INFO x AND x DETAILS
Welcome to my first kickstarter and thank you for your interest in my project!!
The idea of a tarot deck based on the series Hunter X Hunter had been on my mind since I finished watching the anime for the first time, but it wasn't until about a year later, after I rewatched the series, that I found the inspiration to finally start illustrating my ideas. I've been interested in divination, specifically tarot reading for about 4 years and I was drawn to the idea of a HXH deck because it has such a wide range of complex characters. Originally, this project was intended as a way to help me learn the major arcana cards, but I ended up receiving a lot of support for the project and now here I am!
The reward will include 3 things:
- The deck of 22 cards printed in full color on 300gsm smooth finish cardstock. According to the manufacturer, this is "professional quality card stock with blue core". Blue core refers to an opaque "core" between the front and back of the card which limits the light that can shine through the card, and also makes the card stiffer and stronger.
- A small booklet containing a brief explanation of each card and why I chose the character(s) on each card. These booklets will be handmade and simple because I REALLY wanted to include them but didn't want to charge extra for them.
- A randomized colored 4"x6" organza pouch to hold the deck and booklet. I personally like having a pouch for my own tarot decks, and I really like the color options of organza pouches as well as the fact that they're translucent and you can see the artwork through the fabric.
ARTWORK x AND x PREVIEWS
If you would like to see more images of the cards or contact me directly, please visit my twitter, @tqbhc where I post all of my artwork!
TIMELINE x AND x PLEDGING
The campaign will be running for 30 days. Afterwards, if I've met my goal, I expect ordering the decks and pouches will take about 2-3 weeks. I estimate that I would start shipping the decks out during April.
A pledge of $20 covers the cost of printing/having the decks shipped to me and the cost of ordering the pouches and packaging. Shipping within the US costs $4 while international is $14.
If you're unfamiliar with kickstarter, your pledge can be cancelled at any time before the campaign ends. You'll only be charged at the end of the campaign, and if I don't reach my goal of $600, you won't be charged at all.
Risks and challenges
-The colors on the final prints of the cards will differ slightly from what you see on your screen. Some of the colors print dimmer than they appear, but the color quality of the cards is still very vibrant. A few modifications were made to the colors after I received my sample deck, and the images above are the finalized designs.
-Delays in the manufacturing process could always happen, if anything comes up I will be posting updates here and on my twitter.
