About this project
With the recent surge in popularity in the concept of memes and rage faces on every website from Reddit to Facebook, this is the perfect time for this project. Every card features a different meme or rage face, with the card often having a relation to the rage face or meme used. Lower cards have angry (FUU) and frustrated (Y U NO!) memes, while the medium and higher cards have corresponding rage faces (Not bad) (Me Gusta) (Everything went better than expected). Of course the joker is forever alone.
A good friend of mine who is a graphic designer made all of these cards. When possible, vector based images were used ensuring that every image and card is high resolution and smooth.
I wanted this project to be something everyone can benefit from, which is why I added exponentially increasing rewards for your donation. The more money we raise, the cheaper it is for me to produce these cards, and therefore the cheaper you can get them for. If you can't afford to donate more than $10 and you want to do your part to get these made, spread the word. Post this page on Facebook, Reddit, show it to your friends. And in exchange, that $10 donation can get you as many as 3 decks. Check out the tier system and you'll see that you can get them for as little as $2 per deck, which is more than enough for you to turn around and sell them for a good profit if that's what your intention is.
I will be covering shipping costs but will send them the least expensive delivery method available. If you'd like special shipping arrangements let me know ahead of time and I'd be happy to insure it, get delivery confirmation, or accommodate you however I can.
Also, if you'd like to donate more than $100, if you have any suggestions you think would help, or if you'd just like to chat, feel free to shoot me a message and I'd be happy to call/e-mail/IM you about it.
Edit: A few people have messaged me with concerns about possible copyright infringement. All 52 cards have been designed, and there are only a couple that could lead to a possible copyright infringement situation. Assuming this project gets off the ground, I will consult with an attorney and make any necessary changes to ensure this is done in a completely legal manner and that there are no possible infringement scenarios.
I already promised a couple people free shipping internationally and I will honor those who have already asked me. Generally though it will cost me more than $10 to ship internationally. I will absorb some of the cost, but if you live outside of the United States please add an additional $7.50 to your pledge to cover the cost of international shipping. I'm completely willing to make any special arrangements. If you live in a certain country and contact me privately we can figure out exactly what the cost of shipping would be and I will accommodate you however possible. I was hoping to provide free shipping for everyone, but again the cost of shipping internationally will exceed the minimum pledge amount, so there's no way I can do it. Again, if there are any questions or issues with this, please contact me privately and I will be more than happy to do whatever I can for you.
