My name's Chris Rallis and you might have seen my artwork on Magic: The Gathering cards. Over the years, working for MtG and attending several GPs, players and fans keep asking for playmats. I couldn't afford to produce them myself though, as I'd have to pay UltraPRO upfront for production and shipping to the UK.
After long consideration I decided that a Kickstarter campaign would be the best way to get them out to you. I will be printing official Wizards of the Coast/UltraPRO playmats of my best artworks ONLY for this campaign. Unique playmats that you can't find anywhere else. You help me raise the funds and you get one of a kind playmats at a competitive price. A win-win situation!
What makes these playmats so special?
- Beautiful artwork. I've chosen my best pieces for these playmats. Artwork that I'm really proud of.
- Limited production. These playmats are being produced for this campaign only. You can't find them anywhere else.
- Unobtrusive logo. Smaller logo means less artwork space covered. Also the Planeswalkers logo make them look more distinguished from those produced for GPs.
Furthermore, you'll be able to get prints of your favourite artwork (A3 size, 420 x 297 mm/11.7 x 16.5 in ) at a lower price than my website. These are giclee prints, produced on museum quality archival paper using high quality pigment inks.
Finally, for a limited number of hardcore MtG collectors, I'm offering a bundle of all 3 playmats, all 3 prints and a custom UltraPRO playmat with a Black & White sketch of your choice covering the whole playmat. Something that print on demand services can't offer!
Is there going to be another Kickstarter campaign anytime soon? Not in the near future. Probably in 3-4 years. These 3 images are my best artworks since I started working for MtG, 5 years ago. So, considering that it takes about 1 year for new artwork to be released, it's going to be a while for another KS campaign.
Thank you for backing this campaign!

This is an example of a custom playmat. It will have a sketch of your choice.
Risks and challenges
These playmats take approximately 8-10 weeks to be produced and shipped to the UK. They will be processed and shipped to backers as soon as possible. This will take another 2-3 weeks, depending on demand. Custom playmats will take a little longer for obvious reasons.
We aim to have them all shipped by the end of November 2018.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
