This will be our 9th Kickstarter project. The first eight were delivered ON TIME or EARLY to fantastic reviews.  We take the trust backers place in us very serious.  We answer most questions and comments within minutes.  

Most of you know us from the custom coins we create. So why coasters?  

While at the gaming table or computer desk, I use a coaster so my drink doesn't get the surface wet. I decided that I wanted a nice RPG themed coaster and started searching for one. Surprisingly I couldn't find any with the vibrant art that I like so I started obtaining various samples. Most were flimsy or cheap looking. Some looked nice but immediately started getting scratches.

Eventually I discovered that a ceramic coaster with high quality imprinted art was durable and looked amazing. This led me to create Apex Coasters. 

Apex Coasters

  • Round ceramic coaster, 4 inch diameter
  • Each one has a cork backing to protect the surface it is placed on
  • Art is imprinted into the ceramic for an amazing look
  • Matte finish on the artwork - not glazed.
  • The art is durable, scratch, fade, and stain resistant
  • Coaster can be used for cold & hot drinks
  • They can be wiped clean with a damp cloth
  • They also make great table art
  • Each coaster comes packaged in its own box

Apex Coasters are perfect for the gaming table or computer desk! Since they come in individual boxes, they are also a great gift!

We sent sample coasters to some of our previous Kickstarter backers.  This is what they had to say:

Marlena Harris: I've heard the phrase,"I never knew this was missing in my life," and I didn't understand it until this moment. These are amazing. I never wanted coasters before. Now, I think I want a couple dozen of them.

John C: These are fantastic! With so many art choices, nearly any fantasy theme can be reinforced. And they don't need to be hidden away until game night; they will look amazing on the coffee table ANY day. Thanks for sending me these to preview. I'm already all in! I love it! Really, I'm very enthusiastic about this project. 

David Anderson: These coasters perfectly keep frosty drinks from sweating all over my game table! The art is fantastic. They are durable and should give years of service.

Shawn Partner: I'm really impressed with the samples that you sent. They're a nice large size to accommodate just about any glass or mug you're thinking of using. The artwork is very crisp and I love the way it carries the whole way to the edge. Overall, it's a very handsome product, and would be a great addition to any table, gaming or otherwise.  

Lee Fisher:  A fantastic addition to any gamer's arsenal. The only rings you will find on the table will be from the boss fight.  I really like them!

You can choose any combination from the nine coasters shown below. After the project ends, a survey will be sent out so you can select your coasters.

This project is Euro, Canada, and Australia friendly for import taxes/duties. You should not be charged any additional taxes/duties if you are in these locations.  For ALL other countries, any import taxes/duties are your responsibility. 

No matter what you do, international shipping is expensive. In order to ease the burden, we have subsidized some of the costs for international shipping. The prices shown above are what you pay when you back this project.  We actually pay more when you add up the cost of packaging, shipping to the fulfillment center, import taxes, fulfillment fees, postal shipping costs from within your country, and Kickstarter fees.

Each coaster is printed individually so there may be minor variances or blemishes in the art or material.  This is normal.  Of course, for a substantial defect we will replace your coaster.

Since the printing covers the entire surface, a small amount of overspray will be on the side edge. This is completely normal.

The coaster boxes are NOT board game boxes that are meant to be kept or displayed.  They are considered disposable packaging.  

What if you want more than 16 coasters?  Just add $7 to your pledge for each additional coaster. Shipping is included and factored into this amount.

Thank you for looking at our project! 

Risks and challenges

This is our 9th Kickstarter project. All eight of the previous ones have been delivered EARLY or ON TIME. We have a lot of experience on logistics and shipping from our challenge coin company. We have never missed a promised delivery date and have the resources to deal with any unexpected issues.
