DeckStarter - Custom Playing Cards

DeckStarter launched in 2013 with a mission to offer a dedicated funding platform for custom designed playing cards. Supported by friends, fans and the public, it was the easiest way to get your own deck into the hands of playing card enthusiasts all over the world.

With your help, we successfully funded 7 original decks of playing cards.

In January 2015 we decided to close DeckStarter in order to focus our attention on other projects.
