Inked Adventures Map&Dice Playing Cards reduction code for international customers

X-posted from Inked Adventures 

(I am the main artist for Inked Adventures and this is shameless, so very shameless, self-promotion of the lowest order, no really, I can't sleep at night because my day is filled with things like this...)




Was $12

Now $6.50 USD plus shipping when using the voucher code below.

Inked Adventures is based in the UK and our Map & Dice Playing Cards are printed in the US.  This is because DriveThruCards provide a print-on-demand and web store service of which there is no equivalent in UK.  However, our UK, Europe and international customers are sometimes reluctant to purchase due to the high cost of shipping.  In the case of the UK the $12 usd cards cost $11.20 to post, that’s $23.20 or £15.25 in Her Royal Sterling.  The prices DTRPG/RPGNow/DTCards charge for postage are standardised and there is almost no work around for us as a the small publisher.  However, by massively reducing the price of the cards for everyone for a limited period (until January 11th 2016), we’re hoping that this will make our playing cards more palatable to customers outside of the US.  In the case of the UK customer the total order for one pack will now will be $6.50+$11.20=$17.70 or £11.65. Still, not the cheapest price for a novelty roleplaying accessory, but  this reduction is close to the wholesale publisher price which we use to sell to stall vendors (i.e. it’s pretty much as low as we can go).  Of course this will mean our US cousins will be able to get them even cheaper, but hey, we probably have to them to thank for inventing money-off vouchers in the first place.  We really want to share these babies with the world, because, let’s face it, sometimes mass cult-like status can be way more satisfying than money.  We’re also hoping that if customers order now they may still be in time to receive the cards before Christmas.
