About

About the Project

  • Printed CMYK full bleed / Classic Finish 
  • Tuck box includes pattern printed on inside    
  • Stretch goals – red foil stamping for tuck box

The EERIES ~ inspired by a childhood love for the dark and whimsical.

As a kid, I was captivated by the dark storytelling of John Bellairs. Riddled with mystery and laced with a sense of dread, his novels had the perfect accompaniment of Edward Gorey's timeless, pen-and-ink illustrations. My love for the macabre continues and now, we venture to bring back some nostalgia by creating something that would embody the creepy with the cute – suitable for kids and adults alike. 

We bring you the EERIES ~ we hope you enjoy their company as much as we do.

Design Approach

A blending of illustration, graphic design, and storytelling: we decided to take a simpler, minimalistic approach – weaving the cards together with the use of illustrations and small narratives to give it a childlike playfulness, but yet keeping a dark overall. The crisscrossing of diagonal lines help divide the space while simulating the hands of a clock.

The Classic Finish has a great snap and will allow for smoother handling. 

Be careful how you play your cards, don't end up breaking your own heart.

Available only to USA & Canada, shipped via FEDEX. These posters will be sent out separately from the decks. Shipping begins 2-4 weeks from when the campaign ends. 

NOTE*** If you have made an ADD-ON for posters, please email us so we can keep a record. Thx!~ 

P.S.

Printing ~ Classic Finish is currently out of stock until late December so we have factored some extra time into the scheduling. We will always try to inform Backers with issues that may affect the deck's quality.

Timing ~ Having April 2016 seems like a long ways but this is the schedule:

  • end of campaign, KS requires 2 weeks to transfer funds 
  • 1 month for preliminary proofs 
  • 1 month for hardcopy proofs
  • 1 month for printrun
  • 1-1.5 month for freight forwarding
  • we have allowed some buffer time, delivery is expected to be March/April 2016

Fulfillment ~ We will not be tackling this ourselves and intend to use a fulfillment center (TBD) to ship out all the decks. The printrun will need to be freight forwarded and we anticipate shipping to Backers in March/April. We will do our best to keep you up-to-date with any changes in the scheduling.

Funding ~ The minimum of 1,000 decks is needed to print with LPCC. This is by no means an easy task. So every pledge is going to count!

Risks and challenges

Although this is our first project, we've been Backers ourselves and understand how important it is to be able to track a campaign's progress. We will aim to provide regular updates, keeping Backers well informed. Problems can arise during the course of any project but we will do our best to resolve any issues to prevent further delays. Completed artwork will be passed onto LPCC once funding has been secured.

If you have any questions, please contact us and we'll do our best to address them. Thanks!
