Coming soon from Midnight Card Company, another stunning deck of Playing Cards by the very talented Randy Butterfield:
Inspired by a time of legendary dragons, this mythical deck features beautiful dragon scales, gorgeous colours and borderless back design. Draconian will be available in 2 different edition, the Lightning and Spitfire decks.
We are honoured to have Randy here on Kardify to tell us more about his first solo crowd-funded project:
Ivan and I chose today for the first reveal of the Draconians because August 14th is a special day for Midnight Cards. Exactly two years ago today was the release of my first Deck design, the original ORNATES! Since that time I've seen the landscape of custom Playing Cards change dramatically every six months or so. The current trend is to create super-limited and rare editions to coincide with even more exclusive "Prototype" versions. Of course, this brings with it higher prices for the backers and customers that reach well over $20 or more per Deck. Hopefully this trend will soon turn for the better.
The Draconians will be printed, fittingly, by Legends Playing Card Co. The project will have a very simple setup - the Lightning and Spitfire Decks plus a Draconian Coin. NO high-priced "Limited", "Rare", "Exclusive" or "Prototype" Editions, just a strong design with the promise of a one-time printing and a print quantity to cover fulfillment plus a few extras for lost or damaged Decks. The Draconian is a one-off design (NO recolors) that will feature an Optical Illusion Borderless Back design and plenty of Foil, Embossing (Tucks) and Metallic Inks (Tucks and Cards) at a very cost effective price.
This project is scheduled to launch sometime next month (September). To keep up to date on the Draconian deck, follow Midnight Card Company on their Facebook page.
