Great News! All Umbra is going out now. It should be finished in the next couple of days.

I am still waiting to receive the shipment of decks for fulfilling the signed rewards. Some of the signed decks have gone out all ready. I will hopefully have everything from Gambler's by next week and all will start going out next week as well.

Next Project...

Dominion Playing Cards

Dominion pays homage to some of the most well-known Kings and Queens of fictional and non-fictional empires of all times.  Dominion reimagines the courts of a standard deck with illustrations that are gorgeous and colorful, with intricate details.

I am offering 3 decks, 1Black standard deck with cmyk printed face and backs, 1 Red Full Foil deck with Foil on both face and back of the cards and 1 Black Gilded deck (Black Standard with red gilding).

Dominion will be launching next week Tuesday, May 11 at 10am MDT. Click on this link if you would like to be notified once it is launched so you don't miss out on all of the early birds.

Thank you all for your support of Umbra!

Hi everyone!

After a delay at customs, Umbra is safely at Gambler's Warehouse. They should start shipping at the end of this week. I will be shipping some of the Signed decks. I am still waiting for inventory from Gambler's before I can start fulfilling the signature rewards.

Be sure to comment and message me your comments about Umbra when you receive your rewards.

Happy 2021!


Please Complete Your Surveys! Getting Ready to Ship!

Hi everyone!

We are getting close to shipping time! I am expecting the shipment of Umbra decks anytime now. The only problem is, I don't know when. Due to the ports being very congested, I am being optimistic for our shipment to be in soon. I am hoping to get you're all's rewards out by the end of April (if not sooner).

To be prepared for it, I want to be proactive. One major thing I need from you is to complete your surveys or make your changes. If you moved recently, please update your shipping address to reflect your new dwelling place. If you can't find the link to your survey, please message me and I will get it to you.

On another note, I will personally be handling and shipping all signed Umbra rewards. There are about 120 rewards that I will be shipping out myself. What has to happen is, once Gambler's receives the Umbra decks from customs, they will be sending me all of the items that I need to send to the Signed reward backers. I will make up the signed sleeves and brick boxes, seal the packages with the custom wax seal and send you your rewards. 

This just means, it might take your packages a little longer to get to you. I am only one person (I might be able to wrangle in some family to help), but they will be done beautifully for your enjoyment.

Oh...I have decided to hand-sign every deck. I will sign them on the backs on top of the cellophane. If you pledged for a single signed deck, the signed deck will be placed inside a signed sleeve and sealed with a red stamped wax seal. If you pledged for a signed deck that is a part of a brick set, I will sign the decks and place them in a brick box along with the other decks, sign the brick box and seal it with a wax seal as well.

Wow, I thought this was going to be short. 

Hey you all be safe and I will be in touch with more news shortly.
