About How it all began... Following the footsteps of Captain Kidd
William Kidd is one of the most interesting characters in the history of the English East India Company. The expedition of Captain Kidd to the Indian Ocean has become the stuff of legends. It was this trip that inspired us to create the decks of the "Caribbean Wind".

As the loyal backers of our projects can attest to, we always strive to provide cards of the highest quality.In our new project, "Caribbean Wind", you will find a unique design based on pictures of actual personalities from the Golden Age of Piracy. Fearless captains, successful businessmen and charming ladies depicted on maps will transport you to those halcyon years.

With this booklet, you will get to know in depth the characters depicted on your decks. This is an exclusive item that can not be purchased separately and will be sent to all the backers who pledge more than £27 when backing the project.

Dear friends, we are already at the finish. There is not much left for a single goal, and all our supporters will receive a gift the unique premium deck "Caribbean Wind". Two main decks are printed and soon we will present you a photo and video with the finished product. In our previous projects, supporters often asked about the packaging of decks. Our artists have prepared for you a small comics titled "How It works?"
1. Decks are tested before printing.
2. Decks are printed.
3. Manufacturing of boxes.
4. Packing the decks into boxes, the packs are tightened with a film for additional protection, the boxes are also tightened with a protective film.
*Please pay attention! The protective film is not an element of the decor and must be removed while using the decks.
5. Packed decks are packed in transport packaging and sent to the backers.
*Please pay attention! If you received the packs not in the shipping package, then your parcel was broken by customs or postal service employees. A big request to inform us of all such cases.
Risks and challenges
This is our fourth project at Kickstarter and we have a solid idea of how everything works. We are confident that this Kickstarter campaign will be an even smoother process than our last projects.
We have a wide experience in manufacturing and shipping and if everything goes smoothly, all backers should receive the decks and add-ons on time. However, unforeseen situations can always occur, so we have to take into account the risks in manufacturing and transportation.
We took into account all the feedback of the backers from previous projects, fine-tuned the schedule and printing process, and worked hard on the logistics.
We ensure that all backers will get their rewards.
Printing decks of playing cards is a standard procedure, but there are always risks. Please note that all of the above files are 3D renderers and the final colors can only be changed for the better. We also want to note that the transport packaging (box and cellophane in which the decks come) are not part of the decks design but are used as a protection against moisture and damage, they must be removed the factory cellophane upon receipt.
It is crucial that you enter your address correctly in the survey after the project has ended. We do everything to send packs to supporters on time, but some decks can have an unexpectedly long delivery status and / or customs processing. We need to ask for your understanding, that it can (in rare cases) take more time, from the time of dispatch, to the actual delivery to the recipient. We can not be responsible for the work of local postal services. Thank you.
