Intertype Studio created a limited-edition deck of playing cards as a tribute to the Kings and Queens of the NHS and other keyworkers, with all funds raised going to charity.
18 artists and illustrators contributed ideas that are representative of our gratitude to the COVID Heroes and Heroines.
The cards are printed on Casino quality stock by LNS print and are available to buy from @intertypestudio now (link in their bio). Limited edition run, only 190 decks are available at £25 each whilst 10 ‘gilt edged’ decks are available at £45 each with all money going to NHS Charities Together and Mind.
The pack was created with a complex combination of printing processes – Pre dyed card substrate was overprinted with blue and gold ink. The pack was then double hit screen printed in white, then foil blocked and embossed. Finally, the box is sealed with a laser-cut label printed in gold ink. Each pack was hand-assembled at LNS print.
