Hello and welcome to Tarotwave!
Tarotwave is a full 78 card tarot deck created using digital art and collage. It's inspired by glitch art, neon art, space, vaporwave, nostalgia, and beyond.
One day while sitting in my Astronomy class I was spacing out while learning about the death of stars and how when a star dies, the star dust and material it sends off into space is recycled into new stars and planetary objects. I thought, "Cool! That'd be an awesome idea for a tarot card", and whipped my computer out mid-class and started working on it. I didn't stop there, and after an incredible outpouring of support and feedback I went on to create more cards until I had an entire deck done!
All 78 cards display vivid full size art that spans the entire front of the card. The art has a rounded neon border and the name of the card at the bottom.
The deck comes with a tuck box for your cards featuring a unique design that wraps around the box. It is a full 78 card deck featuring both the major and the minor arcana. Each card has a beautiful holographic reversible design on the back.
The posters are 12X18 and printed on extra-heavy holographic card stock! They're sturdy, and have rainbow prismatic flecks that sparkle in the light. You can either get the regular Tarotwave poster that features the design on the deck box, or for a little extra you can get a custom poster with the design of any card you would like from the deck!
Edit: Added new stretch goals to accommodate for us reaching the first two! Thank you everyone for the support!
- (reached!)$6,000 - Rigid Card Box - if we can reach $6000 dollars I will order the decks with a rigid box versus the the current tuckbox. It's sturdier and will keep your cards even safer!
- (reached!)$10,000 - Online Guidebook - An online guide to reading each card along with a look into the process and idea behind each cards design. I've talked about free resources and guides on the Tarotwave blog but this guide will be specific to the Tarotwave card deck.
- (reached!)$11,000! A unique tarot card only available with the Tarotwave Deck! This will be included with all decks in and out of the Kickstarter. (I will also include a thank you card with information on the blog, website, and how to access the pdf booklet)
- 15,000! A holographic postcard for all backers as a thank you!
Risks and challenges
The cards are completely finished and I have checked the quality of the printing press through a hard copy of the deck and it's wonderful!
After the Kickstarter it will take a couple of weeks for the cards to print at the printing press and to get into my hands. The biggest challenge will be making sure I can ship out the decks as soon as possible but knowing thats not exactly my area of expertise I'm prepared to partner with a fulfillment shipping service that works specifically with kickstarter projects to assure shipping is handled as professionally as possible.
Thankfully even though I'm a student I'm approaching the end of my school year! I've spent months preparing for this project so don't worry! As always I will keep you guys up to date with the entire process through the tarotwave blog on tumblr.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
