@Sinjin - I never said "Printed in Taiwan", I just said EPCC - and that was and it’s true. It was useless specify this in March since there wasn’t physical proofs about Chinese Factory decks, so no one, me included, would have the chance to evaluate the difference.
SINS boxes will have, of course, “China” below them - the truth
About Legal Tender - I don’t wish talk about other people projects, there is a long thread elsewhere for that. But I can say there are deep differences between mine and Jackson’s projects. I think, despite the same finish, the cards feel different. Boxes are made in different places. And I see that many negative comments are related to missing features/delays of the deck, not only about the finish. On this point, I can confirm that SINS decks will have all the promised features, plus an important one: the High Res foil. This is a true upgrade (it costs more) and it’s a big difference to low res. Fyi, High Res foil is possible only in Chinese factory at the moment.
Finish is, in fact, very important to me - but it’s not the only important point of a quality deck. Registration, printing, metallic inks and an awesome box are important points for me as well, and when I picked China over Taiwan, my intention was improve those points (and I think I nailed it). I can’t guarantee you will like SINS finish, but I can guarantee at least we’re doing our best on that, using the same materials of Taiwan.
About the consistence, I’ll ask EPCC - thanks for point this out, it may be useful. I hope that, if there was this problem on Legal Tender, they managed to fix it.
Also I don’t agree with you about the youtubers opinions are not worthwhile on finish - for me, all opinions are important - yours included.
Of course I need to defend my choice to print in China - otherwise I would have printed somewhere else
Anyway - consider that I’m trying (as other creators, I suppose) to make great products - I am not a big company and I am of course very worried about that any problem can occur to my projects (don’t think I took this choice easily - I talked with EPCC for days about this before decide and I was not sure until the very end - they probably hate me now) - on the other side, for innovate sometimes we need to take choices and risks. I hope this choice will be, in the end, a good one and everyone will be happy.
I see you’re very interested about this topic, so I assume you’re a big SINS Backer - for this, thank you in advance and I hope that you’ll be happy with the final product - at least for the rest, if you won’t like the finish
@Montenzi - Thank you for the kind feedback
I love USPCC too - in fact I am making Eva with them (with boxes made by Clove St) and so far I am very happy. I think USPCC and EPCC are different, but both great. I will continue working with both for my next projects!
