New ABYSSES SIREN DECK (+19cad) 

There is a fine line between the sea witches and sirens. They are always there, every time you gaze upon the abysses, flares that are never so far away.

Brand new drawings of sea witches,  numbered and JQK cards. 

bones and silver, design principle.  

 Jack: dance in the flares of abysses

Queen: sometimes, they have 2 heads and 1 body

King: chubby and thin, but never stupid

 new numbered cards: minions from the depth.

 Joker link cards <LIne of Destiny> 

A siren's egg is the stone at the tip of their flute, an accumulation of sadness taken from sailors' dreams. But for a lone siren, they confuses themselves from time to time. Attempting to make a dream come true by giving their egg to the sea witch moments before their death.   what is the last thing you will ever do in life? isn't that the most important?

The abysses deck will be printed by MPC

 Take a look as the light shines off of the reflective surface of the card stock, The reality is even more unreal as the stock contains both glitter and gold texture effect. ( this is a gif image, please wait)

The Diamond Edition Deck will be printed with the White Gold curious metallic paper.  It's OCM self published, unprecedented attempt, and not available with any other printers.  It is printed here home in north america.

White gold stock are made from imported custom paper, requires industrial printer and manual labour to complete the final process. it changes colour from angles, and have real gold texture and feel. The colour is white under normal light, but changes to gold and gliters upon sunlight or strong light source

below is a detail picture of this thick 14pt paper. 

 Half diamond deco. , real White Gold stock with siren designs in classy line style.  This is the diamond deck tuck made in OCM style.

It will be signed with a gold pen. The 2 smaller posters below comes with the large poster as they depicts the daily lives and birth of a siren.

 These posters are printed in white gold Curious metallic paper as well. and are great to be framed and placed inside your room.

 The uncut tuck will be the ONLY time you can get both Tuck Designs on the white gold C. metallic paper.  The abysses deck tuck can also be made available here upon request if unlocked later.

 The sturdy collectors box features a Magnetic closing clasp with full print Blue ribbons, and gold foils on both the front and back. Due to how expensive it is to manufacture these. they will be limited to around 500 boxes

the art is truly 200 hours in production,painted line by line, can fit 6 decks and it is exclusive to Kickstarter.. 

It is in a flat form well protected ( already assembled) when shipped to save extra shipping expense and avoid damage done to the box during shipping handling. 

 There is a high quality gold foiled signature on the top, and a gold foiled OCM slogan on the back of the box

The box in the picture is a demo version. 

The gold plastic rim on the 2 sides are for demonstration purposes. But can be made available with normal gold rims upon request, please message me for detail. 

The out side and inside wall of the box will be white, it will not be strange blue/green.    The back side of the box contains a gold foil of the OCM slogan. 

The dimension of the box is 21.5x15x6.5 (6 decks)

  It was a long ago when i started this project. 

 To me,  part of wealth is what you still have left when you lost all your money, such as this playing card set I created, designed and aimed to be as unique as it can be. 

 The siren deck is a project that was hand designed from scratch. A total of 1200 hours have been invested in this project. I am hopeful that all of the hard work and energy put into this project can reflects in the details of the work. By supporting my project you're acknowledging that the time spent on it was worth it, and you are supporting all the good projects with real efforts on ks.

 This deck is a combination of both traditional and digital process. I wish this deck will stay with you for the rest of your life and possibly beyond. At least for me, I wish I could be taken away by a siren on the last day of my life. (jokes)

For the backers that followed me  since half year ago, The amount of changes made to the siren deck can probably still be remembered. it was a long build up process over time from 1 version to anther and something worth to be carefully examined.

Thank you 

please message me for additional questions. :)

Q&A

Is this a 2rd relaunch?

The previous successful relaunch was paused due to printer and shipping issues in respect to the backers. if you are a previous backer, please see the newest update in the old campaign.  all potential miscalculations have been cleared during the time I paused the project.

what if i have other questions?

message me or leave me a comment on the wall. I am online very often as everyone knows it.

Why is the shipping cost got expensive compared to first project?

Originally in my 1st relaunch. I designed a cheap 1 for all shipping method by raising the cost of the add ons, in respect to the suggestion of a very close backer of mine whom later on became my good friend. 

After the printer issue, I reverted the cost of the shipping back to normal similar to other ks project because I do not want any more potential miscalculations to interact the project. 

for shipping rate details, please visit canada post or look around in the playing card projects here on ks. As all shipping costs are very transparently displayed and can be find online. 

The  shipping cost of the heavy weight tiers are reduced  because I took the time during the absence and created a post office tm card to save money for backers. 

Why are there no discount (10-20 percent off) like some other card projects?

discount is a sign of lack of work/passion in creator's project.  And 90 percent of times backers will regret after getting it.  Siren deck is guaranteed one of the kind, limited edition and will not devalue over time.

what if I find a better shipping rate to ship to me?

this is the lowest cost for shipping I can find in Canada as seen when compared to other playing card projects.  if you do find something better  and insist on using it, please message me and we can work it out. 

why not using fulfillment centres for shipping?

I have add ons that are not manufactured with the cards, and new fulfillment centres tends to miss out on international backers. 

I will take the matter in to my own hand and will not charge everyone for my labour to package and ship them.

Why not use epcc stardust stock to substitute for white gold stock anymore?

As explained in the problem, I can't fulfill the min 2000 deck order for epcc. After the negotiation, I have tried very hard searching for information on the remaining 2 major printers (mpc and npcc) but there was no luck in locating a cheaper substitute. Currently, the diamond deck will be put back to the original path.  Being accurately printed, made in North America instead of china, and made in high quality stock.

I have lowered the cost of White Gold in compensation for this change

Risks and challenges

In the past week, I have cleared all potential problem including shipping, right now, everything alright all the way to shipping.
I have talked to all 5 major printers (uspcc, epcc, npcc, lpcc, mpc). and had very detailed discussions with them through email, phone calls, private messages and uc forums.
Right now, the printer factory for white gold printing and box manufacture have been settled with deposit already paid.

If there do come another big technical problem in the project where I can't not fix it online and it effects backers deeply. I will pause the campaign and will definitely not take backers' money until I solved all potential problems. This is my promise to you.

As for shipping, everyone will most likely get their product in august as I made a new business tm card to allow cheap express shipping. But however, I know I have backers from asia and australia, In such case, please absolutely stay in touch with me on ks and be patient. thank you
