UPDATE 11th May
I am delighted and AMAZED to say we raised over 1600 for charity!
UPDATE 9th May
Just a quick Giallo deck update, the cards are now SHIPPING, and we expect all orders to have been posted by this Wednesday (11th)!
Thanks for your patience, as you all know this was a pre order, that way we could maximise the profits going to the charity by minimising waste, and we sold 385 decks, which is about 285 more than we ever thought!
For those of you in the UK, the cards should be with you by the end of the week, with the overseas orders arriving next week or the week after I expect.
At the end of the week will also announce how much we have raised, you can find out here, or via twitter – @cultzilla_UK or our facebook page
UPDATE 26th April
Delighted to say, the playing cards are ordered and will be with me next week some time, at which point I will post them out.
I am overwhelmed to say we have sold 385 decks! This will raise a serious sum of money for charity, and once we have posted everyting out and worked out the exact costs, I will update this page with the amount.
So THANKS for ordering, and more importantly promoting and sharing, tweeting etc.
385 decks sold, just by word of mouth from a great community!
I am really proud to offer this set of giallo themed playing cards for sale. This is not strictly a Cultzilla product, this is a charity project I designed with support and advice from some twitter friends, @rachael_nisbet, @GiornataNera and @SignorWardh. No one is taking any profit from it, so all profits will go to the charities listed below. We discussed and debated who should be included, and they were a great sounding board whilst I designed the deck. Particular thanks to @SignorWardh, who scanned in numerous locandinas from his astonishing collection, much of the quality and variety of locandinas used on the cards is thanks to him.
You can keep up to date with the latest updates and info on the deck at:
The cards are lovely quality, with a custom box and as this is a limited run, each one will be numbered.
The point cards are all posters / locas from giallo films and the Aces, weapons.
Knaves are Testi, Sorel, Rassimov and Hilton, Queens are Fenech, Strindberg, Bolkan and Bouchet, whilst the Kings are Bava, Argento, Martino and Fulci. You will also recognise the Joker!
The box is a custom design with the title ‘Cinquanta due carte all’ombra di giallo!’
The pre order will remain open until 24th April, then I will order the decks, each one will be numbered and there will be no more print runs, so this is definitely a one off project, so if you want a deck, make sure you preorder it. I would expect to send out the decks at the beginning of May.
The reason for the pre order is simple, we want to maximise the amount of money available for the charity. The more we make, the more we can donate. But as I said, there will only be one print run!
The charities we are donating to are (we will be donating all profits):
The decks are priced at £12.50 each plus postage. Which is as follows.
USA / Canada / Australia. £6
Europe £4 (this seems OK for most European countries, but drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can confirm the price)
Anywhere else, drop me a line!
Please use the order system below as I don’t want this all mixed in with the Cultzilla orders!
ORDERS HAVE NOW CLOSED.
