ABOUT THIS DECK
RAVN is back, in purple! A custom-designed deck of poker size playing cards designed by Stockholm17 for Caroline Ravn magician. They teamed up to deliver an elegant and classic looking deck of playing cards, with improved courts and standard faces. Perfect to perform magic tricks, cardistry, and of course to play at the green table.
The deck is printed by Cartamundi on a special paper stock with specific 9C² varnish designed for better handling and durability.
In 2016 Cartamundi manufactured a special deck that was presented at the Cardistry-Con, in Berlin. They focused on the paper and the varnish, not just the graphics. Cartamundi is providing this amazing paper stock and finish that is smooth and durable, specifically designed for cardists.
