BumbleBee Playing Cards USPCC
This charming custom deck pays homage to one of the everyday creatures that makes our lives possible: the bumblebee. Bees are responsible for one in every three bites of food you take, pollinating everything from tomatoes to nuts to livestock feed. Yet these amazing workers are disappearing from our environment through Colony Collapse Disorder, threatening catastrophe.
From the gorgeously intricate card backs to the cheerful “bee rider” custom joker, apiarists and rare card collectors alike won’t be able to resist the endearing custom illustrations. In recognition of the bee’s vital role in our world, 10% of all profits from the decks’ sale will be donated to honey bee preservation through the International Union of for Conservation of Nature.
Wouldn't recommend for card tricks but they design is really fun. I like the classic feel and the pips really stand out on this deck.
Love the amount of customization in this deck, which pays tribute to the humble bumble bee. The card-backs feature a very intricate design on a faded and antique style background, while the Ace of Spades has a hive ready to go. I love the simple colour choices, and the somewhat vintage 1800s look is completely in keeping with the environmental theme of the deck. I especially appreciate the way that the pips have been done on the corners of the cards, with the spades in yellow highlighted against bumblebee black. The court cards also have a very earthy and unpolished look. But it's the indices that really makes fanning the card look beautiful. The red suits have indices with white pips against a red background, to distinguish them clearly from the black suits, ensuring good functionality. Both Jokers offer educational reminders about the vital role of bees as pollinators. Love it!
Smooth deck ever made! Beautiful!
Color and design makes you feel better while you're holding them. Awesome piece for collectors!
This deck is very stylish. Love the backs. I really like the primitive wood cut look of the court cards. The highlighted card index is also a nice difference.
