Steve-fin Update

By · Comments (0)

You may remember last year I made a short run sleeve as a charity fundraiser.  The idea was based on a social media tsunami that happened when my 2 year old daughter suggested that “Daddy should be a Dolphin for Halloween” and my wife reached out to our friends to help sell the idea back in 2013. A photoshopped picture of me in the costume quickly surfaced and requests to make it into an actual sleeve followed quickly behind. I agreed to do it, but only for charity. about 8 months later we’ve sold almost 400 packs of those sleeves at $5 a pack.  100% of the sales of this product will become a donation to World Vision. A Micro Loan charity that gives loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries to help them build their lives and communities.  It’s a charity that spoke straight to my heart and I’m excited to be sending them a check.

Which brings us to the meat of this post.  Every single dollar you give me for Steve-fin sleeves goes to this charity. I’m eating all the costs of the production of these sleeves.  We’ve raised Almost $2000 so far, but I’d like to send more!  I committed to sending the check at the end of this year, and the end of this year is approaching quickly.  If you thought about buying some but haven’t, or bought some and are ready for some more, head over to the store and get them now! I’ll leave them on the site until they are all gone and will write a check each year for the amount sold the previous year, but I’d like to make this first check a big one!

Always follow your dreams!

Shipment Due Soon

By · Comments (0)

We are hoping that our shipment will be in over the weekend, meaning it will be in the warehouse as of Monday.  If you follow us on Twitter, Facebook or on Instagram you will get to see the new products on the shipment right out of the box as they get into the warehouse.

I have also added the new products onto the website to order, but those products will not be delivered until they are in obviously.  If you would like to get these products from your local stores, which we encourage that you do, they should have them in there stores in about a week or so after we get them in the warehouse.

If this date changes I will update this post to reflect the new time to keep you guys in the loop.

Elder Dragon Hoard

hoard
hôrd
noun
1. a stock or store of valued objects, ex. your EDH deck, usually one that is secret or carefully guarded.

The Elder Dragon Hoard are a smaller version of our Elder Dragon Vaults perfect for storing your favorite deck.   Unlike the Vaults they have a smooth vinyl inside in place of the fabric that could snag your deck.  We expect them mid to late Oct 2014.

Since the beginning of time, magic players have preferred black border cards to white. That is no opinion ladies and gentlemen, that is fact.

Naturally, we at Legion Supplies thought having a “black core” design to our boxes and sleeves would be a great fit. Through the latter part of last year and into this year, we have been working on a design that would allow us to do just that. We got positive feedback on early samples and decided to run with it.

Initially, the sleeves looked and felt good. We were all pumped about the prospect of everything going black core. However, upon closer inspection, we noticed the quality of the material was fairly inconsistent.

The corners would crack after shuffling and reveal a foil underneath, easily marking the sleeve. Another issue we were having was a bubbling of the sleeves The cause of bubbling effect has not determined.

Bubbling on the left side- you can see why Steve is not a hand model.

pic 3

We called this effect “the accordion”

In the end, we scrapped the material we were working with. Unfortunately, it just didn’t meet our standards of quality. Our goal is to keep 100% of our customers satisfied and this material just wasn’t going to allow this to happen.

Stay tuned to legionsupplies.com as we will continue to work at this issue until we are completely confident with the product we are putting to the market.

We wouldn’t have it any other way.

As some of you might have noticed on the bottom of the Foretold: Rise of a God travel box states that there should be three packs of Faithful sleeves, this is an editing error.  We made the Travel Box with the purpose of housing the game and containing enough sleeves to sleeve the game and have a few left over for future expansions.  As there are 80 Faithful we chose to include two packs, 100 sleeves, in the travel box so you would have 20 left over for future expansions.

We are sorry for the confusion, we are resolving this for full release.
