Butterfly Playing Cards are back, combining the highest manufacturing quality with the pinnacle of luxurious design.
WHERE DO BUTTERFLIES COME FROM?
Hello, My name is Ondrej Psenicka. I am from the Czech Republic and I ve been doing magic for over 20 years, the past eight of which I spent developing a very special deck of playing cards.
The original Butterfly Playing Cards (Red and Blue) were created back in December 2016 with a crowdfunding campaign which raised $59,097 and sold 14,000 decks.
The second (privately-funded) edition which was released a year later, together with the selling of refill decks, took that figure up to 30,000.
And now I have something truly wonderful for you.
The Butterfly Playing Cards Black series design is based on the original artwork by magician and artist Stefan Eriksson.
New materials and special effects give these luxurious Black editions a sense of glamor and sumptuousness that will ease effortlessly into your home or office decor.
In the Butterfly Playing Cards, you’ll find the familiarity of your favorite US card faces, mixed with a unique shimmering detail on the court, joker, and ace cards.
Nothing short of stunning, all court faces are graced with gold or silver foil detail, adding a sense of regality to their presence.
The aces reflect their gorgeous back design, and the master of them all, the ace of spades, presides over them, glistening in golden/silver understated elegance.
No compromise on quality
Every detail of the Butterfly Playing Cards is of the highest quality available, with no compromise taken at any stage of manufacture.
Are printed by Cartamundi at their Turnhout headquarters, the only factory in the world with the technology and strict quality control to absolutely guarantee 0,5 mm registration in cutting. Of the 35,000 Butterfly decks printed there, there has not been a single claim over miscut or misprinted decks. Zero.
So not only will the cards are centered and symmetrical to please even the most discerning eye, but they feature the widely praised True Linen B9 finish and exquisite gilding.
Gilding with a difference
A gilt card is a beautiful card. But it’s well known that gilding interferes with how cards feel and the smoothness of fanning.
With the help of Cartamundi, the gilding work will not only protect the quality of the cards, but will enhance the pack’s magical features, and defend against humidity and hand moisture that so often weaken un-gilt cards along their vulnerable edges.
A deck this stunning would be wasted if it didn’t come with the option of having devilishly clever concealed magic markings in its design. The marked Butterfly deck will empower you to perform miracles not possible with any other deck of cards in the world.
The Faro shuffling technique requires two things: skill and well-cut cards.
Gilding often makes Faro more difficult to execute… Not with the Butterfly Playing Cards! The superior finishing technology of the gild is faro-friendly!
The Butterfly Playing Cards brand is about precision, quality, and innovation; technologically, magically, and now also environmentally.
The playing card industry produces an incredible amount of plastic waste. To be part of the change we want to see in the world, the Butterfly Playing Cards Black series won t be wrapped in cellophane as almost all playing cards are.
Instead, all card cases will be sealed with a paper seal and contained in a paper sleeve that not only protects the card case, but the environment too.
