Each batch is illustrated by an invited Artist. The Artist will make 3 graphics, 2 of them for sale and one for events. The Artist will change every two months. Each deck/card/cork box is branded with the initials of the Artist responsible for the illustration (for exp. Marta Azevedo = MA) followed by the number of the graphic (1 of 15). Since it is a limited edition brand, there are only 15 decks per graphic, each one of them has engraved the correspondent serial number.
The middle ply’s are dyed with actual wine!! The graphics are hand-made and screen printed BEFORE going to the mold (making the sanding process more of a precise challenge). Every deck is laser cut for a consistent shape. With an estimated 45 minutes of attention and finishing touches to getting such perfectly round edges."
