Make It Vancouver

Tags: 

Yo dudes.  So in 1-weeks time we're gonna be busy setting up our booth at the Make It Show in Vancouver!  You'd be surprised at how much work goes into selling greeting cards  (it's more display than products!), but it's a hell of a lot easier doing a local show than it is traveling across Canada! 

Anyway, if you're in and around the Vancouver area next weekend (that's April 22, 23, 24th) then you should make an effort to stop by the PNE Forum for the Make It Show.  It's only $5 at the door [or $4 if you show them this flyer (on or phone or printed!)]  If you plan on going with a few buddies, you can buy your tickets ahead of time right from the Make It Show website and save up to 40% off! ($3/person with 3 or more people).  Now that's just smart planning.

And while you're at it, make note of where you can find us...



 

Thank You Ontario

We're back from Ontario and back to our normal shipping schedule for all online orders.  As before, it takes us about 3-4 days to process and ship your order, then Canada Post needs 4 business days for delivery in Canada, 4-7 for international.

A huge thank you goes out to all of you that visited us at the One of a Kind Show last week!  After being absent for 2 years, it was nice to know that we were not forgotten!  We might have mentioned it to you at the show, but if not please keep in mind that we will NOT be at the One of a Kind Christmas Show this year, so you'll need to get your Christmas cards online (or from one of our awesome Ontario retailers).

For those of you that signed up for our mailing list at the show, expect your coupon code and welcome email in the coming week (it takes us awhile to decipher your handwriting).
 

Online Order Shipping Delays

Tags: 

Hey folks,  if you're here to place an online order - thank you!  You're clearly an awesome person with an amazing sense of humour!

As a heads-up, there will be a delay in our shipping from March 21st to March 29th as we'll be packed up and in Toronto for the One of a Kind Show.  All orders placed between those dates will be shipped by April 1st (at the latest).  (Wholesale orders will need more time).

Thanks for your patience and apologies for the delay!

Happy St. Patrick's Day


Okay, so St. Patrick's Day isn't on a Tuesday this year, but you know what we mean!  Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone (also known around my house as our cats birthday!)

Next week is a big one for us... it's our return to Toronto for the Spring One of a Kind Show!  The show is so fucking phenomenal, we can't wait!  If you live in and around Toronto, you should definitely check it out.  We offer deals on things that you won't find on our website... plus you get to meet the brain behind the whole Hug and Kiss operation in person... so you can give her a fist bump and tell how how awesome she is.  Should you attend the show and want to find us, once through the main entrance walk 30 seconds and you'll find us in G-29 (see photo below).

For those of you in and around Vancouver, we have exciting news for you as well... we're signed up for the Spring Make It Show at the PNE Forum.  This is another phenomenal show that you have to check out!  Make It runs April 22nd to 24th, so we'll be sure to remind you a lot before then.



 

Free Tickets

Tags: 

Hey Ontario!  We have 10 free tickets for The One of a Kind Show to give away!  If you've never been, you HAVE to check it out.  Not only will we be there with our hilarious greeting cards, magnets, etc, but over 450 other amazing artisans will be too.  (It's seriously awesome).  If you HAVE been before, then you already know how awesome it is and you must be dying to know how to score one of the 10 free tickets I'm talking about...

Well, easy!  Just follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (links are at the bottom of this page) and tag us in a post.  On March 7th, we'll choose the winners at random.   The show is on the Easter long weekend, so unless you're the Easter bunny you must have at least one day off between the 23rd and 27th.


 

NEW STUFF

Tags: 

We have new products!  Not a huge amount, but a couple of new magnets and a couple of new Mother's Day/Father's Day/Parenting cards.  We're doing the One of a Kind Show in Toronto next month and seeing as it's our first time back in 3 years, we would have been embarrassed to show our faces without something new... so rejoice! 

Speaking of new, we also have a new booth and if I can speak frankly, it looks fucking AWESOME! So prepare yourself Ontario.  If you're a fan of the One of a Kind Show (or even if you've never been), stay tuned because we have FREE tickets to give away and we're just trying to figure out how to pick who gets 'em.





 

Valentine's Day/ Return of The Walking Dead

Tags: 

Around here, we're big fans of The Walking Dead (though come on, who isn't?!)

Last year when I started doodling the main characters as Hug and Kiss animals, I was strongly encouraged by customers to start selling them... so I did, as magnets!  Sure, it's totally different than what we normally do, but it's fun and people like them!  Plus, it's my company and I get to do what I want.

Anyway, even though this coming Sunday is Valentine's Day, I think I'm about 1,000 times more excited for the return of The Walking Dead!  Watching zombies get their skulls crushed in is super romantic.  Consider it foreplay.

And incase you missed it, you can buy our The Walking Dead art print (seen below) here or magnets here.

One of a Kind Spring Show

Around here, we've been super busy getting ready for our upcoming trip to Toronto for the One of a Kind Show.  The office is an absolute mess with display items, cards, boxes, paint brushes, and other shit everywhere!  But it's all good... the mess is temporary (ie. it'll be clean again in May when we've wrapped up our Spring tour).

It's been 3 years since we've been to Toronto, so we're really looking forward to heading back.  At this point we're unsure of whether or not we'll be back in Toronto for the Christmas OOAK Show, so if you normally skip the spring show, please reconsider!  We'd be sad to miss you.... plus you'll kick yourself for not stocking up on our cards (especially once you realize we offer deals at shows that aren't available online).

Anyway, back to designing new magnets.....

Happy Birthday To Us

Yesterday we turned 9-years-old! And even though you all forgot to wish us a Happy Birthday, we know you love us... and quite frankly, we love you too! We certainly wouldn't have lasted 9 years without at least a few of you.

Anyway, to celebrate we're having a birthday week sale! It'll end on Friday night around midnight (which is really Saturday morning when I wake up)... so order now!
