Special Announcement: iPad Mini Giveaway!!

This contest is officially closed! Winners will be announced on Monday July 29th at 8 pm. Good luck and thank you for your support!


I want to say a special thank you to everyone that backed me on KS. You guys really changed my life with your support, your pledges, and your advice and fellowship. It's been incredible! So I figured the best way to show you what this has meant to me would be to give a little something back… like an iPad! So that's what I'm doing, and here are the rules for this giveaway: 

Ipad Mini Giveaway Rules:

This contest is open to anyone - not just backers (in accordance with giveaway laws). Here are the prizes:

1 First Place winner will be randomly chosen and will receive an iPad mini Wi-Fi 16 GB in your choice of white or black (delivered after the contest ends). The winner will also receive a limited edition, signed Calaveras print that won't be available anywhere except Dead On Paper (delivered December 2013 at the latest).

3 Second Place winners will be randomly chosen to win a Calaveras coin, a limited edition and signed Calaveras print that won't be available anywhere except Dead On Paper, and both Sticker Packs (print, stickers, and coin delivered December 2013 at the latest).

5 Third Place winners will be randomly chosen to win both Calaveras sticker packs  (delivered December 2013 at the latest).

You can be entered to win several times based on the list below:

5 entries: Sign up for Dead on Paper mailing list (lower right of this page, bottom if you're on mobile)

3 entries: If you backed the Calaveras project on Kickstarter (most of you should already have done this, but the contest needs to be open to anyone)

2 entries: Share Dead On Paper artist page on Facebook

1 entry: Leave a comment on this blog post

1 entry: Like Dead On Paper artist page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/deadonpaper , if you've already done this, just mention it in your email)

1 entry: Mention Dead On Paper on your blog (www.deadonpaper.com)

1 entry: Mention Dead On Paper on your website

Just email us (once please, no need for multiple emails as only one will be honored) at contest@deadonpaper.com with how many entries you have earned for this contest and any links to blogs/webpages. You MUST email us at this address to be entered (note, you won't be contacted in the future for anything unless you sign up for the mailing list).

For example:

"Hi Chris, I left a comment, signed up for your mailing list, liked your FB page, shared a link to your page, mentioned you on my blog, and backed the Calaveras project on kickstarter for a total of 13 entries. Here is the link to my blog post: www….."

The winner will be randomly chosen on Monday July 29, 2013. We will email you and also post your name on DeadOnPaper.com and on FB as the winner. The iPad Mini will be immediately ordered and shipped to the winner, the other rewards will be shipped in December when everything else goes out.

This contest will be open until 12pm (noon) this Friday, July 26th. Any email entries received after that time will not be honored, so get crackalackin! We'll need the weekend to confirm everyone's submission (no cheating, 'cause we're going to check), and by Monday we'll release the winners' names. We'd also love it if the winners would post pics of the iPad and other prizes on their FB page or blog, etc. so we could link to it!

Good luck, and THANK YOU for making Calaveras a success!!!!





  • I had almost stopped backing Kickstarter playing card projects, but these were so visually compelling I couldn’t not back them. I’m really looking forward to the cards, and seeing what you do next.

  • Hi James! I will definitely let you know (I’ll FB you) when the T-shirts are up! We’re working with a great local company to get them printed and we will most likely have them up well before DotD. I can’t wait!! Thanks so much!!

  • Matthew Stubbs, the contest is definitely open to Brits :) Just keep in mind that the iPad will be bought here in the US, so if you need to get it serviced at any point, you may have to send it back over here to get that done? I am just guessing-there isn’t a whole lot of info out there about it. Also, the charging cord may not work in your outlets so you might have to purchase a different one. That said, you are more than welcome to enter! Good luck to you and thanks again for your support!

  • I was a missionary in Mexico City for 2 years, and I absolutely LOVE the homage that your art pays to el dia de los muertos in Mexico.

  • These cards are amazing! They are the only reason I joined Kickstarter in the first place. Hope it’s not offensive that I plan to actually use them for poker nights.
