Conjuring Arts is very proud to be helping to introduce a new era in quality playing cards.
For the last few years they have produced a great number of different decks and, in addition to creating new designs, they have consistently tweaked all aspects of the production. This has allowed them to produce some amazing decks and served to educate them on how cards are made. This has resulted in making playing cards that are better for magicians, sleight of hand artists and all others who rely on quality and consistency.
A few months ago Conjuring Arts partnered up with Lawrence Sullivan, a fine magician from Hong Kong, to produce a marvelous new deck. Lawrence commissioned Mark Stutzman, the brilliant illustrator and artist famous, in part, for his amazing work with David Blaine’s posters and decks of cards, to produce the new design called Legends. With Stutzman’s brilliant design and a new card factory in Taipei, Conjuring Arts is extremely excited to be able to offer Legends and to honestly say they are the beginning of the revolution on playing card quality.
These cards have a slip factor and snap factor that makes them perfect for flourishes, shuffle work, deals and more or less all types of sleight of hand. They are different from any other decks we’ve felt - neither like current USPCC products nor like old Jerry’s. They are really amazing. The factory they found produces primarily ultra high quality cards for far east casinos and hasn’t produced much previously in our sleight-of-hand sector. They are quite thin as well but strong and don’t feel "spongy” like many thin backs do. You will also notice that the white border is much narrower than "normal” cards from the US. This is due to extreme precision printing and finishing and due to this perfect registration the deck has an amazingly balanced appearance. These cards also have a glass like edge, like nothing anyone else has ever released (see image in comparison with a Bicycle deck).
The Legends run was quite short and split over 3 colors. Conjuring Arts is the exclusive sales agent for this deck in the US and we have only about 1,000 decks of each color as our allotment.
