This Limited Edition is the celebration of 5 years as a brand! Joker and the Thief received funding for its first project on Kickstarter in 2015. The Midnight Blue Edition was the beginning, and this version is a celebration of that original design - 5 years on.

We poured our hearts and souls into the brand and have produced some spectacular designs since our first crowdfunding campaign. We decided to produce a Special Edition of the original Joker and the Thief design before moving onto new projects.

A limited edition, only 1500 decks will ever exist.

Rare and exclusive. When they're gone, they are gone forever. 

Edition 5 features elegant holly green Pantone inks, complimented by deep red inks and rich copper metallic inks.

Expertly crafted by our letterpress studio based in Southern California, the tuck box is easily the best in the series. It features for the first time, heavy embossing coupled with distinct satin copper foil - adding unparalleled dimension to this design that past versions weren’t aren't able to match.

Printed in the U.S.A. on Crushed Performance Stock and Linen Glide Finish for superb handling and unrivalled durability. Printed with environmentally safe ink on sustainably sourced paper.

Our Crushed Performance stock begins life as two sheets of FSC-Certified paper. They are passed through a press with a black glue core sticking them together. We specify a higher pressure than normal during this process. This results in a remarkably thin stock with superior handling, while retaining the durability our decks are known for.

the finishing touch

We utilise a special finish on the surface of our cards. It is applied to the paper's surface by linen rollers, creating dimples that form air pockets between each card. This allows your playing cards to glide and spread with absolute ease. 

Each deck features a security seal, so that you know your cards have not been tampered with. Our seals are perforated, providing an easy way to open your new deck and preserve the seal's art without the need for sharp objects.


All of our decks feature Anti-Cheat Glue Core Technology. Sandwiched between each card is a black glue, fusing both sheets of FSC-Certified Paper that forms our stock. This is a security feature that ensures any one card remains opaque when held up to bright light. Fair Play!
