Social Media Roundup: Cool Deck Images!


Social network such as Twitter and Instagram provides a platform for breaking news and instant reactions. Cardists, Magicians and Card aficionados are often rarely passed up an opportunity to show off their card skills. Social networks are fast-moving and there are a good amount of posts that don't get the recognition they deserve.

To change that, we've rounded up some of the best Tweets and Instagram posts from the past week with the hashtag #kardify.

The Grotesk Macabre Signature Edition Playing Cards by Lotrek of Oath Playing Cards (previously Half Moon Playing Cards) in a prototype Carat X1LE Limited Edition ‘Lotrek’ Case. . Lotrek continually pushes the boundaries of modern playing card printing by experimenting with different paper stocks, finishes and printing techniques, in order to create his elaborate and luxurious works of art. . The Grotesk Macabre Signature Edition is a perfect example of his skills as an artist.  The tuck is made of red leather with gold foil and the cards are printed on red stock with full bleed black ink on the backs and faces, which leaves the sides red after cutting.  The card backs are double foiled (red & gold) and the faces have red and gold metallic inks and foil embellishments while the Aces and Jokers use no inks, only foil. . As with most of Lotrek’s decks, Grotesk Macabre Signature Edition is self printed and the stock used is quite different than the stock used by the mainstream printers (thicker), which results in a slightly thicker deck and tuck.  Unfortunately, these decks are too thick to fit into a regular Carat X1 Single Deck Case and too small for a Carat XST Slip Tuck Case, which honestly, has bothered me…until now. . Recently, I had the extreme pleasure of working with Rick Davidson to create a special Carat Case for his DeNovo (United Cardists 2018 Annual Deck) Signature Editions, which is thicker than normal decks due to the special 3mm acrylic insert that comes with each Signature Deck.  It just so happens that the bigger Lotrek deck fits perfectly in the DeNovo Carat Case, so I decided to have an extra limited batch produced, which I will be offering this summer via direct sales. . To find out more about Lotrek and his incredible decks, visit his website at www(dot)oathplayingcards(dot)com.  For more information about Carat Cases, visit my website (link in profile) or DM me. .
