I would like to do a custom deck of playing cards. I have some different theme ideas but would like to do something that plays to the strength and style of the artist, based on their portfolio.
I want to stay within a budget of 1000 - 1500 usd. I am willing to have less customization to stay within budget. At a minimum I need a custom back, tuck and ace, but would really love custom courts and pips as well. Printing to be done thru USPCC with a planned run of 1,000. I would want exclusivity of the art for the playing card decks and related items indefinitely but otherwise the artist can retain the rights for other uses.
Timeline is flexible, not a rush job. My long term goal is to find an artist I can work with to release several new playing card decks a year.
Would prefer to contract with someone who has designed a deck before or who is very enthusiastic to take on the task.
