Print Store on Store Envy
Ript Apparel has one of my favorite tee shirt designs today, Autoblocks. If you missed it before grab it today. You can also grab walking Bricks and an Avengers themed rock’em Socke’em robots shirt.
Store Envy which hosts my online store has just started taking a percentage of any sales from my marketplace store. Not only on the product price but also on shipping. It is similar to how ebay works for each market place sale they take tenth of each sale. That’s on top of what PayPal takes for each sale. So roughly 13% of each sale gets diverted to someone else. The main problem I have is that they didn’t give notice that they were going to do this. So I don’t know if I should pull items from the marketplace or just take less for my prints. I won’t make any changes till after Cyber Monday.
So if you are interested in my prints buy direct from my custom store (black background) and not the market place(white background). The way Storenvy is set up so everyone on has their own custom store. They can customize the store appearance however they want. Only their products appear in their store. Then there is the Marketplace. It has a standard look and everyone that wants can place their products in here. A customer can but prints from one store and gloves from another in one transaction. Customers can shop for one thing but find something completely different in the market place.
If you plan on buying anything from Storenvy look for the sellers Custom Store so they get more of the sale. These stores are independent businesses and in these times the small shop owner needs all the help they can get. Once again if you want any prints this holiday season buy here direct from my custom store or use the links in the sidebar.
Remember to shop small, and local this weekend.
Versa Bricks are the brain child of Jerry Schutt of Ohio. Like many of us as a child he would play with LEGO and Hot Wheels. He wanted to play with the two together and use bricks to build ramps for the cars. But the ramps were didn’t work as he planned. Fast forward to today. with his background in engineering, computer modeling software, 3D printers for prototypes, and his family, Versa Bricks can be a reality.
Jerry has launched a Kickstarter Project to fund Versa Bricks. There are six different Versa Brick blocks designed to connect LEGO, Hot Wheels, and K’nex toys. A seventh brick that would connect HO scale train track tracks is an unlockable stretch goal. The bricks will be red. They will be made of ABS material. The funding period opened on October 13 and ends on December 1, that’s just a week away. The Versa Bricks are projected to be delivered in March of next year.
The rewards that are offered include sets of Vera Bricks, the more you donate the more bricks you get, a key chain and holder set made from the versa Bricks, and a Desktop ramp that included a car and a minifig. Certain level s of donations get a bricks in a mystery color. The biggest donors can attend a build party in Whitehouse, Ohio, where they’ll build a massive creation using Versa Bricks, LEGO, K’Nex and hot wheels.
Funding period: Oct 13 2014 – Dec 1 2014 (48 days)
Estimated Delivery: March 2015
This is a pretty cool project. I wish them luck and hope to see these next spring.
