I am using an interactive voting poll to get your feedback and will release the most popular cards each week. You get the chance to influence the tee designs by voting at www.thetypedeck.com  

At the end of the project, the 5 most popular designs will be produced and you get to select your tee.

Thank you to the following who helped this project come to life: Adrian Solgaard Janzen, Ashley Burnstad, Will Fahy, Emilio Zand, Kyle Castellani & my iTunes Library. Special thanks to Adam Shears and Claire Rickman for having to put up with me talking about each card for over 5 months!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges for this project are minimal. As the designer, all the creations are my own, thus eliminating many of the risks associated with projects needing multiple vendors or outsourced work.

With an obsession for detail and substantial experience in print production, not only am I familiar with the process, my own quality control standards are extremely high. I have thoroughly planned out the schedules, logistics and deadlines to ensure that our expected delivery dates are met.

I will regularly post updates for you to keep track of every stage of this project coming to life.

I have established great relationships with my card and shirt suppliers. The cards will be made by the United States Playing Card Company and the Tees are also made in the USA.
