Risks and challenges

After producing 10 decks of cards with the United States Playing Card Company (USPC), we've got all the logistics figured out. We learned a lot during our first few Kickstarter campaigns and at this point the process is a well-oiled machine.

We'll be partnering with Art of Play and Keen Hong to handle all order fulfillment. They are pros at shipping logistics and specialize in the playing card industry.

Proofs have already been finalized and approved with our deck and tuckbox printing is already underway, so you can expect to receive your rewards without any extended wait times after the campaign ends.

If you have any concerns or questions, please send us an email at ace@vandacards.com and we'll get back to you ASAP.
