Hrmmmm....Most of the kickstarters actually use Bike stock. Bike stock is not bad. It isn't great though. If you want a unique kick starter and want to offer something different you might try contacting some other manufacturers. I bet you will financially have to come back to USPCC but it is at least worth the effort. Look into Carta-mundi and Piatnik. They may be cost prohibitive because they are smaller manufacturers but the quality of the stock they use is much higher.
If you get stuck with USPCC then the difference in Bee or Bike stock really comes down to how stiff you want the cards to flex. Bicycle is medium stiffness and Bee is a bit softer. Thus, bikes tend to be preferred by magicians who do walk around card magic whereas bee's are favored buy guys who rely on precise shuffle work on a table, such as a gambler or a magician doing a gambling demo. So think about the type of person you are marketing the deck to and choose from there.
Design wise....I really like it. That said, there are a lot of Asian themed decks. What I have yet to see is a face card set up that reflects real kings queens and generals from Asia. I have a "Wild West" deck and each of the court cards are patterned off of some famous wild west figure. So the King of clubs is Wyatt Erp, Queen of clubs is Calamity Jane, the Jack of Diamonds is Jonny Ringo, etc. So a Korean example might be King Sea Jong, Lee Soon Shin, ect. Have you thought of doing something like that?
Thanks for the great feedback! I think ill use the bike stock since more magicians tend to get the decks.
As for the designated kings and queens, they are actual kings and queens!!! Should I name them or maybe make a small booklet and talk about the history to go with the rewards? that would be a bit interesting.
heres latest queen...tell me wat you guys think
