After the success of last years original release of the Melies, we have decided to re invent them as the Melies Voyagers. Doing this by re-printing the original space blue color way, along with  a new color way were calling aurora red. This color way will be released in a limited edition run of only 1111, with each deck being individually numbered on the seal which makes this deck very unique and will be sure to become a collectors item.

 Legends Playing Cards Company:

Setting the new industry standard with their Legends #852 deck, Legends Playing Card Company can accomplish many things the United States Playing Card Company cannot; such as ultra-precise printing registration, extreme durability, and the glass-like edges of their signature "Diamond Cut" process. To consistently produce cards of superior quality, LPCC works with highly skilled printers that are willing to re-learn the ropes and expirement with completely new printing advances. Although we see no end to our relationship with the USPC we are excited to work with Lawrence Sullivan, the head of LPCC, with the printing of Voyagers.

Since we are using the LPCC to print the Voyagers, we can print a limited run of 1,111 decks with numbered seals. Of those, only 900 decks of Aurora Red Voyagers will be available on Kickstarter. 100 decks will go into our private reserve, and 111 will be sold through www.LegendsPlayingCards.com. This deck is extremely exclusive, and if there are any decks available after the kickstarter, they will only be available on the Pure Imagination Projects website. Backing this Kickstarter is the only way to guarantee an Aurora Red deck of Voyagers!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges:
Through our first project we learned what to do, and what not to do when doing a playing card project. It's a huge task, but now with our past experience we can make the project runs smoothly as possible.

Below are the biggest thing we are doing for this campaign to ensure this project to be ran as smoothly as possible:

Backerkit: by using Backerkit we will be able to make the shipping process much faster and efficient.

International Orders: For any project international shipping can become quite an issue. To make this easier we are approaching this in an entire new way. Each order that is shipped outside the us will be sent with a tracking code and insurance via USPS. Although this costing more we believe the cost is worth it for the sound of mind knowing that the cards will be delivered to you without us having to resend them.

Fulfillment: For our first project I thought that me and some friends could do fulfillment by ourselves in a couple of days. This was the biggest lesson I learned from my previous project. For this project we will hire a team to work around the clock to get every deck sent out efficiently and properly. We are also doing away with bubble mailers and using only u-line cardboard boxes. By changing the boxes it will ensure that every deck is delivered to you unharmed, unless during delivery it runs past a sharknado or card eating ferrets.
