2013 – the Chinese year of the Tees
A hippetty hoppetty happetty new year to one and all… if you are one of those sorts. Or, if like us, you’d prefer your life to still be lingering around the end of December and knee deep in smelly cheese and cheap wine… nevermind, not long to wait.
2012 was a massive year for the Arcane team, so if you are one of those shrewd consumers who bought some of our stuff, thanks. We hope you are wearing it with pride. Or if you saved your ching-ching to go down the boozer but instead spent your hard-earned time submitting ideas for new tees, clothing lines, entered one of our competitions, liked or shared a Facebook update, retweeted… you get the idea – cheers.
If you did all that and helped to pay our bills – well, you’re our best friends of the lot.
So, the observant amongst you will notice that this is our first blog post in ages. Afraid the old business of conceiving, designing, printing and distributing all our wonderful stock rather got in the way. That and a little bit of laziness! But new years are meant for new starts, so we hereby declare that we’ll be spreading the love through our prose in more regular fashion in 2013. For the record, our other resolutions are no booze before 7pm, finally agreeing on our top 100 films of all time, and trying not to get sued by over zealous Hollywood lawyers.
A massive thanks to everyone who ordered in the lead up to Xmas. Just how much you seem to like what we do came as a bit of a shock and delight in equal measure. We will admit that we were slightly unprepared and had to call in some yuletide favours from our printer friends and stockists, but with the love of the baby Jesus on our side we got everything printed, packed, shipped and delivered! A massive hand to one of our own, Paul, for surviving on no sleep and packing orders with a new born baby strapped to his back! We doth our caps squire (but ain’t volunteering for nappy changes yet!)
On a semi-serious note 2012 gave us real encouragement that we can make a good fist of this hopefully-soon-not-to-be-little business of ours. So please do keep supporting us, in whatever way you can – but mainly by buying stuff. In return for helping us stave off careers as accountants and credit controllers, we’ll do our best to keep giving you tees that you’ll love.
Here goes then…
