Risks and challenges

We have already created the algorithm for the prints above, they may need some minor tweaking (colours, sizes, margins etc)
We are constantly improving the graphics for the various reward types, so there may be some subtle changes (eg. rings of Saturn, Moon next to Earth...)
We dont expect any major hurdles either with our process or print/delivery
