It's gonna fail!

Hi everyone!

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...

What's next?

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$) to approximately 2000€ (~2470$).

Of course it will ask me a lot of time to finish all I have to work on. I have other things to do with Ars Goetia Design (feel free to follow me on Facebook or Instagram) in the same time.

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!

      Very sad to see this- these looked awesome and I was very excited to see them. I’ll be backing them next time for sure:)

      Il faut le prendre du bon cote, c'est ton premier projet et tu as deja reussit a amasser €3000. Donc ton idee de recommencer a €2000 est tres bonne, Depasser ca, c'est la que tu fait des stretch goals pour fair monter un plus haut (~2500: border argente, ~3500: boite embosser, ETC). Tes designs sont bien travailler et sorte du calque normal d'un jeu de carte ce qui lui donne beaucoup de potentiel.
      Si malheureusement, le montant n'atteint pas ton but maintenant. J'ai hate de revoir ce projet ressortir dans quelques semaines
      Bonne chance !

      7 Days can make a difference, I am positive we can do this

      But of course, OF COURSE, if a magical billionaire king comes and completes the project, I'll do it!!
