Hey gang,

A quick heads up that two of my card buddies have another great project going on Kickstarter - Check it out!

Choice Cloverback Playing Cards - Green Edition

Top-quality custom playing cards designed by Ben Kolozsi and printed by the US Playing Card Company. Produced by Penguin Magic.



ABOUT THIS PROJECT...

Today we debut the most requested color yet for the Choice Cloverbacks... Green!
In creating the new Green Edition, we didn't just change the color from the previous editions. We made small but important adjustments from the earlier design to bring the look to perfection. This tribute to one of the most popular and hard-to-find vintage deck designs is the best version yet.

The Choice lineup has been hailed for their amazing handling and these new Cloverbacks are no exception!
They will be printed by USPCC on our Elite thin-crush Classic Paper that is a delight to use - the cards feel broken-in straight out of the box! If you've used the previous Choice decks or our Bicycle Elite Edition cards, you know how great these will feel! Of course, all of the cards come packaged in a classic tuck box.

Like the earlier editions, the new Choice Cloverbacks will include 3 Jokers with the Choice Clover Logo and a custom Ace of Spades.

Each deck will include a double-backed card that can be used for magic tricks or as a cut card during games.
The faces use the classic Arrco design, for a familiar yet vintage vibe that makes the deck stand out while remaining highly playable and performable.

We also wanted to do something special for this campaign, so we have created a BEAUTIFUL Purple version! The Purple deck is a stretch goal. When we hit $17,000 raised on the campaign, Purple will be unlocked.
Better yet - Purple will not be limited to a specific number, and it will be the exact same price as the Green edition. Both colors will be a one-time-only print run, with quantity dictated by the demand of the campaign.

Image


When and if the Purple version is unlocked, any pledge level will be able to choose all Green, all Purple, or a mix. IE, if you pledge for 12 decks, you will receive 12 Green decks if we hit our goal. If we surpass the stretch goal, you will be able to choose either 12 Green, 12 Purple, or a blend of the 2 colors. These choices will be made in your backer survey. We will send the surveys via BackerKit after the campaign has ended.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES...

We have a close relationship with USPCC and Ben Kolozsi, 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 submitted to the factory. Proofs have been created and approved. 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 several successful Kickstarter campaigns. We have learned from our past campaigns and have a great understanding of each phase of the process. We have been in business for over 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 process.

For higher quantities and/or wholesale inquiries, please contact us directly.

Thank you for supporting our project. Smile

Kevin Reylek
