guru - The only conflict I see is on your box. On the top space, it sorta needs a border. A red border in your case. The design might transfer to the sides which would be very bad. Nobody folds boxes perfectly you know.

Yes, I did feel the same but it came quite well on the prototype decks. These two were done at different times and do not look that bad. Still, I understand that there is going to be a difference when a large order is going to get printed, and I'd need to take care of it before submitting final artwork.

Thanks for picking it out.

All,

Here is the preview link of the campaign page. I appreciate your feedback.


TMCards will be the manufacturer for this deck, and I've already placed an order to get a sample deck. I've seen another deck by them with similar specs, and it looks great. I do understand that manufacturer can make or break the game, so in case the quality lags or there is some issue then I'd be evaluating my decision. Considering that the deck is heavily influenced by Indian Mythology, so I was advised by a few to see if this deck can be printed in India itself. I've got a few prototypes done by MPC on 310 gsm linen and they look great as well. But, I do have more expectations from the improved card stock on which TMCards will be printing the sample. I did talk to 2 project creators, who did their projects with TMC. There were some concerns shared by one and I've been advised by them that those issues are resolved after the upgrade to the machinery.

Please do note that funding goal can vary as I'm still doing calculations and awaiting a few details from both vendors. It also depends on how the sample looks like. I'm yet to hear from the fulfilment partner @ Hong Kong on a few queries, and it looks likely that uncut sheet's reward tier will go down. Similarly, content is being worked upon and will change.

Still, please feel free to share your feedback, comments & suggestions. This deck has been in the works for quite a while now, and my heartfelt thanks to all who looked into this thread and took the time out to share their opinion and feedback.


Regards,
Sunish

A little birdie tells me that the samples are done by TMCards and they look and feel great. I'm waiting to get the deck here with me now.
