The Princess Bride Playing Cards from USPCC

$136,009

2,525

  • 3 Unique decks, each illustrated by a different amazing artist
  • Mix and match which decks you would like from the rewards
  • Richly illustrative design 
  • Intricately designed playing card backs 
  • One of a kind court cards with characters based on The Princess Bride 
  • Custom Jokers 
  • Magic finish that allows cards to handle smoothly & last longer than cheaper playing card decks 

You may have seen our work on The Name of the Wind, Synthesis, The White Rabbit, or The Call of Cthulhu decks that we've done over the past year. Fortunately, some folks in high places have seen them as well and we were able to secure licensing for one of our favorite movies ever: The Princess Bride.

Dare the fire swamps and evade the R.O.U.S.'s and flame spurts. Challenge the Sicilian in a game of wits and maybe try a little iocane powder. Avoid the six-fingered man and have fun stormin’ the castle with us!

 Good night, backer. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

                                                                                      

Risks and challenges

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

With only a two person operation, if something happens to either of us, that will run the risk of impacting the project. In the event that Noelle or I don't have the tolerance to iocane powder that we used to, we will not be fulfilling this project. Fortunately, I don't think either of us have a vacation planned to Australia anytime soon.

We've contracted with some very responsible and talented artists, but there is always still a chance that they may not be able to complete the work and we will have to find alternatives.

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, 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.

FAQ

  • Unlike our other decks that were based on our own designs, this project carries some additional costs that we did not incur previously. This time around we have expenses like licensing and agent fees as well as a price increase for USPS shipping starting in January of 2014.

    Last updated:
  • Every deck Bicycle makes is sealed with a sticker that shows that the deck hasn't been opened. Normally, this seal is just black, but with a custom seal, we are able to add our own art so that it thematically matches the rest of the deck.

    Last updated:
  • Just add in the amount of each tier if you would like more. So for example, if you are a domestic backer and want 5, just put in $28 for 2 and $40 for 3. International backers will add the appropriate shipping required for each level.

  • Just add the amount for your item to the final pledge total. At the end of the project we'll ask what any additional funds are for.
