Let's see, some random fun factuals:

- In the roughly 9 hours since I opened things, there have been about 7,000 pages loaded on the site
- Aurum has taken in, during those 9 hours, roughly what the Tendril Kickstarter did in 6-7 days
- As you would expect, the Sovereign edition is most popular, followed by the White Gold which is selling vey quickly. The rare items are selling well considering their price point.
- Right at 11am, the site was sending out about 30 pages per second which is a lot for my tiny site
- There has been a consistent 8-30 users on the site at any one time since 11am

Some international people had a few issues, and some people seem to have some mistmaches in their Paypal but on the whole it's working pretty well. It's always scary to launch something completely new!

Thanks to everyone that got some, I can't wait to get these out to you all.

Tendrils are still my Favourite! Is there any other variations of the Tendrils?

Good luck though!


Just tried again and shipping was down to $13 so placed my order!

This should explain things: http://encarded.com/our-decks/

In short, different tuck boxes, special seals, very limited numbers.

Almost certainly I did! The result of writing things late at night in a rush. :)

Thanks, I'll fix it.

I just wanted to respond from the purple decks thread without stirring up the hornets.

I actually took a closer look at them, and ended up buying two. Though I was curious, would you ever consider doing a purple porper clip or something of the like for Aurum?

Thanks Atemus. I haven't looked into the Porper (yet) but have thought about it. It's a great accessory and getting some in purple and gold with engraving could be very exciting. Stay tuned and we'll see what we can do down the road.

I got a fun little message last night. One of my loyal fans and collectors in Singapore was interviewed by their leading national newspaper about her collection, and when asked who some of her favorite designers were she replied that I was one of them. How fun! :)

To be 1 of just 4 names mentioned in the article (David Blaine, the Bucks and Alex Chin) was an honor. Thanks Joyce!

We have a couple important announcements for the month of February.

First, for the entire month of February the Aurum decks are all on sale! If you haven't picked up some yet, now would be a great time. http://encarded.com/playing-cards/aurum.html

Second, we had a fun idea recently and are starting up a new Encarded Associates program. If you love playing cards and like to talk about them, review them or take pictures of them, you can earn free Encarded products, win rare items, and save money! We wanted to make a program that gives everyone a little something special, so read about the details here:

Interesting. I'm usually skeptical to simple designs à la JN from the get-go, so I'm curious to what you can do with something like that :) Though it won't take much to exceed the other decks in this "genre" (e.g. Fontaine or Fulton's Casino).
