Hey everybody! I’ve officially received everything... except the cards. Yeah I know lol. I’ve asked for a progress update from PrintNinja and I’ll hopefully hear back on what their completion date is by tomorrow!
In the meantime, stickers, buttons, and keychains have all arrived and are looking fantastic! I’ve worked with the company that printed these numerous times and they never disappoint. For now I’ll leave you all with some photos and hopefully tomorrow I’ll have a more clear date on when the decks will start heading my way soon!

So, things are still chugging along in production, but I've received a couple things so far! That is shipping supplies, the dice bags, and all the bookmarks! Unfortunately the factories that are printing the decks themselves as well as the rest of your goodies are on vacation until the 8th of October, but I expect it shouldn't be too long after that when I finally receive everything. Shipping will likely start in the second half of October as long as there's no other delays!
And while I'm here, have some quick photos of the bookmarks and the dice bags :)
The designs for the bookmarks ended up being Key, Comet, and Donjon! Your stickers will be Moon, Skull, and The Void!
That's all for now, see you soon!

Happy Monday everybody!
Just a quick update to let you all know that everything for the KS has been ordered and paid for and is in the process of being made/proofed now. BackerKit should've told you by now that you have about a day left now to lock in your address if it needs to be changed for any reason, after which that will be the destination for your cards and other goodies.
I still have no idea how long things might take to get to me with postal slowdowns, but at least right now things are all in order. The bookmarks and shipping supplies are being ordered domestically so I expect them to get to me first, while everything else is being printed outside the US. I don't anticipate those items being delayed until they hit the US, but the companies I'm using have been extremely reliable for me in the past, so it should be fairly quick work! I estimate a week or two as long as there's no hiccups along the way.
I'll update you all again when everything gets to me and I start packaging orders. :)
See you soon!
Final Survey Reminder!

Hey everybody! Today is the absolute last day to get your BackerKit survey in! If you still need help figuring yours out then please don't hesitate to message me here and I'll help you get it sorted! If you're unsure and just want to double check yours is sorted I'm happy to do that as well. :)
Remember, if it's not in by 11:59pm MST then your pledge won't get fulfilled!
If you've got friends who've been hemming and hawwing over snagging a copy of The Deck from the BackerKit store then remind them this is their last chance as well!
If you haven't already, voting for the designs you'd like to see for the stickers and bookmarks also ends today, so get your votes in for your preferences! Vote here.
My new tablet pen has also arrived so I'll be able to get my head down and work on finishing the art files for all of our extra goodies here. I'll be able to start placing and finalizing orders for everything over the next week here, and I'll update you all when my printers do on how things are going and how they're looking. :)
Sticker/Bookmark Poll + Survey Reminder!

Hey everybody! We're closing in on the final few days you have to submit your BackerKit survey. If you still haven't received yours or can't find it for whatever reason, please message me and I'll get you sorted!
Reminder that if your survey isn't submitted by September 8th at 11:59pm MST that your pledge will not be counted! Over 90% of you have filled yours out already, so yay! Get yours in now if you haven't.
Now, there's also something else I need your help with, and that's voting for the designs you'd like to see on the three holographic stickers and three bookmarks that are going out to everybody who's backed the campaign! Just pick your top three and submit them, and once the BackerKit closes I'll let you all know what designs you'll be getting. :)

I've also already paid for the cards and am currently waiting to get the custom box template for the deck, so that process will be well under way! The only snag I've hit is the graphics tablet I use had its pen get in water somehow (I still have no idea how it happened), so I'm waiting on a replacement, and thus I won't be able to get all the art prepped to the new printer's specifications until it arrives. My art program doesn't even want to think about the fact that my mouse exists, and I don't blame it lol. Conveniently though, the replacement is supposed to get here the day the BackerKit closes, so it shouldn't cause many issues! I just felt it pertinent to mention in case things hit a little bit of a lull here while items get ordered and printed and all that.
That's all for now! Go ahead and fill out those polls when you have a sec, and get your survey in before it's too late! See you all soon.
