First Look: Lock-n-Load Playing Cards by Rattle Shuttle

From Sci-Fi to the Wild West. The team at Rattle Shuttle is back on Kickstarter with a brand new deck of playing cards, Lock-n-Load. According to the campaign page,
This deck represents a big part of American history. It stands for the Second Amendment, which gave the right to keep and bear arms to citizens, which gave the power to citizens' hands. This made it easier for people to believe in democratic ideals, and it is one of the reasons why the United States of America had a strong start and is one of the biggest economic capitals of the world today. In 2021 the Second Amendment will be 230 years old. In celebration of that right, we created two decks that will accurately capture a piece of American history and the right of every American citizen.

Designed by Dmitry Lebedev, all of the face cards have carefully handcrafted imagery of guns that are accurate to their real-life examples. In terms of visual aesthetics, the engraving style of the illustration is common around the time when gun displays were popular.
The imagery of the Gadsden flag can be found on the back of the cards. Along with the timber rattlesnake, the back also includes the famous motto, "DONT TREAD ON ME".

The back was designed in a way to look new and different, but on the other hand, it reminds you of the deck you might find in your grandma's home. It looks familiar, like an old friend.

The colors on the cards are pretty subdued with the brown color- polished wood gun stock and gray colorway, gunmetal.

The deck is packaged in a tuck box with gold foil and embossing for the brown deck and silver for the gray one. The faces of both decks will include three colors - black, gold, and red for the brown one, and black, silver, and red for the gray one.

Cards will be printed on 310gsm stock German black core paper with premium linen. The deck is scheduled to launch on Kickstarter, 26th February.
