Mission Cards & Timeline Update
Hey Backers! I hope you're having a fine fall day! I've just got some information back from Panda, and I'd like to keep you in the loop:
MPC Review: Card Issue
After looking over the MPC everything was looking good, there's some small minor changes that we noticed (the orange "spice" cubes are slightly more opaque than previous printings) but nothing worth changing.
However, when we compared this printing to previous printings, one thing became apparent, the Missions Cards backs in the new printing don't quite match the previous printings. They were more red than the original orange see the images below:
This is unfortunate because when consulting with Panda about this re-print, this was the #1 thing we talked about after reviewing the PPC, and has been our stated top priority. Panda has been amazing at everything else, but in this one area we didn't quite hit the mark.
This will, unfortunately, add some time onto our delivery estimate. I apologize for any frustration or inconvenience this may cause!! I really do try and add enough time for these sorts of things, however we've used up my buffer time on multiple other smaller things. This particular issue is quite unexpected; we've had 3 previous printings with the same manufacturer, all of them were very accurate color reproduction, and the exact same digital files were used in all 4 printings.
Ok, how much time? It looks like with getting these mission cards re-printed we're looking at finishing production in mid-November now. Here's my current best estimate timeline wise:
I realize that this puts our delivery timeline right during the holidays - which can be difficult for many people (traveling etc.) so we'll see how our estimate plays out and if it looks like delivery would take place over the holidays I'll see if we can get some sort of optional "hold for delivery" for people who are traveling during that time.
Again - my humblest apologies for the delay - if you'd like to cancel your order and get a refund, just let me know and I'll take care of you!
