These cards do look more interesting than the standard ESP deck.

A new special deck of ESP cards, {ESP}2. Designed for magicians and mentalists, the set of cards has a gorgeous vintage feel plus special hidden features!

Looks interesting, very tempted but Indiegogo has some really bad reviews (check out Trustpilot) anbody out there used Indiegogo before?

Also please note that this campaign is set up with a 'flexible goal,' meaning that the campaign will receive all funds raised even if it doesn't meet its goal. However Matteo Filippini has clarified on Facebook that he will print the cards regardless if he reaches his goal, but it is still something to consider before making a pledge.

Aside from that, I have a personal reservation about cards that are artificially aged. All the distressing is identical on each card, plus they'll all feel and handle like new cards despite the 'aging.'

Don't get me wrong; I like the look of the deck from a collector's standpoint, but I wouldn't use them in a performance.

Yeah, that aged/distressed background bugs me because it's repeated for every card, which will look jarring if you have more than one card displayed. Same for the back design it looks like.

Also, people always seem to go way overboard on texturing when it comes to making things look 'aged' digitally haha

Thanks Magic259 for recommending my ESP2 cards ...
The campaign has ended and of course I will ship all the decks to the supporters even if I didn’t reach the goal.
Yeah ... I understand the point of view about The ageing of cards ... but it’s a point of view Smile
I’m very proud of the cards and I think that the m*****g system is really simple and undetectable.
I’m thinking about re-launch the ESP cards on Kickstarter as many people don’t like the Indiegogo platform.
Cheers
Matteo
