MotW Dice

I found out recently that Chessex will do custom, laser-engraved dice, in fairly small batches are for a lot less than I'd think.  (As few as 10 dice, and at that volume, it's $1 per custom face.)

Taking inspiration from the image on the Monster of the Week IndieGoGo campaign and bolstering my largely-nonexistent artistic skills with bits from openclipart.org, I put together a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image, worked with the *amazingly* helpful folks at Chessex, and just today received 13 pairs of dice for our recently-started Monster of the Week campaign:

The guy I worked with at Chessex, by the way, was incredible -- attentive, professional, and helpful, and didn't care in the least that I was only going to order a very small batch of dice.  Delivered, my order came to a grand total of $29.50.

Nice!

I found Chessex really great to deal with when I got dice made for the IndieGoGo funders. Recommended!

They've made a fan for life of me, that's for sure.  I was up-front about the fact that I was getting a very small batch made, and was floored by how much time they spent with me just the same.  The guy I was working with even went to the trouble of producing a sample die, so I could see an image of what I would actually be getting if I placed an order.  Truly staggering.
