NYCC special trading card in process

nycc card

Working on a special New York Comic Con giveaway card.  Wanted to incorporate several things:

– The Sucklord and Vectar (since the Suckpax 3 trading cards will drop at NYCC)

– Glyos, because we are next door to them, and merging our booths

– New York

Decided to use the Vectar Glyos figure, in a New York setting.  I am pleased with how the card looks.  But now have to work on the back (backs are always the tougher part of card design)

Suckpax 3, Sticker cards, test layup

September 13, 2011 - no comments. Posted by in Production, Suckpax 3.

The Sucklord designed a kick-ass set of stickers for the set.  9 different, and we are going to kiss-cut them like vintage sticker cards (Garbage Pail Kids, Star Wars, etc).  I had a company make up a custom batch of sticker material, which matches the composition and thicknesses of the old style stickers.

Just printed a test layup of the 9, and some of the cards may need some size adjustment.

Once the artwork is locked down, I can design the steel rule die that will do the kiss-cut.

Digression: Kiss-cut is not what tough girls do, but when a pattern is sliced into the top layer of a multi-layer material.  A die is carefully shimmed so that it only cuts through one layer and not all the way through the stack of material.  This yields a sticker where you can peel away just part of the front, shaped in some way.

I am excited thinking about some of these stickers showing up on lunch boxes.

Suckpax 3, pack wrappers, prototype

Suckpax 3 wax pack prototypes

The Sucklord finished the excellent artwork for Suckpax 3 wax wrappers.  Continuing the permutation of the Suckpax CMY color scheme, the primary color is Magenta this time.

These are a couple of test prints (inkjet) which we waxed and wrapped to see how the wrapper fits.

Looks OK to send out to print.
