We’ve got some important changes going on.
First things first, from now on all of our designs will be printed exclusively on either Organic Cotton, or other eco-friendly garments. (Organic cotton shirts are created without pesticides use significantly less water!)
We have four new shirts up for pre-order, and we’ve decided to do a reprint of the Shark shirts (which is also up for pre-order). This will be the last reprint of that design, though! This is your last chance to grab one if you haven’t already. (Sadly the reprint of the Shark shirt won’t be printed on organics because we can’t find an aqua colored organic shirt yet. But it will be printed with waterbased inks!)
With these new pre-orders, we want to announce our $5 dollar sale on all of our old designs printed with plastisol inks. (That’s 8 different designs for only $5!)
On top of all that: from now until the end of May, you can enter the discount code Motherboy X and receive a 10% discount on any order over $25.
Steve Orlando and I will be on the Hour 42 podcast tonight talking about Octobriana and the Kickstarter. You can phone in your questions at 646-716-4799! Or e-mail the show at firstname.lastname@example.org!
It airs live at 7pm Pacific Time at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/hour42/2010/04/26/hour-42
Also: there will be free mini comics of issue one of Octobriana and The Case of the Contagious Brain by Steve and Chaz Truog at Green Brain Comics in Michigan and Comix Zone in New York for Free Comic Book Day on May 1st!
Don’t forget! We’ll also be in Toronto on May 8th and 9th for TCAF with Megan Rose Gedris!
Hey guys! Lots going on this week! First thing first: YU+ME Volume One books are back in stock! So if you needed to introduce someone to the series, or start up your own collection, you’re good to go.
For those of you who may not have heard from us in a while, or are just checking us out for the first time, we have a few new products in stock:
With the relaunch of the store in February, we teamed up with the awesome folks over at Rosalarian Comics to bring even more awesome comics and shirts your way. Rosalarian publishes humor, drama, and slice-of-life comics alike; but every one is a gem. So feel free to drop in the store and check them out. Weâ€™re stoked to have these folks aboard!
Mike and I are going to be exhibiting tomorrow at a local show, SDSU’s first annual Entrepreneur Day. We’ll be on campus selling merch from 10am-3pm. So if you’re in the greater San Diego area, please swing by to buy some new stuff!
There’s also some new updates over in the Octobriana blog, so don’t hesitate to go check those out and pledge today! Only 40 DAYS to raise $4,889!
Next month, we’re going to be exhibiting at TCAF (The Toronto Comics Art Festival) on May 8th and 9th, 2010. We’re very excited about the show and hanging out with our Canadian friends/fans. We’ll be somewhere in the main atrium with a deep aqua tablecloth covered in books and shirts (looking very confused as we try and figure out the USD to CAD price conversion). So feel free to come by and say hello!
We had a great time this last weekend, so thanks to everyone who came out! We sold out of the No Arms Shark shirt and YUME volume one, so we’ll have to see what, if anything, we can do about that before TCAF next month. Thanks go out to Frank and Becky, Vince and co., Miriam and Mike, Justin and Hillary, Josh, Kat and Scott, Fiona Meng, Karen Luk, Leigh Dragoon, and so many others that made us feel welcome this weekend. We had a great time, and are looking to seeing everyone again who comes out for TCAF next month!
