FAQ
How long does it take to estimate price?
A game with standard components counts in 3-4 days. Standard components are cards, tiles, field, box + simple wooden and plastic counters.
Non-standard games are usually counted for 7-10 days. This is if the game has printed or engraved dice, printed meeples, plastic chips with new shapes.
How about production time?
Simple game - 30-40 days. Includes box, cards, rules and tray.
Average game - 45-60 days.The game includes tiles and a field.
Complex game - 75-90 days. The game needs to produce non-standard wooden or plastic components with a design and shape to match the game.
How long does it generally take from sending the files to receiving the game at my warehouse?
For an average game, you should allow 80-90 days from signing the contract and sending the 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 will lay out the game on printed files and send you a preview. You take a look, and if you're happy with it, we launch the print run.
If the files are not enough, we can make a prototype and send it by express delivery. Usually a prototype is ordered in the case of a critical print run, e.g. transferring a mass-produced hit game to a new production.
Is there any information on the progress of the proceedings?
Yes, we give intermediate production statuses and send photos of finished components.
If the production time is shortened or extended, 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 have to clear the game yourself and arrange delivery to your warehouse.
Also, you have to pay the warehouse for the unloading of the games, storage and loading for delivery to your warehouse.
How is the print paid for?
Usually the print is paid 70/30. 70% payable upon signing the contract, the remaining 30% upon delivery to the bonded warehouse in Tallinn.
The larger the print run, the more favourable payment terms we can offer.
We also give special conditions for the first order up to 100% post-payment.
