It's been a year since I released the 5th set. It's time for the 6th set of FACE CARDS to claw back the soil and crawl from the grave.
If you're familiar with all of my previous FACE CARDS Kickstarter campaigns then you should know the quality and passion that I put into each trading card set. For those who are coming into this new, let me tell what you'll expect...
My main objective with each Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for the printing costs and cover shipping and Kickstarter fees. The majority of the cards have been created and are ready for press. I just need a little financial help to get the ball rolling.
By supporting you'll get the basic ZOMBIES set PLUS EXCLUSIVE material (rewards) only offered here as a Kickstarter backer!
As before, I've opted for a 21 day fundraising period. Please share this with a ghoul, a friend, and a fan who might also be interested in this novelty item.
UPDATE: Final Stretch Goal unlocked! All backers will receive a 4 sticker set to be voted on after the campaign ends, 5 Zombie Fighter cards, and 5 Bonus Zombie cards.
Each basic 25 card set has 1 title card and 24 b&w Zombie portrait cards.
Every backer will also receive 1 limited 'Kickstarter Funded' title card.
Every card has a detailed monstrous portrait on the front and revealing info about the character on the back. The info includes; character's name, actor, movie they were in, director, synopsis, trivia, and poster.
The sets does not contain any nudity and is considered "safe for work."
Only 500 sets will be produced, the title card will be signed and numbered, and each set will be in its own crystal clear 2 piece slider box.
There will be one character per film or tv program in the regular set and possible others in stretch-goal cards. I chose these characters to balance out future ZOMBIES editions. There are so many zombies, I could do a few editions. Something to look forward to... to spread the zombie infection!
Every pledge level will have 1 regular ZOMBIES card set and 1 Kickstarter title card. Pledge levels other than the 'Single Set' will have extra items (see image below). For example, the 'Take 2 Sets' will consist of; 1 ZOMBIES card set, 1 KS title card, and a set of your choosing. It can be another ZOMBIES set or one of the other sets. Any additional sets will be an Add-On. The 'choosing' will happen after the Kickstarter ends, funds are collected, and the survey is emailed out. In the survey, I will ask for your mailing address, your choices, and other FACE CARDS related questions.
The items below can be added on to your initial pledge. Increase your pledge by adding the item amount to your pledge level. If you have already pledged, there should be a button in the side bar that says "manage my pledge." For example, if you're in the U.S. and you pledge at the ALL 6 SETS ($55 + $9 shipping) level and you want to add-on another set ($11) for a friend, you pledge a total amount of $75.
The amounts below include shipping for that add-on item.
Add-On an extra ZOMBIES set or add-on sets that you missed. Be sure to mention A) Zombies B) Vampires, C) Anti-Heroes, D) Creatures, E) Killer Dudes, or F) Killer Babes when the 'Survey' is emailed to you at the end of the Kickstarter.
As a special Kickstarter ONLY reward, the ZOMBIES set will be available as Metal Cards! Get them as a Pledge Level or as an Add-On. No where else will you be able to get this limited feature.
There's only a few original drawings left from all 6 sets. Claim what remain before they're all gone. PLEASE MESSAGE ME DIRECTLY IF YOUR ADD-ON IS FOR ORIGINAL CARD ART. We don't want any one else trying to claim that item. Most of the original art for this set has been claimed. However, there will be a few stretch-goal card art that will be available when announced.
Here are a couple Kickstarter EXCLUSIVES that I have planned to give to you at no additional cost. The more the campaign generates, the more free Stretch Goal items I can offer to every backer. First up, is a 5 card ZOMBIE FIGHTER sub-set! Then, if all goes well, there will be a potential additional set of 5 ADDITIONAL ZOMBIES. Check out the updates for details. Let's see if we reach all of these stretch goals!
Please tell a friend and share on social media!
More editions of FACE CARDS are planned for the future. But, as I've done in the past, I've left that decision up to the backers. Expect a new set every 5-6 months (roughly)! Stay alert!
Check out the Facebook page The Art of Byron Winton to see more of my 4x6 drawings, many of which these cards are based on. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter. Lastly, join me on Patreon to support in the creative process and to sign-up for the popular Card-of-the-Month program.
Thank you for your interest and support!
Risks and challenges
At the time of the launch, I have a few images left to complete for the set. I plan to have them done before the campaign ends. In doing so, the Available Original Art will reflect their completion.
I given myself enough printer time for an end of March delivery for all the regular set backers. However, in the event that I am unable to ship by March, I will inform with a shipping update.
For those of you getting the 4"x6" drawing rewards with your sets, please be patient during the creation of those. I will produce them as quickly as I can without disrupting my current work-load. Depending on the quantity will determine the complete turn around time. I will mail in weekly batches.
I will be adjusting quantities available if necessary. There are ONLY 500 sets being produced... and even less are available for the previous sets.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
