CRAFTED
FROM SCRATCH
FOR CARDISTRY

Our cardistry cards project was much more than just a new design for a deck of cards.
We needed to create a new quality, from scratch, specifically for cardistry. Obviously,
we couldn’t do that on our own since we didn’t have the resources or the expertise.
We knew that the major card companies would never take the time and effort to work
on such a project… until Cartamundi found us.
The relation that we have with Cartamundi is much more than a client-supplier relation. It’s an actual collaboration. They were the only card company to believe in our project, and decided to make it a reality, notwithstanding how ambitious it was. It took 2 years of research & development, lots of trial and error, but we wouldn’t have it any other way: our product was 100% what we had in mind and we couldn’t be more proud of this collaboration. 

UNIQUE GRAPHICS

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.

PRECISION

We needed high-end techniques and top quality expertise to live up to 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.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

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.

THE PAPER

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.

THE COATING

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.

THE CUTTING

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.

THE SWIVELBOX

Coolest. Box. Ever. No need to say more.

51 cards

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.
