Hero Time were very smart in guiding us how to print what we want, how to save money, and how to achieve good quality. We printed over a dozen games through them. They did an amazing job and I recommend Hero Time to everyone.

Board Game Manufacturing for Projects of All Sizes

Founded in 2019 by Hersh Glueck, Hero Time is a leading board game manufacturer in China. We work with board game creators of all types and backgrounds to help you turn your vision into a reality, whether you’re crowdfunding your game via Kickstarter or already have a successful game and want to scale your production.
