Bulk Order Fulfillment Now Available at The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce a new feature we’ve been working on for months called Bulk Order Fulfillment (BOF). BOF allows you to purchase a bunch of your games from The Game Crafter and ship them out to multiple addresses at the same time. Best of all, you get the bulk discounts as if you were shipping them to the same address!

- Crowd funding campaigns, such as Kickstarter.
- Christmas or Wedding gifts.

Token / Dice Sticker Changes

Today we’re pleased to announce some exciting, and most likely controversial, changes to our token stickers and dice stickers.
We’re now cutting them with a new process, which is far more accurate. The new print registration process we’re using has near pixel-perfect accuracy, so drift on these stickers, while still possible, is very unlikely. Any drift that remains should be less than 1mm.

18 Card Wrap for Booster Packs

18-Card Wrap for Booster Packs - Available at The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter is pleased to introduce a new 18 card wrap. It will hold 18 poker cards and is ideal for booster packaging. Each wrap is full bleed, full color, and is made of thin paper. They cost $1.99, and are available now. Go download the template. Enjoy!

Note, this was a funded perk of our Indiegogo Campaign.

Large Pro Game Boxes Now Available

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce our new Large Pro Box. It is made of a cardstock that is nearly double the thickness of our previous Large Game Box. It has seamless corners, and will hold up to quite a bit more stress than our original box. It still has the same dimensions as our old Large Game Box so the box wraps you’ve designed will continue to work as normal. It sells for $1.99, and all games with the old Large Game Box have been upgraded to the Large Pro Box automatically.

8 Year Old Boy Creates Buzzworthy new Board Game, Questing, at The Game Crafter

We recently heard about an 8 year old boy who created and self-published his own board game on The Game Crafter. The game is called Questing and it has received a lot of attention in the TGC community as well as on Reddit. We knew this would be a great story so we contacted his father, CC, and interviewed him to see how this all came about.

It’s hard to believe that The Game Crafter is going to get its 20,000th order in the next few days! After all, when we launched this service (as a beta) back in July of 2009, we weren’t even sure there was a market for print on demand game publishing.
