Stickers! Stamps!

Hello Hello!

I don't think I've ever posted on a different blog before so I hope this works...

Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who has said they'll take part. I haven't met many (any?) of you but this clearly proves you must be ace.

People have been asking about sticker designs and stuff so I just wanted to chip in with my opinion. I'm encouraging people to only get one design of sticker made for the Thing so that everyone that has a passport can collect all of the different stickers - rather than having to ask for multiple stickers from one person. It's sort of like having a passport - every country just uses one stamp design for everyone that passes through. If we ever do this again (which I really hope we do) then people could totally change the design of their sticker for every event!

Also, someone asked about rubber stamps - which is a brilliant idea! I'm currently trying to order one to stamp the front cover with - so great minds must think alike. Since the MOO stickers are 22mm by 22mm then the stamps shouldn't be much larger than this... maybe 35mm by 35mm at the most?

I think that's all for the time being. Don't forget to order your stickers sooner rather than later. We've got about 180 passports so you won't need any more than two books if you're planning on trying to get your sticker in every passport... which I am.

Stay out of trouble

Passports back from printers!

WOO! The blank-ready to be filled with exciting stickers- passports have arrived! Here is a quick photo:

I'm ordering my stickers from tonight, I'd recommend ordering your stickers by next week (if you can) to get them in time for the Thing (unless you are getting stamps or stickers from elsewhere in which case you need to work out when you should order by yourself!)

You can use existing work and it is easy to upload to moo so won't require much effort and is cheap! Of course you can do a new design for it if you want and I'd suggest just doing one sticker design just because otherwise people may want more than one sticker from you. That way if we run this at other events you can do a new sticker design for a new event perhaps.... we'll see how it goes anyway....

Thanks to everyone who has mentioned this places already, we already have lots of people involved (see right) hurrah! Please do mention it when you talk/blog/tweet/insert appropriate social network site here/etc about the convention if you are involved so people know they can collect stickers from you! stick stick stick collect collect collect, that's the catchphrase. It's not really, I'm just overtired and can't stop typing.

What is this nonsense?

DINO-SAW-US is an awesome sticker collector game that will launch at the Web and Mini Comix Thing March 27th 2010!

Artists- to be involved simply order your passport stickers from (£4.99 for a book of stickers) or get a passport style stamp made of your artwork, then mention you are part of the project so we can link you below. If you mention it on your blog too and spread the word then await millions of people (or maybe just two) who will visit your stall in order to collect their sticker (and hopefully buy loads of your stuff as well!)

Collectors- just come along to the Web and Mini Comix Thing in London (link below for details) where you can get a passport booklet for FREE! You can then take this passport to your favourite stalls who are participating and begin your collection of exclusive stickers! It's like a treasure hunt, but with stickers.

It's fun! And cool. And maybe you'll make some new friends.

Sorry if you read this and the right hand column so you read it twice (ha ha a trick!) Oh and the stickers/stamps you make don't have to be dinosaur related, we have just themed this to go with the Web and Mini Comix anthology theme this year which is DINOSAURS. You can make your stickers to go with your work (or dinosaurs if you want, anything is fine. But nothing rude.)
