Thank u for the update
Just wanted to let everyone know that the decks are being printed this month so we are just waiting on a shipping confirmation and delivery window estimate. More to come as we hear from the printers!!
@ Maureen Ahearn - THANKS! We are very excited as well! It makes this first printing that much more special :-)
I just saw this about the US Games version, that's exciting! Still thrilled to be getting the KS edition, though. Congrats on US Games picking it up, that's wonderful!
@ Jasper Meer - thanks for backing the project. The US GAMES version will be different than the KS version. The card stock, artwork, card edges, etc will be the same but the card back color, box design, and booklet will be different. The KS version will also be numbered / limited and signed as stated earlier. They will also come with the exclusive postcards, campaign giveaways also stated earlier.
I am curious about the specification differences between the ks version and the US Games version. For instance, the differences in card stock, finish, gilding, size, corners, and anything else. What will make the ks cards physically better than the US games production run?
Just to be clear - US Games did NOT print our decks. US Games did not produce our deck. US Games has chosen to produce a mass market version of our deck as they have done for so many other artists. This mass market deck version from US Games is not the deck that backers will receive. The fact that US Games has chosen to produce a mass market version of this deck is a good thing for everyone - now this deck will be highly sought after as the limited run 1st edition of the deck. We are very excited about this development and hope everyone else will be as well.
I appreciate the offer Matt, but no I would not like a refund. I choose to honer my pledge being that I feel it is to support a project and encourage the artist, more so than a purchase of goods.
I accept the the different book is commemorative of the print run, but still this is a different thing to being a different edition.
I'm failing to understand how you thought it wasn't related, its very related. Especially if the decks are being issued by the publisher.
Regardless I'd like to congratulate you for being picked up. This is great news for you once the initially dust settles. I hope they consider the oracle to follow!, that would be cool.
@ Tammy Patterson - Not sure if you have ever purchased a soft cover book as opposed to a hard cover but they are the same book inside. The hard cover is in a different casing (some times with a special cover) and are recognized as the 1st printing because of the limited nature of the item. The publisher does not wish to produce a new or different book but rather wants to reprint the same content in a cheaper format so that it can be sold at a cheaper price point. When you say "a different printing of the same deck isnt a different edition" you would be incorrect. Backers were not told of the signing with US Games because it was not related to this campaign. It was a personal decision that I made to be able to share the deck I created with a much larger audience. I would be happy to issue you a refund if you like.
Just to be sure.. a different printing of the same deck isnt a different edition, I hope there will be more than a slight variation to the card back other wise Im just paying a premium price _+ international postage for a standard with an autograph.
I wish you had let your backers know of this instead of finding out on the grape vine.
Im thrilled for artists that have gone on to mass production after their indies, I have a number of them and their indies do have value for a collector. But Im reminded of another where backers received a mass market deck, lol, even before backers and really left me feeling defrauded. Cheers to your success of being in the first group and not the second
@ Tammy Patterson - Yes, the mass produced very from US Games will definitely be different than the one here on this KS campaign. Our version will have a completely different box, booklet, and a slight variation on the card back color. Our version is the 1st limited run printing of the deck. Each deck will be signed and numbered. And you will also be getting all of the goodies from the campaign (postcards, booklets and prints if you ordered them). Basically our version here will be the keeper version that is no longer produced and the US Games version is the mass market version you can use and not feel bad breaking in the cards in ;-)
I just saw that US games are releasing this in the new year.. lol.. I do hope we get ours a couple of months before the mass production. Can you tell us how this will be different to the mass production ?.. Please tell me we will not be receiving the mass production. !
Thank you! This is very exciting!
@ Tammy Patterson and @ Sara - Please check the most recent updates on the campaign.
Are there any updates from the printer? Still hoping for delivery by the end of the year.
so October has come and gone.. I do hope November sometime happens
No new updates from the printer yet. We've put in a request to them regarding the progress of the deck. We will definitely notify everyone as soon as we hear back. Thanks!
Since it's been two months since the last update, I'm sure many of us are wondering if there's an expected delivery date yet? Thanks.
I hope the deck will get to us before Christmas! I'm a zillion% excited. Count me in the never want a refund camp!
@ bridgett- of course! Just message me your new address and we will make a note of it
Hey Matt, My address has recently changed!! Is there a way to update my shipping address so that the deck doesn't get shipped to my old address? I am so excited!!! Thank you!!
@Thawatchai Thawornwong - As stated in the updates the decks are being processed by the printers now and should arrive later this year. Sorry for the delay. We have issued you a full refund. Thank you for your support.
I would like to ask that your project is still running, isn't it. Delay I can accept but if the project cannot be done, I would like to refund. Please tell me you are still working this project.
@Jennifer Forness - refund issued. Thank you for your continued support
Consider the nebulous and ever changing date for this to be delivered, I'd like a refund, if possible.
@Lisa Negus- just issued a full refund to you. Thank you for the support.
Worried that this was due to be shipped may 2017, then was told July 2017 now being told fall. Sounds like a problem fulfilling orders. How do people get a refund?
@Trena Labowski Hi Trena!
No, the copyright will not be on the back card design. It was added here for copyright protection :-)
I had a question regarding the beautiful card back design. I know you said the over all vote was to go with a design that would be reversible. I love the design you have created. My question is though, will your trademark appear on the cards like in the image? This will completely remove the "reversible" aspect of the backs if so. Just wondering.
I made a statement criticizing Matt's" choice" of backs. Because I said something he didn't like, he is choosing not to honor my pledge. Very unprofessional.
Would it be possible to, somehow, add a print to my pledge?
Will we be given the opportunity to purchase the coloring book or should we go to that particular kickstarter.
Also, will the coloring book be delivered before December 24th?
¡Diviértete con este proyecto. Lo espero con ansias!
¡Que el cielo te bendiga!
