About

The Guardian Legends Kickstarter Limited Edition Playmat is a 14" x 24" x 1/16" thick gaming playmat designed by Keung Lee. GL1/01 carries the name title "Guardian Legends" as it is the debut playmat design for the series.

A playmat is a gaming accessory used for table top games, primarily for card games. They offer a clean and smooth surface that your cards can gracefully glide across. Playmats are comparable to gaming mouse pads, as they are both made of heat-resistant polyester with non-slip rubber bases.

"Guardian Legends" (GL1/01 KS) will be a Kickstarter exclusive!

Along with the playmat there is a trading card and button in production. Though I will be updating this page as often as possible, instant updates can be obtained via my Facebook and Twitter.

Guardian Legends hosts years of my creative works and weaves them into one fantastical world. Each character and creature you see in the design has a story and lore that has been in development for the past several years of my creative career. In most cases, the worlds I attempted to conjure would grow too big and I'd find myself inadvertently overwhelmed by the breadth of my story.

In other words, I ended up with a hodgepodge of fantasy story arcs that I just couldn't mesh together. So I'd set them aside, rework them from time to time and gradually, eventually, it started to click. The end result will begin with this series of playmat illustrations!

Funding Composition

The established goal takes into consideration the initial bulk print runs for the playmats, bulk printing costs for the trading cards and buttons, shipping and handling and a small buffer of a couple hundred on the off-chance that there are any complications.

With this being my first Kickstarter campaign, I wanted to start small and begin a project I felt confident in being able to fulfill without any problems. If we end up surpassing our goal I do have a couple stretch goals in mind.

Risks and challenges

There is little risk with this project as the hard part has already been completed. I've poured my heart and all my artistic talent into the design of "Guardian Legends", and I hope you enjoy the result of my endeavor. My initial fear was that I wouldn't be able to find a printer that could produce a quality playmat.

Before the thought of creating my own playmat even crossed my mind I had heard of Inked Playmats reputation for creating premium quality custom-printed playmats. Prior to starting up this Kickstarter I sent a submission of my own in beforehand and received a remarkable playmat, printed and delivered much sooner than I ever expected.

I should have no problems shipping out the trading cards and buttons in mid-December, but I have taken into account that there could be printing and shipping delays with the playmats themselves. I've set a one month buffer in anticipation for this, and estimate that the playmats will be shipped by February 2015.

I have full confidence that I can fulfill the rewards my supporters have pledged for!
