Proofing Hiccups

Posted by Jason Kotarski (Creator)

Hello Star Bakers!

I wanted to pop by and give you an update about the production process of Filler. As tomorrow is the last day of October, I'm disappointed to have to report that we won't make that estimated date for delivery. I apologize for that. Using my experience and knowledge from the last 10 campaigns I've delivered, I chose what I thought was a reasonable date for delivery and unfortunately I under-estimated the time that printing this simple card game would take. 

As we've been going back and forth with proofs of the game, we discovered errors in our box template that we had to fix which we did right away. On the manufacturing side of things, the printer misunderstood our instructions for how to arrange the files regarding the card fronts and backs and the communication between changes has been painfully slow. This could be due to the time of year and the increase in games being printed in time for the holidays or the recently passed Essen Game Fair. 

We are currently awaiting another round of corrections from the printer before we authorize them to print a sample copy. 

We will continue to keep you posted as the process moves forward and provide an expected date for delivery as soon as we have an idea of when that will be. I apologize that I don't bring better news but know that we are working hard behind the scenes to bring you the best game possible!

Thanks for your support and understanding.

      No worries. I'd rather the game be right, than rushed. Thanks for the attention to detail. :)

      @Clarisse: The playmats are coming from a different printer, and so far seem A-OK.

      Things happen. Things you cannot understand. Things you cannot control. Scary things. Things that go bump in the night. Just sayin!

      I can wait. Game is going to be so much fun. Day before Christmas would be awesome delivery date, but if not, then a new years early gift!

      Thank you for the update. How were the playmats?
