The Virts: “Card flourishing is a visual art. That’s why the biggest question we constantly asked ourselves in the development of this deck was this: how can we make all your card flourishes look even better? That’s why we developed the Virtuoso deck with a concept we call ‘Adaptive Aesthetics’.”
A 100% Custom Deck
- Instead of taking the standard route of putting back design on one side of the box and the title on the other, we gave the tuck case a unique wraparound design inspired by the cards themselves. It’s simpler, subtler, yet more distinguishable. Even the ace of spades was a result of inevitable design.
- The ace was created by tracing out the intersecting lines of our back design, resulting in one of the most iconic Ace of Spades on a custom deck.
- The faces of the Virtuoso deck were illustrated by one of Singapore’s top illustrators, Morby Lin. A closer look also reveals that the faces weren’t created with curves, but many straight lines to stay congruent with the back design.
- Every suit was given its own design theme, with modern takes on the classic design. The King, Queen and Jack of every kingdom also receive their very own emblem, giving royalty what it deserves.
QUALITY FIT & FINISH
With quality as a base, we then gave the Virtuoso deck a well-balanced feel for optimal card flourishing. We took the classic Tally Ho Linoid finish that card flourishers know and love, and applied it onto a modern casino-grade stock to our specifications.
The Virtuoso deck has a very balanced weight and feel. It gives you all the feedback you need when handling the cards, so you can easily calibrate the style and feel of each flourish as you do it.
The deck fans with amazing control, splits into clean packets when cutting, and packets stay together when flying through the air.
It is also just the right thickness, so you have really comfortable control, all while maintaining a satisfying resistance for cuts and long springs. The cards also have that awesome “snap” that card flourishers love, and that gives you spectacular air time when shooting cards through the air.
Printed by the United States Playing Card Company
The very deck you’ll be holding in your hands isn’t only made by the best playing card manufacturer in the world, they’re made with the highest production standards they could give us.
The Virtuoso deck is produced by United States Playing Card Company (USPCC), in Q1 standard to ensure the highest quality possible of your deck. It is also exclusively printed on USPCC’s web press, the very same press used by the largest casinos, ensuring world class durability, feel, and finish.
