As a professional magician DJT was focused on creating moments of wonder that would forever be remembered. DJT resisted the urge to use certain brands of cards because they looked suspect or were over the top in design and henceforth aroused suspicion. He pondered, "What If I could create a deck that had a classic look? What if, once I removed the box from my pocket, the audience knew they were about to see something special?" He has done that with the new Diamond Playing Cards.
The box is black with a matte finish and arouses intrigue. The mysterious Celtic Diamond conjures up an old world feel and is raised and printed in a silver foil ink. The almost hidden black on black ambigram that reads 'diamond' hints that there are surprises to come. The stylistic metallic seal completes the presentation. The box suggests high quality.
The cards are printed on USPCC's finest stock with an air-cushioned finish. The faces of the cards are standard, so things look familiar to spectators, and they are easy to read. The Aces are custom with large pips and continue the mysterious Celtic theme. A blank faced card and a double-backed card are included for various magic routines. A subtle one-way element has been added to make locating a selection simple.
The best part is hidden in plain sight. There is an easy to read marking system for each card. Once knowing how to read the camouflaged marks, you'll be able to do so from a couple of feet away. Left handed card players will appreciate the markings are in all four corners. There was a lot of time and energy put into this project. Award-winning designer Phill Smith from the UK and DJT collaborated to create this beautifully designed tool. Diamond Playing Cards will turn heads and allow card workers to perform miracles.
Look and feel of these cards is top notch
The exceedingly fine celtic diamond back design, jokers, and custom aces have a remarkable perfection and beauty. As an eminently usable 'standard' deck this one is exceptional. However, its ingenious, highly readable, marking system really puts this deck way over the top. A+.
Undectable marking system, great deck of cards to handle
The feel of these cards is awesome and the marking system is even better. They look and feel like a regular playing deck. I definitely plan on getting more of these.
Legible and easy to distinguish! I've already done a few "card reading" tricks which my friend or the person literally grabs the card and starts examining the card questioning how I did that and they count not find the solution. Easy to say, its magic! Great deck of cards and the Attractive backing is a plus!
