So what is the deal with these cards when the deck is finished? I know you have to order from the GameCrafter site, but I never got a deck from there....are they nice? Do they do justice to your work? Is the cardstock decent? I REALLY CAN'T WAIT!!
Thank you, Bhavana, i thought you would like him as the Page of Cups...too cute!
...and if you ever need ears (or anything else) put on anything, let me know!
i got a little upset at the game crafters site, because they recently had the 'wrong' weight
on one of my other games there!!! Their site said it weighted over 6 lbs when it was around
2 ozs (not counting the big game box)!
That was one reason their shipping prices have been too high. i think it is fixed now... but
i am still a little leary about their shipping calculating software!!! Who knows how long it was
going on before i called them on it??!!
A lot of people have ordered at the ridiculously
high shipping prices. And now TGC says that they have no way of knowing 'which'
orders that happened to? Plus, the way their site is set up, the sellers (like me) have NO way of knowing
exactly WHO brought their deck or game. The only thing we can see on our sales stat page
is the state and country of the buyer...nothing else, no name, no address...natha!
AND they do not like to make changes to their ways! Really 'uptight' and 'boxed' in...like the 4 of coins!!!
...also like the Emperor, they like the 'total' control. i wouldn't use them at all, BUT their deck
quality is so good and shipping is fairly fast (because you only have the choice of 'priority' mail).
Even though they mail priority, it depends 'where' in the usa you live...their rates change
according to your zip code and according to the 'weight' of the deck or game.
i did find a great other place online that has the same good quality, etc., HOWEVER...it took
me about 2 1/2 weeks (i think it was) to get a deck printed from them. They do drop ship though
but don't think any of you want to wait that long once ordered. Plus you would have to pay
me via paypal first then i would pay them and have them dropship the deck to you.
...so back to game crafters i go...They have everything good...except their shipping rates!
(and the fact that they won't tell me the ordering details about my customer)
Oh, i think i mentioned this before, but i will again: The Chi deck will be available in the 'jumbo' size
as well as the 'regular' size. i have to tell you that the jumbo is magnificent...
i ordered one bear deck in jumbo and it is awesome and will be even better with the Chi deck in this size!
When will the Chi deck be ready?... hmmmm...i am aiming for the end of July or early Aug...
There are about 26 cards finished now (and about 4 extra cards as well)...so there is still a ways to go!
...aiming at finishing about one card every two days... so by end of May i should have
almost 48 cards done...15 more cards done in June...and the last 15 cards done in July...
i can actually do one card a day, but i am taking my time on this deck and doing other things
i like in-between as well...
...going for my daily 1 1/2 mile walk now...then back to work on cards!
