Set sail withTHE definitive nautical deck of playing cards. Designed in collaboration with our in-house artist Gustavo Magalhaes.
We wantedto create a classic deck of cardsreminiscent of vintage designs. We intentionally went this route because of the simple fact thatclassic designs survive the test of time.Seafarers strike the balance between classic design and our signature vibe. It's low-key, subtle and understated. Seafarers took 6 months to design and was illustrated completely by hand.
Seafarers features a back design writhing with symbolism, aniconicace of spades, as well a set of original court cards that tell an enchanting tale. The court cards are allcompletely custom. The back design’s themes bleed over and give life to these oceanic royals. They are unrestricted by borders, allowing us to take full advantage of the space of the card. By doing this, these courts develop their own distinct and individualistic characteristics. Each suit tells its own story, with each jack, queen and king thematically and symbolically linked. The sea green colour was specifically sampled from our founder James’ hometown in North Queensland Australia. The colour is matched to the colour of the estuarine waters leading to the Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef.
Seafarers features a custom tuck box, expertly printed at our letterpress studio in sunny California!
This deck utilises a premium imported cream dyed paper, and utilises a rich sea green colour which is stamped onto the paper stock. It also features a design on the interior of the box.
Proudly printed in the U.S.A on our Crushed Performance Stock and Linen Glide Finish for superior handling and durability.
When deciding on the color way for deck three, one goal was in mind. It has to be striking and attention grabbing. This edition was designed to tie the imagery and symbolism of the decks that came before it and add a deeper layer to the story and mythology that exists around our most popular design. This is the blood that ties each character in our symbolic design together.
Our original design returns for its third instalment. Now packaged in an extravagant blood red tuck box created by our letterpress studio based in California. It is crafted using imported, specially dyed paper and draped in embossed satin gold foil. We added a new perforated white and gold tax stamp style seal for gorgeous contrast.
Printed in the U.S.A by the United States Playing Card Company on their industry leading crush stock and finish for sublime handling.
The new and improved version of White Gold Edition. Featuring sublime heavy embossing on all surfaces of the tuck box and other refinements.
Our brand of playing cards are distinctly unique amongst other playing cards on the market. That said, White Gold Edition has set the bar high not only for us, but for our competitors. It is by far our most popular design to date and easily the most elegant.
The white and gold color palette creates a third dimension of meaning, contrasting the darkness of the original deck.
This builds upon the conflict between life and mortality that is apparent on the back design creating literal duality. This mirrors the turbulent story that is evident within the court cards within this pack of cards.
White Gold Edition's tuck box is expertly crafted at our professional letterpress studio using imported paper and gorgeous satin hot foil stamping techniques not only on the outside of the box but inside too. It is capped with a perforated seal for contrast and ease of access.
Printed by the famous United States Playing Card Company in Kentucky, featuring their famous crush stock and finish.
