Show Season

Tags: 

This past weekend we were exhibitors at Vancouver's Fan Expo.  It's totally different than most shows we do (ya know, craft shows where all the exhibitors hand make their items) and we had a blast! There were Storm Troopers, Deadpools, Jokers, cute Ewoks and hundreds of other characters that I'm clueless about and it took people-watching to a whole new level.

Anyway, the Fan Expo is over and now we're gearing up for our next batch of shows!  Just a few short hours ago our massive crate of display items and stock got picked up by our shipping company.  It's heading off to Edmonton for the Make It Show, which is only a week away!  Eek!!! We haven't been to Edmonton in YEARS and we're so excited to be going back! Yahoo!!!

Then we're back to Vancouver for the Make It Show at the PNE Forum December 8-11!!!  Last year was our return to the Make It Shows after a short hiatus, and it's nice to be back on their roster.  Honestly, the level of talent at this show is mind-blowing!  Come check us out!

 

Fan Expo

Tomorrow we'll be in Vancouver setting up our booth for the Fan Expo, which opens on Friday and runs through to Sunday!  This is our second time doing the show and we're pretty excited!  If you plan on attending, make sure to watch for our booth (It's number 300).  We're right near the VIP Entrance (cuz obviously the most important people deserve to see us first) and if you look for the black and white brick, that's us!

And for those of you in Ontario, I just want to apologize for our absence at the upcoming One of a Kind Show!  We absolutely LOVE the show, but we committed to doing shows out on the West Coast instead.  But the good news is, you can buy everything from the convenience of your own home! Hooray for online shopping!

Coasters Are Here

Tags: 

Our coasters arrived from the printer yesterday and we finished them in our office this afternoon by adding the cork backing!

Boy, they sure look cute all tucked into their Mandarin orange box-bed.

 

Halloween

Tags: 

Halloween is almost here and it made me want to dig up some October comic strips from our old calendars (my favourite is the green one).

And if you're a big fan of dressing up, perhaps you'll be joining the masses at the Vancouver Fan Expo on November 11-13th?  We're gonna be there and we're so excited to see all the wild costumes!



The Walking Dead ... Who's it Gonna Be?

Tags: 

Fan of The Walking Dead? Around this office we're huuuuuuggggeee fans and we're so excited for the show to come back this month! So we decided to have a little contest! Make your guess on who Negan will introduce to Lucille and you could win a set of our magnets! (retail value of over $70!)

Like any one of our social media pages (icons are at the bottom of this page) and make your guess on our page by the 15th and we'll pick a winner at random on the 18th... Don't worry if you don't guess correctly, all guesses will count. (Though obviously you'll look so much cooler if you guess correctly.)

Of course you could also buy yourself our Walking Dead magnets here... We've done 24 of our favourite characters with more to come! While you're here, you might want to check out our coaster designs too.  We're offering up over 60 different designs right now, but once the 15th hits we'll be narrowing the choice down to just a few!  So if you'd like to pre-order, do it now and you'll have a wider selection of choices.  I know I can't wait to get myself a few Walking Dead coasters!

Also, a Happy Thanksgiving to you!

NEW FAN ART AND FAN EXPO

Tags: 

Yesterday we received an email from the folks over at Fan Expo accepting our late application into the upcoming Vancouver show!  (We're awesome, so it's really not that surprising)... We did the show last year and it was so much fun seeing all the amazing work people put into their costumes.

Anyway, there's just over a month for us to prepare and one of the first things we have to get ready are a buttload of our new Fan Art Magnets, which include characters from The Walking Dead, Daredevil, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad (we're always working on new characters, so stay tuned).  We'll also be debuting our coasters, which we're super excited about!  Not to mention we'll have our usual display of Birthday cards, Christmas cards, 2017 calendars and all our other goodies!

      
     

 

Christmas is Coming

Tags: 

If you pre-ordered one (or more) of our calendars, then keep an eye on your mailbox!  We shipped off the first batch of calendars this morning and our second batch will be shipping out tomorrow! We're excited for people to finally see the finished product... those dang things are a crazy amount of work and they damn well better be appreciated!!!

If you plan on visiting us at the Make It Show in either Edmonton or Vancouver in November (Edmonton) or December (Vancouver), you can plan to grab yourself a copy of the calendar there, but please keep in mind we have limited stock! (In other words it's safer to buy one right now from right here.)

     

Coasters Are Coming

Tags: 

Interested in coasters? We're getting some made REAL soon, so we have a bunch of our designs available for pre-orders!  Until October 15th you can choose from over 60 different designs and we'll ship around the end of October!!!  There are our usual sassy, sarcastic, vulgar "Go Fuck Yourself" type designs, plus our Fan Art Coasters with some of the top characters from our favourite TV Shows!  Like "The Walking Dead"!!!!  My god, we love that show!  Anyway, if your living room is in need of a Daryl or Tara or Morgan coaster (or any of the other main characters)... order now!  Or perhaps you'd prefer a Heisenberg (Breaking Bad) or a Matt Murdoch (Daredevil) or a Jon Snow (Game of Thrones)?!?  Check them out!

When they go into production after the October 15th deadline we'll only be choosing a few of our designs and making limited quantities, so if you're at all interested, we strongly suggest ordering before the 15th so you guarantee to get the design and quantity you desire.

All the coasters are 3.75" x 3.75" x 0.125" (that's thin) and feature one of our designs printed on plastic resin with a cork backing.  They're also extremely durable and flexible and they look really friggin cute!

       
       
       

PS- they'll make great gifts for friends!  Think ahead to Christmas people... it's really not all that far way!

Coming Soon

Tags: 

Another small Canadian company approached us recently saying they wanted to put our designs onto coasters and when we saw the samples we were THRILLED!!! Honestly, they bypassed our expectations (which are extremely high).  We like to make everything ourselves, so to have someone else producing product for us is a little scary, but these guys know their shit! The coasters are printed on a plastic resin with a cork backing and they look so gosh darn cute around the office (not to mention they're actually functional as coasters!)  Anyway, we're currently in the process of figuring out which designs we want to make into coasters (which is difficult when we have so many different designs!) and we plan on having them available in time for Christmas! Hooray! Actually, we might even be putting up a sizeable selection of images that we'll turn into coasters and we'll give you wonderful customers the opportunity to pre-order at a special price before they make their official debut.  So stay tuned for that.... it'll probably happen.

Fight Procrastination Day

Tags: 

Today is Fight Procrastination Day, so I'm drinking a lot of coffee so I have the energy to catch up on all the work I've been putting off.

Ugh.  I'm already dreading it... the work, not the coffee.  Actually, what am I talking about?!?... the only part about this job I'm not so fond of is the paperwork (BOO to bookkeeping) the rest of it is enjoyable!  Bring on the creasing and cutting and folding and shrink wrapping!!! And the venti soya mocha!!!
