Now that Chinese New Year is wrapping up, we wanted to provide an update on production status and share some tentative dates regarding freight/fulfillment. Production paused for a short time to celebrate the Year of the Pig, but the Panda team is back at work on Campy Creatures and Control. Mass Production should finish by the end of March and should be on a boat ~ 2 weeks after that. It's about 4-6 weeks once on the boat to fulfillment (+/- 2 weeks - depending on geography) which puts fulfillment starting middle of June, hopefully sooner. Along those lines, we are pleased to announce that we have locked in fulfillment with Quartermaster Logistics. We learned a lot from our last campaign with them and are confident they can help us get Campy Creatures into your hands quickly and securely.
In a previous update, we showed off some sample materials for the Control 2nd Edition tuck box. The box showed signs of wear on the seams and we have been looking at ways to ensure this wouldn't happen. Ultimately, we decided to change the Control box back to a 2 piece box. It will be roughly the same size as the tuck box and will promote the longevity of the product.
PLAYING CARDS and USPCC
Additionally, we has been working to get the Campy Playing cards up to our standards. While we were really pleased with how the glow-in-the-dark card backs looked when we received the pre-production copy, the ink hasn't held up well with use. As such, we have removed the glow-in-the-dark ink from the card backs. This decision has allowed us to move manufacturing to USPCC. USPCC is well known for the quality of their playing cards, in fact, they manufactured a few decks that inspired us to design our own.
