The Blue Crown: Nautical Playing Cards

30 Aug

Nautical playing cards are produced by The Blue Crown in 2013. The deck was designed by Edo Huang. It is reminiscent of a classic bordered Bee design. Everything about the deck is inspired by the sea. From the rope-like pattern & life preservers integrated into the back design, to the rope border on the court cards, and the ship joker.

The Nautical Deck has been created in Red, Blue and White (limited edition) backs. Playing cards are printed on a thin, flexible, and durable stock that’s manufactured and hand-finished in Shanghai. They have an embossed texture (finish). Tuck cases have custom seals.

The White version of the deck has a different tuck box design and different designs for the Aces. There were printed fewer than 2,000 White decks.
