countdown to NYCC, D-28

I have pushed off sending card artwork to the printer until Sunday night.  I have some late entries for cards, and better to resolve them before sending.

suckpax 3 sheet layup

Above is a map of the 110 cards for the print run.  On the right side is a “gutter” between the last two vertical rows.  This allows us to have different background colors that “bleed”.  Cutting is imprecise, so for cards that are all the same edge color, they can be “butt” cut, since both sides of the cut will have the same color.  But to have black bleed cards, there is a gap from nearby Magenta bleed cards, so that there will be two different cuts, separated by 0.25″.  If the cut is slight off, you will not get a sliver of black or magenta on the wrong card.

For this run, we will have 99 Magenta bleed slots, 5 black bleed, 5 white bleed, and one peculiar one which will have a black border on one side, and white on the opposite.  I could just leave that spot blank, but I have an idea for a NYCC promo card that could use an odd border.

At this moment, I have 3 open slots.

Ideas for cards to go in them:

– Tractor cards (from my vintage farm tractor series)  I have 5 from the set, which I have printed as ride-alongs on the Suckpax 2 sheet.

– My Dad’s Record Collection info card.  I could print a card to include in each pack, which explains what the series is about.

– SideKick internal series.  I have 4 of this series printed already, could add another one or two.
