In collaboration with Mark Hoppus and his apparel company Hi My Name is Mark we present to you our latest project, HMNIM Playing Cards. Using Mark's trademark Octopus logo we worked with an award winning team of illustrators to create this truly unique deck of cards with a nautical theme. A process that took nearly a year to complete, no detail was left out and no expense was spared.
The tuck case was printed on imported matte paper inside and out using a variety of techniques not normal on your average playing card box. The outside was embossed with a uv coating to create the same kind of shimmer you might see reflecting off the ocean. The nautical map on the inside might not lead you to gold but the didn't stop us from printing it in gold! Additionally, each deck is sealed with a gold foil stamp... and that's only the box!
The playing cards were printed by the US Playing Card Co. under our control for unmatched quality in the industry. Never has a deck handled so well!
The court cards (jacks, queens, kings, and aces) were redrawn and offset with a metallic gold ink that glisten in the light. The rest of the cards are no ordinary gem, those too are completely original because when producing a deck for Mark Hoppus, nothing is ordinary.
