So I decided to make a Youtube video about the sizes of my bracelets and necklaces. Sometimes visuals are the best way to explain things. It's my first video ever so it's not the best, but hey I tried. You can watch it below. Let me know what you think!
Updates, updates, and more updates.
I was browsing the Subtle Nerd website recently and decided it was time for a change. It seemed too cluttered and overwhelming with its original layout. So now each section in the "Our Products" tab has a nice slideshow of the things we made in the past (there might be a few that have the original layout, but that will change soon) Now instead of scrolling through endless pictures of watertribe bracelets, there is a convenient slideshow with clickable thumbnails on the side. I also slimmed down the pictures themselves, it was time to get rid of some of the really really old things.
Next on the updates list is the wonderful search bar! I know, basically every website ever has a search bar, but its new here and I'm excited. Looking for something Mortal Kombat related but you don't see a tab for it? Use the search bar and find it in the "Misc." section with ease! It's the little things in life that make me happy :)
Finally, (and this is a big one) we have a fully functioning shop section (completed with shopping cart ^_^ ) The shop section is still a baby though so there isn't too many things in it. To be honest, I am still figuring out how it works, but its there and it's glorious. I will still be selling on Etsy, but I am going to try and shift my main shop to this website. It will be a slow processes but hopefully it will be for the better.
That's all for the updates for now. Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
The title of the post says it all. We are having a sale in our Etsy shop. Use the code 8BITLOVE and receive 20% off a purchase of $16 or more. (exactly what the flyer says ^_^). The code is good until 2-10-14, and you must place your orders on the 10th to have your package by Valentine's Day (USA only).
On another note, Gong Hey Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year to all! May the horse bring you good things this year!
Valentine's Day, a day to tell that special someone "I'll press pause for you" That is, if your a gamer like I am! I have been making a whole lot of "nerdy love" items for this mushy gushy holiday. They are heavily centered around video games, but I am trying to reach out to all nerds who love. There are a few items already up in the Etsy shop, and I do have some more to come. If you have an idea for that special someone that I haven't made yet, just send a request! Check out some of the images below to see what we have.
Greetings Subtle Nerds! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! I know I did!
Being that it is now a new year, I am going to be making some changes to how I work. Normally I'm not one of those "new year, new you" type people, but I figured eh what the heck, I was planing on making some changes anyway. First, I am going to make it my business to write more blogs! I've really slacked with doing that, and that's not good. I want to keep you guys in the know with what I am doing. I might also start doing video blogs...but we'll see (I'm more of a behind the camera kind of girl).
Some of my new years plans are already being put into action! For those of you who follow my instagram, I have been trying to post things every day. It's not always going to be Subtle Nerd related, but I do post progress pictures every so often. ( @harliquinjester if you would like to follow me) If you have an instagram and have purchased something from me before post a picture! Use the hashtag #subtlenerd I would love to see your Subtle Nerd items in action!
Next up, new items!! For those of you who have been around since the beginning of Subtle Nerd, you've probably noticed that we are mainly based in the production of jewelry. Now that wasn't the original goal; jewelry was always going to be a part of this company, just not the biggest component. My partner Mary and I are going to work our tails off to broaden our selection of items this year. We already have a lot of ideas, now we just need to make them!
I think that wraps up some of the things I wanted to talk about. More details on some of my working changes will be coming up soon.
Have a great day!
Greetings Subtle Nerds! I haven't written in a while, sorry about that. I hope everyone is doing great ^_^
Starting today, the Subtle Nerd Etsy shop has a new sub-section in it called "Glitches". This section is for all of the items that don't stand up to my expectation of quality. Every once in a while the images on my charms will bleed or discolor or something along those lines. Usually I just toss them in a container and forget about them. But they are starting to build up. So I decided I would sell them at a discount. I know I am a picky person so if something looks off even a little to me, it gets tossed to the side. Some of these glitches aren't as bad as others, so they will be priced according to the severity of the glitch. Shipping charges still apply and are still the same ( $3 for the USA, $5 International). I've already posted a few of these glitches so go check them out.
I can't believe we hit 1000 sales in out Etsy shop! To celebrate we are having a sale! Use the code 1000sales (only for the Etsy shop) and receive $5 off any purchase of $16 or more. The code is good from today (June 20th) until June 30th.
Welcome all new summoners and nerds alike! I have been getting a lot of requests for my Summoner Spell bracelet. Just to give everyone a bit of a rundown on whats going on with it. The original bracelet I had for sale sold out yesterday. I am going to be making more of them. Currently I am taking reservations on them, so if you are interested let me know. The cost of this specific bracelet is $25. I do have to order some of my missing supplies so I won't be able to start working on them until that shipment comes in. I am going to start prepping the things I can so once the missing components come in I can finish them off quickly.
As of right now the way I am keeping a queue of everyone is by making reserved listings on Etsy. I might post a made to order listing if I have enough people asking for it. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
Thank you all for visiting!
Starting midnight tonight (EST) till midnight on May 5th (EST) all Star Wars merchandise will have free shipping! This is to honor Star Wars day (May the fourth be with you). Even custom items (only Star Wars related) will have free shipping as long as you request the items during the promotion.
This offer is only good on Star Wars related items. If a Star Wars item is purchase with another item, shipping standers will be applied to the other item.
Has it been almost a month since I posted?? Sorry about that folks. I've been busy making custom orders and getting ready for Pax East. But now that it is over I have time to re-vamp the Subtle Nerd website! It is a very long process I'm afraid. But you can already notice a few new things.
I have split up the Avatar the Last Airbender section into sub-categories. There is now a tab for each of the elements for easy viewing. The pai sho and mutli-charmed things are still on the main Airbender page.
I've also added a few new games in the Misc. section, so if you are looking for a game don't forget to check that section!!! Once it gets too big I will take some of the bigger games out and give them their own tabs.
Once again if you haven't heard, I have decided to keep selling through Etsy. As of right now it is the easiest way for everyone. If anything changes with that I will be sure to write about it!
Well that about wraps it up for this entry. Thanks for reading, and have a great week!!
