The Fourth Edition Orbit deck is setting all new standards and going places the Orbit brand has never gone before. Many things have evolved and as always plenty of time and dedication was put into the project. The Orbit deck was originally crowd funded on Kickstarter back in 2015, the second edition came out in 2016, the third in mid 2017, and the Fourth here in late 2017. From here on in there will be 2 Orbit deck releases each year until 2020 when we reach our 10th and final edition. Each edition along the way will be it’s very own unique design and feel because each edition should bring something more than simply another color. There were 7500 third edition Orbits printed and we sold out in 23 days. This time around we printed 23,000 because we don’t care about breaking sales records or selling out in one hour, we care about everybody getting a chance to own these so they can complete their Orbit deck collection. Our customer base has grown exponentially and we think we are ready for the expansion of volume with our 23,000 decks weighing in at a little over 2 and half tons. Recently a lot of decks have been printed in short supply and higher price. We believe $12 is a very reasonable price for a deck of custom playing cards.
Design has always been an important aspect for the Orbit brand. If you notice, the first three Orbit decks had very little other designs competing with the bold central O symbol. This time around we decided to change that and bring a new design that would share the spotlight at a glance from afar. After speaking with Daniel Schneider (The 3rd edition Orbit deck, Orbit Joker, Ace of Spades graphic artist) about a dream I had with the solid white lines coming from the white border onto the back design itself along with the star field he said, “Let me give it a shot.” He then made this design, we went through only a couple renditions before he nailed it. I knew it was ready. I knew I wanted to see an Orbital path when the cards were fanned or spread. The borders were made a bit thinner than before to ensure the white shuttle line was noticeable in the spread. The black and white combo makes this deck a visual treat that will be hard to top. Daniel Schneider himself even said “It’s going to be hard to top this.” This deck just like the other Orbits feature the same duplicate jokers, double backer, and a duplicate 8 of spades. Don’t think I forgot about the one way design. It’s there, even harder to find than before in my opinion.
