A couple of weeks ago I had this great idea to make postcards! In no time at all I had 15 designs ready and sent to the printer! They're here now and ready for you to mail to your friends. Or keep. Or whatever. Each card celebrates one of those funny little holidays you hear about on the radio… or read about on Facebook. You know the ones, Coffee Day, etc. Buy individually or pick up the whole set!
Our calendars will be off to the printers soon! Wahoo!!! I'll tell you, as much as I absolutely love our calendars, they are a fucking pain in the ass to make! Getting all the dates correct, adding in the holidays, writing captions, coming up with comic strips… It's a lot of work. And that's just the design side! Once the calendars are designed and proofread (a couple of times, by a couple of people), they are sent to the printers. Then we get them, cut them to size, punch the holes for the coil, twirl the coil through, punch the hole for hanging, and then we shrink wrap each one! It's rewarding, but difficult. Very difficult.
So why am I going on and on about the calendars?! Well, since they are such a pain in the ass to make, we only make a limited supply. And we want to make sure you folks that really want one, get one… so we're having our pre-order sale. Until the end of August our calendars are a special pre-order price of $15.00 (normally $20). Once those babies are hot off the press (then cut/bound/wrapped/etc) we'll start shipping them out. Meaning you can have one in your dirty little hands by mid-September – early-October. (Did someone say early Christmas shopping?)
Anyway, they're up, so shop away!
Last summer I went camping with my family and it inspired this comic strip…. Yeah… that trip wasn't the best. Though, I admit I took a few creative liberties with the bit about the rain. I went camping with my family again just the other day and, well, let me just say that I'm sure one day I'll be creating another comic strip about camping trips.
ANYWAYS, now that I'm back at the office I'm busy working on my 2018 calendars, which will be available for pre-order sometime this month. I'm not going to lie, calendars are a pain in the ass to design and produce, but I do it because I know there are a bunch of you that NEED to have one every year (I know because I've been told this by several of you)… So be sure to keep checking back, because once they sell out, they are gone and I don't want a bunch of emails asking me if I'm going to make more. Because I won't make more. I just won't. (Okay, I'm in a bit of a grumpy mood writing this because my feet are covered in bug bites and they are itchy motherfuckers!!!)
