Origin - Cardistry Touch Playing Cards
The first deck crafted from scratch for cardistry.
Unique graphics for an enhanced cardistry experience. The ORIGIN cardistry deck is much more than just another deck of playing cards.
We started with a clean slate, and as cardists, we crafted our deck in our own image. During two years, we tested different papers, coatings and ways to cut cards. Worth it!
Clever, simple and elegant: meet the “SWIVEL BOX”. Make a statement by just opening the deck.
“How many cards do we need in a deck?” That is one of the many questions we asked ourselves when developing this product. Nothing was left to chance.
The Origin cardistry deck features a unique geometric design that will make your deck stand out from all others. A Single design is repeated on each card for an enhanced cardistry experience. So why is it better then all the other playing cards out there? Well, because they’re not playing cards anymore. With one single purpose, this object is now the perfect tool for cardistry.
We needed high-end techniques and top quality expertise to live up to the picture we had in mind. Our design is perfectly centered and the thin borders on the backs make a clear distinction between packets, for cleaner cuts and displays.
The deep colors and crisp contrasts, only possible with the latest technology in offset printing, really make the design pop out.
The Origin cards are designed with fanning in mind: different patterns come to life, rhythms and connections, depending on the way you fan.
The spinning motion is accentuated by the center piece of the design: the colors merge into a mesmerizing whirlpool, wrapping around the fixed blank spot in the center.
After 2 years of research and hard work in close collaboration with Cartamundi, we finally found what we were looking for.
Welcome to the future.
We chose a premium quality paper with a softer stock, for easier pressure moves right out of the box. Our cardboard is also whiter than our competitors’, so the deep colors of our design pop out even more.
We developed a new varnish designed for our art form: the “cardistry finish”. The cards feel broken in, right out of the box for a better fanning experience. We also care about the planet, so the varnish we use is environment friendly.
We used a brand new knife that was specifically forged for our deck. The edges will feel smoother and the design will have almost no offset, with a nearly perfect alignment.
Coolest. Box. Ever. No need to say more.
We challenged everything, even the number of cards that we use, and we discovered that an odd number of cards makes faro moves easier, as you can shuffle one half into the other while maintaining total control.
