I need funds to manufacture the cards in Taiwan. The minimum order is 5000 packs at around $1.10 each plus port charges in Australia. The selling price is $5.00 with most of the money paying for future orders. I expect to move a lot of units into China and Taiwan. This deck brings card playing into the 21C and will be bigger than Mahjong.
I have already invented and had manufactured a unique deck called Estate Playing Cards which I sell mainly on ebay and Gumtree. Pin Yin is a derivative of this deck. The website is http://vaseycorp.com/estate
There is a temporary site for Pin Yin at http://vaseycorp.com/pinyin
Risks and challenges
Having been through the entire process from design to delivery with Estate Playing Cards, I do not expect any risks beyond shipping delays. The only other concern is theft of intellectual property, but since Australian patents for the original deck ran to over $7000 I have no choice but to take my chances.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
