How long does it take to calculate?
A game with standard components is calculated in 3−4 days. We see as standard components cards, tiles, field, box + simple wooden and plastic chips.
Non-standard games are usually counted for 7−10 days. Such games have dice with printing or engraving, meeples with printing, plastic chips of new shape.
What about production time?
A simple game — 30−40 days. Includes box, cards, rules, tray.
An average game — 45−60 days (the game includes tiles and a field)
A complex game — 75−90 days. (the game needs to produce non-standard wooden or plastic components with a design and shape for the game)
How long does it generally take from sending the files to getting the game in my warehouse?
The average game should take 80−90 days from the moment you sign the contract and send files.
7−10 days for prepress and layout approval
45−55 days for production
7−15 days for delivery to Tallinn
5−10 days for delivery from Tallinn to your warehouse.
How does the approval process go before the print run?
We’ll print the game layouts and send you a preview. You may take a look, and if you’re happy with the result, we start the print run.
If the files are not enough to stay sure, we can make a prototype and send it by express delivery. Usually a prototype is ordered in the case of a critical print run, such as transferring a mass-produced hit game to a new production.
Will you inform me about the progress of the production?
Yes, we give intermediate production statuses and send photos of finished components.
If the production time is reduced or increased, we inform you in advance.
How does shipping work? Why you chose Tallinn as DAP?
To make it easier for our customers, we take care of export clearance from Russia and deliver the game to Europe — to the customs warehouse in Tallinn
You need to clear the game yourself and arrange delivery to your warehouse. Also, you need to pay the warehouse unloading the games, storage and delivery.
How is the print paid for?
Usually the print is paid 70/30. 70% is paid after signing the contract, the remaining 30% upon delivery to the bonded warehouse in Tallinn.
The bigger the print run, the better payment terms we can offer.
Also, we give special conditions for the first order up to 100% post-payment.
