Happy Senior Citizen’s Day! Have you taken the time to talk to an elder lately? If you talk to the right ones you might hear some pretty cool stories. The wrong ones will just complain and make you sad.
Lately I've been trying to practice what I preach and sending more snail mail! It seems to be mostly belated birthday cards (ya know, after I read about someone's birthday on Facebook and go, "Oh shit. It's their birthday." Then I trek downstairs to my office, write out a card, and pop it in the mail. Anyways, now that I have POSTCARDS I'm extra excited to sit down and write out some good old fashion snail mail! So, if I happen to have your address you just might wanna keep an eye on your mailbox!
(FYI – Coffee Day is this month, so you should probably stock up on Coffee Day Postcards like right now. Now. Just do it.
In other news, it looks like I've already sold half of the calendars that I planned to make this year. So if you're at all considering buying one, you might wanna act fast! Though if you're in Vancouver or Toronto, please note that I will be heading your way for the One of a Kind Show in Toronto (but just the last six days) or for Vancouver I'll be back at Make It in December and I'm setting stock aside for both shows. But for those of you outside Toronto or Vancouver, you might have to order online unless a store near you stocks our shit! Not sure if the store has our calendars? Message me and I'll let you know! (Or get off your butt and go check the store!)
Finally, for all of you that wholesale our cards – Please get your Christmas card orders in as soon as possible (ie. before the end of the month… ideally).
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.)
Last year our 2016 calendars sold out fast. The first round sold out in October or something, so we were forced to make more to get us through the holidays! Even then, that second batch sold out before Christmas! We had several customers begging us to make more, but they're a lot of work… like a lot… so we didn't do a third batch. Now here we are in the final stages of designing our 2017 calendar and we're planning ahead on how many we should make! As we have in previous years, we're offering special pricing on all pre-orders! Not only do you save 25%, but you guarantee yourself a copy before they sell out!
Place your order today and the first batch is aiming to ship October 1st (or sooner).
WHOLESALERS – If you haven't already, check your inbox! We have an important message for you in regards to Christmas orders (which we'd love to get from you SOON!)
Wow, so that was fast. It's only October 14th and we're down to our last two calendars! Looks like we might have to make some more… YIKES!!! If you're wanting to get your copy shipped immediately, then order now! Otherwise it'll take weeks for our next batch to be ready.
UPDATE AS OF OCTOBER 23 – Calendars are back – though in limited supply! Order now here!!!
In other news, we did a little photo shoot with our Christmas gift tags and they look SO cute! So order these little cuties while you're at it.
