I wanted to explain something to all my backers and for those following this project. I was talking with the reps over at uspcc earlier today and one of them told me they are being slammed over there in the prototype department. If I would still like to do prototypes (1 deck, 1 uncut tuck case and 1 unsheet) it could take up four weeks for that alone.
Here is what I'm going to do. I am going to skip the prototypes and go right for the printing : D Personally this is great news. This means the decks will be produced in a matter of three weeks. Prototypes are only mock ups. They are digital prints and don't use printing plates. They are hand cut and not machine cut. So to make prototypes and making an actual Bicycle deck are two completely different processes. The only purpose they serve to give a 3d visual of the deck to come. Most companies order prototypes for marketing purposes (i.e. pictures, videos, promotions, trailers etc)
So tomorrow I will be handing in the contract so I'll be put on schedule. Thoughts or concerns? Feel free to contact me at anytime. I'll try to respond back as fast as I can.
So excited! It's getting closer and closer to having this deck in your hands! : D
