[i]ABOUT THIS PROJECT...[/i]

Welcome to the campaign for [url=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/penguinmagic/honeybee-special-edition-metalluxe-gold-foil-playi]Honeybee Special Edition MetalLuxe Playing Cards![/url]

[img]images/Reviews/bee2.jpg[/img]

This is an [i]exclusive & limited deluxe edition[/i] of our fantastic [i]Honeybee Playing Cards[/i]. In this deck we have an all-new custom back design and tuck box design.

The card backs will be created with black ink and gold foil. Being able to stamp foil directly onto the backs of playing cards is a recent innovation at [i]USPCC[/i], using their "[i]MetalLuxe[/i]" process. This material shines and reflects in a gorgeous way, much more than metallic inks!

For years, the only option to give a deck a metallic look was ink, which absorbs into the paper and only gives a subtle effect. By applying pure foil directly to the cards, the [i]MetalLuxe[/i] process creates level and shine that is unparalleled. We could not be more excited about using this process on this very special Honeybee deck!

Cards as special as this definitely need a box to match; and this tuck box will be far from ordinary. It will be crafted from high-grade black paper (not black ink printed over white paper), with TWO types of foil. It will truly be a sight to behold and will be an instant stand-out in your collection.

On the faces, we have custom Beekeeper Jokers, a custom Beehive Ace of Spades, deep high-roller red on the Heart/Diamond suits, and custom colors and textures applied to all the court cards.

We have no stretch goals for this campaign - we feel the [i]MetalLuxe[/i] deck is awesome in it's own right!

We will be printing the [url=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/penguinmagic/honeybee-special-edition-metalluxe-gold-foil-playi]Honeybee Special Edition[/url] with [b]The United States Playing Card Company[/b]. Our Honeybee decks have always handled like a DREAM and these are no exception. They will be printed on embossed Casino-Grade Bee stock with Grade-A "Magic" finish for ultimate fanning, spreading, durability, and longevity. They will also be traditionally cut (the blade goes through the face side) which makes table faro shuffles and other gambling moves significantly easier to accomplish. [i]USPCC[/i] has found a way to make foil-stamped decks that handle every bit as well as their standard printed decks!

If you would like to add-on a T-shirt, coin, or Standard Honeybee V2 deck, please refer to the add-on chart and add the combined amount of your desired add-ons to the dollar amount of your base pledge. You will be able to specify your desired add-ons during the [i]BackerKit[/i] process after the campaign has ended.

Thank you so much for your support, we can't wait to deliver these superb decks! :)

[i]RISKS AND CHALLENGES[/i]

We have a close relationship with [i]USPCC[/i] and designer [b]Randy Butterfield[/b], so we expect no issues with the design and printing of the decks. The artwork is complete and ready for submission to the factory. Any unexpected problems will be dealt with swiftly and we will always provide progress updates to our backers.

At [url=http://www.penguinmagic.com]Penguin[/url] we have produced and shipped over a dozen different deck designs. We have been in business for nearly 15 years and have our own dedicated warehouse and shipping team, which means we have the resources and experience to ship your pledge rewards quickly, accurately, and with care.

We will be using [i]BackerKit[/i] to facilitate the add-on process.
