This Might Hurt Tarot Deck Preorders

Created by Isabella Rotman

This Might Hurt Tarot is a modern deck in the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition, backed on Kickstarter and currently in production. Keeping time-honored symbolism and imagery, but losing the medieval context, this deck is designed to be both easy to read and highly relatable. Clothing and scenery are modernized, diversity is embraced, and queerness is lovingly acknowledged.

Today is the LAST DAY to Fill Out Your Backer Surveys!
12 days ago – Sun, Jul 07, 2019 at 06:11:34 PM

Last Day for Surveys

Hello Everyone!

Just writing a quick update to remind you that today is the LAST DAY to fill out your backer surveys! Please do this today if you have not already! 92% of Surveys are in, but there are still a few that haven't been filled out.

Tomorrow morning, I'm going to lock your reward selections and charge cards for add-on item purchases and pledge upgrades. You can update your shipping address up until we lock addresses for shipping.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://thismighthurttarot.backerkit.com.

Thanks everyone for your support!

Website an Guidebook Update

In more exciting news, I have been working hard on the guidebook and website! Every card in the deck is now available to view on  https://www.thismighthurttarot.com. Eventually card descriptions will be added for each card and this website will serve as a digital guidebook that anyone with internet access can view anytime. 

The guidebook itself has been written and is currently being reviewed by my amazing team of test readers. Thank you Turnip, Elizabeth, Laura, Kelsey, Jon, and Luke! I will be using their feedback to complete yet another draft of the guidebook this coming week, at which point it will go to my amazing team of copy editors. Thank you Ramona, Dan, and Shawn!

Once the guidebook is in it's final form and ready to be turned into a book, we'll be laying it out in Indesign. My hope is to have all of this completely finished and send to print by the end of next week!

Thank you everyone one thousand times over for your support,

- Isabella

Last call for order updates!
14 days ago – Fri, Jul 05, 2019 at 02:26:32 PM

Hello incredible backers!

The last day to make final updates to your order is Sunday, July 7th. After this date, we will lock your reward selections and charge cards for add-on item purchases, pledge upgrades, and pre-orders. You can update your shipping address up until we lock addresses for shipping.

If you haven’t answered your survey yet, if you fill out your BackerKit survey or pay for extra shipping after the July 7th order due date, we’ll still receive your information but your shipment may be delayed.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://thismighthurttarot.backerkit.com.

THANK YOU!

Thank you all again for being so responsive to answering our BackerKit survey—even though it may not seem like much as an individual backer, you have no idea how tremendously helpful this has been for me when trying to keep track of all 752 of you!

Thanks everyone for your support!

Survey Deadline Extended to July 7th
22 days ago – Thu, Jun 27, 2019 at 10:37:18 PM

Hello wonderful backers!

At this point, 88% of you have filled out your survey! That's 667 people! THANK YOU! That's also 82 of you that haven't filled out your backer survey you. It is vital that surveys are filled out in order to receive your rewards! Surveys are how you let me know your shipping addresses, and what style shiny you would like on the edges of your deck.  To give you extra time I've extended the survey deadline to July 7th.

Preorders and add-ons will stay open until July 7th as well. As soon as surveys are closed the following day (July 8th) orders will be locked and cards will be charged. You will still be able to change your shipping address though until addresses are locked, which won't happen until decks are ready to be shipped in Autumn. So if you are moving or changing addresses between now and then, no worries! You will be able to adjust this as needed. 

In the meantime I've been pretty busy with traveling and other projects, but I'm making time to work on this guidebook! It's all going well and I have a first draft done! I'm going to polish it up into a second draft and send it to test readers next week, so that decks and guidebooks can be sent to print mid-July.

Thank you, everyone, for your continued support!

Surveys have been sent!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Jun 15, 2019 at 02:46:06 AM

Hello glorious backers!

I am excited to announce that I have just sent out surveys to all backers through backerkit! They are probably already in your inbox. These surveys are very important because this is how I will know where to send your reward and what type of edges you would like on your deck! The deadline for surveys is June 30th. Please please PLEASE have these surveys back to me by June 30th. I really want to get all of your rewards safely to you!

Add-ons will be available at the end of the survey! If you would like to add an extra deck or pin, you can do so for no additional shipping cost! This includes international shipping. Prints or adding on multiple decks may cause additional shipping costs. If you know anyone who would like a deck and missed the Kickstarter, no worries! Pre-orders are available through backerkit as well.

For a reminder of the shipping policy, please scroll down to the bottom of the "story" portion on the Kickstarter page.

Thank you a million times over!

Your surveys coming back to me fast like arrows!
Your surveys coming back to me fast like arrows!

Ya'll, WE DID IT!
about 2 months ago – Fri, May 24, 2019 at 10:52:43 PM

HOLY CRAP! 30 days, 743 backers, and $39,724 later and this Kickstarter is DONE! 

I am beyond happy and grateful about how this all turned out. I have always loved this project and felt confident that others would love it as well... but this is above and beyond. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Please stay tuned for further updates as we approach printing and shipping. Surveys will go out in about two weeks, after all payments have been processed. The surveys are how I know your mailed address and whether or not you want those nifty holographic black edges, so they are super important! You need to fill out the survey to get your reward. I'll let you know the deadline when surveys go out. At the end of the surveys will be an opportunity to add on extra pins, decks, or prints (at a discount) so don't miss out if you need to pick up an extra item for a friend. 

I'll also be setting up a pre-order link for anyone who missed the Kickstarter, which will be available until the survey deadline.

To celebrate, here is the completed Suit of Cups!
