Hello all you awesome Calaveras supporters! You may have noticed that the Calaveras merch is no longer listed as pre-order on the site. We are shipping daily now thankfully. It's been super busy here at headquarters and nothing makes us happier than being able to get cards and other goodies to our customers right away.
I am updating the site as I find time with new and improved pics, as well as taking the pre-order label off all the listings. I may have missed a few to date, but know that anything available for order will ship out ASAP.
We received the Calaveras cards from USPCC right before Thanksgiving. I immediately started unwrapping the decks while Chris got busy numbering them all. We spent many nights on this process and found out that Chris has some sort of number dyslexia? Does that exist? Well, I believe it does because I have seen it. Oh, have I seen it. All's well that ends well though and once we realized that Chris can't talk and number at the same time, we shut up, set iTunes to shuffle, and got through those boxes like a couple of bosses. I only stabbed myself a few times. Okay, more than a few. But who's counting?
After that, we made history (IMO) with shipping. We worked relentlessly to get those decks, prints, stickers, coins, and shirts into the mailman's hands. Our mail carrier is awesome by the way. Here's a shout out to Dave, who rocked that mail truck so hard. So freakin hard. He's getting a nice Christmas bonus every year of his life. And I should probably throw in some cookies too. He's THAT good.
So what's next for these here Day of Dead and well, just dead, fanatics? We are thrilled to announce that Oracle Playing Cards will be available on our site in March-woot woot! If you haven't seen the Oracle cards yet, please take a look. They are gorgeous! I keep patting Chris on the back for designing these. I think he is getting a little sore actually but I can't help myself.

That's it for tonight, friends. We will have some exciting announcements coming up in the near future. Nope, I cannot divulge them yet but I am DYING to! Chris is being a party pooper unfortunately. BUT, for now, thank you for reading our blog and for supporting us!
