Speedball Knows Customer Service

When I was attempting to learn how to lino cut a few weeks ago, one of the cutters that came with the kit totally broke upon first use. I'm one of those curmudgeons who actually takes the time to write angry letter to my representatives so it shouldn't surprise you that I taped the broken cutter to a note explaining that it had broken and could they please send me a new one. Speedball sent me a whole box of them, which proves to me that they have got their customer service department together. Thanks, Speedball.


Indie Mart Next Sunday, July 24th

Renegade is clearly the biggest craft fair of the summer (and it went great!) but let me tell you that Indie Mart is nothing to sneeze at either. It's one day of well-selected local designers selling rad stuff on the street behind Thee Parkside in Potrero Hill. I've met some really cool people from this event. Plus, it will give you an excuse to shop and listen to bands (or DJs if that's your thing) while drinking and eating good food. So, it has everything! Say hi if you come by.


Renegade Prep

Last night we assembled a mock-up of our Renegade Booth (which will be booth #82, by the way) last night in our kitchen. Usually we merchandise while we're in the booth but this time, we actually planned where everything is going to go. It feels like we're getting it down. Renegade is this weekend (July 9th and 10th) so I should hope that we're at least somewhat prepared for it.

We've nicknamed the fixture with the window "Big Ben". Last week, I painted Big Ben black. I think he looks just fine in black.

I've got some new products and designs.


Guess what it says inside?
