Update

We made it everybody!  We are so proud to say that we funded 109% on Kickstarter!  We are working now on production, and are talking with the United States Playing Card Company on getting our cards printed and shipped as fast as possible.  We sold around 700 decks through Kickstarter, but we are now offering a pre-order on our website for those who missed the Kickstarter and still want ARX cards.  We are so excited to get the cards into the hands of all of our loyal customers and fans, and we'll update weekly with our progress.

Stay Tuned!

ARX Playing Cards

Around 2 years ago, Charles Grass, a magician based in northern Virginia, decided to chase his dream of creating a unique custom deck of playing cards.  He turned to his good friend, graphic designer and photographer Vincent Ferraro, for help with the design, and the two got to work.

After several stages of design, countless sleepless nights of work, and unrelenting effort, the duo are proud to announce the ARX Deck.

This unique design came about when Vinny stumbled upon a secret method to digital art creation when messing around in Photoshop.  His digital art portfolio can be seen here on his Instagram.

After Charles saw his designs, one in particular stood out, a snowflake in the style of stained glass.  The team knew it would be perfect.  After various tweaks to the design, the card back was complete.

For the face design, Charles knew it would be necessary to pay homage to the classical designs, with a bit of modern flair.  Vinny designed pips for each suit, and created artistic designs for the court cards that are unique but familiar.

The cards are done, the prototypes have been created, and now there's only one step left: The Kickstarter. 

We are going to launch very soon

Get ready

The ARX Deck is coming
