Thank you everyone who stopped by our table at Boston Comic Con this past weekend! We had a great time and will consider returning next year, though our hope is more for Otakon.
So, with BCC behind me here's whats happening!
First up, if you haven't already heard, we did get into Another Anime Convention in Manchester, NH, so expect to see us in the fall and yes pick-up commissions are open for that!
Now, regarding commissions, there are going to be a few changes happening so even if you've commissioned me before or have read over my commission rules before and were thinking about commissioning me, please do so again because it may impact what you intend to commission me. Keep in mind these changes are to avoid price-hikes so they're more or less for your benefit.
1. No single charm commissions allowed.
It is not worth it for me to ship one lonely charm, regardless of pricing, and not worth it for you to pay for shipping which is often more than the charm itself. There will be a minimum of how many charms can be ordered. The only way this will change will be if I start selling on Etsy again, which I do hope to do but right now there will be a minimum. How many? Five minimum. Be it $1 apiece or $5 apiece, five shall be the count, and the number of the count shall be five. Keep in mind this is for charms ONLY. Keychains/miniz/lures and of course figures you can still buy in singles, and if you buy something else like the before-mentioned with the one charm, that can be done.
2. Limitation of price quotes
As of late I've been getting a lot
of people asking for price quotes and either adding to them every time I give them an answer or just dragging out the process to an unreasonable length. I'm not going to start charging for price quotes because I think that's ridiculous, however if we're 10+ transfers of information into decisions with no end in sight, I will ask you to take a step back and think over what you want before contacting me for another price quote. There is no rush, I RARELY close commissions. The price quote sheet I have everyone fill out before contacting me is there to minimize the back and forth process after all.
That's about all for now, commissions have reopened though it may take a week or so for me to actually start making things again.
