Dan and Dave
Twin Brothers and business partners Dan and Dave we raised in Northern California where they spent most of their childhood practicing the art of sleight of hand. In their teens, they pioneered the art of cardistry and helped create an international movement and one of the most exciting and growing skill arts today. In 2013 the twins founded Art of Play.
Kodiak playing cards are a tribute to the last frontier, honoring adventure and the great outdoors. Designed by Think Bold Studio in collaboration with Dan and Dave.
Inspired by the brothers' affinity for Kodiak, Alaska, they drew inspiration from one of their favorite decks, ‘Outing Playing Cards’ by Andrew Dougherty, ca 1895, and packaged them in a box reminiscent of old fairy tale books. Although they honor a personal connection with Kodiak, we hope they might inspire your own call to the wild.
Printed by The United States Playing Cards Company on a thin-crushed stock. Features include a custom ace of spades, jokers, and subtle modifications to the face cards. The box is stamped with gold foil and embossed, completing a distinguished look and feel.
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
