The last time I posted anything onto here was on June 8th. A lot has happened since then. I’m making it a genuine goal to attempt to post more often.
So what’s new?
Well. In the past eight months I’ve been featured in Kerrang and Classic Rock magazine. That was pretty ace. The Kerrang issue was the one containing a review for Refused’s first album for 17 years. I love Refused so that was massive for me.
I also provided a metric shitload of Don’t Be A Dick fridge magnets for the Classic Rock Awards in November, to be given out in goodie bags to attendees. They’re now in the safe hands of Alice Cooper and Chris Jericho,among others. That was pretty fucking cool.
While all that was going on I was looking into getting funding to enable me to grow in a bunch of ways. Sorted all that out and got that through at the start of this year. I’m using the money to purchase equipment to start making most of my products myself rather than using suppliers. That’ll reduce lead times, so you’ll start to receive items more quickly when you order them, and also mean I have more control over releasing one off items like tote bags and cushion covers. It’s basically better for everyone.
AND I’ve taken the next step in getting my brand out there by attending tattoo conventions. I did my first one at the start of February and I’m now looking into the next few. I’d like to try to do six this year so if you can think of any where my stuff would go down well just let me know!
Finally, I’ve relented and decided to give Facebook another bash. I hate it but it might be good for business, which is what I need at the end of the day. I feel like a sell out but I got bills to pay so fuck you.
There’s probably more but I’d rather show you my magazine features and tell you to buy things from mrcrypt.bigcartel.com
