Printing update

Posted by Max Temkin (Creator)

Dear horrible friends,

It's our pleasure to announce that this morning we placed the order for over one thousand copies of Cards Against Humanity with our printer in China.

After the success of our Kickstarter drive, we had to go back to the drawing board and find a way to make more copies of the game than we had planned for. Although it took a few extra weeks of work, we are really pleased with the improved quality of the game, and we think you'll love it too.

We've partnered with our friends at AdMagic to print Cards Against Humanity on playing card stock with rounded corners and a water-resistant aqueous coating. (We have a sample, and the quality is fantastic. These cards are made to last.) They're also producing a custom box that will hold the cards, and helping us package each set with a rules insert.

AdMagic is based in New Jersey and has over 20 years of experience making games and custom playing cards. They've been very helpful moving Cards Against Humanity to press as quickly as possible, and have agreed to help us keep you updated as printing begins.

There are a lot of factors that will determine when we will get the cards in the U.S. It will take about two weeks to print, and another two to four weeks to ship if everything goes according to plan. We're hoping for a late April ship date, assuming U.S. customs agents have a sense of humor.*

If you've got any questions or feedback, we'd love to hear from you on Kickstarter, on our Facebook page, or at


- The Cards Against Humanity Team

*Please take this shipping estimate with a grain of salt. We're working as hard as we can to get these games as fast as possible, but we're not compromising the quality of the finished product. We know when you see the result you'll be happy that we took the time to do this right. In the mean time, we'll keep updating you every step along the way, and give you our best estimate for when we can send these suckers out.

      Cards Against Humanity will be printed on FSC certified stock.

      Julian - I believe we're using the same recycled card stock as before, but I will look in to this and get back to you before printing begins.

      Nice packaging, though would you mind confirming the card stock you ended up ordering? I want to check the move to China (?) didn't undo your plans to use FSC certified/recycled stock.

      Thanks! We had a lot of fun designing Serious Business Packaging for the game.
