      Once actual printing begins surveys will go out. Should be another two weeks they told me : D

    11. Creator Raffy Longno on May 2, 2012

      When are the surveys gonna take place? Or did I miss them?

    12. Creator Sean Whelan on April 18, 2012

      Sure! I just got this response back from uspcc: "Hi Sean,
      Your files came in fine and I don’t see any problems with the artwork. I'm going to go over the artwork with prepress and I will let you know if I have any questions shortly. Thank you!!"

      So when its time to give out the survey one of the wuestions will be: Would you like a deck signed? Simply select yes or no. This way everyone will get a chance for a signed deck

    13. Creator Alvin Tan on April 18, 2012

      Hi Sean, will you please sign one of my decks for me?

    14. Creator Matthew Hinz on April 5, 2012

      sucks it didn't hit the mark for metallic ink. Oh well. Maybe on a future deck.

    15. Creator Esther Park on April 5, 2012

    18. Creator Rajas Paranjpe on April 1, 2012

      Congrats Sean, a signed deck would be awesome!

    19. Creator Eli Schifman on March 30, 2012

      Hey Sean will you sign one of the decks for me?

    20. Creator Sean Whelan on March 29, 2012

      How many people would jump at the chance to purchase a set of printing plates? At what cost?

    21. Creator Sean Whelan on March 26, 2012

      10 days to go! Please share this on your facebook page and let everyone know! So close to goal theres no way I'm giving up now!! : D

    22. Creator Sean Whelan on March 22, 2012

      @Mike: I posted on various forums to try and promote this deck but not steampunk. I'll have to look into that thanks for the advice : D

    23. Creator Mike B on March 22, 2012

      @Sean - have you tried to reach out to steampunk related websites and blogs? I tried posting the link to this kickstarter on the facebook page of the GirlGenius webcomic, and also sent it out to lots of friends, but as the artist, you might do better than just a fan.

    24. Creator Mike B on March 20, 2012

      @Krystal - if it's still a problem send me a message on here - I'll save the .jpeg files and email them to you (note, I am not in any way, shape, or form affiliated with Sean other than being a backer for this project who is *really* hoping it meets its goal so I can get packs of these cards for an event I'm involved with later this year!)

    25. Creator Sean Whelan on March 20, 2012

      Hey everyone! 15 more days : D I'm so excited to see where this project goes! I appreciate everyone's feedback in regards to the designs to lets make it happen!

    26. Creator Sean Whelan on March 20, 2012

      Thanks David for your advance but again i know what I'm doing and for those using IE again...upgrade. David please do not keep posting about this or I will report you as spam. Lets move on from this topic...

    27. Creator David Elliott on March 20, 2012

      Go to the Project Home tab, right click the page and do a View Source. Go to line 305. This is not easy to read because it's all on one line, so you may want to turn on the Wrap Long Lines mode in the View menu. If you look at the src= and data-href= sections, you will notice that some of the URLs end in ".jpg" and some end in ".jpg/". The ones that end in ".jpg/" are incorrect. These URLs are supposed to be referencing files, not directories, on the server. The ones that end in ".jpg" display correctly, but the ones that end in ".jpg/" only display correctly on browsers that fix syntax errors like this. If you don't think I'm right, just make the change and see how it looks in IE.

    28. Creator Sean Whelan on March 20, 2012

      David please do not come to my page and explain my "inability" to code html. Having received a Bachelor's in Graphic Design and Web Development, I pretty well rounded about my ability to code. Not to mention I have a background in Computer Science which includes java, javascript, css, python, sql etc....Its safe to say I know what I'm doing. Lets stay on topic with this project. Please do not be afraid to contact me personally. I will not hesitate sending anyone raw jpeg files : D 16 days to go!! whoop! Lets see this project get funded : )

    29. Creator David Elliott on March 20, 2012

      I don't understand. The src attributes are clearly broken. Why can't you fix them? Just because Firefox and Chrome overcome your inability to program correct HTML doesn't mean you shouldn't fix the problem.

    30. Creator Sean Whelan on March 20, 2012

      Everyone,
      The images that you see is exactly what your supposed to see. I will not go back and fix those "broken links" you see in IE. This project is about the designs not about web development. As a side note: I am a computer technician by day so those of you still using IE, I strongly recommend upgrading to a different browser such as Firefox and Chrome. IE has so many problems even with the latest versions coming out. Once you switch to a different browser you will see a huge performance different on your machines. Now lets get back to funding this project. Thank yopu everyone so much for pledging. Please spread this project to your friends and lets make it reach its goal!!

    31. Creator David Elliott on March 20, 2012

      No, Sean needs to fix it. I emailed him directly about this. I assume he's just been too busy to deal with it, since I know he's logged in to KS every day.

    32. Creator Krystal on March 20, 2012

      wait..since it's the src page..can i fix anything to make it work?

    33. Creator Krystal on March 20, 2012

      yup IE. If i copy/paste the link without the extra / after .jpg will it work then?
      thanks for the help guys

    34. Creator Mike B on March 17, 2012

      I love these designs - I'm sending the link to friends of mine who are steampunk enthusiasts, as this seems something right up their alley. The goal is closing in, so if other backers start spreading the word too, this could happen!

      Again, love your designs Sean! Looking forward to hopefully having these cards in hand sometime!

    35. Creator David Elliott on March 13, 2012

      Aha! The reason for the broken links is that some of your src attributes have URLs that end with ".jpg/" when they should end with ".jpg". Firefox does extra work to deal with programming errors like this, closing tags and filtering attributes. In this case, IE makes the request and just accepts the failure, while Firefox tries to fix your error and tries again.

    36. Creator David Elliott on March 13, 2012

      @Krystal, what page are you looking at that has problems?

    37. Creator Sean Whelan on March 13, 2012

      @Krystal: What internet browser are you using? I created the page under firefox. I've only seen those marks using IE

    38. Creator Krystal on March 13, 2012

      Am I the only one who can't see some of the images? Some show up and some don't. When I click the links I only get a little red x. =[ Maybe i'm not up to date on my software.

    39. Creator Sean Whelan on March 8, 2012

      @Paul: Not all the designs have been revealed. I keep this page updated with new designs which can be viewed under the Updates tab up above.

    40. Creator Paul on March 7, 2012

      Sean: Apologies if I've missed the obvious but is there somewhere that you've posted pictures of all the card designs - at least the released face cards and 2-10?

    41. Creator Sean Whelan on March 6, 2012

      @Daniel: No problem!

    42. Creator Daniel Karlsson on March 4, 2012

      Looks awesome!
      Could you sign one of my decks? :)

    43. Creator Nathan Canadas on March 2, 2012

      @Nhan - I did that.

    44. Creator Nhan on February 27, 2012

      @Nathan, couldn't you just pick the $25 reward?

    45. Creator Sean Whelan on February 27, 2012

      @James and Stian: Of course I will sign them for you!
      @Nathan: Since you have already pledged and we talk on forums I will make that acception. Anyone else who would like 3 decks please pledge under the $9 reward. if demanded I will later make a reward for 3 decks.

    46. Creator Nathan Canadas on February 27, 2012

      Hi Sean. I pledged for 16$ reward and two decks. I want three. 16/2 is 8. 16+8 = 24. Can I just pledge 24$ and get 3?
      Thx,
      Nathan

    47. Creator James Shipley on February 27, 2012

      I would like my decks signed too please.

    48. Creator Sean Whelan on February 27, 2012

      New court card will be uploaded later today : D

    49. Creator The Great Lazarus on February 27, 2012

      Any updates coming soon?
