Risks and challenges

All of the artwork is already done and ready for submission. Many of the risks and challenges stem from production and shipping. This is my third Kickstarter and fifth time printing with our partner factory. I've properly calculated and compensated for these two things to ensure that my backers will get their project within a timely manner.

The producers of these cards will be with The US Playing Card Company and the shipping services will be with USPS. I have produced decks and fulfilled large scale orders with both these partners before. Thanks to our previous history with these companies with 3 other runs, any unexpected hiccups that occur should remain minimal. Production takes around 6-8 weeks permitted that there are no intervening holidays. Fulfillment for international orders will be with Gambler's Warehouse.
