ABOUT THIS PROJECT...

YOUR NEW WORKER BEES!

Honeybee Elite Edition brings Penguin's acclaimed Honeybee Brand into our Elite family.
We've combined the beauty and practicality of a borderless deck with the incredible feel of our Elite Edition lineup of decks.

This gorgeous new edition returns Honeybees to their borderless roots with an edge-to-edge honeycomb pattern. Available in Red and Blue, these are the best decks ever for a night of Poker or for magicians and card mechanics who prefer a borderless design.

INCREDIBLE FEEL AND HANDLING

One year ago, we introduced the Bicycle® Elite Edition to the community. We applied the classic Rider Back design to a new thin-crush stock that feels broken in right out of the box. Since then Bicycle® Elite has received over a hundred 5-star reviews with many comments about the stock being GREAT for gambling moves such as bottom dealing and second dealing.

We recognized that many of these card-shark moves are even more deceptive with a borderless design, so we got to work on Honeybee Elite Edition. Like the rest of the Elite family, the

Honeybee Elite
will be on thin-crush stock and traditionally cut - perfect for gambling demos, table faro shuffles, and more.

Now you can enjoy the delightful feel and handling that has been hailed by the world's top card professionals without your audience ever raising an eyebrow.

CUSTOM COURTS, JOKERS AND THE ACE OF SPADES

In addition to the custom back design and tuck box, each Honeybee Elite Deck includes customized court cards, jokers, and an elegant Ace of Spades.

Inspired by classic designs for a traditional look, we've revamped the colors on the court cards to fit in with the Red & Blue backs of Honeybee Elite.

Each deck will include one Color Joker, one Black & White Joker, and the custom Ace of Spades.
The Ace carries our now classic bee mascot who has lived in every edition of our Honeybee Decks.
The Jokers evoke a classic feel with a bit of whimsy thanks to our jester character. The hive he carries is a nod to previous editions of Honeybee Decks.

Each deck will also include a double-backed card (Red/Red or Blue/Blue to match each deck) as well as a blank-faced card.

PRICED TO USE

We have priced the Honeybee Elite Edition quite low.
While these will look great on your shelf as a collectible, our main intent is for this edition to really be used. We are offering terrific Kickstarter Discounts off of retail at all levels. Because the prices are so low, we are not offering any additional early bird discounts - you're all early birds! Smile

STRIPPER DECKS

What's a Stripper Deck? It's a diabolically-altered deck that allows you to achieve incredible magic tricks with very little skill or practice. As an add-on, we are offering factory-made Stripper Deck versions of Honeybee Elite. These will be die-cut at USPCC with a slightly tapered edge, so they will work perfectly and handle beautifully. The Stripper decks are only available as add-ons. Just increase your base pledge accordingly for the number of Stripper Decks you want. Just like the regular Honeybee Elite, the stripper decks will be available in Red and Blue, and you will choose your color(s) via BackerKit.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES

We have a close relationship with both USPCC and artist Randy Butterfield so we expect no issues with the design or printing of the decks. Because the decks do not use any unusual materials or processes, the printing should be very straightforward.

The artwork is complete and has already been approved by USPCC for printing. Any unexpected problems will be dealt with swiftly and we will always provide progress updates to our backers.

At Penguin we have produced and shipped hundreds of products, including 4 successful Kickstarter campaigns. We have learned from each of our past campaigns and have a great understanding of each phase of the process.
We have been in business for 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 BackerKit to facilitate the add-on and fulfillment process.

Thank you! Smile
