Maker Spotlight - Theory11

Playing cards is one of those items that you don't think about going luxe for yourself. You might be at Target one day and it might just be the oh hey, maybe I'll just chuck this deck of cards into my cart, in between my cart next to my detergent, golden pasta spoon that you really don't need. Odds are those deck of cards are your typical Bicycle deck of cards in either red or blue and they are sold just about any and everywhere. 

If you know us, that's not our style. Thankfully we found Theory11 to fill our need for premium playing cards. Theory11 is the largest producer of luxury, designer playing cards. To date, we’ve designed and produced 78 unique playing card designs. Our goal in playing card design is simple: to push the envelope and create the most breathtaking, innovative, elegant designs.

I really had to practice self control when it came to deciding which designs to offer for our gifts. I chose a dark and a light becuase well, color schemes are everything when curating the right set of elements in a gift. I went with the NPH and Artisans. 

NPH as in Neil Patrick Harris was involved with the Art Direction for the design of this luxe deck of playing cards. NPH Playing Cards are elegant, intricate, and visually stunning. Every aspect was handcrafted with relentless, unrivaled attention to detail. For every purchase of NPH Playing Cards, $1 will go to (RED)’s fight against AIDS, which can provide more than 3 days of life-saving HIV medication. Every deck makes a difference. NPH Playing Cards feature a custom Ace of Spades, Joker, box design, and modified court card typography. Even the INSIDE of the box has a custom, elegant gold foil pattern by Jay Fletcher. As with everything, there's more than meets the eye - with secret symbolism within the deck. Look closely and you may discover much more.

Artisan Playing Cards: The White Edition are breathtaking, featuring elegant gold foil hot stamped onto ultra-lux white paper derived from sustainable forests. Pure, clean, and beautiful.

"The combination of gold foil and white embossing is extraordinary."

Artisans are featured in the May 2013 issue of Departures Magazine. David Copperfield called them "the best playing cards ever produced."With this new White Edition, we unveil a perfect complement to the original Black Edition.

Artisan Playing Cards are produced at The United States Playing Card Company using FSC-certified papers derived from sustainable forests, vegetable-based inks and starch-based laminates. The result is a durable finish that respects the environment. Sealed with a red tax-stamp sticker seal marked with the month and year of print.

We are pretty excited to feature Theory11 in our gifts. They offer a fabulous addition to any client gift, girls night gift, groomsmen grouping or Father's Day gift.
