Twelfth in the family of Fontaine playing cards and inspired by a Red Fontaine uncut sheet that had been sat in the sun for five years, Watermelons follow classic Fontaine design but are recoloured in a shade that sits somewhere between the Red and Pink editions.
Watermelons feature Bicycle standard face and spot cards, with a blank face and authenticity card included with each deck.
Limited to 2,500 and printed by The United States Playing Card Company.
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.
