With four successful playing cards under their belt, Elite Playing Cards might be the most consistent custom playing card company out there. Not to mention efficient as they are popping these projects out at rapid speed. In fact, three projects were launched this summer alone. The first being Bicycle Majestic, which has already shipped to backers and the second being Bicycle Platinum, which finished funding less than a month ago. The third project and tonight's topic of discussion, is called Bicycle Evolution Playing Cards and launched on the evening of 8/12.
Although Elite's current deck designs range from the traditional Majestic deck to the luxurious Ritual playing cards, they switch gears in the third project by taking us on a futuristic ride. Bicycle Evolution is an all black design that features carbon fiber and laser sharp blues and reds, which make the whole deck pop in all the right places. Despite being a futuristic design, Elite has managed to fit in the traditional Anglo-American court card designs fit within cutting edge borders that are reminiscent of escape pods on a deep space aircraft.
The project already has close to $5K in backer funds in only a few hours of being launched. Scheduled to take funds until September 11th, if funded the project will ship in December 2013.
