About

Stigmata Playing Cards. A Deck of Cards Based on The Signs of Stigmata effects from as far back as the Thirteenth Century.

Hello Kickstarter

For the past few months I've been doing some research on stigmata while I was working on my last deck. I really like some of the art work that I seen out there that had to do with stigmata signs and symbols. I kind of thought to myself instantly to make a deck based on the idea of Stigmata signs. 

Stigmata (singular stigma) is a term used by members of the Christian faith to describe body marks, sores, or sensations of pain in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ, such as the hands, wrists, and feet.The term originates from the line at the end of Saint Paul's Letter to the Galatians where he says, "I bear on my body the marks of Jesus."

Stigmata is the plural of the Greek word στίγμα stigma, meaning a mark, tattoo or brand. Such as might have been used for identification of an animal or slave.

An individual bearing stigmata is referred to as a stigmatic or a stigmatist. Stigmata are primarily associated with the Roman Catholic faith. Many reported stigmatics are members of Catholic religious orders.

Risks and challenges

I dont see many risks and challenges in this project for us other than getting the support from the kickstarter community to help fund the deck. We as a team are fully capable of handling a project like this. Shipping out these decks will not be a problem. We have been in the online retail business for a few years now, so we know our shipping. These decks will take roughly 1 month or so to get printed after this campaign. I will be doing my absolute best to have them to you in november long before christmas.
