Nat Iwata (that's me) is a veteran card creator, having successfully created 6 decks, the most recent being Neverland and The Goonies. When he's not launching a new deck, or planning the next one, he's hard at work making video games, illustrating or updating iTunes.
Risks and challenges
6 Decks and 1 book later, I'm learning that there are always obstacles to overcome with Kickstarter fulfillment. That being said, I've delivered 6, soon to be 7, campaigns now and have processes in place to help with the challenges I'll face, and reduce risk. I have a fulfillment/shipping company that handles my packaging and shipping, know the print process well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
