Hello again everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve posted.
I always know going into summer that I’ll be busy running around with the family and doing fun stuff. This summer has been great so far and it looks like the rain may be going away for a while which means more time out swimming and running around.
Work has remained steady with new requests coming in weekly and several large token jobs in the works. Yesterday my wife took the girls out for a while and I sat down to focus on getting 5 new token packs ready for the store. Prepping packs takes a bit of time so finding time to focus on the work can be tricky. I had started prepping things on Monday but needed a good block of time to finish them up.
Let me talk a bit about my current thoughts on releasing tokens. I maintain a 1 year exclusive usage on unique character tokens. So if you order a custom token for your character you are the only one that will get that token for one year. After that the token will most likely end up in a character pack. So the tokens I’m releasing now in the Heroic Characters line are all a year old. Custom monsters and generic characters will often end up in packs much sooner, usually when I have enough for a pack of similar tokens.
I’ve set up a spreadsheet to remind me of the sets I’ve released and the number of tokens in each. The cool thing I discovered is that I could quickly total up the number of tokens in various sets, like free tokens vs premium tokens, total number of tokens released etc. So here are some numbers:
I’ve released about 2,450 tokens to date.
Free tokens released: 1,041
Premium tokens: 1,409The new sets have a total of 143 tokens in them.
Also through the magic of computers I’ve found that I have already made over 250 tokens this year.
As always a huge thank you to everyone who makes it possible for me to make tokens. I appreciate every custom order and every purchase from the store. Thank you!
I should have the new sets in the store this afternoon. Here is a preview of the sets.
