For clarity, does the MAKEMEHAPPYSALLY code grant the mystery additional item on all orders, or only those over 35?

Over 35, it is essentially the same deal as the pre-order but instead of taking away the shipping which we cant afford to do we have given a 10% discount instead

Announcements and News / Salute 2012 PROMOTION
« on: February 21, 2012, 02:29:31 PM »
This year we can do the Salute promotion in two ways.  Over the years it has bothered us that customers who physically arent able to get to Salute because of its location, finances, work constraints etc can't benefit from the extra goodies that attending customers have.

Those who are attending:

Pre-orders.  From Monday 5th March the following code will be valid on the website until Monday 16th April 2012.  SALUTEPREORDER
This code can ONLY be used if you plan on attending the show and will collect your pre-packed order there. 
It gives you free shipping (obviously as you are collecting it) on any value of order. If you try to 'do a sneaky' we reserve the right to slap on 'cheeky tax' and charge you shipping costs!
Orders over 35 (excluding VAT) 42 including VAT will receive a free copy of the metal 'Statue of Liberty' figure.
plus when you collect your order at the show you will have a choice of 2 free sticker/decal sheets from a selection

REMEMBER:  We have a release on 26th March including the new Felicity, Hayden and a few other bits and bobs which you can include in this timeframe!


At the show
We will only have limited stocks of the metal 'Statue of Liberty' figure available for sale.  We will have a promotion at the show but it hasnt been finalised yet.   Casting issues mean it is unviable for us to put her into general metal production (the spikes on her headdress rip the mould) .The quantity has been estimated based upon previous Salute Sales figures and also volume of website orders during promotions.


Those who cant attend:

Sorry, we will miss you.  Maybe you can come along another year.
To cheer you up we have the following deal.

Enter the code MAKEMEHAPPYSALLY at checkout from Thursday 19th April 2012 to Monday 23rd April 2012 and get 10% off of your order value (before tax and shipping) plus a free copy of the metal 'Statue of Liberty' in your order on all orders over 35 (excluding VAT) and a mystery additional item.

************************************************************************************************************************************

The metal 'Statue of Liberty' figue is only going to be available for either Salute pre-orders, the Salute Website promotion or to buy at the show.  She will be available as a general release figure in resin.  On July 17th (my birthday) we will be releasing the conversion of this figure depicting me as Britannia.


Enjoy!  Any questions or if I have missed something out then just let me know!

thanks lots

Sally :)

this is an example of some of the Oriental releases.   There are two other sheets in this series of Japanese pictograms. The second sheet is Martial Arts and the third sheet is War & Weapons.

Each individual pictogram is approximately 4mm high, the series of two stacked measure up at approx 9mm high.

Artwork is also being done for Dragons (stylised and traditional)

The 'accessories' section is starting to build up nicely.  It is taking a while to get the backlogged older codes online along with the new releases coming through but i think we are getting there!

We are using different kinds of artwork for different effects. 

1:  Screenprinting:  The decals in this series are printed onto a backing and will slide off with no cutting out neccessary.  This is being used for some of the more complex Oriental artwork and also for the modern urban series. The most expensive of the 4 options with current pricing coming in at around 5 (plus VAT) per individual sheet.

2: ALPS printing:  Printing in white ink onto clear decal film gives an opacity to the design but you dont have to cut around it exactly as the film is clear.  About the same cost as screenprinting at the moment but we are working on bringing the cost down.

3: Laser Printing:  Full colour (CMYK) and mono from high spec printer onto clear and white decal film.  The more traditional method and reasonable priced at around 1.25 (plus vat) to 2 (plus vat) per individual sheet.

4: Sticker printing:  Full colour (CMYK) onto adhesive backed matt or glossy paper or film.  The idea of the sticker especially for the warehosue/warning signs/police tapes series is to make decorating terrain lots quicker and easier than applying decals...just cut , peel and stick and job done.  The first series onto the glossy paper is perfect for signifying shiny plastic posters.  Its also lots cheaper for us to get produced so we can pass the savings  onto you guys and it is coming in at 1 (+vat) per sheet with up to 90 images on some of the sheets.

Okay, give me  slap, I have been negligent in my duties.

i thought i had put updates on here but have just been informed that i didnt.

sorry :(

These are the two new production moulds that are being cast.  As you can see we have also slotted greens that have been resin cast ( for safety!) in the spare spaces.  These arent the actual layouts, I just use these so the caster knows what goes in what mould and also so i can work out allocations





As you can see there are two new dwarf packs as production runs.  The greens include the new Felicity with a mini gun, male dwarf, Hayden and Liberty.

I hope to pick up the production castings this week for release on monday and provided the masters are good enough i will be taking the next mould over to the casters for production the same week.

This means the March release wil be Felicity, Male Dwarf and Hayden as metal.

Liberty we have other plans for!

They look fantastic!

I`ve just placed an order, but the January discount code does not seem to work. Beside the time limit is there any other factor to be taken into account? (value of order etc.)?

Thanks in Advance!

Pictures of Gina, Rae, and Bat Kieran aren't working on their own pages.  Anyone else notice this?

they are working, i just havent got them up yet!  Instead of dipping them i primed them and photographed them as i ran out of time and wanted to get the releases up.  It wasnt until i looked at the images in photoshop that i realised i hadnt cleaned them up properly and had vent points visisble.  i did the thumbnails so that there was at least something on the website and will try and get the images sorted out as soon as the kids are inb ed

:metoo:
Put me down for these - preferably as decals  :thumbup:
Any chance of some plain biohazzard symbols without the border around them ? :angel:

yes....do you mean just the symbol itself on clear backing so you can out it on whatever surface you want or still in a triangle?

Rub-down, dry transfers would be my choice. Are they expensive to produce?

i can look into it but i think it would be a specialist printing house for that.
