The standard Deco edition is SOLD OUT but a few special editions remain. Buy Now
Encarded's first two decks, Tendril and Aurum, explored a variety of new ideas in playing card design. Shadow borders, face patterns that are more than just texture, organic symmetry, purposeful imperfections, custom die cuts, laser cutting. Some of those features still don't exist on any other custom deck. Since each deck we design is nothing like the one before, we once again will take a 180 degree turn and the next deck from Encarded is simpler at first glance, but to those people that appreciate the finer things it's a Bicycle deck like you've never seen before.
Deco aims to tap into the mystique of casino-style decks of the past, with their boldly simple design, but bring the exceptional modern handling and finishes to the forefront. Deco also wanted to be visually simple from a distance but packed with subtle detail up close. All of this is packaged into a fully custom deck that is still familiar and perfectly playable, like all Bicycle decks.
