Dave!Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Still working on the Artificial Duck Co. Store. I've got one more page to build and test before I can go online... probably tomorrow morning (this stuff is complicated!). The good news is that enough people expressed interest in the Blogography Playing Cards that I doubled my order and got some pretty sweet pricing. Hopefully a lot of people will want to buy them or else I'm going to be sitting on a LOT of cards for a very long time.

In other news... SHIRTS, BITCH!!

The winner (by quite a large margin) was MONKEY BUTTON!!!

Monkey Button

The runner-up (in a much closer race) was BAD MONKEY GYM!!!

Bad Monkey Gym

I will be printing both of them. The "Classic T-Shirts" will be kept in-stock. "Ladies Shirts" will be printed only to cover pre-orders, but not kept in stock. This is because they just don't seem to sell over the long-haul. I get a good enough initial order, but the rest of them just sit on the shelf.

In other good news, I've decided to re-stock ZOMBIES ATE MY BRAIN!!!



Entirely too many people keep asking me when I'm going to get these back in stock, so I've decided to order them with my next print run. I guess it just goes to show... everybody loves zombies!

The problem here is that I don't have enough space to store all these shirts.

So I'm going to put some of the older inventory shirts on close-out at ridiculous prices... $5 for "Classic Shirts" and $4 for "Ladies Shirts" while supplies last. Sure I'm going to lose money, but think of all the closet space I'll free up!

New designs will be on half-price pre-order pricing of $8.50 each (regular $17.00). That's to thank everybody for voting... and also apologize for having to wait until June for shipment.

But there is one small problem.

Usually I do not charge for an order until I ship it. The problem is that Yahoo! (the company who runs my shopping cart) deletes all credit card information after two weeks. If I were to wait until I ship in June, I wouldn't be able to collect the money. So, unfortunately, I'm put in the position of having to charge immediately for all the pre-orders. Hopefully this won't upset people too badly, but I don't really have any other choice.

And there you have it.

Totally sweet, awesome quality stuff at insanely low prices. Could you ask for anything more?

I love my readers entirely too much.

    Can’t wait to shop!

  2. martin says:

    Your parcel will be the first delivered to our new house in France, that should be fun…….

  3. Brandon says:

    Woo hoo! I’m so glad the Zombies t-shirt is coming back.

    And I thought I was the only person that used “Winner, winner, chicken dinner”.

  4. Glenda says:

    You rock! I’m so excited! Thanks Dave 🙂

  5. Avitable says:

    For my next Halloween party, we should just have a Dave theme, and everybody has to wear a piece of Dave paraphernalia.

  6. Mr. Fabulous says:

    I don’t think you will have to be worried about having too many decks of cards.

  7. carlos m. hernandez says:

    “I love my readers entirely too much.”
    Right back at you Dave.

    I’m very happy that two of my favorite designs got enough votes to be printed on T-Shirts. Can’t get enough Bad Monkey, as people always comment on my other Bad Monkey shirts.

    And I’ll definitely be getting the playing cards as well. All for reduced prices, too. Wheeeee!

    Sorry, was that a bit too giddy?

  8. Nat says:

    Wow those are cheap. Monkey shirts and playing cards gifts for the financially challenged.

  9. Beth says:

    We love you, too. Keep the hapiness coming….surely you got your chocolate pudding, you are much to jovial.

  10. I can’t wait to shop either. (Do you take Paypal?)

  11. Dave2 says:

    Unfortunately, no, I can’t take PayPal. They stole my money.

    However, you are more than welcome to send in a check or money order. Just let me know what to pre-order for you and I’ll send an address where you can mail it..

    Here’s the whole PayPal drama…

    A lot of people have problems with that company. Basically, they are not a bank and not subject to banking laws. They can take your money at any time with NO explanation. And apparently do it all the time.

  12. Karl says:

    Most excellent! I love all the designs and voted for Bad Monkey Gym. But the button…totally rocks. When will there be Bad Monkey bedsheets available? I figure it’s appropriate for all those times I’m slapping my own bad monkey.

  13. Turnbaby says:

    Awesome!!! I do have a birthday coming up 😉

  14. Dave2 says:

    Hopefully it’s not until June! I won’t get any of the stuff until 5-6 weeks after I order it on May 16th! 🙂

  15. Kapgar says:

    I have no problem with it. At least I’ll actually remember why I’m giving you my money as opposed to suddenly seeing a charge to you a few months down the line and wondering what the hell is going on.

    Oh I plan to buy a couple decks, don’t worry.

    Will we have Hold ‘Em tourneys at DaveCago 3?

  16. Kevin H says:

    We love your shirts in our house! At any time you’ll see at least 2 ‘Lil Geeky’ and 1 ‘Zombie Ate My Brain’ with a ‘Bad Monkey’ sitting by. I can’t wait to get my own Dave shirts and quit mooching off of Beth’s stash. Also, love the Don’t Push the Button – it’s my iTouch desktop image. Keep the creativity flowing and thanks!

  17. Michelle says:

    I’m so glad the button one won. It’s great. I’ll definetely have to order some cards as well. You are truely awesome.

  18. Hilly Sue says:

    Dude, I trust you with my money! You can pre-gank me all you want ;).

    (and yay the Bad Monkey Gymnasium shirt is getting printed!)

  19. Winter says:

    The kid can hardly wait to buy the cards. Well, she does have to wait for payday. Heh. There is going to be a sudden influx of Dave stuff around OC between Hilly, Motley, and me!

  20. Tug says:

    YAY!! How many times can I hit ‘refresh’ before becoming a stalker?

  21. Iron Fist says:

    You should roll out a “World War Z” limited edition shirt that says “Zack Ate My Brain.”

  22. Talena says:

    I want some of those playing cards so hard! Maybe you could do some zombie Dave ones around Halloween…

  23. Poppy says:

    You had me at “zombies”.

  24. Tracy Lynn says:

    I love you too, Dave, in a strictly platonic way that raises my DaveNumber daily and may or may not involve a shrine made of candle wax in my closet.

  25. YAY! How do we pre-order? Do you have sizes for the women’s t’s?


  26. Jim Brandenburg says:

    Dave, or anybody that can help me answer the question. What is the biggest size for the shirts?. I need a 6xl!!!

    I would be interested in many of them if available.

  27. Kyra says:

    I wonder why the ladies shirts don’t sell?

  28. Dave2 says:

    Actually, the ladies shirts DO sell… at first. There’s plenty enough for me to make an initial order. But after the first rush of orders, I rarely sell any at all. I have no idea why.

  29. Tina says:

    Thanks Dave & I can’t wait to order!

  30. claire says:

    I’m feeling kinda half-sick today, but the return of the zombies totally brightened my day. Thanks, Dave!

  31. Anthony says:

    /me buys all the t-shirts

  32. Kyra says:

    Hmmm… maybe you need to get Elizabeth Hurley in one.

  33. yellojkt says:

    Those are great prices. How can you sell so low? You must be CRAAAZY!!!

  34. Yay for Bad Monkey Gym! I like the button too, but come on…Pump Up Your Monkey? Priceless!

  35. suze says:

    I love my Blogography t-shirts from last year. I get comments and questions about the “A little Geeky” t-shirt each time I wear it. And Mike got accosted by one woman one day while he was wearing his Bad Monkey T-shirt, because she wanted one for her three year old.

    I’m looking forward to the new ones (and the playing cards!)

  36. spants says:

    How do we pre-order? Can we do that when the store is back up?

  37. nicole says:

    yay shirts on sale!!!! now what are the older shirts?? i have almost all of them but i want to know if my collection will now be complete!!

  38. Mooselet says:

    I love my Zombie t-shirt. I’ll have to get an extra small one for Her Majesty, who loves Bad Monkey. Maybe I should phone my boss back and tell him I’ll work Sunday after all. I need to pay for all this.

  39. kilax says:

    I bet the cards are going to sell out fast 🙂

  40. whall says:

    So you’re saying we should buy Paypal stock.

  41. Laurence says:

    I want my Monkey Button Tee! :)))
    Can’t wait to shop!
