Storefront items…

What’s up guys, just wanted to give you guys a heads up that I’ve been doing some work on The Chronicles storefront.  I’m basically all caught up on orders now with like maybe 1-2 orders pending but one of the main hold-ups was the blue vinyl for the “Like” button stickers. The more I looked at it, the more I wasn’t satisfied with the color. I usually order my vinyl online but I managed to find a vinyl supplier out here in LA recently when I was in a mad scramble to get some black vinyl. The spot is pretty cool, a little pricier than what I am used to but the best part about having a store to go to is the fact that I can actually look at the vinyl in person before I can make a decision on what to get. I know the blue was a little off on the “Like” button stickers so a couple days when I was over at the spot, I actually held up my phone browser that was logged on against different shades of blue until I found the closest one. The blue is more or a lavenderish tint so it looks much better than the old ones. I apologize to those of you who purchased them in the past and many of you may not even care but I’m pretty anal about stuff like that so I went out and got the right color…

This is a bad example since I shot it under the yellow desklight but hopefully it gives you a better idea of what the new version looks like. I kinda just made this for fun and many of you seem to like it so I thought it’d be cool to at least get them closer to the correct shade of blue…

Anyways, I also made some of these “SUPPORT PRINT” stickers. You guys always hear me ramble on about how we all need to support the magazine industry and maybe with these stickers, we can continue to help spread the word. Import automotive magazines are one of the contributing factors in the continued growth of our community and it would be a shame if our favorite magazines bit the dust because of financial reasons or because of the economy. I know many things have gone digital nowadays but there is nothing like holding a printed magazine in your hand and flipping through it to see your favorite cars. One of the best memories I can remember when I was younger was the excitement every month when I went to my mailbox and saw a new issue of my favorite magazine. That or going to newstands to find your friend or one of your favorite cars gracing the pages of Super Street, or Honda Tuning, or Import Tuner. It’s a good thing and I hope we never see the day when we don’t have printed material anymore to peruse. This is also important to me because my field of work is in publication and the magazine industry so if this industry ever dies out, I won’t have a job anymore and I certainly doubt that I would be able to show you all the cool behind the scenes shit that we do. I know this site is completely digital and some of you guys already see it as kind of a magazine but my line of work is one of the main factors is what keeps this site going… I know I don’t have to keep reiterating it, but please SUPPORT PRINT…

It’s for a good cause, haha…

I also added the newest Chronicles sticker to the store but they won’t be available yet until around Wekfest 2011. I want to debut the stickers there but it’s gotten such good feedback that I almost want to release them now so that you guys will be able to have these by the day of the event. I’m very happy with the new look and they will come in the most popular colors that were available on the older stickers. I also wanted to wait to release these until the new shirts were done but who knows…Anyways, here they are…

The reaction so far from the homies and from fans on Facebook has been overwhelmingly positive so I’m pretty excited to get these new stickers out. Maybe when I’m caught up on everything I’ll just make them available early. Alright, that’s it for today, I just want to thank everyone for their support and always giving me their feedback on how they feel the site and everything else is going….
