Playing Card Plethora / New Kickstarter Deck
« Last post by ThaMantis666 on October 19, 2017, 07:39:53 AM »
Hey guys,
20-year-old graphic designer here.
I just launched my first Kickstarter project and thought you might like it.
I designed a unique deck with vibrant colours called ARDOR.

Here's the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/276230133/ardor-playing-cards

What do you guys think? Like the deck?
Kind regards,
Ian

Rapidly ate breakfast before getting ready for the TOUR - the trip to USPC's factory! What can I say - it's an impressive facility, employs over 300 people and most of what else happened there can't really be discussed due to a non-disclosure agreement! 

Thanks for your report, Don!  And congratulations to the winners of this years Diamond Awards!

So does the above me that you aren't able to share any insights you gained about USPCC decks and how they are made?  For example, is there anything you gleaned that alters some of the conclusions suggested/discussed in this thread?

The Dawson Lifetime Achievement Award went to Gene Hochman, given posthumously to his son, Mike.

Next year's convention will be in Cleveland.  It's a nod to the Chicago Playing Card Collectors, which is merging with 52 Plus Joker in the coming year - they specialize in single-card collecting!

I'm glad Dawson got an award named after him. The last time I sent an email to him, I never got a reply. I didn't know it at that time, but he was already hospitalized.

The Chicago club is probably the oldest organization in the world dedicated to collecting playing cards. I think they've been around since the 1950s.

Wow, so much to tell, but not a lot of time right now.  I'll get back online tomorrow and give more of a recap.

I *will* say congratulations to our Diamond Award Winners
The Dawson Lifetime Achievement Award went to Gene Hochman, given posthumously to his son, Mike.
Playing Card Artist of the Year: Linnea Gits and Peter Dunham of Uusi, for the Blue Pagan and Hyde Park Mouldings decks.
Playing Card Deck of the Year: Golden Oath, by Lotrek of Oath Playing Cards.
Special Award given to Judy Dawson for her many years of service as editor of Clear the Decks.

Next year's convention will be in Cleveland.  It's a nod to the Chicago Playing Card Collectors, which is merging with 52 Plus Joker in the coming year - they specialize in single-card collecting!  I'm told that Cleveland was a popular destination for them.  It was further announced at the annual meeting that we're striving to get a deal for 2019 for taking the convention to...drumroll, please...NEW YORK CITY!  The details are still being worked out, but yeah, we're trying to get the Big Apple!  The club is looking to use some of its resources to help defray the overall costs involved with a New York convention, but it's all in the air as of yet, nothing's set in stone.  More information will be released to the club as we have more details to give.
