Project Update: Primordial Two-Way Double Sided Art Prints are now available to add individually!

Posted by Costa Pantazis (Creator)

Hello everyone,

Just a quick update to inform you all that the Two-Way Double Sided Art Prints are now be available to add individually to your pledges as opposed only being available previously in the current sets of four listed on the main campaign page. 

There are 16 to choose from so plenty of choices for everyone - and you can mix and match as you please!

NOTE: If you increase your pledge for four or more prints the listed discount postage rate will automatically be applied to the total on your BackerKit survey which follows the campaign. 


I just wanted to do a quick update to outline as well about the specifications for these add-ons and what makes them something a little more special in terms of quality as opposed to normal printing.

Card Stock: 16pt card stock is one of the most luxurious available paper for full colour printing hence my choice to use it on both the art prints and the posters. It provides the superior thickness for printed material. 16pt paper looks and feels much more expensive and deluxe as opposed to standard 100 lb gloss text paper. You can see the comparisons on these two short videos:

Limited Edition Numbering: As these are limited edition items as well, each and every print will be individually numbered using the Variable Data Printing method. VDP is a method of printing that uses software to change the output of a digital printing press to personalise each printed piece with unique information from a spreadsheet or database. In our case I will be applying limited edition numbering to each print in similar numerical fashion to the seals on the tuck boxes of the Primordial decks. 

Gilded Edges: The other benefit of using a higher quality and thicker card stock is it allows for a very special addition. No doubt a method all you will be familiar with. All the art prints listed above will have gilded edges as well. As you can see from the examples below done in similar fashion these will certainly give the prints brilliant and vibrant colours from all sides.

Finish: All the Primordial Art Prints and Posters in the campaign will have soft touch finishing applied. In printing, the term “soft touch” is used as a reference to any finishing method that adds a velvety-soft feel to print materials printing where distinctive qualities are important.

Something a little bigger, maybe?

Did you know that the larger Primordial Gig posters available in the campaign as add-ons will also be finished to the same specifications above as the art prints?  Check them out!

How to add the above items to your existing pledges is very simple. Simply select the manage your pledge option and a separate page will open up with a list of reward tiers including the current one your have selected, whichever it may be. In the box which shows the total amount pledged simply calculate and adjust this total amount by adding any of the amounts listed above for the individual prints. 

Here is a small video guide for anyone that needs it: Video

As before if you are unsure and would like me to check the maths before you make any changes relating to the above, simply message me a list of what you have already pledged towards and the total you currently have, a list of what you would like to add and I will double check everything is correct or provide you with the amount you need to change to.
