slip, snap and weight). All these key characteristics of a quality deck of cards have been painstakingly maintained and are un-compromised!

In addition to the technology incorporated here, we have teamed up with a world-renowned American playing card illustrator, Lance T Miller, who has produced some quite beautiful designs for this deck of cards, to tell a story of the foundation and identity of Las Vegas. We're honoured to be working with him to bring you this deck in the best possible aesthetic form it could be in. Form and function is everything!

The rewards on offer here are uniquely created for and on offer via KICKSTARTER and this launch campaign ONLY. You will never find these limited decks in the shops.

So folks, please grab yourselves a deck or two right now and from now on, don't just play your cards right.....

Risks and challenges

We have already proven the manufacturing of the patented technology and also the standard of our delivery, by release of a short run last year on Kickstarter. See here:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zeedog/vertex-deck-vxd-las-vegas-edition/comments
While this new edition features new artwork, holographics and boxes, the overall processes of manufacture are the same and we are very confident of a similar high standard of delivery.
