About

 This project is in Canadian Dollars. 20 CAD is roughly 15 US.

I love birthday related items and I was inspired by a gift I received of raw gem stones. I started working on a project to create plastic dice that held the idea of the birthday gem stones inside of them.  

The dice are a mixture of transparent and opaque materials to give the beautiful effect of a real stone. I have a manufacturer already lined up and I'm hoping to get you your dice as soon as possible!  

Once the project is completed the profits will be going towards creating an online store that will carry all sorts of gaming accessories that are adorable and beautiful. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

We are featured on Dice Maniac Club! Check them out on Facebook! 

Here are all the sets that have been created so far!

I started this whole project because of my son Gabriel. I want to make a brighter future for him as well as change our living circumstances. I am a gamer and I've always looked at dice wishing they were more beautiful. 

I also wanted that when I went into stores that I could buy the same set multiple times rather then be limited to trying to find complimentary sets. 

The Whole Process

I started by hunting down pictures on the net of gem stones I liked and were inspiring to me.

 I then talked to a manufacturer about how to go about creating custom dice.

I wanted to do a mix of solid and transparent colors to replicate gem stones.

I Had to go an look at thousands of colors and select the pantone colors I felt best represent my project.

 Once I had the colors I kept talking with the manufacturers until we could get my concept created. It took about 5 Months from concept to this stage.

Here are three factory sample pictures that I had made.

 I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Risks and challenges

SHIPPING AND DELIVERY

Our estimated Shipping Date is July 2019. Of course, we hope to get your dice to you much sooner than that, but when manufacturing dice in China anything can happen!

LATE BACKERS & PLEDGE CHANGES

Please try to keep all pledges within the Kickstarter. I will not be accepting late backers. Small modifications may be possible but will delay your shipment. You will not be able to add more than the cost of a single set after the Kickstarter has closed and only if you have an existing pledge.

Risks and challenges

There could be some variables in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced in China, such as: Production delays, Shipping delays, and Customs delays. To take these factors into account, I’ve over-estimated when I plan on shipping your rewards to you.



If one set of dice is not selected enough to fulfill quantities I will request you select another color, I'm hoping this won't happen!

This is our first Kickstarter, so I'm sure there are things I have missed that could be a challenge but I will do my best to get you your dice.
