Upgraded Card Quality
Today marks two weeks since the project launched and nearly the halfway point. I would like to thank everyone who has backed the project so far once again.
Having passed the 300% stretch goal, the project now has enough funding to afford printing through another manufacturer for increased quality. The cards will now be printed on 310 gsm French casino quality stock with a linen finish. I received the prototype deck today, and they look fantastic, and feel pretty comprable to Bicycle brand cards. In addition, the tuck boxes will now be higher quality as well, with a high gloss finish and shrink-wrapped for added protection.
This marks the last of the official stretch goals, though if the project continues to gain more support I'll be looking into adding some extra rewards for backers. I'll be starting work on the new illustration for the Ace of Spades as well as finalizing the pinback buttons within the next week.
Thank you again for all your support on the project,
