Introduction. 

Royalty. Dinosaur royalty. Last week archaeologists in Argentina uncovered the fossils of Titanosaurus, the largest dinosaur ever found. To celebrate this discovery, we present to you Royal Dinosaur Playing Cards, a deck of cards presenting dinosaurs with the nobility and prestige they deserve.

NEW - Elite Sleeves!

Dinosaurs not aristocratic enough for you? Well, we know how to fix that. Introducing Elite Dinosaur Sleeves, an add-on that will just add to the eliteness of your deck. Each sleeve is hand crafted and uses heavy cardstock and metallic gold foil to make your deck even fancier than before.

Want Elite Dino Sleeves for your deck? Here's how to get them:

Add $4 to your pledge for each sleeve you'd like OR add $12 to put sleeves on every deck in your order (no limit)! 

Details.

We hope you will make this print of 500 decks a reality. Each deck is given the utmost care. Heavy 310g stock, linen finish and trusted printing will be used, producing high quality cards. Each card is detailed and features original dino-artwork. We can't wait to get them into your hands for a closer look!

Every deck will come with a signed certification card -- certifying the deck's place and number among the 500 deck print -- and a draft card, a hand drawn pencil concept for a possible different style we were thinking about.

 We will be posting the Aces as the project progresses -- we hope you'll like them! We will be using the MPC to print our cards, we have seen for ourselves the quality they deliver, and are excited to be using them.

Fancy rewards.

We've got a slew of fancy rewards to pledge for. Each of them is hand-made with high quality material. Check them out!

What's this? A framed tile? You were thinking about a print of one of the cards but you thought, "It's royal, but not royal enough -- I prefer my artwork to be waterproof!" Well this is the thing for you! Any card of your choosing printed on a ceramic tile and framed in a nice cherry frame.

 Need to plot your next dino adventure? What better way to do it than in dino notebooks? The "Deck + Notebooks" reward tier gets you a pack of four.

Risks and challenges

There is a strong community of dino-deniers out there who would like to see a deck such as this hidden from the public. Don't worry. We are well able to deal with such treachery and will work to assure that -- if we reach our goal -- we will provide each backer with excellent quality and communication.

We have a printer ready-to-print and have many years experience fulfilling orders and shipping products. The only piece of the puzzle left is to reach the goal. Thanks for your support, we hope you enjoy the deck as much as we do!
