Hey gang,

Here's an interesting Bicycle® deck...

Bicycle® Gnomes Playing Cards by Collectable Playing Cards


Bicycle® Gnomes Playing Cards by Collectable Playing Cards is bringing custom art work to life.


Attested from the early 18th century. Gnomes are used in Alexander Pope's "The Rape of the Lock". The creatures from this mock-epic are small, celestial creatures which were prudish women in their past-lives, and now spend all of eternity looking out for prudish women (in parallel to the guardian angels in Catholic belief). Other uses of the term gnome remain obscure until the early 19th century, when it is taken up by authors of Romanticist collections of fairy tales and becomes mostly synonymous with the older word goblin. This is a 100% custom designed Bicycle® Brand playing card deck.


  • Printed by The United States Playing Card Company
  • 100% custom playing card deck
  • Calssic Air-Cushion Finish
  • Custom deck seal
  • Includes a Double back gaff card

The back pattern is a tribute to our whimsical style. We are tribal and we are one with nature and it is portrayed perfectly in this design.


My friends truly are Kings, Queens and Jacks. Feast your eyes on the Gnome culture! We are Blacksmiths, Archers, Prospectors and Owl Riders. Not everyone can be a Gnome, but it's always fun to pretend.


Symbols have always been near and dear to our heart. We carefully crafted the insides of our pips to portray the night and the day. Peaceful and calm is what brings an ease to mind while pondering upon these figures.


This is Herb, the local jester. He's a noble man and his message to you is to collect what you love and love what you collect. We hope you love the Gnome Deck as much as we do.



The Bicycle® Gnomes Deck has already been approved by USPCC for printing. We expect to receive the the decks by January 2016 and immediately begin shipping to all our backers. We do not anticipate any challenges with this project.

How do we print and ship out rewards so quickly? We have a close relationship with USPCC. They are able to print our designs quickly and we have a state art fulfillment center to quickly ship out our backer rewards. With out you, our backers, we could not make this happen. A BIG thank you to Kickstarter and most importantly all of you!
