Great news overall, I've been closely monitoring this thread for updates. Thanks!

However, what does this mean for the uncuts? Are they be shipped out early next year as well, or perhaps earlier/later?

Uncuts will arrive in Greece at the same time as the decks. Lotrek is already working on the tucks.

I don't know for sure, but I assume that you will be getting thrm along with the deck sets.

I know it was considered, and discussed, that the orange deck would also be gilded (using a cheaper technique). Was it decided that the orange deck would not be gilded at all?

The costs on these went crazy over budget, before they added a 21% Value Added Tax to the bill (which was never discussed before it was billed). We figured since they were made in Europe for delivery in Europe - they would not be taced, but apparently American logic on taxation doesn't work.

We are lucky the gold back decks were already gilded. The orange tone ones were meant to be used, so no gilding for them. We might have talked about it early on, but I don't remember ever thinking it would happen. Darned things are barely profitable at all after marking up printing more than 20%

Not a problem, Mike.

I haven't been following this restoration at every turn, so I just wanted to confirm that.

We had to have them reprinted due to a problem with the way the gold metallic ink was done in the first print run, and the second set arrived at Lotrek's studio in Athens about a week ago.

He is working on the hand-crafted dual tuck restoration and they should be shipping soon.

The delays were well documented in the previous two updates from Kickstarter, although if you bought them on UCdecksales I might not have kept everyone here 100% informed, although looking back at this thread, it seems that I caught things up a week behind both updates (#9 & #10, I think) from KS.

So all uncuts will ship from Greece? Was Lotrek signing those? Just seems odd they are sent there otherwise.

Cartamundi is based in Turnhout (Belgium), so yes - everything went to Athens where Lotrek's studio is located.

Is he signing them? I feel sure that he would consider autographing them if you asked, although again - that's not for me to commit.
