5 Things You Should Know About Visions Playing Cards


Produced by Wounded Corner and beautifully designed by Christian Ellingstad of Arcadia Playing Cards, Visions Playing Cards is a gorgeous deck currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. The inspiration behind this deck comes from the vision and drive needed to guide us to reach our goals. According to the campaign page,
Whether you believe your path is pre-destined or completely by chance, it takes some vision and determination to keep moving forward. Our journeys are seldom simple and as we strive for happiness, we often encounter hardships. But these hardships are what build our strength. With this deck, we want to show the various highs and lows that make us all human. Without both the highs and the lows, there would be much less meaning.


So much thought has gone to the creation of this FULLY custom deck. From the suits, card backs to the tuck box, the elements in the design signify and reflects our emotions, struggles, dreams, or vision. Here are 5 things you should know about Visions Playing Cards: 

1. The inspiration behind this deck comes from the vision and drive needed to guide us to reach our goals. Whether you believe your path is pre-destined or completely by chance, it takes some vision and determination to keep moving forward. Steve Rosenfield of Wounded Corner told Kardify, "Our journeys are seldom simple and as we strive for happiness, we often encounter hardships. But these hardships are what build our strength. With this deck, we want to show the various highs and lows that make us all human. Without both the highs and the lows, there would be much less meaning."


2. Three Different Editions, Past, Present, and Future. Past and Present both printed with cold foil from Cartamundi on b9 slimline and tucks in 3 foils by Clove St Press. Future Edition will be recolored and printed with hot foil and metallic ink by the amazing Lotrek from Oath Playing Cards



3. Tuck and Back design. You will notice throughout the back design on the tuck and cards, that there are groups of 3 randomly placed dots that are more pronounced than the rest. These dots signify the past, present, and future, and find their way into several other places within the deck. 


The back design was created in such a way that each person can interpret their own meaning from what they see. "To us, the arrows signify our dreams or visions. The two half circles on opposite ends of the card represent our goals. The random lines, edges, and points are all the obstacles that cross our path to try and thwart us from achieving our goals. The intricate filigree shows us that along our journey there is much beauty within the chaos." 



4. Aces, face cards, and jokers. "For our aces, we wanted to display powerful figures. Figures that embody the duality of our own thoughts. The aces in Visions symbolize the voices in our heads, both positive and negative. These aces are the driving thoughts and emotions brought to life in our court cards." 


The court cards to be unique. Something you don't normally see in a deck of cards. "What we came up with are twelve court cards that we are extremely proud of. In the Visions courts below you will see varying clothing styles, symbols, and races from which we drew our inspiration. We have double diptych jokers that bring the cards to life. They tell a story that will pull you in and have you relate to them." 



5. Add-ons and limited edition Collectors set. The campaign has a slew of addons like wooden cards, uncut sheets, gilded deck and coin. The collectors set is a limited set that has 3 gilded decks all gilded to match the colors of the card backs. It will be limited to 250 and only available upon its final stretch goal which is less than 5k away.

Deck starts at $16 on Kickstarter NOW.
