OTHERWORLDLY PLAYING CARDS
Legends PCC uses space-age materials and techniques to create a custom deck of cards that is worthy for a trip to Mars on Space X's Falcon Heavy!
Originally researched and printed in 2016 for the Space of the Art Kickstarter campaign, and now released in this second edition in 2020.
Fit for passage on a starship, this deck feels and looks like the future. We manufacture each deck with solar-sail material, typically used to propel spacecraft with radiation pressure exerted by sunlight. This ultra thin holographic mylar is laminated onto the tuck box and card sheets before they are printed on or cut. This forms a strong bond to the paper that won't deform or peel, making that side waterproof and more durable than a typical playing card.
We then print the inks on the mylar material with a 2-ton sheet-fed offset UV printing press, and cure them with UV light, not an infrared heat tunnel. This yields a different feel to to the cards than our standard Classic Finish.
The card faces have no expense spared, each space man / astronaut / cosmonaut features metallic gold pantone ink visors, with a clear spot UV applied over the top to give it that extra shine.
Price starts at $14.20 and will increase as quantity decreases. To the moon and beyond!
A Stardust / silver flake edition of our solid carbon fiber card clip is also available, in limited quantity of 30 units.
