Best USA fulfillment service for Playing Cards?

Unread postby ClaireG » Fri Feb 10, 2017 3:01 pm  

Hey all!

Sorry for the inactivity but I've been caught up a few issues at home but I'm back baby! :D

After my somewhat successful kick starter for PlayingColor, I've been shipping them from Australia and even gave my friend a few decks to take with him to US so he can ship them out from there to lower costs for the customers!

However, I need a long term solution for fulfillment/distribution for playing cards and wondering who have you used and how much were their costs?

i know that this one is somewhat subjective, but after trying several and using two major ones here in the states, I'd have to recommend that you get in touch with Eddie at Gambler's Warehouse Fulfillment services in Grand Prarie Texas. He's one of us and has a very large fulfillment market considering he does most of the Kickstarter projects that we do, many of our artists here and groups like C.A.R.P. and David Blaine. He's got a LOT of experience and gets the job done effectively and efficiently for the most part, although you're always going to hear one or two howls when someone does that much of the overall total. I'd say 99.5% of the packages are fulfilled on time without incident, or at least on time if he gets the decks on time, there's not much he can do until the artist and production facilities get them to him.

I am starting to offer fulfillment for select playing card projects. Feel free to contact me for details. I can also recommend Gambler's Warehouse as I get a lot of decks from them and they do a good job packing them. Murphy's Magic supplies might start offering fulfillment and they are very reputable as well.
