Why are board games printed on drawstring bags?
Because that was the idea of the games. We wanted to do something less traditional, but equally interesting and, above all, practical. The drawstring bags are the perfect material for the boards for our games, which you take with you to school, to the park, on a trip, to extracurricular activities. Easy to transport and waterproof. They have many different uses. Much more resistant than traditional cardboard game boards. They take up little space, you can hang them on a hanger, put them in a backpack, carry various things in them. They are easy to clean, move and take apart. They are great advertising material for your company.
How to take care of the drawstring bag? The details of fabric maintenance are very simple: remove stains and dirt with a soft sponge and a solution of water and soap (temperature 30°C), or mild cleaning agents. Do not clean with aggressive chemicals containing solvents and bleaches. Ironing above 90ºC is not recommended. When ironing, the fabric should be covered with a different fabric so that the iron does not touch the bag directly. Composition: 100% polyester coated with polyurethane on one side. (PU/WD). Weight: 190g / m2.
Why do you also print board games on t-shirts?
Because they are easy to print and personalize. T-shirts and drawstring bags are perfect for boards for our games. They are easy to use and clean. Various board designs from black and white to color can be applied to them. These t-shirts can also be worn regardless of whether someone wants to play the game or not. Of course, it is understandable that if someone puts on a T-shirt and spends the whole day in it, it will not be the best choice to play, because it will not be the freshest, however it is suitable to wear it 🙂 The board on the T-shirt is just our choice of material for the board. Also, as well as drawstring bags, they are ideal for advertising and promotional materials for your company.
How to prepare the t-shirt board game before the first use? It is recommended to wash the t-shirt. In order to use it as long as possible, please follow the steps below:
- Wash the T-shirt on the inside out at 30ºC (maximum 40ºC);
- Set the spin speed to no more than 400 rpm;
- Do not tumble dry;
- Do not use bleach or chlorine, do not dry clean;
- Iron the inside of the T-shirt at a maximum temperature of 150°C.
Why do you use an online card for games instead of traditional printed cards on cardboard?
This is our proprietary and innovative solution that gives us unlimited possibilities to expand all our games with rich sets of cards. Most of our creative games only use online cards (instead of traditional ones) when playing. The cards contain texts, graphics, pictures and multimedia elements in the form of mp3 files containing sounds or mp4 files containing video content. For each game, we are able to prepare various sets of cards with the possibility of their expansion. Thanks to this, playing becomes even more interesting, because we do not limit ourselves to the capacity of traditional cards in a box. We are able to edit existing card sets and create new ones at any time. This solution also allows us to create multilingual cards. Currently, most cards are available in English and Polish.
Do I have to pay for online access to cards?
Access to the basic card sets used in our creative games is free. Each player who owns our game can use these sets at any time during any game. Due to the fact that our designed game tools give us many new possibilities, in addition to basic sets of game cards, we also offer access to more extensive sets of universal cards. You need a subscription for this. Universal cards are divided into several thematic sections, which makes them easy to manage. In the subscription, the basic sets of game cards are extended with additional cards that are not included in the basic version.
Each order of a board game in our online store or from our partners automatically comes with a special code that activates access to PREMIUM online cards for a certain number of days (the so-called ADVANCED subscription). Currently, there are 4415 + online cards for various games in our offer. We systematically increase the number of card sets. You always get more with subscription …
