Successor to the legendary Red Fontaine, Blue Fontaine by Zach Mueller were released in December 2013 off the back of the hugely successful Indiegogo campaign for his first deck of cards that brought with it requests for a new colour-way.
What started as just a back design has quickly grown into brand renowned for pushing the boundaries of cardistry, but did you know that Blue Fontaines cater for magicians too? Included with each deck is a blank face card and the tuck case has been designed especially for Zach Mueller and Michael Stern's concept, 'The Vintage Holdout'
Limited to 5,000 and printed on Bicycle Stock by The United States Playing Card Company on Linen Finish.
Founded by Zach Mueller in 2013 out of his love of old school casino decks like Wynns and Jerry's Nuggets, Fontaine was a 'just for fun' project that is making a huge impact on the world of playing cards.
What started with one prototype deck of Red Fontaine's, Mueller built a following by showcasing his skill as a magician on Instagram and Facebook. It didn't take long for demand for his product to build! (FYI - Red Fontaine's are now going on reseller sites like eBay for $200+!) By the time his second deck was released, Blue Fontaine, his following had grown to such an extent that the Kickstarter campaign raised over $60k. Realising this could become a full-time occupation, Zach has since narrowed his vision to pure cardistry and been featured in a number of viral videos, a commercial for Japan Airlines and has collaborated with some of the world's leading artists and designers.
Zach has built a brand that is renowned amongst card enthusiasts; constantly pushing the boundaries of cardistry and people's perception of playing cards, taking the art to new heights.
