(At the very last minute when we were filling your order, we realized this was the last deck on the shelf! We donned our hooded cloaks, said some magic incantations and sent our stealthiest editor to infiltrate the secret society of artisans to bring more back. We're expecting him to return around June 15th.)
Illustrated by Simon Frouws, the Artisan design is simply breathtaking, featuring elegant gold foil hot stamped onto ultra-lux white paper derived from sustainable forests. Pure, clean, and beautiful.
"The combination of gold foil and white embossing is extraordinary."
Artisans are featured in the May 2013 issue of Departures Magazine. David Copperfield called them "the best playing cards ever produced."
Artisan Playing Cards are produced at The United States Playing Card Company using FSC-certified papers derived from sustainable forests, vegetable-based inks and starch-based laminates. The result is a durable finish that respects the environment. Sealed with a red tax-stamp, vintage sticker seal marked with the exact month and year of print.
