Federation Commander players, you told us you'd like to be able to buy individual laminated ship cards. We've put in a lot of effort and now you can.

Note this doesn't include the bonus ship cards.

Base shipping charge for how many cards ordered?

And have you considered discounts for larger orders?

As always, we'll adjust shipping downward if we can ship cheaper.

We won't be discounting. A booster pack has 7 cards and those would be $1.43 each. You get to cherry pick the ships you like and those must be pulled individually from various products. You are paying for convenience and labor.

SVC and I really had to push on this to get sales to agree to do it at all and this is the best price we could get agreement on.

Given the hand labor, $1.95 is a very cheap price.

Questions

1) Can I order through my local game store?

2) Will you sell laminated communique, CL, and e23 cards as individual cards, too? I'd pay for laminated color versions of those. If necessary, I'm good placing an order and waiting for you to make a print run as orders are made.

thx

These cards are only available through ADB's storefront.

At this point, there are no plans to release laminated Communique, Captain's Log, or e23 ships.

We can't do it through the stores. The stores don't really want to handle the special orders, and because of the hand labor, we couldn't give them a discount and they couldn't afford to do it without charging you extra service fees.

As for the other ships, I'm working on an idea to have people "pledge" to buy cards, and any card with enough nominations gets added to a "monthly run". I can economically produce very small quantities of the cards (25, 50) if I can sell them for $1.95 each and heck, the work is already done. Takes me about 5 minutes to send "this month's batch" to Whitney and the cards show up a week later. But stay tuned, I have other things to do before I get to that one.

You asked for it, and we did it.

All individual Federation Commander ship cards (even the bonus cards!) are now available. Each has a note for which title(s) it is in.

Pick yours up here: https://www.starfleetstore.com/individual-ship-cards-c-9_20/

I'm going to have to go through my binders and see what I have (it's been a few years). I'm pretty sure there's a few I'd wished I had duplicates of and this will be a great way to fill those holes, without resorting to self-printing and laminating. I know a second DDG card was one I was wanting - there's probably others.
