Kickstarter: 45s Playing Cards by Mano Santa and Enigma Cards



The 45s Playing Cards was originally teased during the AMCM (Abierto de Magia y Cardistry México), a Magic and Cardistry event held in México City last month. Since then, it has gained popularity on social media, primarily on Facebook and Instagram. The deck is designed by cardistry group Mano Santa (Instagram: @mn.snt) and produced by Enigma Cards. According to the Kickstarter campaign page,
It’s been some time since we wanted to make a deck of playing cards, this deck sums up what we love about cardistry, music, and design. This being our debut deck means a lot, we’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction of the community, we really love this deck and hope you too.

In terms of design, the deck took references from pop culture and elements from the past decades with the idea of connecting the packets through different card backs.
The concept went through a lot of experimenting with shapes, sizes, and colors change a lot of times, we tried to do something different, colorful and overall fun.

Crafted for the card flourishes in mind, the final back design is comprised of three connected design- the horizontal, the vertical and the curve.
What we like about this mix of shapes is that every time you perform a cut it’s different, that it goes not just into showing a cut but actually enjoying it more through connecting and experimenting with the different back designs.

The team wanted to keep the deck simple. With that in mind, the tuck box has very few elements that mirror the main back design scheme with the color lines, with a bold series of numbers on the front. One cool thing we noticed was the possibility of arranging the back design into a very cool uncut sheet design!
