A Single Custom Dice (Canceled)
1 copy needed? You can now easily get your design printed on a wooden or plastic game dice. Our new revolutionary print technology.
The 1 copy-production-run concept
BoardGamesMaker.com (BGM), is run and owned by mother company, QP Group, a world renowned board games manufacturer with over 35 years’ experience in the tabletop games industry. We released our one-of-a-kind and hugely successful website in 2015 which allows game designers, whether seasoned or newbies to materialize their game ideas into a professionally printed and manufactured prototype game with full production quality and no minimum. Using our highly efficient and user-friendly online interface, designers can upload and have their designs or artwork printed on to their designated game components and shipped worldwide in 1 - 2 weeks without incurring huge setup costs and time.
Don’t underestimate the power of dice. A throw of dice determines your fate of winning or losing a game. The original die being one of the oldest gaming elements, dates back thousands of years ago, where it was originally a four sided piece used during games or for fortune telling. Nowadays, the standard, typical six-sided cube is decked with a number of dots on each side and typically comes in pairs. However, an up rise in different gaming creativity led to more dice sizes and shapes such as the D8, D10, D12, D20 which have more sides to them than the traditional D6 and is a core element in fantasy role playing games. Even though the dice was invented many years ago, it is still one of the most highly regarded, adaptable and treasured piece of gaming element in any traditional board game or modern game design.
Time to toss the dice!
Now you’ve come up with an idea/concept for a new or existing game which requires the need of a custom dice, how do you prototype it first before going onto producing it as a mass market game? Before BGM, it was darn complicated and expensive. As our first Kickstarter project, we’re really proud of how far our team have come in developing a single-printed customizable dice using state of the art technology, the first of its kind in the tabletop games industry. With our BGM single-printed custom dice, your dice for your unique game concept no longer has to be a standard dice with red or black dots. We have a variety of shapes and sizes including D6, D8, D10, D12, D20, round or straight corners that you can customize to match your original game theme design.
Our new found state of the art printing technology and original manufacturing method allows us to print your simple or intricate designs onto each face of a dice in full color. Not only can you use your own artwork, but you can even choose to have a photo printed dice, where you can create a fun game out of your family member’s photos. We use industry standard plastic or wood material as the base for the dice for durability and robustness which provides good impact strength, increasing the workability and making the dice well balanced, which means once the dice is thrown, each side has an equal chance of landing facing up.
The revolutionary single custom dice technology
What makes our custom printed dice really special and different from the rest of the market, is that for starters, this technology and manufacturing method is the first in the games industry. The printing of the designs onto each side of a dice was the most challenging aspect when developing this item. Getting the proper sizing and registration onto each face on to the dice on this new machine is by no means an easy task. Through our R&D, we are printing using a bespoke manufacturing method that works the way we need it to work! The use of a special technique allows us to print your artwork or designs onto the dice in full color with excellent results, allowing the output to be crisp and sharp.
Another reason why this new technology is wonderful is that unlike screen printing or heat transfer which is the industry standard for dice printing and is easily scratched and only available at huge quantities, we can produce your custom dice at no minimum right up to huge quantities. It is also very robust i.e. printed areas does not scratch off or fade in color easily.
More about BGM
Before BGM, if you came up with a great idea for a new board game or card game, it was a tremendously hard and expensive task to produce a quality prototype unless you had a ton of money and likely from a large company with ample resources, manpower and network. Not anymore...
We created our website BoardGamesMaker.com and released it in 2015 with one goal in mind. And that was to cater for the growing needs of smaller game designers as well as providing an online platform for companies or an aspiring individual to create their game prototypes with real ease and speed. What’s more, we offer prototyping services but we don’t do prototype quality - it’s all full production quality components even if you’re just asking for one sample component to check.
Our website offers a huge and constantly growing selection of standard and non-standard game pieces and components for board game or card game designers to create their own game or enhance an existing game. We provide a one-stop service from prototyping right up to full production and deliver to you or your customers/backers from around the world.
So how can we do this while other traditional manufacturers can’t? Throughout the 35 years that we have been in operation, we have been investing very heavily and building on new state of the art technology. We have also continuously invested on progressing and developing our R&D knowledge. During this time, our developments have led us to very efficient and lean production workflows where our dedicated and skilled workers have mastered their control and work on. The remarkable flexibility of our production range allows game designers to order from one piece to hundreds of thousands of copies of their game depending on their needs. A no-minimum policy on standard game components, custom printed with the designers artwork and manufactured at a quality which is no less than that found on full production runs is the core value of BoardGamesMaker.com and we hope that our continual efforts in further developing technology and integrating them into the traditional workflow, which allows us to work very closely with talented game designers and creators can have a very positive impact in the board game industry.
We hope that you’ll love the new single custom dice by BGM as much as we have enjoyed developing and playtesting it.
Risks and challenges
We have carried out and ran many successful Kickstarter projects before. As we are producing these game dice in our own production facilities and distributing though our own fulfillment center, the only risks and challenges that we may encounter on the way are system breakdowns which we are still able to control albeit some time delay. Other risks out of our control include natural disasters and postal service strikes which shouldn't happen, hopefully. We foresee that this project will go very smoothly and we promise to make sure that we get all rewards to our backers in the time frame specified.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
