Excellence in high quality card magic
Steve Brooks
Bursting into Flames!
Christian, It was great meeting you while I was in Las Vegas attending the World Magic Seminar. I believe you to be an honest and sincere person whos passion for the art can truly be seen and appreciated by the high quality magic products you have produced. Based on the reactions I saw in other magicians in Las Vegas, I believe your Phoenix Deck is now officially bursting into flames! With the birth of your Phoenix Deck magicians are no longer under the tyranny of the Bicycle brand. That being the case, any high quality gimmicked card can now be produced and used in everyday performances. Indeed, we are limited only by our own imaginations. Long live the Phoenix Deck!

About Us

Card-Shark is dedicated to provide the best playing cards and card effects for magicians worldwide. We invented the Phoenix Deck that is manufactured in the world's best playing card manufacturies worldwide. Because different deck types need different manufacturing processes, and as a single manufacturer can not provide all variations.

We are the only specialist that can serve any need of professional magicians, as we also print custom cards, from a single card up to complete deck runs. Card-Shark is a proud FISM partner, and the Phoenix Deck is the only deck worldwide that is FISM recognized. As a professional violinist you would love to play on a Stradivari, as a professional magician your first choice should be the Phoenix Deck.

We are a family business and love magic, hoping that our customers enjoy purchasing our products from a small but friendly team. If you have any suggestions or comments please email us at .
