Well, holy shit. It’s been 3 months since my last blog post! How does time go by so quickly? I would have been a little more “on it” with my posts, but in all honesty I totally forgot! Between orders, calendar designing, and social media posts, it just slipped my mind… (until just a few minutes ago!)
But I’m here. I’m always here!
For the most part I’ve been focused on finishing the designing of my 2021 calendar (it’s always a pain in the ass) and the good news is, I’M DONE! The designing at least. The calendars are at the print shop right now and once I have them back in my office I’ll be finishing the manufacturing and shipping out all the pre-orders (early November).
If you want to snag yourself a copy, I recommend ordering one (or more) soon! I print a very limited quantity and once they’re sold out, they’re sold out.
I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy out there. It’s a fucked up world.
Hey lovely people! For those of you that have been wondering, our 2020 calendar is officially done the design phase and it will be off to production after a quick proofread or two! Wahoo! (Designing calendars SUCKS the life out of me and I’m happy that I’m done that part… though the manufacturing sucks too!) Right now you can pre-order your copies at a special discounted price. Ordering early ensures that you get your hands on a copy and it helps us determine exactly how many to print, so do us both a favour and order before October 15th (When the price will go up to full retail and stock is not guaranteed).
Speaking of retailers – for all you of with wholesale accounts, remember that the Christmas deadline is October 15th. Get your orders in right away!
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!
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!
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!)
