We hope you're all having a lovely Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
We would like to ask for patience with our release of our Ciderfest Sales Records and payments as many of our staffers have been away and traveling for this holiday week. We will be resuming work as usual ASAP and making sure we get everyone's payments out as quickly as we can. This is just a note that it may take a few days extra because of the holiday. Please contact us anytime if you have questions or concerns.
And now for our post convention info update :
We had a great time at Ponyville Ciderfest last weekend. It was a long drive for us as usual (16 + hours) but we had a blast.
However, we also ran into some issues. Day 1, Friday, both of our printers short circuited in the vendor hall due to the electricians not providing proper power drops. Unfortunately that means we were unable to make print sales all day on Friday so we pushed our physical sales. The good news : we got one of our printers back online Friday night after repairs and were able to continue the convention as normal. The bad news : our second printer is currently permanently broken. We will be contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed or replaced. We have already taken it up with the Ponyville Ciderfest head so no worries. In other news, we almost blacked out the vendor hall with our printers because of the power drain so we moved our working printer up to our hotel room and had our staffer Star Strider ferry prints to the vendor hall. There were a lot of power issues at this convention including but not limited to the concert blacking out most of the hotel. Thankfully we were able to run our working printer in our convention hotel room normally and Saturday and Sunday printing went great.
We will also be signing on three new physical vendors with us - a colored glass etcher and leather ear maker, a bow and button maker, and a wooden coaster carver. Stay tuned. Please also let us know if you are interested in physical sales with us.
Our next convention is PonyCon NYC with a full room museum display on Feb 13-15th. All items, sale and display, need to arrive before Feb 12th for the convention.
We'd also like to remind everyone to please make sure you have sent us high resolution files - preferably 300 dpi. We have noticed that some art prints have come out grainy because of poor file resolution. We will be letting you know who had art file issues with us soon.
And now some fun facts about Wisconsin where Ponyville Ciderfest was held:
Wisconsin has a huge German population
Wisconsin is famous for their cheese
Wisconsin is really, really, REALLY cold and our museum head, Inky Notebook, forgot to bring a winter coat with her. Oops.
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend everyone! Please look forward to our next update email coming in the next week with our sales records and payments.
