LUXURY FOR THE MODERN CARDICIAN. Over two years in the making, our first offering from the Mint Collection is the highly anticipated Launch Edition MINT Playing Cards. A modern approach to classic playing card design that radiates elegance, class, and luxury. Learn the secrets of the Mint design below. A MERGER OF FORM & FUNCTION We wanted to create a worker's deck. A pack of 52 cards that merges form with function. Using a classical approach to design, the goal was to develop a look that is familiar, but fresh. The elegant repeating pattern evokes the decks that have survived the test of time. After we established the look, we focused on the feel. The true mark of a card is how it handles. Mint is printed by the United States Playing Card Company on the highest quality card stock available. Each card coated is with the legendary Air Cushion Finish to provide for the smoothest spread, fans, and shuffles. Your hands deserve nothing but the best. FOR MAGICIANS, BY MAGICIANS Mint playing cards were developed from the ground up with practitioners of sleight of hand and illusion in mind. The custom design offers a modern, yet familiar look to classic playing card design. The back design features a groundbreaking marking system and each Mint deck includes several powerful gaff cards for magicians to take clever advantage of. FEATURES MODERN DESIGN The Mint design offers a graceful balance between modern and classic playing card design. It's a classy look while still coming across as a completely ordinary pack of cards.
