This is a truly unique playing card project currently live on Kickstarter. Created by Sly Kly, the Carbon Fiber Playing Cards is a beautifully crafted, one-of-a kind deck that is sure to impress.
The campaign is aiming for $35k in funding and will most likely be funded in the next couple of days as the project hits 52% of its funding goal in less than 48 hours. What makes this project so unique is that the standard deck of playing cards are printed on Real Carbon Fiber, which is very popular in the Aerospace industry, Military, and Motorsports due to its high strength to weight ratio (for another material of the same weight, it is likely to be much stronger).
While the material of the deck is unique, the design is not. The card faces are standard and will be printed White and Red ink on Black 3k Twill Carbon Fiber. The two contrasting colours gives the deck a very mysterious yet elegant look.
No unique tuck case is included. A hinged clear plastic case is included in most pledge level. However, backers can up their pledges to include a Black or Clear Anodized Aluminum case with engraved Logo. A very nice compliment to this beautifully crafted deck.
Depending on funding level, there are three decks on offer to backers - Black Carbon Fiber, Black Carbon Fiber Accented with Red Thread ($70k Stretch Goal) and Black Carbon Fiber Accented with Blue Thread ($100k Stretch Goal). Also, choices of matte or gloss finish. Pledge starts from $100 (early bird).
The first deck is due out to the backers by January 2014.
