We’ll be kicking off this years convention season this weekend as we head to the Edinburgh Corn Exchange for Capital Sci-fi Con.
Capital Sci-fi Con is a non-profit convention and raises a phenomenal amount for charity and is in it’s 5th year. We’ve been involved every year, not only trading at the event we are proud to sponsor this even by providing their volunteer t-shirts.
We’ve been preparing loads of great stock for the event including a whole host of new, never been seen before products so don’t forget to drop by .
We want to thank our followers for keeping up to date with what we’re doing so…
Every Winsday we’ll offer something for our followers to win through our social media platforms and our newsletter, everyone is allowed one entry per platform (so follow us on Twitter, Facebook and join our Newsletter for maximum chances). Our competitions will be free and simple to enter.
After a short outage earlier this week, our website is back online and although it may not look much different, we’ve been working very hard in the background for several months to upgrade the site so it’s more reliable, quicker, and more secure than ever.
As with all major updates we have had to make a few tough decisions which will impact our existing customers which I’ll try to explain here
We’ve taken the decision not to carry over our customer data.
Our previous website database held the personal details of thousands of happy shoppers from the last 5 years. We could have transferred all the details to our new system, however not doing so will allow us to ensure the security of our past “one time” customers and also to start fresh with things like newsletters so only people who want to keep in the loop will be.
What About XP Points?
We have records of customers XP Points, so no-one will loose out, if you choose to re-register on our website and believe you had points, please drop us an email and they will be re-added to you account along with 50 bonus points for your trouble
What About My Affiliate Earnings?
Don’t worry our affiliate accounts have been transferred over, I know some of you have quite a bit of earnings through the site, they are safe. You will have to use the lost password function when logging in for the first time as we have never have access to customer passwords so couldn’t transfer that over. One great new thing about the new system is your affiliate earnings can be spent as store credit without needing to get in touch first. We will be emailing all affiliates over the coming weeks as we want to work closer with you guys this year to make sure you’re getting the most out of our service.
Notice Anything Out Of Sorts?
Budding bug hunters, if you spot anything that’s not quite as it should be please get in touch so I can take a look and fix it. I always look to reward bug reports and good suggestions so keep your eyes peeled and email us at email@example.com with all bugs, comments and suggestions.
The eagle eyed will have noticed a few weeks ago all of our coasters went out of stock on our website, ebay and Amazon stores, our coaster offerings at our pop-up stores were looking a little slim too! The simple reason behind this was our supplier had none in stock when we wanted to order them..
Fear not, there’s a new batch on their way to us tomorrow so they are back on our website ready for you guys to order!
Ok, Not really… but our new Blade Sketch range is pretty sweet.
In my spare time, I love to binge Forged in Fire, which has inspired our newest range of shirts featuring sketches of bladed weapons. We plan to expand this range over the upcoming months so let us know your favourite bladed weapons.
Our offices will be closing on Thursday 11th July 2019 for two weeks, everything ordered after 9am on the 11th will be processed on Thursday 25th july 2019.
Closing is not a decision we take lightly, however as a small family business we often work 16+ hour days and 7 day weeks so it’s important we take a little time out every now and again to spend time with our family to relax.
We wont be turning off ordering on the website, however we will be making it very clear through notification bars on ordering pages there will be a delay in shipping.
When we come back well get right back to it and all orders made on our website between 11th-24th July will receive a free gift to say thanks for waiting.
There’s a rumour that you can never have too many dice, which is why we developed The Dice Club a monthly subscription box especially for folk who love dice.
After hearing horror stories from other subscription boxes, we’ve tried to make it as simple as possible which means:
A clear pricing structure.
No rolling subscriptions.
No surprise money taken from your account
No need to cancel if you don’t want to carry on.
We offer a trial, which is basically 2 or more sets of great dice in a Dice club dice bag or you can subscribe for 3 or 6 months at a time and with your first month’s dice you’ll get some freebies as a thanks for signing up.
Once your subscription is up, if you want more dice every month you can subscribe again or if it’s not for you, don’t subscribe again. You’ll never have to jump through hoops to cancel and we’ll never charge you unexpectedly.
Although my timing was out and I’m not yet finished re-binging season 1 for many of you it’s Discovery Day!
Star Trek Discovery is just as good the second time round, and I’m looking forward to season 2 Fridays. I hope you guys enjoy it too, even if you’ve not been Star Trek fans in the past, give it a go, I know this series has been well received by non Trekkie’s but don’t forget, in-between episodes check out our Star Trek Merchandise, our Netflix subscription depends on you!
