Start Your Engines! Check Out RPM Playing Cards on Kickstarter

RPM is a sleek new deck by Doc's Playing Card Co. and Luke Wadey currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. The campaign features two car-themed decks, available in light and dark versions with additional upgrades to the tuck and gilded versions also being available. The project was funded in just over 24 hours of launch last week! 


These decks focus on a car theme and embrace intricate pattern work and typography as we have come to expect from any of Luke's decks. The origin of these decks came from Luke's ambition to be a car designer for most of his life, even studying it at university before switching to graphic design. The decks focus on use for cardistry, their strength lying in bold fans, and designed for rotation. 


The decks have several different features that will make them unique to your collection; The dark variant uses a full bleed design, contrasting reds and blacks combined with typography, and is themed around an alloy wheel. All the cards are black and fully custom, also including a flipbook effect showing the value of each card, inspired by an RPM meter on a car dashboard. Brilliant! 

The white deck variant combines both metallic and CMYK inks in a totally different design, aiming to contrast the black decks, a pair of street racers. Again using a flipbook effect on the faces, the semi-border design is based around a car brake disk and combines pattern work and typography once more to draw your eye during flourishes.

Both decks are 100% custom with modified courts and jokers, hand-drawn by Luke. Here are all the decks available during the RPM campaign: Black Edition, Onyx Edition, Onyx Gilded Edition, White Edition, Drift Edition, Drift Gilded Edition 

Also, the limited collector packages come with numbered seals on the main decks as well as limited numbered half brick boxes. Printed by the USPCC and pledge starts at $15 on Kickstarter.
