For designers only: Poker cards redesigned with CMYK

The CYMK Playing Cards takes a traditional deck of playing cards and switches the suits for the print ink colors of cyan, magenta, yellow and black while swapping the numbers on each card with varying intensity of each colour. ‘The cards are just as useful as traditional printed styles, AND perhaps most importantly, all niche and only understood by people who are in our little design world,’ so said the description on the Kickstarter page. ‘We’ve tried explaining the cards to people outside the industry and were met with almost perfect poker face expressions’. Damn straight.
