Kings Wild's Postage Paid Playing Cards Are Now Available!



Finally released to the public, Postage Paid was the March deck featured in the Kings Wild Shorts subscription. The Postage Paid deck was originally inspired by playing card collector Joseph Pierson (Instagram: @pip_nosher) who has one of the most extensive and diverse playing card collections in the world.


Joseph posted images of playing cards from the early 20th century on Instagram that was written on and sent as postcards. Using cast-off playing cards was a common occurrence before the post office made the minimum size of a parcel 4"x 6". According to designer Jackson Robinson,
This collection of playing card "postcards" sparked the idea in my brain as I wanted to see the rest of the cards in the incomplete deck Joseph had managed to piece together over the years. I set to task and created my own deck of postcards playing cards, using Joseph's unique deck as the springboard for the idea.

The number cards, aces, jokers, and the Kings Wild standard courts in the Postage Paid deck features a stamp and also the postal address of the recipient of the card. Each of the cards also has a traditional style "postage paid" stamp, canceling out the postage stamp. All 50 states are present with a city representing the state.


As a special feature of the deck, Jackson asked all of the Kings Wild Shorts subscribers to send in a fictitious address that meant something to them so that they could be immortalized within the deck in their own special way.


These truly unique decks are available now from kingswildproject.com for $15.
