Card Radar: Bicycle Inspired Wooden Playing Card Case by Josh Coyer

Josh Coyer, a designer from Wiscosin Rapids, designed a custom playing card case that features laser engraving. The case, which was designed for two playing card decks, pays homage to the Bicycle playing card brand that everyone knows and loves. Josh added a laser engraved Bicycle with the words Special Edition Playing Cards engraved in two different fonts.

The finishing touches on this deck include the engraved 1885, which is the date Bicycle card began printing. With that, Bicycle's parent company, United States Playing Card Company was founded in 1867 under the name Russell, Morgan & Co. The company didn't start printing actual playing cards until 1981 with the first line being Congress No. 606 playing cards.

Apart from the history lesson that this case inspires, the playing card case features custom designed suits that are engraved into the bottom of the lid.

These were created for a school project and do not seem to be available for sale at this time.
