They quickly became a best-selling deck, and they ushered in a new standard for luxury playing cards. Soon after, they are back dressed in red and in a new print edition, with a much more vivid, vibrant red box. Red Monarchs are Made in the USA on FSC-certified paper derived from sustainable forests. Printed on Q1 quality stock with our signature Premium 909 Finish. "The feel is simply incredible." New & Improved INCREDIBLY RICH PAPER & INKS Time was spend refining the world's finest deck. It turned out better than anyone could ever imagine. The back design has been treated with a vibrant, dramatic shade of red. For the tuck case, an existing soft-touch paper was taken and then darkened the tone while maintaining the vibrance of the red color. Snakes twist around an evolution of sword and tree. Guiding the edges are the words "de duobus malis, minus est semper eligendum."
