It's gonna fail!
It is not a depressed message here. It's a realistic one. I made this first project without enough knowledge about Kickstarter and playing cards. Mistakes I won't repeat, of course.
It's obvious now that the project will fail. 1200€ missing, eight days remaining.
But it's alright!
I already said that several times but again: I want to thank every each of you who put your faith in me. I know we will meet again on Kickstarter...
Here are the good news.
This failure allows me to work harder than ever on this same project. I don't want to stop here. It's a stressful adventure but a really enjoying one! Making my own playing cards is a pleasure I cannot deny.
Of course I will not be back in a day, or a week. This time, I will take the time to do ALL the project. I will come back when all the cards will be done, with a full physical sample (probably made with makeplayingcards).
As I said in a previous news, I will work with CARTAMUNDI. Some things will change:
- BETTER PRINT QUALITY
- SIMPLER DESIGN (probably no silver edge, no engraving on the box)
- REALLY LOWER PRICE
About the last point, it's the number one good news that makes me happy of this failure. The project will fall from 5000€ (~6170$) to approximately 2000€ (~2470$).
First of all, I will come back with a small Kickstarter project or two about some postcards... You'll see! If I tell you Sleepy Hollow?
So, here it is! Not a "farewell" thing but a "see you soon" one!
