What a busy few months May and June have proven to be for us…not that we’re complaining! We’ve had shows in Newcastle, London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Belfast and are off to Dublin this weekend to finish June off. The logistics of organising ourselves to have a stand at an event sometimes feels like one of those puzzles where you move squares around a bigger square to make a complete picture! Running between printers, suppliers of t-shirts, storage units and then up and down the country can sometimes be stressful but it’s all worth it when we set up at a show and sell products which we truly believe in and we know people genuinely love!
Those people that have seen us at a comic con or have ordered a t-shirt online, will most probably have received one of our new re-vamped leaflets. And I’ve got to say, we’re really pleased with them! We wanted to design something which really showcases our products in an easy to read format and encourages people to have a good look around our website. So far, so good! The traffic for our website has increased considerably and orders are really picking up which is great. We also feel that the leaflet appeals to the novice film fan…those people who want to buy a t-shirt for someone but aren’t always sure which film the shirt relates to. By putting the film name with the t-shirt, the leaflet has universal appeal. Winner!
The London Excel show that we have recently been at was where we launched our latest two designs. Our Arkham Asylum and Wayne Enterprises are super popular and so we wanted to give Batman fans another t-shirt to add to their collections! Our brand new Gotham City Police Department was a huge hit this month and sold out in its first weekend of being launched. Don't worry though; more have been printed and will be available at Dublin this weekend. Our other design is Jaws 19 (anyone guess the film?!) This too has proved to be popular and will also be in Ireland with us on Saturday. Both should be available to buy through our website before mid-July so keep visiting to keep updated on their progress.
What’s next for Unit 13 Originals then? We’re in the process of drawing up further new designs and are extending our range of ladies fit t-shirts. We’re also keeping incredibly busy just with the printing needed to fulfil the shows that we’ve already booked. It truly is a balancing act! July continues to be an action-packed month with us having stands at Blackpool Play Expo, London Film and Comic Con and MCM Manchester. Keep an eye out for our stand if you are visiting and be sure to come over and see us and to check out what’s new. Remember that you can subscribe to our newsletter so that you don't miss out on the latest designs and news.
