Shanghai Family blog link, and product stock updates

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Shanghai family (a City Weekend production) put a small page up about the Magnets, but unfortunately didn’t put a link to us. Shanghai Lollipop, one of the stores that carries us got a link instead.

Wonderful. The page in question is here – http://www.shfamily.com/blog/2011/06/12/fresh-tips-bits-for-the-summer/

Oh well, some publicity is better than no publicity, and I have put a comment on their blog page about that.

In other news, we’re currently on our 3rd reprint for the Magnets – so they’re doing quite well.
We’re currently out of stock till the reprints arrive, mostly as my assistant didn’t order as many boxes as I asked for.

I told her to get 1000 boxes, she only ordered 500… and they take about 3 weeks from ordering till delivery. Doh!

So…. this time I took control, and I’ve re-ordered 5000 boxes now to ensure it doesn’t happen again, (plus a few thousand more magnets). We should have new stock at the end of the month assuming our printers don’t make the usual mistakes with the glue and we have to send them back yet again.
QC – something I do, and they don’t hehe…

Food, Glorious Food

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Some updates on what we’re up to, as its been a little quiet on the blog recently.
We’re currently working on Set #3 of our Fridge Lingo fridge magnets.

If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll note that Set #3 is about Food. Hence the “Food, Glorious Food” title 🙂
Given the lack of feedback from clients, this one is another lets just see how it goes style production.

Our initial topics added are 水果 (Fruit), 菜 (Vegetables), 饮料 (Drinks), 香料 (Spices), 量词 (Measure Words) and other 常用的 (Basics) like 牛奶(Milk), 鸡蛋(Eggs) and 米饭(Rice).

We’d love some comments, suggestions, or even photo’s of our sets in use on your Fridge, or other surfaces.

People ask us all the time, where oh where can I buy a set?

Online Vendors
Aside from the obvious Shanghai site listed on the right hand side, iWantOne.cn http://www.iwantone.cn
We also now have a new online retailer up in Beijing, with the nice people at Beijing home delivery carrying Set #1.  You can buy that, and more products from  Beijing Home Delivery http://www.beijinghomedelivery.com/fridgelingo.html

Retail Outlets
For those who don’t want the convenience of door to door delivery, you can brave the cold winter and visit one of the retail outlets who carry stock of the magnets around town.

Most of the retailers are in Jing An (and strangely enough all close to our office!).

You can find Set #1 at the following venues:

If you would also like to carry our magnets, drop an email to:  lawrence at iwantone dot cn, and we can talk.

Sex, in the City?

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

sex in the city
You asked for Sex, you got it.

Sex in the City has gone to the printers, and we should have our not some grubby hands on the new sets in 2-3 weeks.
Wondering why it took so long?

Our first attempt went out to select friends and the consensus was that while it was really really cool, it could be construed as too over the top.  We then went through revision after revision after revision – our final count was 57 versions!

All the clients that came to our offices also supplied us with suggestions, changes and additions which also got incorporated.

No doubt, despite the editing, re-editing we’ll still manage too offend, miss minor mistakes, and entertain and inform.

We just hope we don’t end up going to jail for being too naughty!
