Dragon Crate: Bicycle Playing Cards and Miniature

$41,566

755

The short answer is that it's a whole lot of great items in one big box!

Albino Dragon had a spectacular year in 2013 because of Kickstarter. We learned how to make decks, dice, coins, and a lot of other really cool things because of the projects that we ran.

In 2014, we wanted to create something that included the best of those items that we created but still provide something unique. We wanted to get away from the add-ons and produce a product that would have something for everyone.

If you were to buy each of these items separately, they would be over $50 plus shipping!

Included below is a complete list of what's in the crate, but if you keep scrolling you can see details on each one.

  • Dragon Tome - Custom Bicycle playing card deck designed specifically for the Dragon Crate.
  • Miniature - A whopping 60mm custom dragon miniature cast in resin. 3.5" wingspan and 3.25" tall.
  • Coin  - One of our signature collectible coins made especially for this Kickstarter. Each coin is 1.75" in diameter and is made from brass with an enamel finish.
  • Dice - A pair of custom dragon dice.

Risks and challenges

As with every project, we run the risk of natural disasters and other cataclysmic events interfering with manufacturing and shipping schedules.

Having run a few successful Kickstarters previously, we've gotten a pretty good process down for handling pledges, shipping, and fulfillment. We can't promise that there won't be any mistakes, but we've worked very hard to make sure that if we do have them, there won't be many.

We also use the same vendors we have worked with previously. This gives us an excellent idea about their accuracy in costs and turnaround time so that we have been able to plan accordingly.

For this project, we have removed any licensing so that we can be 100% responsible for the timely delivery of our products. Without being tied up waiting on licensing approvals, we'll be free to get this out as soon as production is completed.

Not a risk, but a side note: We wanted to call it a Dragon Krayt, but we weren't sure how many people would get the joke, didn't want to get sued, and the name needed to be easy to find.

FAQ

  • The short answer is no. The long answer involves lessons that we learned from doing multiple projects with Kickstarter. We've learned that whenever we start allowing for items as add-ons, it increases our cost during fulfillment.

    In order for us to be able to get the product price for this so low, we have to make everything exactly the same. It allows us to save money because every product is put together in exactly the same way and because there aren't any variations, it can be done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Any extras we have after the project will be posted on our website at albinodragon.com
