Journal

Hello, must admit that I am not much of a “blogger” but I have put together this little area that I call the journal. It allows me to update anyone interested on the various projects I am working on and thinking about. I am seriously trying to post much more frequently but that is a little challenging right now as I am working on “the important stuff” and not really composing my ideas on the screen.

Use the nav below to focus in on a particular topic.

Iron Ons Work?

Bag of Hoarding Packaging Gets a Facelift

So the extra large Bag of Hoarding has been a tremendous success. I never thought it would catch on the way it has, I actually thought the large bag (which hold 450+ dice) would just fit the needs of a "few" gamers. Well, I am currently sold out for the 2nd time. In fact I [...]

Third Die was happy to provide 6 premium dice bags to help with the festivities at Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia in September.

My contact Chris Conrad was running 5 games of Exalted (White Wolf) during the event and wanted some dice bags to offer as prizes.

Celtic Cross Test Printing V1

Whilst messing around with a complicated (yet elegant)  Celtic cross design for our new Celtic dice bags, I stumbled upon a new printing technique that allows for really fine lines (and thus some pretty complicated designs) to apply to our excellent fabric we use.
