Hanami Deck Production & Fulfillment Timeline

Posted by IndianWolf Studios LLC (Creator)

We have received the physical Hanami Deck proofs from Legends and have given them our approval for production.







The physical proof took much longer than expected, but they look and feel great! Unfortunately, due to the holiday rush, production of the decks will likely take longer than originally expected. Legends currently estimates that production will be completed by late January. After that, the cards will take a 4-8 week boat ride to reach Gambler’s Warehouse for fulfillment to begin. This means that our estimated fulfillment date will also be later than originally expected (estimated April). We apologize for the delay and thank you for your understanding.

Rulebook Fulfillment

We are happy to hear that some of you are already receiving your rulebooks and are pleased with the size and quality of the book!

AU & NZ Backers: Production at the AU printing facility takes a little longer than the other facilities so your books should be shipping out this week.

For all other backers, your rulebooks are in the mail and should be arriving soon!

      The decks will be shipped by Gambler’s Warehouse. They specialize in shipping playing cards and have many years of experience.

      We’re sorry to hear that your book was dented in the mail. The shipping was fulfilled directly by the book printer and all of the rulebooks we saw were packaged well. Unfortunately, dents can happen with paperback books because of their size, weight, and soft edges. If you press the rulebook flat under something ridged and heavy for a few days the dents should improve.

      Thank you for being understanding. We hope you enjoy the rulebook and create your own creases and dents from your extensive use and enjoyment. (^_^)
