Sakura Playing Cards by Francis Garcia is a limited-edition deck printed by USPCC.
Deck: Similar to the first edition of Sakura, the back design is specifically cherry blossom themed. It has an intricate design consisting of tree branch silhouettes that reach out from the edge of the cards, being parallel to each other. This specific use of tree branches is one of a kind.
Color: In our first edition of Sakura Playing Cards, we utilized different shades of pink, just like the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan during the Spring. Now, with our Winter theme edition, Sakura is to exhibit a chilly twist.
Sakura Playing Cards Winter Edition utilizes winter themed colors, such as blue, white, and shades of grey.
Deck Box: Similar to the first edition, but with a chilly twist. The box contains the same color as the back design, blue, white, and shades of grey. In the front of the box is a new design. Like the first edition, Mt. Fuji is still in the background, but the cherry blossom trees are all covered in snow. The red shrine is a symbolic monument in Japanese culture, representing the entrance to a sacred place.

The History: Sakura means Cherry Blossom in Japanese, which is a beautiful tree that resides in the land of Japan. BUT there is a deeper meaning to Sakura that YOU may not know about.
Sakura is a short-lived season in the spring. To me, it symbolizes living life to the best of your ability. To the samurai it meant mortality, because they did not know if they were going to die in battle the next day. Sakura is a lifestyle as well as my brand. Welcome to Sakura.
