Hey gang,

Lovers of the pasteboards should know my pal Kevin Reylek has a new card project going on Kickstarter that many of you really should consider supporting. Smile

SOLAIRE - Custom Playing Cards by Penguin Magic

Custom playing cards with a cosmic vibe, grounded in mathematics. Created by Kevin Reylek and printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT...

Born of mathematics, forged on Earth, and launched into outer space.

Image


SOLAIRE Playing Cards are a two-deck set representing Solar and Lunar elements.
The Flare Edition (Orange) represents the sun while the Phase Edition (Blue) represents the moon.

THE DESIGN...

The design elements are based on the Fibonacci sequence of numbers both in sizing and in spacing, giving them a symmetry and balance similar to the many instances in nature where this amazing sequence can be found.
The full-bleed borderless backs remind us that the reaches of space know no bounds.

NOTE: 3D renders created by Nicolas Molines

Because the decks have reflective back designs, they can be combined in many unusual and inventive ways, making them ideal for cardistry. All of the faces have been customized but remain recognizable to still allow for ease of game play.
In addition to the altered court and number cards, both decks feature a 100% custom Ace of Spades and custom Jokers.

The cards are housed in custom tuck boxes and topped off with custom sticker seals.

The SOLAIRE decks will be a one-time only print run with only 2,500 of each color printed.

Image


MATERIALS...

The SOLAIRE Decks will be printed at the US Playing Card Company on our signature thin-crush Elite stock with embossed Magic finish - the same high quality standard used on our Bicycle® Elite Edition cards. This stock & finish combo makes the cards soft and pliable without sacrificing snap or durability.

Image


RISKS AND CHALLENGES...

The designs are complete and have already been submitted to USPCC for proofing. We have a long history of creating projects with USPCC, so we expect no issues with the printing of the decks.
Because these decks do not use any unusual materials or processes, the printing should be very straightforward.

Any unexpected problems will be dealt with swiftly and we will always provide progress updates to our backers. Smile

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 your support!

Kevin Reylek
