Hello everyone. I hope everyone that celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful holiday. I just wanted to give you guys a quick production update. Unfortunately, we have been running into some issues with the holographic foiling on the US deck that is causing the cards to be marked more than I want. (Marked means that you can see an impression, from the foil from the back side of the card, enabling people that know about it to tell which card it is simply by looking at the back of the card. Because the foiling is only on three cards (KoS, QoS, JoS), it is proving to be a small detail that is really not worth the trouble it is causing. I really have been striving for this deck to be top notch and made the decision to take that element out. Sadly because of this delay, the cards will not be ready for fulfillment this month as initially estimated. I apologize for the delay but am confident that it is the right decision for the integrity and playability of the deck. I know that you will be so happy with the final product. Other than that one issue everything is going very well and things are looking awesome.
Thank you so much for your patience and support. During the campaign, not much of the Chinese deck was finished. But all the art for the Chinese deck is finished. It took me longer to figure out all of the design and structure for the Chinese deck as the art is so different than that of US money, with which I am most familiar. I am so pleased with how they turned out and was so refreshed to do something so different than my previous currency decks.
I also apologize for the length of time between updates. I only wanted to update you guys when I had new news or something substantial to report. I will keep you guys updated as we get closer to fulfillment and if any other issues arise.
