    I receive a few comments here and there about what inspires/inspired me during the design process. I hope this will be an interesting read for CTers.

    I was really skeptical of these cards when I first got them. I loved the overall design and thought the art, colors, and feel of the card was great. But I really disliked the non-standard pip placement. Believe it or not, I actually like playing the occasional hand when I don't know exactly what I have (i.e., two face cards, two four-acrosses that could be 99, TT, or 9T, or suited three-acrosses), so I was put off by the desjgn card. But after awhile, I completely abandoned that practice and came to love these cards. They look and feel great, and the color options are great: I got a black and pink color setup and they were very easy to differentiate. I have held a game with some old pre-USPC Kem cards and the two decks, although handling very well, were the same color. It made for some uncomfortable mixing and mishaps. In the end, I am very pleased I got the desjgn cards and look forward to seeing what else you guys come up with.

    BTW, thanks for becoming a sponsor, it is always nice to see companies support our site.

    Thank you for the comments. It is true that Desjgns were not everyone's cup of tea. I chose to do something different so that it wouldn't be that I was just another playing card company. I took all of the feedback in stride and found a happy marriage, I think, with the non-standard vs. standard pip placement with the release of the Classic Culture decks. However, it does take a little bit of warming up to the 7-10 cards' pip placements.

    I am glad to be a sponsor of this great site and interact with members like yourself on ChipTalk!
