Luxury for the Modern Cardician
Over two years in the making, our first offering from the Mint Collection is the highly anticipated Launch Edition MINT Playing Cards. A modern approach to classic playing card design that radiates elegance, class, and luxury.
Learn the secrets of the Mint design below.
A Merger of Form & Function
We wanted to create a worker’s deck. A pack of 52 cards that merges form with function. Using a classical approach to design, the goal was to develop a look that is familiar, but fresh. The elegant repeating pattern evokes the decks that have survived the test of time.After we established the look, we focused on the feel. The true mark of a card is how it handles. Mint is printed by the United States Playing Card Company on the highest quality card stock available. Each card coated is with the legendary Air Cushion Finish to provide for the smoothest spread, fans, and shuffles. Your hands deserve nothing but the best.
For Magicians, by Magicians
Mint playing cards were developed from the ground up with practitioners of sleight of hand and illusion in mind. The custom design offers a modern, yet familiar look to classic playing card design. The back design features a groundbreaking marking system and each Mint deck includes several powerful gaff cards for magicians to take clever advantage of.
The Mint design offers a graceful balance between modern and classic playing card design. It’s a classy look while still coming across as a completely ordinary pack of cards.
Groundbreaking Marking System
The Mint Marking system is incredibly subtle, yet easy to read. It’s based on a clock design so if you can read the time, you can read the Mint markings.
Traditionally Cut cards help facilitate faro shuffling and other card weaving techniques.
Premium Card Quality
Mint is printed by the US Playing Card Company on premium card stock and air cushion finish. The cards have that perfect snap and spread like butter. Higher quality cards do not exist.
Bonus Gaff Cards
Each Mint deck includes an extra double backer, and double facer card. These gaff cards can be incredibly powerful tools for the magician.
The extra thin white borders that frame Mint design help create more aesthetic spreads and fans.
The MINT Marking System
Mint playing cards are a tool; and like great magic, they hide their best kept secret in plain sight. An innovative marking system opens up and endless world of possibilities. The system is perfectly camouflaged by the Mint design and is dead simple to read if you know what to look for. If you can read a clock, you can read the Mint Marking System.
