The Command Zone podcast has been bringing you top quality Magic: the Gathering content for over two years now, and we are incredibly excited to announce the production of our very first PLAYMAT for all your tabletop gaming needs.
We commissioned a custom art piece for our playmat from the very talented artist Jesse Aronson. "Aftermath" depicts what is left on the battlefield after a long and arduous battle. Filled with easter eggs and adorned with amazing art, this play mat will only be on sale for the duration of this Kickstarter campaign. After the campaign ends, you will never be able to purchase this design again!
This playmat is the standard size of 24" X 13-1/2" and is printed with a high quality surface with a rubber backing by UltraPro.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please send us a message online via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Twitter: @commandcast.
Thank you so much! See you on the battlefield!
Risks and challenges
Going into this project, we knew that our viewers and listeners of the show deserved a unique and awesome piece of art. Something on the same caliber of quality that you wouldn't be surprised to see on a Magic card. We approached several artists before deciding to commission Jesse Aronson, a wildly talented painter who had played Magic growing up.
We went through over 8 revisions in the span of several months to get the playmat to its final version that you see today. Jesse and we incredibly proud of the piece and we can't wait to share it with the world. You can find more of Jesse Aronson's art at http://www.foundereffect.com
Now that the design was complete, the next hurdle was in manufacturing and distribution of our playmats. We knew we would have to most likely ship each one individually by hand around the world, but we would have to go to a professional for the highest quality print.
After meeting with a few manufacturers, the choice was clear - in order to print our playmats on top quality product with the highest resolution and color depth, UltraPro was the company best suited for our needs. UltraPro has a long and proven history of manufacturing playmats for Magic: the Gathering and numerous other franchises.
These high quality playmats utilize premium fabric and rubber backings. Each playmat will feature the Ultra Pro name on the top right of the playmats in a light grey semi-transparent font.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
