When I found out that my good friend Lee Mckenzie (Kings and Crooks) was about to launch his new project, I couldn’t avoid that pleasant feeling, not too common, of a new quality deck, the result of meticulous work, prolonged in time, with an eye on the card fan and where the details make the difference. The campaign is live: ROYALES.
As in many of his creations, ROYALES is able to masterfully combine a refined and elegant style with a classic structure that drinks on the sources of the traditional cards what allows it to capture the interest of collectors, magicians and players.
Inspired by a casino night on the French Riviera, the cards have been produced with an almost monochromatic color scheme to highlight the profuse decorations with metallic inks that boost the idea of luxury and elegance.
The fully custom indexes strengthen the elegance of the designs.
The back is sophisticated and full of details related to casino gambling. A symmetrical structure allows us to enjoy symbols that are reminiscent of poker chips, roulette wheels or black jack tables.
The tuck case, how could it be otherwise, is a delicate work of art that combines the designs on the back with that of the ace of spades in a luxurious display with embossing and foil on a stunning matte paper.
Printing will be done by the USPCC on Q1 paper, the highest quality used in casino decks, and the air-cushion finish for a unique handling.
In addition to the ROYALES CLASSIC edition, with a blue tuck case and back, ROYALES PLAYERS, a limited edition, exclusive for Kickstarter, has been released. It has a beautiful red tuck case, a borderless back with a casino-style diamond pattern, larger indexes and a metallic seal.
IMPORTANT! During the first 24 hours, all the contributions to the project will get a complementary deck for free!. You can not miss it. Visit the project website and raise your pledge.
