 The Holmes Edition

 

The Holmes Edition features a simple but elegant tuck case, that features intricate embossing and also gold foiling. The Holmes Edition courts cards are a whimsical stylized rendition of the characters of the Conan Doyle world that still have an element of the traditional court cards we are all accustomed to. The Holmes Edition also features Metallic Red Ink on the face cards as well.

The Moriarty Edition

The Moriarty Edition features a simple but elegant tuck case, that features intricate embossing and silver foiling. The Moriarty Edition courts cards are a whimsical stylized rendition of the characters of the Conan Doyle world that still have an element of the traditional court cards we are all accustomed to. The courts designs are the same as the Holmes Edition but with a cold desaturated feel, with elements of grunge and decay, to pay homage to evil villain the take their name sake from.

 A note about shipping:

I use the USPS for fulfillment. The USPS will be raising their postage rates in January of 2014 and all shipping rates, both domestic and international reflect this change. I have included a link to general USPS shipping rates as they apply to a variety of different package assortments and shipping locations for examples of these prices.

Actual shipping rates may vary http://www.kingswildproject.com/images/SH/ShippingRates.htm

Risks and challenges

This will be my 3rd playing card project and by far the two most difficult aspects to a playing card project are the production and most of all the fulfillment.

Production:
Over the past two playing card projects I have built great working relationships with the customs team at the United States Playing Card Company. From the prepress to postpress I am familiar with key people from every department.

Fulfillment:
Fulfillment, Postage Rates data organization are key in having a successful playing card project. With the success of the Federal 52 Part II project I hired the expertise of a great fulfillment house in Austin TX that has great experience shipping playing cards.

USPS Shipping:
I use the USPS for fulfillment. The USPS will be raising their postage rates in January of 2014 and all shipping rates, both domestic and international reflect this change. I have included a link to general USPS shipping rates as they apply to a variety of different package assortments and shipping locations for examples of these prices.

Actual shipping rates may vary
http://www.kingswildproject.com/images/SH/ShippingRates.htm

International Shipping:
International Shipping is always a rough topic to talk about. After 2 large projects in which up to 35% of my backers were international I have learned some very valuable lesson when it comes to International shipping. The pledge tiers and shipping amounts are based on experience and also what is financially feasible for completing a successful project on time while giving your backers a great experience along the way. So many projects fail due to poor fiscal planning in the area of international shipping.
