EPHEMERID playing cards - the Collectors editions

Created by Mr Cup

Following the success of the first 2 editions of the Ephemerid deck, here come super limited collector versions!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Surveys are coming
3 months ago – Fri, Apr 10, 2020 at 10:10:15 AM

I hope you are healthy and safe, as well as the people you love. It has been 3 weeks now that we are on lockdown in France, it is a really strange feeling, all days look the same. But nothing compared to some people who work daily to let us stay safe.

The funds finally arrived. I was longer than usual, and sadly a lot of payment did not finalize. But using Backerkit, you can update that. I will come back to it.

Just after sending this update, I will send the surveys to 5% of the backers. You will get an email from Backerkit. It is to test if everything goes well. If everything is ok, a few hours later, I will send the survey to everyone.

Why Backerkit and not Kickstarter surveys? 

It is a very well done management platform that makes things easier. The best is to answer as soon as you get it (please check you spam folder if you do not get it in the next 36 hours).

With Backerkit you will be able to :

  • confirm your pledge level.
  • pay the uncollected pledge if it fails on Kickstarter.
  • specify items you added during the campaign.
  • add more items as I propose you a lot of more goodies.
  • enter the address (this can be changed later).

You may also switch to a higher pledge level. The problem is if you do this there is no coming back! So it won't be a good idea if you take a limited edition item as they are not available in Backerkit!

You will have access to a lot of add-ons! 

You will be able to add dices, coasters, coins, but also uncut sheets or bricks. There will be no extra post costs for small items, only if you add large ones like sheets or bricks. If you pledge for the previous campaign, you will have a question before you access add-ons. Everything will be sent together as soon as possible. 

Is there any more Collector's edition?

For now, all the collector's editions are taken and reserved to people who pledge for them. BUT, almost 7% of the payment failed, which means if you did not finalize of Backerkit, I will make them available again. That's why it is super important to answer ASAP. No problem if you change your mind, but just tell me soon!

Timeline in this strange situation

This awful pandemic has effects on us all. Globally, we are business and social activity in a complete lockdown. It is the case for me, I close my studio and delivery services are now working in my home town for 2 weeks now, even UPS or DHL are slower than ever (when they work). My plans were to get everything sent in April but it won't be possible.

The most important is that you and your family are all safe. But we have to be very realistic about the current international situation which influences the timelines of border crossings, transits, customs processing and deliveries of goods worldwide. Nothing we can change about that right now, as the main concern is to save as many lives as possible.  I will be updating you regularly about this. I will send a full production update soon.

Shout out: Stellar Kingdoms Playing Cards

Stellar Kingdoms is a creative reimagining of the ordinary playing cards in an original Sci-Fi setting. The art of Stellar Kingdoms is based on the known tropes of adventure movies, games, and novels, and seamlessly blend with the traditional game card style.

Thanks a lot for your support. 

STAY SAFE!

7 days and 7 days / Stay Safe / Stay Strong
3 months ago – Sat, Mar 28, 2020 at 07:28:14 PM

The dealer coin will be available in Backerkit Survey !

I hope you are safe. If like me you support other Kickstarter projects, you get a lot of messages from creators on how the actual situation impacts us.  I am staying at home for 12 days now and France government just asks us to stay inside for another 2 weeks starting on Tuesday, so until April 15th. The important is to no spread this, stay strong.

So the funds should arrive at me in a week now, so until then I am working on the Backerkit, the management platform which will help you and me!

Uncollected pledges

It is common for a few backers' pledges to fail to collect. Yesterday was the 7th day and if you did not solve this issue, you have been removed from the Kickstarter campaign. It means that you will not receive the updates as usual, and will not be part of the Kickstarter campaign any longer. BUT as I use Backerkit, it allows backers that have been removed from the Kickstarter campaign to be back on the project. So, no worries, you are still in the loop and will get the survey. It will state that your fund was not taken by Kickstarter so you should enter a new payment form to proceed.

Backerkit benefits

If Kickstarter is very good to create the project, Backerkit makes is the perfect tool to manage it. As this is a double campaign, and some of you already pledge for the previous one, it will help to make only one package with all your items. I would not have lunch this collector's edition without Backerkit possibilities to manage everything.

So now, I am working on this to send your survey as soon as possible.

Until then, stay safe, stay strong.

Almost 350% !
4 months ago – Thu, Mar 12, 2020 at 04:52:33 PM

The collector's editions are almost sold out, thanks to your support. As we reach 300% I am pleased to improve the project with:

- extra numbered seal on the bottom of collector's edition decks, they will be hand-numbered!

- I always love tax stamps, I design and will print varied stamps/seals to improve the project.

As planned I will do double, triple and quadruple sleeves! I can now improve them with stamps! Also, the 4 shades of Grey set will come with a special grey sleeve. It shows you how I plan to use the stamps.

If you order 7 decks, you will get a quadruple sleeve + a triple one... etc, etc...

NEXT STRETCH GOAL: 350 %

A lot of you asked me about the Standard edition. It is sold out but I think about doing a reprint if we reach the 350% goal with a different seal. What do you think? Post in comments.

Shout-out: Arcadia Signature edition

Check this great project: Arcadia is a state of perfect harmony in nature. It's an idealized vision and has often been depicted in Renaissance art by shepherds herding their sheep in untouched wilderness. Think of it as a natural Utopia. 

Support the project here

That's all for now !
