About

The history behind the Cuff brand goes back several years and has some wild stories along the way!  Started back in 2010, Cuff was created by Amil Barnes for a way for his friends to have a fun activity to take part in as he cooked for his apartment gatherings.  Initially called "Love Jones", it was in 2015 that Amil changed the name to "Cuff".  Still the Cuff brand only consisted of One Deck and Dozens of Random Questions.

Every party Amil went to and crashed with the Cuff card game made that party 10x better! People kept asking, "WHERE DO I GET THESE CARDS FROM?" and "I NEED THESE FOR MY GAME NIGHT!"  The game was a big hit, and we've been working on it ever since.

So after years of wondering how do I mass produce the Cuff cards, ordering dozens of sample decks and wondering will people even buy them, Amil stepped out on faith and made his first order of 100 decks in September 2017.  

THEY SOLD OUT IN 2 WEEKS!  Amil was surprised to see how people he didn't even now gravitated towards the Cuff cards and expressed how much they loved them.  He made another order of 100 decks and they sold out quick too!  

Now, we're excited to sell the Cuff cards as it was always meant to be played - as a high-quality, professionally-produced, boxed product.

We are raising money through Kickstarter for:

  • New Two-Piece Packaging Boxes
  • 200 Question Cards
  • 20-card Booster Packs for Colleges, LGBTQ, & Married Couples
  • Bigger Order Quantity
  • CE and CPSIA Testing for mass retail spaces

We've spent months doing the research we needed to price and print the new Cuff playing decks. The minimum amount of money we need for printing is $12,000, which we're raising with this Kickstarter project.

Printing & Packaging — 50% will go towards the printing and production of the Cuff Two-Part Box.

R&D —20% will fund the cost of Research & Development to scale our game cards to a commercially viable product for Mass market retail spaces

SHIPPING — 15% will cover the cost of shipping the packaged cards to our DC Production office

CONSULTING AND LEGAL FEES — 5% will be needed to cover legal and consulting fees

KICKSTARTER & AMAZON FEES — 10% of the funding is automatically deducted by Kickstarter (5%) and Amazon (Credit Card Fees)

Risks and challenges

One challenge we have always encountered with past printing companies is the quality of our boxes the cards come in. They haven't been the best in our opinion. So one of our main goals is to make sure the packaging is exceptional and the cards inside are flawless. We also want to make sure they are waterproof because we do know most of our customers play Cuff at social gatherings where cocktails are arrived.

Another challenge we are prepared to face is the turnaround time for the card decks. There aren't many printing companies in the USA that print at a great quality and are affordable. Most printing companies are based in China, so we know turnaround time can be between 6-8 weeks once cards proofs are finalized.

We plan on keeping you all entertained with our podcast and even creating early digital versions that you all can download on our website with your early pledges.
