My personal opinion is it would be better to never have printed one at all.


Yep, because Icons Sacred and Icons Imperial never should have been made because they are not good quality and not by the Big 3.


This analogy doesn't make sense to me since Lotrek, being a quality snob himself, didn't settle for subpar quality and that is why we have excellence in the final Icons product. But in any case, calling me a quality snob doesn't insult me. That remark resembles me. :)


Sorry for the offtopic: I love both my Icons Imperial and Icons Sacred but let's face it: Neither of them fans. My Imperial is extremely clumpy and my Sacred does not fan at all.

I think the highlights on ICONS decks were all the experiment, stock, special foil we've never seen. If a printer (big 3 or not) can offer some special treatment/effects that we've never seen before, I for one will be happy to buy them. So yeah, you can't compare ICONS to this...

Hi All,

Divine Art Playing Cards - Limited Edition is live now on Kickstarter.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/su ... ed-edition

A personal challenge I've taken this time apart from putitng my own money is to get this delivered to backers in record time. Fingers crossed.....

I have looked into a no. of projects and there hasn't been any project done with these specs before. It is highly possible that I might have missed it, so do let me know. I'm hoping that this product will be liked by everyone once fulfilled, and hope some of you will then recommend potential deck artists to collaborate and partner with Guru Playing Card Company to get their decks done. This is my ultimate test....

Regards,
Sunish

Thanks for the support. I’m still contemplating about the total no. of decks to be made available vs how much to be made available on Kickstarter. The no. I’m coming towards is 555/400 (Total vs on KS). And, if KS picks up then I may get a total of 900 printed. Let’s see how it goes.

Reached the goal...Yay...I know majority is still self-funded but it has been hell of a ride and I wanted to see it get printed. Thanks Mike (Bruno), Rich, Garrett & Paul for your constant feedback & suggestions over the last few days.

Thanks to Lotrek, Jody, Randy for sharing certain key insights & feedback in last few weeks on some of the key focus areas.

All,

FYI...I've taken down the booklet as the stretch goal. That said, the numbered stamp is available with the deck from this point onwards and without any stretch goal.

Check latest update.

Less than 24 hours to go.....With a twist of fate, the deck will come with the booklet as well as numbered stamp now. With production in process, expect this deck to get in your hands sooner than expected.

Please share and support the first ever deck produced by GPCC.

Hey Everyone,

Thought of sharing an update that things are progressing well in Production & I expect it to be complete within this month itself. There was a bit of scare on gilding but it got resolved too. Once production is complete and before fulfillment starts, I am thinking to offer some decks as pre-order. They won't be offered at the same price as that of reward tiers on Kickstarter, shipping will still be free worldwide and those will be shipped along with Kickstarter rewards. I understand that backerkit or platforms like Indiegogo In Demand offers similar type of pre-order arrangement but as I didn't use these, a shopify store will be used for the pre-orders.

Going with pre-order at least allow me to use the same fulfillment partner with better rates due to bulk orders. It has got limited print run of 500 decks only with a combination of features not seen in other decks.

Should I go ahead with pre-orders or wait for the decks to arrive & then set up a store for selling. Appreciate any thoughts and suggestions.

Some may feel different, but I think if K/S backers have preferential pricing *and* get shipped first, what steps you take selling pre-orders are all up to you!

Get a timeline as to when you'll get the decks. Once they are close to delivery open the pre-order. Send KS first then the pre-orders.
Move on, nothing to see here.

Sharing a video of tuckbox and pictures of numbered stamp & booklet.

The cards are going to be reprinted again due to the random gold foil spots that were found at a few places on a number of sheets. More on Dec 19 Kickstarter update.

Image

I expect the reprints to start in the next couple of days when new card stock arrives at the printer. Fulfillment to start by Mid-January if all goes well this time around. Fingers crossed.

The samples sent are looking really good by the way. The issue of gold foil imprints being seen or felt on card faces is not there as found on decks from other printers. Just hoping that the production run goes well this time around.

Sunish
