Phonograph 5

Unread postby lms_jam » Sat Feb 20, 2016 2:22 pm  

Hello everyone I am working on a deck of cards that I started 3 years ago. I had some ideas and started working on a card back and then I set it aside and finished 2 other decks. I just recently thought I would come back to the deck and I like where it is going so far. It is going to be called Phonograph 5. The colors are not official yet but pretty close here are some photos. I have several options for the card backs and would love to hear what you think.

I was thinking about doing a phonograph for the jokers one in color and one black and white.

I think you need to work on the scaling on the back design. Currently, it's off/different on each side.

I think a traditional joker ON a phonograph might be better than just a phonograph.

The design on the card back is at an angle.

Hello everyone here is an update on my next deck Phonograph 5 which I hope to launch on Kickstarter later this year. The court cards are inspired by my favorite deck made by Goodall. Any thoughts about the colors I was thinking about doing two decks one would be the red back and one would be blue back. I was thinking about going with EPCC this time and doing one of the decks as a limited 500 print deck with special features like maybe foil on the tuck I still need to talk to bill and get some ideas for the tuck material and anything else I wanted to do something different. Your suggestion would be much appreciated.

Like the courts! Yes the tuck needs work. Don't have the card back pattern be on the front. Bruno's idea a good one.

TGunitedcardists idea of Jokers on phonographs a great idea.

Is there Phonograph 1-4? If not, why use #5?

The court cards look nice. I'd like to see BLACK instead of blue for the letters and pips of clubs and spades.
