A set of Custom Trading Cards covering the terminology used by geocachers around the world.

Hello Kickstarter, we are back again! After a very successful first project  (Geocaching Trading Cards - History Series), we are excited to announce a new project - the Geocaching Trading Cards - Terminology A-Z Series. Do not worry, we are not done with the History Series. As a matter of fact, if we reach a stretch goal in this project, we will create some additional cards for the History Series as well. The project is designed around starting with a small funding goal in mind, with the hopes of reaching stretch goals to fund additional cards. This series will consist of a minimum of 5 trading cards related to terminology used in geocaching around the word (terms such as Muggle, Swag, Geosense, Nano, Bushwack, ROT13, FlashMob, Hitchhiker, Virtual, Waypoint, etc.). If the project raises additional funds beyond the project's goal, then additional terminology cards will be created. Maybe we can do all 26 letters in the alphabet or more than one card for a particular letter?

Breakdown of costs

Art work (5 cards @ ~ 32.00 each) = $160.00

Printing (5 cards @ ~110.00 each) = $550.00

Kickstarter & Amazon Payment fees = $71.00

U.S. Shipping & Handling fees

If the project funds early, we will not wait until the project ends, we will get started as early as possible (just as we did with the Geocaching History Series project) so that we can get the cards to you as soon as possible after the project ends.

Remember, the idea here is to start small and hope for over funding so that we can reach stretch goals (which is where you will reap the benefits). If stretch goals are reached, you pay nothing more, yet you receive lots more.

Stretch Goals! 

For every $200.00 raised beyond the funding goal, an additional card will be made.

$1600.00 = total of 10 cards (If we reach $1600 then 10 cards will be created, not 5)

$2400.00 = total of 15 cards - (If we reach $2400.00 then 10 new Terminology A-Z cards & 5 new Geocaching History cards will be created - 1st International EarthCache Day, 1st International EarthCache Mega Event, 1st Annual Geolympix, 1st Virtual Cache, & 1st Webcam

Note: Breakdown of costs listed above changes based on new stretch goals. Rewards also change based on pledge amount (anyone pledging 20.00 or more will receive the new stretch goal rewards for no additional costs). No new additional shipping fees will apply for outside of U.S. Random cards for rewards will be chosen from these lists: Geocaching History Series, Blueline GeocachersFTF Geocachers Series II and Series I. If stretch goals are not reached, but the amount falls somewhere in the middle, we will add hardcover sleeves to the cards.

In order to reach these stretch goals, we need your help in advertising this project. Please post it on your Facebook pages, your local geocaching organization's forums and Facebook pages, and any other social media you may be using (Google+, Twitter, YouTube, etc).

As we have done in the past, we will randomly donate some remaining card sets to geocaching events to be used as raffle, door, and game prizes.

The geocaching trading card community is growing fast, there are now over 300 unique personal trading cards, a Facebook page, and a brand new website.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We do not predict any risks with this project. We have been creating personal geocaching trading cards since 2008 and we have had no issues with the previous Kickstarter project. About the only challenge we see is "getting the word out". More geocachers need to become aware of this project and Kickstarter in general - so please pass it on!
