Production Update: USPCC and mini decks
7 days ago
– Wed, Oct 21, 2020 at 11:21:18 PM
Finally, after weeks of solicitations, we managed to sign the contract with USPCC, which is 3 weeks late.
Here is how the production status looks.
The estimated completion date for decks does not look good if we consider that a part has to be gilded and then assembled (tuckbox+seal).
The delays and the lead times are ridiculous.
We printed these in China at WJPCC and they are ready. USPCC does not print mini-decks in the US, they outsource to China, so we thought of doing it ourselves and we get them in a very reasonable time.
Video from the factory:
Everything is proceeding, even if quite slowly.
We just wait. Big bummer for the 3 weeks delay.

a quick update with pictures from the fulfillment center about the Ravn4 items.
There is already a delay at USPCC, and they are 3 weeks late with the delivery of the hard proofs. Maybe today, we get the digital proofs. The pre-press is taking forever; even if we inquired every day and solicited it, we are still waiting.
Mini decks and brick boxes should be ready next week.
4 items are ready!
The coin, stickers, and the 2 pins are ready.
We got ugly pictures from the fulfillment center.
And a decent picture of the sample we received today.
I hope to get the digital proofs today, and the hard proofs next week.
Once the hard proofs are approved they count 6 weeks if they are on time.

I hope you are well. Today just a quick update about the production status, which is proceeding smoothly. USPCC is quite slow... we were expecting the digital proofs this week, but they told us we will get them next week.
Here is a clear overview:
Final numbers for Ravn X LTD: 750 units in total.
Stay tuned and have a great week!

first of all, thank you for completing the survey! 90% of you did it, and I hope the rest does it as soon as possible. Completing the survey is important for us, so we get a relatively precise count of the decks and items we need to order.
At the moment the count of RAVN X LTD is 672 and 99 backers did not complete the survey. They have the chance to add max 2 on top of their pledge and we assume that max 50% of them will do it. Probably the final count of LTD will be 722 in total. But we wait a little more before we set it in stone.
Decks: lead time
Pre-flight takes 2 weeks, and we initiated it on August 24th. The final files have to be inspected and if there is something wrong we will fix them. After pre-flight add 2 weeks for digital proofs and hard proofs. Once approved and contract is signed, count 4-6 weeks for the production (it is called lead time).
We lock the backerkit orders as soon as USPCC gets back to us with info about the preflight (probably the 7th of September). At that moment the order starts and they need to know how many decks are going to be printed. Credit cards will be charged as well.
After that, it is only waiting time and out of our control.
