About

Unique Designs Playing Cards

$3,849

I started designing the back of a card one day and did not really have any ideas for the face cards themselves yet, but then I started to use the symmetrical theme of my art for the inspiration. You could say right off the bat that I had to overcome some major challenges wanting to design a deck of cards. Not only do you need an idea but you have to put a lot of time and effort into the whole process. When I first started I was not sure how I wanted my deck to look or what to call it. But it came together with the help of others in the card community and previous backers. I love how this deck turned out it looks better than I expected it to look in real life. I tried to get the designs on this deck to look hand drawn and came up with something new that looks very real. I really want you to enjoy it and so I have been hard at work again to make it better. I updated the pips and I made the indices smaller. I picked a different card company called Make Playing Cards because I can print the exact amount of decks I need and the cost is less. So if you have been here before thanks for coming back and if you are new to Unique Designs welcome and enjoy.

Costs Explained:

I will be using Make Playing Cards to print the deck. I have all my artwork finished and it is ready to print. I need $3,500.00 to print and ship the decks and I don't have the resources to fund my dream printing this deck. $3,500.00 is for the printing, packaging, shipping and handling of the decks. I have been studying other card projects on KS and I have purchased a few as well. First I will be overseeing the shipping and I will be making sure that the cards are packaged well so that they arrive safely. Second the estimated delivery time is 4 months to print package and ship out the decks. I don't have a busy schedule so you can be sure that my time will be devoted to getting your orders out in a timely fashion. Please know that shipping International is expensive, but for this deck it is worth it.

 Limited edition Signed Deck. Signed on the tuck flap and sealed only 50 available.

Risks and challenges

I launched some previous projects an learned a lot from them. I did lots of research and got advice from other Cardists. Some things that could go wrong are print delays, other projects had problems with shipping and fulfillment. I will be hiring some one to help me ship and package all the rewards. Be assured that I will be working hard to ensure your decks arrive in a timely fashion and undamaged. Shipping requires that you fill out your backer survey at the end of this project. I'll get your address from this survey, but that means I can't ship your items unless your address is 100% accurate. It is really simple to fill out! If there are mistakes, I'll contact you, or you can contact me if you have questions.
