Tally Ho is a brand that is more than 100 years old and it is my privilege to create my third Tally Ho deck. The Emerald Tally Ho deck is the second deck in my my limited edition Tally Ho series. The first deck, the Scarlett Tally Ho, was inspired by my youngest daughter who is also named Scarlett. The Emerald Tally Ho deck is inspired by my oldest daughter Claire. The Emerald theme comes from Claire's birthstone. Starting with the same basic design structure, as the Scarlett Tally Hos, the Emerald has a completely redesigned back and tuck. The same limited edition courts have been used with new design and color styles to match the new Emerald theme.

Risks and challenges

A playing card project is a big task. There are so many elements that have to work together in order for a playing card project to function smoothly and succeed with satisfied backers with decks of cards in their hands.

The Emerald Tally Ho deck will be my 11th playing card project and 13th project on Kickstarter. I have learned so much from my past Kickstarters. I have learned some valuable lessons of what TO do, and what NOT to do.

Below are the biggest three hurdles with any playing card project, and how I plan to overcome them:

1. Keeping your rewards & add on system simple and easy to understand.

As I did with both my Federal 52 Part II, Sherlock Holmes, Independence, Scarlett Tally Ho & Army projects I have given the pledge tiers Alphanumeric labels to help you understand what you are pledging for. Beside every pledge tier there is a letter/number key that you can match up with a graphic that will give you a visual representation of what is included in that pledge tier.

2. Keeping International Shipping transparent and easy to understand.

I have received my share of bumps and bruises in the past trying to figure out the most transparent and understandable method of communicating to international backers how much to add for Int. shipping. Int. Shipping is expensive, there is no way around it. I ship all of my deck using the USPS. It is not my intention to try and profit form international shipping I'm only trying not to go broke from it. I am totally transparent with shipping costs and have included an average breakdown of how much international shipping costs both you and me, so that all the information is out on the table, so you can be a well informed backer.

3. Fulfillment is by for the most difficult process of any playing card project.

With my first Federal 52 Project I got my hands calloused by tackling the fulfillment of 3000 orders by myself. With my second project, Federal 52 Part II, I ventured out and gave a fulfillment company a shot at taking on the challenge. I have learned that playing cards and the shipping of them is an art in and of itself. Something that is VERY important to me is that the same amount of care and detail is given to the packing and shipping of my playing cards as is going into the design. Because of this fact I have recently formed a company that specializes in nothing but shipping playing cards and add ons for Playing Card projects. My fulfillment company is called Kings Wild Fulfillment and it has a full time staff that is dedicated to handling, packing and fulfilling you rewards with a level of excellence that you expect from anything with the Kings Wild logo on it.

As of now Kings Wild Fulfillment has successfully fulfilled four playing card projects with over 10000 unique orders.
