For long time I had the idea to create a deck dedicated gladiators. The turning point was the trip to Switzerland in 2019, where during a gloomy and rainy day I accidentally found the museum with an exhibition of gladiatorial armor. I am a big fan of Ridley Scott’s films, and one of my favorite – the Gladiator. This exhibition in Switzerland impressed me so much that I started working on the deck dedicated to these strong and courageous men.
These decks will not be glamorous as the idea was to create a design that would reflect harsh reality of those difficult days and the strength of spirit of those brave warriors. The restrained and dark colors of the boxes, and the small accent on the foils, symbolize short and instantaneous eruption of glory at the peak of life and the brink of death.
Everyone decides either to leave with honor, or to stain oneself with blood and shame. Eventually, the same thing awaits all of us – the death. It smiles at us, and all we have to do is to smile back.
Main features: Cards printed by EPCC. Limited to 1000, Gold foil and embossing on the tuck box, Custom Tuck Box, cards and back, Metallic inks on backs, Custom numbered seals, Linen Finish and Classic Paper
In this new project, we decided to create a new kind of pledge, which so far no one has offered. We decided to create the world’s first crypto card, which can be purchased on Kickstarter.
What is the point, you ask? This is a completely new era of collecting, because now you can not only buy a crypto art, but also sell it legally! If you have already heard about this kind of art, you understand what profits you can make by selling collectibles on NFT platforms.
We created a crypto pledge, and it is one of the aces of our deck. It has a three-dimensional format and an animated structure. You can purchase it in this project, and we’ll send it to you at the end of the campaign. In addition to this crypto card, you will receive a large JPEG format of this card, which you can print for yourself.
However, to receive crypto card, you will need a special crypto wallet. We will send your crypto card from the Rarible website and you will need the MetaMask wallet, which is one of the most common crypto currency wallets in the world.
This is our first deck to be printed by EPCC and fulfilled by Gamblers Warehouse. We have a number of fulfilled projects and know the inside side of all the proceses from creating to fulfillment. During these hard days of COVID-19 quarantine, we realize that there are a lot of risks related to production delays, shipping and sourcing issues. But there is nothing more important for us than getting your rewards delivered on time and as advertised. Colors and the final design may vary from those you see on your screens.
