Playing Cards - Grateful Dead
Formed in 1965, the Grateful Dead became a cultural institution that has spanned over half a century. Fusing rock and roll, folk, and jazz with avant-garde, visual, and literary traditions - they became one of the most popular, enduring, and influential bands in American history.
The box packaging is printed using antique letterpress machines dating back to the 1960’s - with six layers of vibrant colour, embossed for a unique tactile sensation. The front face features the Skull & Roses at center, with custom composition surrounding.
The court cards are simply jaw-dropping. Continuing the use of iconic logos and mascots - bears, terrapins, and skeletons are prominently featured in vibrant detail. Every inch of the deck is fully custom, including the font style and design of each individual suit.
Every aspect of the cards is 100% made in America, using FSC-certified hemp fiber paper on the tuck case packaging. The cards are safely sealed within, with an ivory matte sticker seal featuring the Stealie skull.
