FUNDING THE VORTEX DECK
When I began designing Vortex, I had a simple goal in mind: Innovate. I was sick of seeing cards being made with the same old designs. I think everyone was sick of them. Skulls, no color, standard faces, boring backs - I had to ask myself if I could stop that trend.
Now that the cards are finally taking shape, all I can say is that they're everything I personally wanted them to be.
And I think you guys will like them too.
Over the course of this Kickstarter, you guys will be kept in-the-know on every design update beyond what is already posted down below. The deck is already completed and ready for printing, all we are waiting on is your pledge!

Our Pledge/Reward Philosophy
We spent countless hours going over our rewards to make sure there is something in there for everybody. One thing we pride ourselves in is the free domestic shipping, and discounted flat-rate international shipping. Yeah, it's $9 a deck (the production costs are insane on this one) but we are paying out of pocket to ship these to you. Think about it, other people charge you to get you their products. That's nonesense. You guys are the people that help us make our dreams a reality, the least we could do is throw in free shipping and some other entitlements. The best part? We ship and pack professionally, ensuring your decks will reach you quickly and unharmed.
On top of that, we offer bulk discounts for those that go through cards/resell them in a frenzy.
And on top of that, the retail price for these decks when they launch will be $11, and these will never be sold by us outside of Kickstarter. That means when they're gone, they're gone. This provides you guys with a unique opportunity to grab these hassle free right now with a metric ton of discounts.
Heck, we even threw in an option to get the cards up to two weeks before anyone else can (very useful if you do YouTube reviews).
If that wasn't enough to tide you over, we spent days creating a unique art piece that is framed and sent to those of you that order it here. There are only 25 of them, and along with the 100 uncut sheets, we vow to never sell them or even hand them out as promotional items outside of Kickstarter.
For every benchmark we cross financially, we will put 100% of the funds back into the Vortex deck & AetherCards. Check it out:
- Reaching $20,000 - We print the Vortex deck and break even on our project GOAL COMPLETED!
- Reaching $22,000 - We develop a professional, sleek website with amazing, never-before-seen features GOAL COMPLETED!
- Reaching $28,000 - All backers receive a promotional code to use on our next Kickstarter deck!
