In Autumn 2022, we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for a new series of Butterfly Playing Cards, the Workers Edition. The classic Butterfly design is now surrounded by a white border.
Thanks to their versatility, bordered playing cards are still the main choice among magicians. They work great in sandwich and triumph effects and help conceal multiple card turnovers.
We wanted to print Butterfly Playing Cards with the United States Playing Cards Company for a long time. The Butterfly Workers created the perfect opportunity for it.
We went with what we consider to be the best USPC stock – crushed premium stock. It gives the cards a great mix of stiffness, pliability, and durability.
The faces feature a classic USPC design with an adjusted color scheme and are one-way. All four Aces carry big center floral pips.
The USPC Butterfly Workers faro from the faces to the back.
Every Butterfly Workers deck comes with an instructional card and a link to a 30-minute tutorial. It explains the marking system and offers ideas for tricks with marked cards. Every deck also includes a double-backer.
There were 1.250 decks printed of both Orange and Pink Butterfly Workers.
