First of all, I wish you a wonderful and creative 2021. This year was full of difficulties and we all learned how to live without knowing what exactly happens next. During these days, your support has been even more important. Kickstarter is really a community of creative people helping each other, and that what makes it a special place. A place where dreams become real. So thank you just for being part of this. 

December has been a crazy month. I decided to do the fulfillment myself, with the help of all my family. Some friends even come to the rescue. We ship around 1/2 of the Precious Metal edition, and 1/3 of the Collector's edition. We then took a break for Christmas, send some more after it, and take another break for the new year. Tomorrow we will be back and the plan is to have everything sent for January 15th. 

If your package has been sent, you must have received a message from backerkit, and then a message from Dilivengo french delivery service with a tracking number. It is your national postal service that will deliver your package: USPS for the USA, Deutsche Post for Germany, etc... you can track the package with both web site, french one or your country one. Also consider everything is longer for delivery with the covid situation, what usually took 2 days, take 4, and what takes 7 take 10... please be patient and trustful.

Here come some behind the scene taken in December, you can see my daughter helping me with numbering and ordering the collector's edition and all the special improvement we have made with the special double, triple or quadruple sleeve.  And for all those who asked my grandmother, is super happy with the project as I had visited her more than ever since the cards arrived at her home. Of course, I do this safely.

For the coming days, we will focus on sending the packages, we do not have the possibility to answer requests like "did my package was sent?"... Hope you understand that and can be patient. If you really need it, please contact us directly at mrcupstudio@gmail.com if you have a question, and only there. I understand some of you are impatient, but putting a comment in the update, on the project page, and sending a private message at the same time just make us lose time. 

Thank you again for your support and stay safe.

This is what you expect to read for months and I am so happy to finally write it! Today, after one more week than announced, the playing cards arrived! It was a surprise as I called someone yesterday who told me "we do not know where they are"... So today I visit my grandmother to celebrate her 91st birthday and during dinner, the ring bells... The delivery guy was surprised by my enthusiasm! Some photos.

We celebrate by drinking some champagne.

Such a relief. We have crazy days coming now to do all the packages but at last, it in our hands. All family will be at work and the first package should be sent by Friday.

If you really really want them for Christmas, I mean, really really want, please drop us an email at mrcupshop@gmail.com to see what is possible.

Thank you for your support, need to sleep a little now and dream of something else than having the decks delivered...

In transit !

Never thought a photo of cardboard boxes under plastic can makes me so happy... The transport finally picks up the decks...

This is the message I expect for months... In transit! So all the decks are now in the hands of customs and hope they will do they work quickly. For now, the delivery to me is planned for November 24th. Fingers crossed.

They will be delivered to my grandmother! Yes, it is a family business... She has a large garage on the ground floor of her home. My family has been in winemaking for generations (hey, I am french), so this place is where we store agricultural equipment ... It is the only place large enough to receive all these boxes. Then I'll go get the boxes there and thanks to you I can share a good meal with her. She is 90 and she thanks you for your support too!

The next step will be to bring the decks to my studio, on the second floor, and I think you also taking care of my health as it will be something... I will then prepare all your packages, with help from family too, which should take several days... I organize myself with the delivery service so that packages are sent every day when they are ready until everything is done. Still a little patience, we are so close.

Thanks again

Shout-out: "Subjective Anatomy" Letterpress Art Prints

I met Mylène and Denis some year ago as we have a common letterpress printer friend in... Australia! They're probably the only Letterpress printshop on a boat! They are a family business and I explain how amazing the Kickstarter community is and they should launch a project! And they did it (I could use the same gif here)! 

Check and support here!


Still no cards ?
