Caption Winner

Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 10:57 PM

Congrats to "Empty_W" (his/her forum name) for their winning caption!

Reading through the 1,000+ entries was incredibly fun -- but was filled with enough great ones that it made it very difficult to pick just one overall.

I hope everyone enjoyed reading the captions as much as I did. Based on the huge number of entries and votes cast, I think it's something we'll try again someday.

A huge thank you to everyone who submitted -- you all deserve the official "Sheldon High-Five For Extraordinary Valor Among Exceptional Awesomeness".

Posters! Posters in the Store!

Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 07:56 AM

Good news! It took hundreds of folks asking for it, but we finally did it: Posters are now in the Sheldon Store! Yep, two high-quality posters printed on matte photo paper (they're essentially big, gorgeous photographs) are now in the Sheldon Store!

The first is a full-color reproduction of the "Krazy Kat"-homage strip: "Dilly Duck". The Original Art for this one was snapped up within 10 minutes of it going up on the site...and hundreds of Sheldonistas subsequently have e-mailed asking for a print. So here it is!

The other poster is a long-time classic 'round these parts: The Artist's Decision tree. Previously, it was sold exclusively at conventions -- you couldn't get it online. But blam! Online it is!

Both posters are 12" x 18" and crisply printed on matte photo paper. They'll both be available through Christmas in the store -- and after that, we'll see. I genuinely don't know if we'll keep 'em in stock on not: It largely depends on how tricky they are to ship out in bulk. (The mailing tubes take up a *lot* of space when you have a few hundred laying around.) But between now and Christmas, we'll definitely keep them in stock.

Also! For folks that love both posters, there's a cheaper two-pack that'll save you $5 on shipping and price. So check out the gettin's over at the gettin' store!
