Frequently asked questions

Certainly! We offer additional services upon request, including product safety testing, to ensure that your games meet legislated requirements for toys and board games in jurisdictions worldwide. This is common feature of our board game manufacturing process, where we ensure the quality and safety of your game before it is shipped to you.

As the manufacturer producing your custom board game, we know your ideas might change as the project moves ahead. Whether you can change your order after you've submitted it depends on how far along your game is in the manufacturing process. If we're still in the planning stages or haven't started making your game yet, it's often possible to make changes. But once we've started production, it might be too late to change things because of how specific the game-making process is. If you want to change something, it's best to talk to your project manager. They can give you the best advice based on where we are in the process of making your game.

Absolutely! Part of the process of working with any custom board game manufacturer is the step before production, where we make a sample of your game and send it to you.

This sample is called the "pre-production copy" or PPC for short, and it's made with the same materials and techniques we'll use in the final product. Once you receive this copy, it's important to closely inspect every part of it, looking for issues that need fixing or tweaking before giving approval to proceed to production. This way, you can be sure your game looks and feels just the way you imagined before we start the full-scale custom board game production.

The minimum order quantity, or the smallest number of games you can order from us, is 1,000 games. This is because we use mass production processes like offset printing to make your custom board games. This process works best and is the most cost-effective when we're making at least 1,000 games at a time. So, if you're planning to order from us, using mass manufacturing, you'll need to order at least 1,000 games.

However, if you’re looking to order smaller quantities, consider using Launch Lab. Launch Lab streamlines custom board game production by allowing creators to reduce production time and costs through our Print-On-Demand (POD) technology. Learn more about custom board game printing with Launch Lab.

When we make a lot of copies of your board game, you can customise a lot of parts of it to make it exactly to your liking. You can pick different materials, sizes, and finishes for your game pieces, cards, and game board. In short, you can customise everything - from the tokens you use in the game to the dice, and even the box it comes in. Our goal in manufacturing your board game is to help make your unique ideas real in every part of your game. Just remember, if you can dream it, we can help you make it! Learn more about customisation on our platform.

Our project managers are always ready to help with the manufacturing of your custom game from start to finish. They can advise on how to prepare your production files and get your artwork ready, so it looks awesome when it's printed. Whether you're making a custom board game or card game, we're here to help make your game just like you imagined it.

Once production is complete, we prepare your shipment for dispatch. While occasionally a small number of games may be air freighted or trucked to their final destination, it's almost always the case that your games will travel by sea.

You might hear terms like FOB or EXW when we talk about the logistics of sending your games where they need to go. FOB, which is short for "Free on board" or "Freight on board", means that the cost of getting your goods onto the boat is included in the quote we gave you for your project. EXW, or "Ex Works", means you handle it all, including picking the game up from the factory.

Remember, our team is here to help you pick the best shipping option for your game. Don't hesitate to ask questions! We want to make sure your game arrives safely and on time.

As a custom card game manufacturer, we accept artwork in PDF format. We recommend using software like Adobe InDesign or Affinity Publisher to compile your files.

For some of the more complex components like boxes, we supply layout templates in PDF, but putting the files together is the client's responsibility. We strongly recommend using an experienced graphic designer to undertake this work as the requirements for files are highly technical.

Don't forget to ask us if you have any questions about how to save your artwork or what file formats are. We're here to help make creating your game as easy as possible.

Have any questions that aren’t covered above? You may find the answer over in our Help Centre.
