March Dice Delay

Just an update that due to the ongoing COVID situation our March subscription dice announcement and shipping will be delayed.

What is the difference between handpoured and handmade dice?

Recently we've seen a number of dice kickstarters toss in the term hand-poured and allude to the idea that their dice are handmade. In the interest of clarity we wanted to unpack this a little bit. For the record all resin dice are hand-poured that is just part of the process of pouring the liquid resin into the mold.
