Crujir Playing Cards was designed by Alex Matencio, and realised and produced by Area52Magic. They are designed in collaboration with Diva Playing Cards.
Only 2000 decks will be made, ever.
They are specially designed for cardistry, with curated, specially chosen colors. The faces are modified to the perfect extent, suitable for magicians and cardists alike, but also stay true to the ever recognizable Bicycle face cards. Magic and lefty-friendly design.
Its pronounced "CREW - HIR"
Each deck comes with a double backer, duplicate card, and an ad card.
The backs feature rich CMYK colors. The design is made in such a way that all fans, spreads, and cuts complement the different elements. The lines look amazing in spreads and fans, while the circles move along with the cards in twirls, spins, and cuts. The block-like elements make for fantastic packet cuts as well.
Made for motion.
A mixture of Bauhaus, geometry, and colors. Lines, blocks, circles, and sharp edges come together to create the one-of-a-kind back design on Crujir Playing Cards.
The Faces are custom made, using Bicycle faces as an inspiration and base. As magicians ourselves, we wanted to keep the faces standard and recognizable enough so as not to provoke suspicion, but also unique and custom enough to suit a cardistry deck.
All Face cards are borderless and are increased 20% in size. This unique combination gives more intricate patterns and facial expressions, and provides smaller details with a more vivid presence. Clothing colors match the backs.
The tuck case was made to complement the overall design. No detail is left unattended. The tuck case features rich supplementary artwork that gives the user a peek of the canvas they're about to open.
This tuck case features several smaller elements, which give it a unique, asymmetrical yet organised look.
Crujir Playing Cards will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company
All decks will be premium (Bee) stock, double crushed, with an air cushion finish.
This is the best combination USPCC offers, and is also thus the most expensive one to produce.
Premium crushed stock allows for comfortable, soft springs and bends.
Air cushion finish allows for the smoothest fans, spreads, and cuts.
A traditional cut allows for effortless faro shuffles.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How often can I receive my subscription box?
A: We ship one box to you per month depending on when you pay. So this can be any time of the month. You can pause, skip, or cancel your subscription at any time. You can even purchase this as a 'one time purchase' to try the product out if you don't wish to commit to a subscription.
Q: Do I HAVE to subscribe?
A:No! You can purchase this on a one-time basis whenever you feel like it. Let's say you purchased in January, but you know you won't want another box until a few months later, you can simply purchase on a one time payment.
That way you don't have to worry about a recurring subscription - whatever suits you best.
Q: When is payment taken?
A: A payment will recurr from the date that you made your first payment. E.g if you pay for your box on June 1st, your next bill will repeat on July 1st. However if you purchased a one-time payment option you will be charged immediately and it will not set up a repeated payment each month.
Q: What if I receive a deck I do not like?
A: This is a mystery product, so unfortunately we will not refund / exchange decks that you do not like.
Q: How do I cancel? Can I switch my plan? Can I pause my plan?
A: Simply log into your TCI account and you will be able to find your subscription. By viewing your recent orders you will find a 'manage subscription' button that gives you various options.
This also allows you to edit your payment details, addresses and so on.

Messymod, short forMessy Modernism, is a minimal approach to graphic-design conceived by Los Angeles based creative team, TRUF. Born from their love of geometry, pattern, white space, Bauhaus, Miró and perhaps a little too much caffeine.
The playing cards feature a completely custom design in trademark Messymod fashion, which can be described as minimal, modern, graphic, quirky, stylized, grotesque, delightful and just plain weird.
Sustainably-produced using FSC certified paper and vegetable-based inks on our trademark stock and finish. Suitable for all games requiring a standard deck.
Produced in collaboration with Art of Play and printed in the USA by United States Playing Card Company. FLUX Playing Cards is a deck that explores the boundary between static and motion. Its unique back design makes it the first deck that can be animated on the surface of the card. This adds a fascinating, extra dimension of motion to your moves.
The deck also comes in a sleek and sturdy plastic box. On one side, it elegantly showcases the animation of the back design every time you keep or remove the cards from the box. And on the other, its image, while animated, spells out the name of the deck, "FLUX".
Each deck comes with 2 striped plastic cards, one vertical, one horizontal (see final picture)

Stemming from the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, it has been a ubiquitous part of human culture for centuries. From the philosophical to the artistic, the fascination, fear and appreciation of death has consistently captivated and cultivated our imagination. Many practitioners of this theory kept with them, artifacts or keepsakes which served as a reminder that the only thing certain in life, was death. Many of these items were often objects (watches, necklaces) in the shape of skulls.
The low-poly design represents a simplistic one. The bare "bones" of 3D creation and graphic art, the first steps of animation can be interpreted as the beginning of 'virtual' life.
Many historians believe that playing cards represented a deeper, esoteric meaning, that each suit was one of the four seasons. Each card within a suit was one of the thirteen phases of the moon. The fifty-two cards in a deck would represent the fifty-two weeks of the year and together, this would represent just one year of your life.
A constant reminder of our fleeting time on earth.

In the cosmos, the beautiful astronomical wonders are infinite: the clusters of stars full of dazzling light, the ever-changing nebulae, the mysterious black holes, and the unknown galaxies that nurture new life.
You can feel the same magic the moment that you touch the deck. When your fingertips connect with the box, the original black background gives way to a vibrant mix of colours! The thermosensitive paper reacts to your body heat and changes into clouds of purple and green in the Spaceman version and blue and orange in UFO.
The magical effect of the patented thermal pigment is as unpredictable as the universe itself and gives you the feeling of meditative resonance with outer space. Feel the box and let yourself be amazed.
On the front box of the Spaceman edition, there is an astronaut's helmet drawn in silver metallic line, over a square of purple foil with the silhouette of a human skull in the middle of it. The line of text at the bottom commemorates the time when the first human astronaut Yuri Gagarin went into outer space. You can find a diamond shape in purple and green foil at the back of the box, reminiscent of a spaceship ready to be launched.
The UFO edition uses blue and orange as the main colours of the deck. At the front of the box, there is a silver line drawing of an unidentified flying object overlaying a metallic blue circular field with the outline of an alien head. The text below reminds us of the first UFO ever discovered. At the back of the box, there is an outline of a UFO seemingly flying at high speed in blue and orange metallic foil.
Wander in wonder o'er the wild blue yonder. We walk a land without end from green meadows to the bend.

A deck made for cardists, magicians, and collectors, Splash is an essential, every day carry.

The "Offset KAKI" is a limited edition of 2,500 decks. This Concept deck is our bold take on traditional playing cards. In cardistry, our mistakes are often a starting point to come up with new moves. We took that same idea to create this deck: inspired by the misprint of certain playing cards, we wanted to use the "offset" as part of the actual design. 4 different backs, 4 different directions. Either follow the arrow, or simply let them give a new esthetic to your cuts. The colors, inspired by urban life, make this deck a perfect accessory to match your streetwear looks.
