custom printed 3/4" chits are now available!

3/4" chits are now available at The Game Crafter!

3/4” chits have been one of our most popularly requested printed components, and we’re pleased today to announce Small Circle Chits! They are circular measuring 3/4” across and come 150 to a sheet. They are printed both sides full bleed. You can get a sheet of these for $9.49, or just over 6 cents each chit.

In order to keep costs low and improve handling they are cut into 10 slugs and left in the slug for the customer to punch out. Because of this they require a bit larger box (not a tuck box) such as any of our pro boxes, or the medium game box.

Related Games Subsystem

Many of the designers in The Game Crafter community have asked for a way to link their games together. Sometimes it’s because one game is an expansion to another game. Other times it is because they have a deluxe and a basic version of the same game. Whatever your reasons, you can now do exactly that.
Go into your game and click “Edit Details”. At the bottom of the screen you can see a list of all your games. You can click on one to link it to the current game.

Holiday Shipping Deadlines

Hello from The Game Crafter!

I know it seems to be ridiculously early to be talking about holiday shipping deadlines in October, but it is that time of year again. If you’re working on a game you plan to give as a Christmas present, then please place your orders no later than December 3rd to receive it in time for Christmas. If you live outside the US, it will take much longer to arrive so plan accordingly.

We’ll provide another update as we get closer to remind you to get those orders in. Happy designing!
