Hey guys, in case you're interested, I just launched the Outlaw playing Cards on Kickstarter.
My first deck in a few years, I'm super excited. Hope you like it.

It's funding now until Feb 16, 2018: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kingsandcrooks/outlaw-playing-cards

Thank you! And thanks to PricessTrouble for all the hard work in sharing new deck updates so far, awesome job!

This thread has lost the energy & focus after Andrea stepped away. Missing you now. Anyways, I don't think the post above has a place here as it is still unpublished so I ask Don to move it to its intended place and get this comment of mine moved as well.

Lee- I like the deck, it is really bad ass and made me remember decks from Joker and the thief.

Hello,
     I was curious if anyone in this forum would have an idea of how much a Microsoft deck signed by david blaine would go for these days? I have been trying to look around on the internet but can't seem to find any that have sold.
Thanks you

Playing Card Plethora / Re: "Ars Goetia" card game
« Last post by Don Boyer on January 16, 2018, 01:53:40 AM »
I, too, had the same question about who was printing this project when I saw no printer listed in the project description.

The "aged/worn" look is interesting, but I've seen it used and overused so much lately.  Perhaps if you went for something a bit different, something more akin to a woodcut printing?  Maybe even a "sloppy" woodcut printing, with an occasional extraneous drop of ink here and there or an area of an image being smudged a little.

I'd leave out the extra pips on the Aces.  It makes them look more like threes at a glance - the last thing you want to do with a deck of cards is make them easily confused for each other.  One pip in the art and one pip in each of the indices is just fine, the right amount - more than that and it's really not an Ace any more.

I like the overall Gothic look - but I've always been a fan of Sam Hayles/DOSEprod, so that says a lot!  ;)

Hi, thanks for sharing, good artwork and has a good chance.  My first thought was why do the cards look like they were photocopied, but I see that was a style you are going for.  However, it looks too similar to a fax or an image that was scanned in or copied at low resolution.  Perhaps try making the background pure white or experiment with other aging techniques.  My next thought was what printer, but I see in comments you are considering Make Playing Cards.  Not the best choice, but a good option for low volume.  However by not listing it the potential backers may question if you thought out and planned all expenses and thus may be worried about it falling apart during printing or fulfillment, but the price and funding goal are in line so maybe not as much of a concern.  Either way though you should pick a printer and make that obvious.

Good luck!
