Frequently Asked Questions
This is very frustrating. I wrote 3 times to Kickstarter support center. There is no way for me to use USD in my campaign. Kickstarter forces me to use Swedish Crowns even if I produce in the USA. Just because I am based in Stockholm, there is no way for me to set USD as currency.
As every currency, there will be minor fluctuations. I will monitor this fluctuation during the campaign.
If you do not hear of economy collapse at the news, everything should be fine for these 30 days.
You can see that in every reward I put the equivalent in UDS and it is set on Feb.16 2015 ($1 = kr ~8,4).
When you pledge you will see the amount in your currency, calculated by Kickstarter.
Feel free to check online the actual currency exchange rate SEK/USD or your local currency.
Once the campaign is started, I cannot change the texts in the rewards. Therefore I cannot update the conversion in USD, that's why i put a ~ in front of it, it means "more or less".Last updated:
Shipping costs means not just the stamp:
It means: boxes/padded envelopes, paper-tubes, bubble wrapping, tape, labels, dunnage, storage, handling and stamps.
Even though I am based in Stockholm and I manage the project from here, all parcels (decks and uncut sheets) are packed and sent from Lake Michigan Mailers Inc.
I used their fulfillment service for my previous two campaigns (Requiem and Heretic).
USPS (United States Postal Service) does the delivery, tracking number is included by default for domestic delivery only.
International shipping has no tracking number, unless upon specific request and adding extra shipping costs..
The international tracking number is extremely expensive, give a try on www.usps.com and check how much it will cost you.
To send 1lb (0,45 kg) with USPS to another country costs $40 (handling included).
During a campaign I tend to release special items that are prepared in Stockholm, and sent with the Swedish postal service (no tracking).
Same as USPS, the international tracking number is extremely expensive.
To send up to 1kg (2,2lb) with tracking, it costs 325SEK (~$40).
I know it is crazy, but that´s the fares of the national postal services, both Swedish and American.Last updated:
Since I am based in Stockholm, I cannot sign the decks. The decks are produced in the US and sent from the US. I will get a small quantity here in stockholm (around 100 pieces for myself: the private reserve).
Gran Riserva (italian) / Grand Reserve (english) / Grand Reserva (spanish) appeared as limited reward in my previous campaigns. It is a sealed deck, with my signature, a limited number, a special seal/certificate and a wax seal.
Even for No.17 there will be a Gran Riserva, but I renamed it "Crown Edition". More will be revealed when released probably when the campaign is half way.Last updated:
No.17 has 2 versions. The first one was released in august 2014 as promotional deck for cardlauncher.com
V.01 is quite different: black and white courts, 55 cards, different tuck-box, different aces, printed by MakePlayingCards in 525 units.
No.17 V.02 is the one displayed in this campaing. Improved, enhanced, and printed by USPCC with Bicycle brand.
To see how the previous version looks, go to www.stockholm17.comLast updated:
1. Delivery scheduled for July2015, but I am confident that it will be before. It depends by USPCC.
2. I tend to reply quite soon, but remember that I am 6 to 9 hours ahead and I might be sleeping if I do not reply. :)
3. USD-SEK fluctuation does not depend on me. The price is in Swedish Crowns, the USD conversion might be imprecise.
4. I back a lot of project with my personal account called "Stockholm17", so zero backed only on this one.Last updated:
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
Fine silver, for example 99.9% pure silver, is generally too soft for producing functional objects; therefore, the silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while preserving the ductility and appearance of the precious metal. Other metals can replace the copper, usually with the intention of improving various properties of the basic sterling alloy such as reducing casting porosity, eliminating firescale, and increasing resistance to tarnish.
These replacement metals include germanium, zinc and platinum, as well as a variety of other additives, including silicon and boron.Alloys such as argentium silver have appeared in recent decades.

The sterling silver used for the Ace of Spades is 100% Nickel-freeLast updated:
