Bravissimo!! I love what we have created together!! :ok

I am wondering if we are going to have a lwb or pamphlet of sorts so that the individual artists can talk about their inspirations for the card. I know that mine looks like just a picture of some old guy without the background regarding how I chose to approach the card and the significance of the imagery (I did send a brief description when I submitted the image).

Thanks!

Kimber

I still have another question for the printer, but I should know that by tomorrow.  DON'T SEND MONEY UNTIL I KNOW IF THERE ANY CHANGES.

Right now it looks like the deck will be 7.50 USD each with shipping
USA shipping $5.15 (~$13.00 USD)
to Canada  $12.95 (~$21.00 USD)
to everywhere else  $16.95 (~$25.00 USD)

There are 7 people in Europe (2-england, france, belgium, 2-germany, netherlands).  Would it be cheaper to send the cards to one person, and that person shipping in Europe?  If so, does anyone volunteer?

I can mail it in a flat envelope.  the cards will come in 4 pieces and will need to be cut. 

If you have problems with the cutting, I can do it, but I make no promises as to straightness or accuracy.

It's unlikely to be cheaper to send to one person so they can repost - a first class letter stamp has just gone up to 60p here...

Not till April 30 - and if you buy a load NOW...

I am doing !

$16.95 per deck is extreme. If it were passed on as a first class small packet + a share of that, it would certainly save. I would say I'd do it - but I shall be leaving the UK soon for 3 months.

Or people could pay for their decks and wait until the 2012 deck is ready so both can be sent together.

WELL - if these are flat, they wouldn't sit well in a package with a small box or whatever...

Sherry - how soon would they be available to mail ?

True. Surely a cardboard envelope wouldn't cost  $16.95 to send though? I feel bad not offering, but I'm a bit overburdened at the moment.

I would ask truelighth, if I can't do it myself. It would TOTALLY depend on whether the decks can be with me by the beginning of May, and/or if NOT, whether Europeans can BEAR to wait till mid-July....

I can wait for the postage money till July, as I trust you all, and anyway if you let me down I will BITE you.

Gregory,
I think the $12.95 to Canada is for shipping in a standard box in my experience; the box would fit 2 MA (major arcana) decks quite confortably - why don't you have yours sent to me as well (no charge for you for shipping as I have to pay that amount anyway) and you could pick it up from me at Yorkdale :-)

just an idea

Finally have final quotes in hand, and have given the go ahead to print.  The postage is going to cost more than the deck!  :fI will PM everyone with my Paypal ID.

Sorry it has taken so long.

I had a good question via email, and I thought I'd copy the answer to ya'll

Fees at Paypal are simple, either you pay them or they take them out of the money you send, so basically I pay them.  I am not making any money on doing this so I prefer that you pay the fees.  Which option is up to you, I think 'personal' is the only one that gives the option for you to pay fees.
 
I am planning on shipping the cards in a 9x12 flat Priority envelope.  The cards will be coming in four sheets of six cards each that you will need to cut.  If you are really stressed over the idea of cutting the cards, I can cut them for you.  BUT I make no promises that it will be a better cutting job that you could do yourself, and then you'd be stuck with whatever I cut up.

New paid list, 2 holds.  I forgot to figure the cost of a deck for adam into the overall, so I am planning on holding on to it and sending it with the 2012.

REMEMBER TO PAY FEES ON PAYPAL.   Select gift or personal, or whatever.  Instead of the 15.15 for deck and shipping I only get 14.41 so the rest comes out of my unemployed pocket.  acouple people have sent extra so I will break even (so far) but it's not fair to them.  If you're paying with anything other than a paypal balance there will be fees.


See later post for list

Skad, I'm sending you $10 just for the deck - perhaps you'll keep one for me and I'll pay the postage when I have another to be sent.

Perhaps I could send Adam's on to him too if it's possible to put all 4 decks in the same package...?

:ce:ce:ce

First shipment went out today. 
Rylla and Gregory's fit well in one envelope.

Three surprises for you.  It was going to be only one, then I thought of one thing that just had to be done....  Then when the printers machines were down I sewed up the second surprise.  Then the printer made a boo-boo, and they ended up giving us the mis-printed sheet.  

The cards in this picture are cut, but your are not, they are in sheets, so don't be surprised when you get them.

The colors turned out really nice and intense and just nice!  By the time I got the scan sized down small enough to fit on the forum, I lost alot of the brilliance, so they will look alot nicer in person.  Alot!

And yes, there is a typo.  And no, there will not be a reprint.  it is part it's charm and individuality.  I tried to correct it on everyones prints, If  I didn't. please do,

One other thing, I didn't plan in a copy to the Meseu in Italy, anyone want to sponsor them? Unfortunately, it'd be 26.95, unless we just hold the copy to ship with the 2012 deck.

What should I do about fees?  So far 3 people have left the fees to me, for a total of 3.25.  Last year I tried the letting people know and having themsend more, but the only one who benifited was paypal.  I guess the only other option is to refuse the payment.  For the last 2 I have tried shipping a cheaper method, but I don't know how long they'll take.  Plus it's almost impossible to plan ahead how much the shipping will cost if I don't use Priority Mail.  (Gail, it wasn't you, yous came thru fine.)

Also, if anyone wants a second deck, let me know.  I can try shipping them in a plain envelope and let you know how much the shipping was.

I received mine the other day. It is lovely! And I like the surprises. Thanks Sherry, for all your hard work.

It is a real pity that some people have left the fees to you. I don't think that is right. I agree with Gregory for a next time. Just add some extra already, so you are sure you get paid properly. It is not like you make any money out of this, so if there is some extra, you deserve it.

Yup, there are plenty for everyone left, and some extras if you want 2.  I sent you an email awhile back with the info, I'll go ahead and send a PM today with the info again.

I send acouple packages with cheaper shipping so even out the fees thing, so I am ok.  I don't really like to so it because there is no way to know in advance what the charges are, but they are substantially cheaper.  It would make the biggest difference for the overseas shipping.

All the extras are gone, so now all I have left is enough for the people who participated.  If they let me know they don't want theirs I can let someone else have it.

So it looks like this deck is finally wrapping up.  I never heard from Ambrial and sacredashes, usually they are pretty good,,  But I came to .17 cents of breaking even.  Acouple people sent alittle extra and acouple got different shipping.  I need to review why my estimate if what the deck would cost per person was off,  I guess i don't plan for snafu's.  Having and selling the extra decks is what made the difference.  So it ends well. :ok  :ok

Has anyone read with the various sizes?  I am curious if there was any difference.   :hp
