Inverted Inferno is following right after these.


I just want some clarification. So late September you're sending out:

-Grotesk Black Gold & Silver
-Grotesk Bronze
-Liturgy (Version2 green and Version2 red tucks plus a free 1st version green deck)
-Grotesk Inferno

all together in one shipment?

This was all just a huge scheme to make shipping cheaper wasn't it. Genius.

"Finish was rubbish, need to reprint everything, I'll touch base in a month"
"Ok that didn't work, but this other deck is working, I'll try that on this, gimme another week"
"Ok, my cat scratched all of the prints, and puked on the tuck boxes, While I am getting this third deck printed I have to completely reprint the other two"
"Another glazing issue, all three decks are on hold while I finalize the glazing process and print deck four"
"Alright, totally random, not planned at all coincidence that everything finished around the same time, I'll just ship it all at once"

Wait. We haven't finished yet. In a few days I'll break my leg, then we'll have my car stolen full of the decks, then we'll have "Ambassadors" issues with foiling, then a major change in the Hieronymus decks that won't come out as I wanted them to and finally you'll get all the decks after 4-5 years in a huge box. Eheh, that's the way to make money nowadays! :lol: :lol:

Got home to a rather large parcel on my doorstep today.
Here's a quick snap shot of what I received:

I am so envious misterharmanko! Sadly, I didn't back that campaign. Still, that had to set you back a few pennies. One can never have enough limited decks of Lotrek's though.

Agreed, I do like to stock up on Lotrek's decks.
And Yes it did cost me a small fortune - However it was so long ago that I think my bank balance has just about recovered :lol:

That looks to be $1,400 by my count...

I used to think I was over-doing it by ordering 2 of each deck...

Got my decks well packed in perfect condition on friday :)
Beautiful and shiny as expected.
Silver, Gold and Inferno are very thick, more then Ambassadors.
Can't wait to get Inverted Inferno & Signature aswell.
Thanks Lotrek.

btw.... I thought that i get the Grotesk Test decks with this package, but i guess they will sent along with Inverted Inferno ?
Test decks were on sale May 10th:

I've added all 4 decks to portfolio52.

Lotrek, thanks to you, Melania and the rest of the people who were involved with the decks.

Christmas came today and every thing was perfect. The Grotesk Bronze is my favorite out of the 4. I favored the green Liturgy deck over the red one but I like the red one better. Well I'll be ready for the inverted Inferno and Signature decks.

Hope these are waiting for me at home .... !

Haven’t seen Lotrek post in the last few days, hopefully because he’s busy preparing to ship the signature and inverted inferno decks :)
