Founded in 2013 by a team that included Dan and Dave Buck, Andrew Gibbs and Alejandro Portela, DeckStarter® provided designers and playing card enthusiasts with a dedicated platform from which create their own decks of cards.
Supported by friends, fans and the public, DeckStarter® was the easiest way to get your own deck into the hands of cardicians all over the world. With the help of the community, crowd-funding saw seven original decks of playing cards born from DeckStarter® until January 2015, when the platform was sadly closed in order for the founders to focus on other projects (Art of Play!)
The deck features a borderless back design comprising diagonal stripes surrounding the brand's logo. Face and spot cards are modified in both colour and appearance but bear close resemblance to USPCC standard designs, making them great for both magic and cardistry!
Printed by The United States Playing Card Co. Once sold out, this exclusive deck will never be reprinted.
Twins brothers Dan and Dave Buck are perhaps best known for their contributions to the art of cardistry.
Masters of sleight of hand, the Buck twins have released a plethora of instructional videos and DVDs which not only led to the increase in popularity of cardistry, but also made them two of the most influential people in the magic and cardistry community.
In 2013, off the back of a becoming wildly successful producers of luxury playing cards, they founded Art of Play. Based in the United States, Art of Play curates a collection of wonderfully unique playing cards, puzzles, games and amusements.
Epiphanies await the curious mind.
