A Dream Come True!
Thanks to your excellent custom cards, I am now able to perform my favorite packet effect using vintage, heirloom cards. The quality and craftmanship of these cards are beyond compare; Christian showed great creativity and attention to detail in making my idea a reality. I have always wanted to perform certain effects with alternative cards or variations -- this has opened a world of new opportunities. I'm already planning my next order!

Card Quality Comparison

The strength of the Phoenix Decks is, that we can produce this deck at the best playinc card companies around the globe without having the problem to change the look of the cards at all. The complete design is created and owned by Card-Shark. The card stock and the print is so identical that you can even mix for instance the Phoenix Master cards with the Phoenix Traditional cards. To differentiate the several versions of the Phoenix Deck we used the Ace of Spades to add this information for you without giving away any secrets to your audience.

Below the Ace of Spades center pip you can find the following text:

Phoenix Master: "Master Edition"
Phoenix Traditional: "Traditional Edition"
Phoenix Parlour: "Parlour Edition"
Phoenix Double-Decker: first "Master Edition", now "Traditional Edition"
Phoenix Parlour Double-Decker: "Parlour Edition"
