The best deck for card flourishing.

Sold out in a few hours, but we have managed to get a limited supply.

The Virts: “Card flourishing is a visual art. That’s why we developed the Virtuoso deck with a concept we call ‘Adaptive Aesthetics’.”

Watch Adaptive Aesthetics in action.

A 100% Custom Deck

  • A custom tuck box. It’s a unique wraparound design inspired by the cards themselves. It’s simpler, subtler, yet more distinguishable.
  • A custom and iconic Ace of Spades. The Ace was created by tracing out the intersecting lines of the back design.
  • The faces of the Virtuoso deck were illustrated by one of Singapore’s top illustrators, Morby Lin. The faces weren’t created with curves, but many straight lines to stay congruent with the back design.
  • Every suit has a custom design theme. The King, Queen and Jack of every kingdom has their very own emblem, giving them the royalty that they deserve.

QUALITY FIT & FINISH

With quality as a base, the Virtuoso deck has a well-balanced feel and is optimal card flourishing. The Virts transformed the classic Tally Ho Linoid finish that card flourishers know and love, and applied it onto a modern casino-grade stock.

The deck gives you the feedback you need when handling the cards, so you can easily calibrate the style and feel of each flourish.

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 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

Kings Playing Cards in White By Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison, now available from KardsGeek

http://shop.kardsgeek.com/kings-playing-cards-in-white-by-peter-mckinnon-and-daniel-madison/

In 2012, Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison collaborated on a video project in the dry lake-beds of Las Vegas, not quite realising at that time such a simple meeting of two creative minds would lead them to The KINGS deck.

Whenever Peter and Daniel work together, waves are made and a unique creative vessel is opened. The Kings deck is the ultimate representation of their joint creative forces.

Peter and Daniel spent a lot of time brainstorming, designing and creating their ideal deck of cards. Cards that would be fit for Kings.

Peter and Daniel were meticulous and scrupulous with their requirements for the deck. They tested numerous stocks and finishes until they found and created a unique Kings finish and stock. The cards were traditionally cut to further advance gambling techniques, they are sturdy yet flexible enough for cardistry and sleight-of-hand.

They wanted a box that would look like a block of gold – direct from the Kings share – with a deck of cards perfectly designed to cater for both minimalistic beauty and a stunning design.

Peter and Daniel decided to make the Kings deck a secret weapon right out of the box. Readily stacked in Mnemonica AND fully marked so that not only would the performer be able to identify every singe card in the deck by the back alone (see http://hwst.ellusionist.com/KINGSareMARKED.pdf), but also have the ability perform instant Mnemonica miracles. They added a double-backer and two unique and personalised jokers, and on top of that, they lost the ad-card and replaced it with an Angle Z Gaff card.

Two years in the making, Peter and Daniel returned to Las Vegas to celebrate their creation and film a heist that would represent their collaborative brilliance.

When you purchase the KINGS deck, you will get a PDF with instructions on how to learn the markings on the back of the cards.

This is, the KINGS deck.

ART OF THE KINGSMEN

As part of the campaign for KINGS, Peter & Daniel sent out a select number of decks to our favourite Instagram users across the world. Decks were sent through the States, Canada, France, Scotland, even as far as Slovakia. These users then posted their artistic brilliance that captured the KINGS brand, with the utmost precision and creativity.

Tomas Hlavaty – All the way from Slovakia, Tomas is an exceptional artist with some wild penmanship and typography skills. He is well known for painting on playing cards and having an incredible precision in doing so. Tomas can be found on Instagram at tomashlavaty

Adam Kirby – Otherwise known as ‘playingcardart’ in the Instagram community, takes some truly remarkable photographs. One of the best photographers around shooting our subject matter. It was a no brainer to get a deck of KINGS in his hands the second they rolled off the press. How he managed to not get the deck covered in what appears to be black tar is impressive, to say the least!

Chris Ramsay – A fellow Canadian to our team up north! Chris is a unique and creative force constantly pumping out meaningful, and thought provoking art with playing cards. Typically, there are too many photos of his we enjoy to pick just one. He can be found on Instagram at chrisramsay52

Benoit Pervier – All the way from France, Benoit constantly pumps out imagery that makes us laugh, think and marvel. Often clever, or a play on the actual name of the deck / cards, Benoit has an instantly recognizable style and we are thrilled to see the cards in his hands. he can be found on Instagram at benoitpervier

Jeremy Griffith – Known as ‘Lost Angelus’ online -The master of levitation and ‘floatation’ pictures. This guy will make anything float – digitally of course 😉 Aside taking some wild floating shots of decks of cards, Jeremy adds a creative twist with making those cards float in patterns and orientations that only the privy understand. He can be found on Instagram at lost_angelus

Skull & Bones Playing Cards now available from KardsGeek

Check them out here http://shop.kardsgeek.com/skull-bones-playing-cards/

First released over 100 years ago! These limited edition playing cards are available once again in both red and black with Cambric (embossed) feel.

Produced by the Conjuring Arts Research Center and printed by the United States Playing Card Co.

This deck is completely sold out at the Conjuring Arts Research Centre in New York.

Conjuring Arts produced this card off the back of discovering a single skull and bones card, apparently dating back 100 years. They say, “To our knowledge this is the only card like this that is known to exist and we don’t think any other collector has another single card, let alone a whole deck of them! We found the subject matter fun and up to date for today’s tastes so we had the art redrawn by hand and printed at USPCC”

Are they badass? Most definitely!

Inspired by legend. Derived from mythology. Illustrated by hand.

A new level of intricate design – Archangel Playing Cards. Illustrated by Tom Lane in the United Kingdom.

Good and Evil. Right and Wrong. Light and Darkness. Archangels.

Inspired by mythology, crafted by hand, and ripped from the pages of legend, comes a new level of intricate design – the Archangel Playing Cards.

Showcasing a battle of EPIC proportions.

A juxtaposition of good and evil, the Archangels illustrate an epic battle of angels and demons. A close look at the back design reveals a tale of two opposing forces. The angels on the left, and the demons on the right – locked into an eternal stalemate.

Six months of painstaking pen-and-ink illustration.

The result? Simply epic. Archangels contain original artwork on the box, back design, Joker, and the Ace of Spades. Never before seen debossed ridges provide a unique feel that compliment the gold foil across the face and sides of the playing card box.

Made in the USA at The United States Playing Card Company on top of the line quality papers, stock, and finish. Produced by theory11 and illustrated by Tom Lane in the United Kingdom.

Eco Friendly. Archangels are printed on FSC-certified paper derived from sustainable forests, using vegetable-based inks and starch-based laminates.
