People have been buzzing about our Honeybee decks since the first edition launched in 2015, selling out in a single day! Since then each new version of Honeybees has continued to sell out.

Bicycle Honeybees, aka Honeybee V3, are the best version yet of the Yellow & Black editions. For the first time since 2016, borderless versions of these colorways are available!

Designed by Randy Butterfield, Bicycle Honeybees feature the same beloved Honeycomb pattern as earlier decks. Our Honeybee mascot still walks on the backs but faces in a new direction for enhanced symmetry.

The faces are in a traditional style, with our timeless Beehive Ace of Spades and Beekeeper Jokers, plus a deeper high-roller red used for the Hearts and Diamonds. We've created a custom color scheme and background pattern on all of the court cards.

These cards handle like a DREAM. They are printed on US Playing Card's embossed Bee stock with their Grade-A "Magic" finish for ultimate fanning, spreading, durability, and longevity. They have also been traditionally cut (the blade goes through the face side) which makes table faro shuffles and other gambling moves significantly easier to accomplish.

We have even included 2 special gaffs in each deck, a double-backer and a blank-facer, which you can use for creative magic routines or as cut cards during your weekly poker game!

These gorgeous decks are available in Yellow and Black backs, with single-color 6-pack orders including a custom 6-pack box. Get yours today!

They’re back - awesome new design Report this review

PM Elite Grade A Bordered Honeycomb and black decks were my favourite deck type. I bought out remaining stock when low.

Great news there is this new borderless black design. Beautiful backs. Faces instantly recognisable to spectators so great for magic. But they also have beautiful colour enhancement to make them distinctive. No other card decks match these in handling or face and back design.

I also loved the red and blue elite honeybee decks, which feel similar to the new black decks reviewed. When these old ones were going out of print I bought as many remaining decks as possible.

I also bought severall in Stripper form - nice they are back. Not just great design and handling like PM enhanced Bee series but more precise for their purpose over rival Stripper decks.

PM black borderless repeating background makes an easy Bevel Count Get Ready for multiple lifts. Most other deck back designs show visible bulge close up under camera or mirror, but these make the sleight invisible. No problem of hands burnt, no misdirection required - peace of mind. But the quality of the reviewed deck and cousins makes any other moves easier.

I don’t mind the borderless versions for Multiple Lifts, even if you think borders are required. But judge them instead for looks and general handling and still a winner..

Design of new black borderless great for card collectors, not necessarily magic, but handling great for card magic too.

I hope these new black borderless decks become popular enough to warrant a return of borderless versions in various colours. Would be great to get extra gaff cards too, such as double coloured double backers for colour change or other magic effects.

Great Jokers. Same great distinctive design to fit the revamped Bee decks.

The deck reviewed is still worthy of full stars in current form. I appreciate their extra quality..

Can’t go wrong with these..

The playing cards feel like butter and ironically honey. So I think the name is appropriate and they are a traditional bee style playing card so I have thought about exploring the various special and wonderful things you can do with the style of playing cards. These were a gift from a loved one so I am in heaven.

I'd use them all the time if they weren't 10 bucks Report this review

These are great cards. I mostly prefer borderless cards and these feel great. Very flexible out of the box and a very nice finish. They feel as flexible as the thin crush stock but are a bit thicker than the Honeybee Elites, which is fine with me. I do like the design with the bees better than the plain back of the Honeybee Elites, as I think it's a little easier for spectators to follow while still making false deals deceptive.

Unfortunately I go through a lot of cards and $10 a deck isn't really sustainable so these will have to be more like special occasion cards. If they were like $6-7, I'd buy them by the brick.

Super Unique High Quality Report this review

I’ve been a fan of the Honeybee deck from previous versions and the this combine the best of my two favorite versions. Perfect card flex for faro shuffles and top and bottom deals right out of the box. The design is unique that it has style with face card patterns and beautiful Aces and Jokers, but subtle and not flashy. This is my performance deck if I ever get a gig.
