    I'm in awe at the consistent high quality of the art. I'd love to read about how this was planned out.

    @Steevo- no definite word yet, as we're still in printing. Target date for mid-april still looks to be good for when they'll arrive here.


    @Twist- Thanks! Hope the pay issues sort out soon!

    Holy crap. Ok, just got a bunch of shots of the cards in process from the printers. Note, these have not been color adjusted or anything so their camera may be off on coloration with stuff. It should also be noted that they're still printing- I do not have decks yet, this does not mean they're here yet. At the same time though, here's our first glimpse of them as a real live physical object, and dude, that glimpse is awesome.






    Things are getting close to the finished decks being shipped to me though, and once I get notification of that, we'll be switching from pre-order mode to full on order mode on the website, which means the price will be changing. So, if you want to grab them while they're still at the pre-order price, now is definitely the time.

    And for those who don't have it handy, here's the link to the pre-order page again: clicky here.

    All right, folks, it's time for the official announcement- the printed copies of the Windrow-Ravenswood Deck have arrived!

    Qualitatively, they're better than what I hoped for. Comparing these to a standard deck of cards you'd get from a regular line or casino, there's zero difference. Paper stock is great and durable. The matte/linen finish allows for decent shuffling and movement, and they certainly don't feel like flimsy or poorly produced items. Here, check out the quick shots I managed to grab this morning:







    The only bad side is that these arrived before my mailing supplies did, so we won't be able to start shipping until the 14th, roughly. But that's when the first wave of decks will be going out to pre-order customers. In the meantime, those customers here in Seattle who've pre-ordered decks can pick theirs up live at Abney Park's Circus at the End of the World event tomorrow night- just give us your email address and proof of shipping address, and we'll be able to hook you up with your deck in person. Or, you can still order decks online if you haven't yet.

    Those look incredibly good. I'm glad to hear about the physical quality of the cards. (The visual quality was, of course, never in doubt.)

    Got mine today.

    Is awesome.

    Product review:
    Cards pretty much as we've seen here and the size of a regular playing card as described. The cards are stiff enough to get a good shuffle and bridge but aren't too stiff that they don't bend slightly after one shuffle (but other than making them out of plastic there's nothing really to be done for it).

    I am very pleased with this purchase.
