In 2011, Theory 11 released the original Monarchs. They quickly became our best-selling deck, and has since then, defined a new standard for luxury playing cards. This year, they’re back; and this time, dressed in red.
Red Monarchs are Made in the USA on FSC-certified paper derived from sustainable forests.
Printed on Q1 quality stock with our signature Premium 909 Finish.
“The feel is simply incredible.”
Changing the color was only step one.
We spent time refining the world’s finest deck. It turned out better than we could ever imagine. We treated the back design with a vibrant and dramatic shade of red. We upgraded the box, introducing the highest quality paper ever used on a deck of cards. This luxurious new paper gives the tuck a rich, matte finish — incredibly soft to the touch. We printed the cards on Q1 quality paper, with ultra-thin borders, first introduced on our Animal Kingdom Playing Cards.
Snakes twist around an evolution of sword and tree. Guiding the edges are the words
“de duobus malis, minus est semper eligendum.”
