Wow, what a year. I've spent the entire year trying to get these decks printed only to hit one roadblock after another. Just when we were getting close in August news came out that there were new lockdowns due to the pandemic in the region where the decks will be printed. It's been off and on lockdowns ever since. Earlier this week we have some progress, I hope. I've been promised that printed proofs will be arriving in 6 to 8 weeks. Once I approve the color and density of the printing on the proofs then I will approve the printing of the decks. I'm ordering 1000 decks on very thick high-quality art paper with a "rose petal" finish. Once I approve for printing it takes at least 30 days to get them printed, then at least 40 days to deliver them to my door. I'm as anxious as anyone else to get these done and into my hands but after all the delays I'm considering this to be a lesson in patience. Because of all the delays, I do not know if I will offer the decks on Kickstarter or just on my website shop. I have decided that I will for sure offer the decks to the people on my newsletter list first. Seeing as I'm only having 1000 decks printed and I have many thousands of people on my email list I would highly recommend that anyone who is interested in the deck to sign up for my email list on my website. Also, on a very personal note...my partner was just diagnosed with colon cancer and will have surgery on November 1st. I will be nursing him back to health for at least all of November. It's a scary diagnosis and aggressive surgery but we feel optimistic.
