NYCC countdown update

Well, I had planned on posting daily in the leadup to the New York Comic Con, but that did not happen.

Here is a summation update:

First, a new toy arrived today, the first of many pieces that need to fit together for Suckpax 3.

puzzle die cutter

Our cutting die for puzzle pieces arrived, and it will create individual pieces  that will just fit into wax packs.  I had a bright idea, that it will work on Album covers, and be a neat part of “My Dad’s Record Collection” packs.

Suckpax 3 components:

– wrappers should arrive by Friday.  Delayed at printer

– Saw the proofs for the cards, and had some corrections needed.  Will see revised proofs Wednesday morning.

– Cards scheduled for printing on Thursday, will be ready for me to pick up Friday.

– Lenticular printed yesterday, should have by Friday

– A cool specialty card has arrived, and  is ready for a special ink application

– Stickers are being printed this week, due Friday

– Die for stickers has been ordered, and should be here by Friday

Wow, Friday is a big day.

Email to Artists, inviting them to be guests at the Booth has been sent.

Still to start:

Signage for the booth

Table cloths (higher tables will need new ones)

Countdown to NYCC, D-27, eye on calendar

Getting a little stressed, many things need to happen.

Today’s items accomplished:

– Sent out design for custom die-cut fixture that we will need for Lenticular puzzle

– Spoke with our Lenticular printer, they will be able to produce finished blanks in time, and at a reasonable cost.  Will need artwork to them Monday/Tuesday next week, though.

– Spoke with Card printer, found out that all the card backs will need to be massaged.  Can do over weekend.  They are ordering paper today (I gave them ample heads up, they should have ordered already, but should be ok)

– Ordered Aromatics for special purpose

– Finalized front for NYCC special promo card.  Now got to design the back.

– Scheduled when The Sucklord will visit us to guide final production

Did not get to yet:

– Email to artists

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)
