Our first hats reached our paws last Monday and within a day they were already on some of the KunstSquad's heads. We're so chuffed with them we thought about keeping them all for ourselves. That would be selfish though, and that's something we ain't.
You can buy them in our shop (we said we're not selfish, not that we're stupid) and there's a few available in each style. That's bobbled or un-bobbled, cuffed or slouchy. All are of a kind of the pull-on beanie type variety. Yes, someone (no names mentioned) need clarification / coaching on how to put on a hat. This goes to show how patient we really are.
Well, it's not old. We've only just turned 4 months today. FOUR MONTHS OLD! That's 4 months that have gone by in a haze of graft, orders and laughs with the KunstSquad.
It's good that we've not had time to sit and blather-on on here . . . in some ways anyway. We must get better, and that we will. There's a few posts we've missed out, but, you know, the world hasn't stopped. This is swift (?!) update and a few shoutouts to some of the people who've become our Kunstrades already. Here we go:
That's right, 3 weeks into Kunstvoller launching and we're trotting off on holiday for a fortnight. No names mentioned about whose idea that was.
To be fair, it was booked months ago, when we expected to have been up and running for a while longer, with our own little racket of packers and deliverers working round the clock to deal with the floods of orders we'd be receiving. Or, the alternative version, that we'd be building up slowly, talking to ourselves online and nobody would even know we existed. We find ourselves somewhere in the middle, which means we're stupidly busy for a tiny team. Too busy to be leaving Kunstvoller HQ behind. We'll be having a 'working holiday' using the powers of technology when we find somewhere with a signal (no wifi where we're heading) and getting out the pens and paper for a bit of old-school style planning when we can't.
The Lil' Kunst is unleashed at last. He stars on the first release from our 'Original Collection' – the 'Lucky Lil Kunst' T-Shirt. Available for £18 as a nice limited-time launch price for the next week. Choose a colour (or two) that floats your boat. You'll also get a matching sticker 'cause he's not content with just being on your chest.
Speaking of stickers, we've got 100 sets sat here waiting to be sent out to 100 lucky people. For free. We know it's very generous – it's all part of our launch celebrations. The first 100 people to claim them here, or by ordering t-shirts, get themselves a nice set of 11 shiny, new, slappable designs.
What a weekend! T-shirts, stickers, compliments slips, stacks of envelopes and mailers all ready for launch. Most excitedly, our first batch of custom ordered t-shirts were hand delivered by our very own 'T-Shirtaclaus', Miss Brassique. She chose those names, not us. We're glad to say the receivers were very grateful to the givers . . . yeah, that means us! Kunstvoller baby!
Of course we have! Don't pull 20hr days without squeezing some writing in there too. This lads eyes match ours. Luckily, we wear them well – as does he. We're living the dream here so no complaining!
