Absolutely fantastic, Craig. That's why we do what we do :)
Glad to hear she is safe and sound. I know I am still loving the decks -- we use them for playing poker at bowling almost every week! They are much-loved.
Thanks for the message, Craig. Yes, I recently was able to get back in touch with Marilen. She was dealing with personal issues at the time but is doing well now. We are sorry again that some backers were affected by this and hope that the solution presented worked out for those who were. Myself and Marilen really do appreciate everyone's support on this project. Really hope all our backers are enjoying their decks!
Did Marilen ever surface?

Thanks Philip, I just checked your tracking and it looks like it was held at your post office in the UK for sometime. I'll send you a private message with more info ...
I live in the Uk and still have not received my decks. Any idea when I might get them?
@RedRon, since you are Canadian you should have actually been one of the first to receive your shipment. I'll send you a private message now to see if we can get to the bottom of this ...
I haven't seen my deck or uncut sheet yet. Are you still shipping items out?
Just found my decks in the mail box, love them, thanks heaps
Awesome Craig :)
@Creator Aha, gotcha. Yeah, we're absolutely enjoying them. No doubt about that!
Thanks Craig. We actually printed the deck through the United States Playing Card Company, the number one manufacturer of playing cards in the world. We are using the same cardstock that is used in Bicycle branded playing cards -- so it really is quite a premium quality. Thanks for the feedback though and happy to hear most people seem to be enjoying their decks!
@Sylvain I agree, that is probably my only beef is I wish the cardstock that was chosen was a bit thicker. Besides that, they've been enjoyable to play with and always invoke conversation.. especially Snow White. Haha.
Still not had anything yet. Hoping to get it soon
I received my deck today, cards are nice, a little bit harder would be great but it's fine.
Thx, and great campaign. Deliver in time it's cool !
Cards received in the UK today with grateful thanks :-)
My deck arrived to my door in Sweden today. It looks stunning. Thank you!
The 3 Decks arrived today (UK) cheers :) They are great. https://instagram.com/p/-bLCSej1aM/
i just see people have receive their deck i cross my fingers to have mine soon ;)
(I got a mail 6 days ago about shipping delivery..
The tracking didn't worked at this moment, the number wasn't knew by the website..
Apparently it's from you.. because i received all my others product expected ..
I still not receive your card deck but the tracking number works since today..
It would be nice to have a link between the first mail (from : firstname.lastname@example.org) and you and not have to guess by ourself..)
i hope everyone are ok, i read about Marilen..
I hope you will make more fun decks like this one
I hope to receive mine quickly now ^^
Best regards from France.
Arrived today in Michigan -- thank you. I hope Marilen surfaces at some point.. like you said, hopefully she is OK!
Fantastic guys ... happy to hear the cards are starting to arrive!
Mine arrived today. Thank you very much.
Recieved today, these are great! Well done!
Got the cards yesterday. Very impressed with the cards,
Thanks Craig, I was actually planning on sending out an update today! Just got a little sidetracked as we have been working through the shipping. Don't worry, your cards are on their way :)
@Creator Since it's been a month now since the last official update, it may be time for another to let all backers know where things stand. Looking forward to getting the cards.......
Hi Christoph, you are absolutely not the only one. As I explained in the email, I have unfortunately been unable reach Marilen over the past several weeks. I really do not know what has happened and I hope she is okay. As a result, all the backers who selected the original sketch or custom mugshot reward level are being fully refunded for that purchase. I cannot apologize enough for this circumstance and I am really at a loss for what more I can do. As I also detailed in my email, as a token of my apology I will still be sending your decks of cards to you entirely free of charge. If you have any other suggestions on how I can better handle the situation I would be happy to hear them. I very much appreciate all of the backers who supported this project and would like to ensure that everybody is happy.
Did any other backers of the original sketches get a email saying the artist went AWOL and won't be fulfilling their end of the bargain? Curious if I'm the only one.
I don't see where I ever received a survey in my email in October so I'm not sure I filled it out. I most definitely want the deck tho....any help to verify this would be appreciated.
Please check your PM inbox.
Thanks everybody for getting us over that finish line -- we couldn't have done it without the awesome enthusiasm and support you have shown for this deck!
@The Doctor: no problem if you want to add more decks. We'll chat via private message to work out what you need.
Congratulations guys! Great work :-)
So are we going to be able to add more decks on a survey? I backed this and totally forgot and need more than one deck.
it's officially funded! congrats guys :D
Yay, so glad to come back from my trip and see this funded!!! :D. Great work all.
Oh - you're a lot closer to your stretch goal than I thought! Reaching 100% must have triggered some things on Kickstarter and/or given people confidence as now there's a steady trickle - woot!
$15k CAD, Nich. Which is practically nothing to the US right now :)
Woo Hoo! Is the stretch goal $15 USD or CAD?
awesome sauce! can't wait for this to reach my door step already :P !
THANK YOU EVERYBODY! We have finally made it. Marilen and I are thrilled to get these bad boys into your hands :)
You did it!!!!
Congratulations, looks like you made it.
Thanks Julie, we're almost there!
Really want this to happen! Changed my pledge to get an "ace of diamond" sketch + 2 decks! :) Fingers crossed!
Thanks for letting me know about your experience! Framing won't be an issue for me, as over the years I've had to do custom framing for my own works and ones that I've collected, like this one.
Depending on where you live I can see it being difficult, but I'd also suggest looking in the framing department of a chain craft store if you have one locally. I was pleasantly surprised by one's selection of frames when I needed a handful at once.
Mine were delivered in great condition. But if you are going to frame it, I would start looking for one. I'm still searching for frames good enough to embrace the last projects paintings. (I hope to post the photos as soon as they are found.) it's a nightmare to find a store that actually cares about quality over just shoddy basic plastic or thin wood frames. Especially local.
Thanks Christoph! Sketches will be shipped very carefully :) Either in a rigid tube or in an envelope between two pieces of cardboard ...
Just pledged for the ace of clubs, and I'm looking forward to your success in a few days! One question: How will the sketches be shipped?
Thanks Jx Lew, much appreciated!
And thanks for the suggestion Nich. We'll likely be sending one out soon ...
