5 Days Left in Our First Munich Artists Kickstarter

Hi Munich Artists!  We are at 94% for our first Kickstarter.

This is a quick message to ask you to donate to our Kickstarter so we can reach our goal. This is our first time crowdfunding and we are so excited that you have been helping us out.    To reach 100% we need to sell a few more card decks or have someone pick our 150 Euro package which still have one card proof left.

I have a few more artists bios to share with you.  As I mentioned on our Munich Artists Card page, some very generous Munich Artists participated in our projects and have together created a wonderful deck.  I want to thank each and every artist for their hard work creating our first Munich Artists deck.  This is a collaborative project and each artist of the artists below has helped to make the deck a reality.

Current Project: Munich Artists Playing Cards – Kickstarter Starts Today!

Here is the link to our Kickstarter.  You have until October 9th!  Please Help Us Create Some Amazing Cards and Have a Great Event.

With the help of the above group of artists who were selected from our 500 Artists Say Hello Event, Munich Artists will be printing a party set of Munich inspired artists playing cards and a deluxe set of playing cards.   The deluxe version will be ordered after the kickstarter is completed.   The party version will be ordered this weekend.  What is the difference?

The party cards are smaller in size and are being created specifically for the event.  The deluxe version or American poker sized cards and will have that beautiful box that Elizabeth Hughes designed.  Why the two different versions?  Because I want you to play with the cards and you may feel like the deluxe are too pretty to play with at the event.

HISTORY of 500 Artists Play Cards

At the Beginning of the year, Elizabeth Hughes approached Munich Artists about creating a deck of playing cards.  I (Emmy) told Elizabeth, we could create cards as long as we could throw a Munich Artists Play Cards Party/art happening.  She was on board with the larger idea and she joined the project as a project manager for the creation of the card deck.  Over the last few months, Elizabeth chose the artists, curated their artwork, designed the box, the back of the cards and created all the files to send to the printer.

We have had to make a few changes along the way but the cards are almost ready to be printed on paper.  We are very excited!

Here is the Back of the Card design created by Elizabeth for the cards:

  • Our Kickstarter starts Today September 16th.  To attend our 500 Artists Play Cards Event, you must purchase your cards through our Kickstarter.  Our cards will be for sale at Haeppy Art but the kickstarter bonus gifts are only available on our Kickstarter.   For the event we are ordering a version of the cards called party cards.  they will come in a metal tin.  The deluxe versions ordered after the kickstarter will be in a box designed by Elizabeth Hughes.
  • The Kickstarter has bonus gifts which will not be available ANYWHERE ELSE.  I have permission from the artists to make prints of their work for the Kickstarter and I would love for you to get a print of some of these cards to put on your wall.
