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

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.

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.

Whether it is lost, left behind or stolen not having your deck when you want it is a big deal.  DeckTracker is here to help make sure that doesn’t happen to you.

DeckTracker is a Bluetooth Device that is designed to alert you if the device is moved more than 20 feet away from your phone.  It will set off an alarm on your phone and you can use the map software to pinpoint the location of the device. Then, when you are close enough to hear it, you can set off the alarm on the device. It’s that simple!

Gone in 6 Seconds…

By · Comments (0)

Companies that design and produce large format signs and billboards have a rule about their designs. It is called the 6 second rule. It basically states that if your target audience can’t read and understand your message in 6 seconds, your message will be lost and your advertising campaign is a bust.

I apply that same principle to all of our package designs at Legion. We only have 6 seconds to grab a customers attention. If we can’t create a compelling reason for them to pick up our product, we have failed.

The marketplace for our products is filled with a great deal of visual noise.  From brightly colored anime and fantastical dragons to pink and purple ponies. The visual noise is everywhere, creating a challenging environment for our products to be noticed.

To that end, I strive to create compelling, yet simple and effective solutions for all of our packaging needs.

Let’s start with our Elder Dragon Vault boxes from last year.

EDB120-Summer13-Red

The effectiveness of this design was evident from the beginning when our manufacturer sent me a one word response to my design, “wow”. So many people have spoken with me about their love of the box and how they kept it to put it on their shelf or to store their Vault when not in use. The package conveyed perfectly what the product was and also allowed customers to see and feel the product inside.

I have continued that design style into our next offering arriving later this year, another textured dragon hide box we are branding as the Elder Dragon Hoard.

Elder-Dragon-Single-Mockup

I feel that this design will certainly get noticed and, again, allow our customers to see and feel the actual product inside. I wanted the product to literally jump off the shelf and grab the customers attention. The black and white design with just flashes of color will really stand out against the visual noise of the other products sharing the same space, hopefully catching your eye in less than 6 seconds…

The Elder Dragon Hoards will be available later this year on our website, legionsupplies.com/store and through your local retailers. As we get closer to the release date, we will make an announcement on Twitter, Facebook and our website.
