Much Ado...

Much ado about nothing as Shakespeare put it so eloquently.  Really - so much fuss over a cup.  Franky I think it's one of the best designs they've had in years.  Primarily because of it's simplicity!  Really - who looks at that cup and Doesn't think Christmas??  Their other designs look to me like a bad collection at a really sad garage sale or corner thrift store- just way too complicated.  Painful to look at all together really.

Marketing Link...

I'd like to direct your attention to a really interesting guy, Sean McCabe.  He was homeschooled and has always had his own businesses - before he even graduated high school.  He has a Lot of information on marketing and ideas surrounding the life of creatives and offers classes on making a living doing hand lettering.

He also has a wonderful "Community" chat room that he runs with his wife, brother and a handful of other top professionals.  I've been a member for a couple of months and have met some terrifically interesting and professional people from all over the world.

His website is here at Seanwes

He also hosts Seanwes Podcast and Seanwes TV - both through iTunes.

If you're interested in a Lot of marketing information and a fresh approach I encourage you to have a look.  One of his motto's is "Full price or free" - so he does sell classes in lettering and marketing, but he also has a Ton of very useful information for free as well.
