Last Call!

Hello Everyone,
I've decided to close the Guy Hat commission list at the end of April, but I will continue to accept requests until then.  It's been an amazing ride and we've had a lot of fun making Guy Hats!  Guy is quite the senior at 16 years old, needless to say I wouldn't make Guy hats if Guy wasn't around.  I'd like to end this project on a high note :)

Guy passed away on October 7th, around 3pm.  He was able to do so at home with us by his side.  His spirit will remain with us for as long as we live.  I did a blog post about Guy's passing here:
"Good Bye Old Friend"

Class #4 and Postal Rates Increase

171/365 Once again: Class of 2013
Class of 2013 has another batch of graduates! They all got shipped to their prospectus homes today.  I hope they get there safe and sound.  It's been so much fun seeing little "Guys" pop up on Flickr.  Thank you everyone for all of your enthusiasm on this silly project!

Today was also the first day of a HUGE increase in postage rates here.  I'm so sad to say that postage rates went up today.  The hardest hit is on international shipping, International First Class rates will go up as much as 60%!  They're really making it difficult for us to do business with other countries.  Boooo! I wish there was a cheaper method to ship, but there isn't.

So new rates are:
US Shipping: $3.50
Canada Shipping: $9.00 (raise from $5.00)
Worldwide Shipping $ 13.00 (raise from $8.50)

This will definitely hit online sellers, especially us dolly folks with less expensive items.  In some cases you'd be spending as much on the shipping as the item itself!

The Packaging

Packaging for Guy Hat
I thought I would do a post on how Guy hats are packaged and shipped.  Every hat comes with a polaroid picture of Guy, an "I heart Guy" pin and is shipped in a cardboard shipper. 

 I Heart Guy Stamps
I made rubber stamps for the pin. ^_^

 Workin' Away
Each package comes with an original polaroid photo of Guy!  I wanted to give each hat a personal touch.  If you like nostalgia or shooting with film I highly recommend getting a Fujifilm Instax camera.  It's really fun and great for parties, you can have instant memories to share with your friends.  I think having a physical momento is wonderful in the digital age.
I debated between getting the Instax 210 or the Instax Mini 25.  I went with the Mini for size sake.  I don't think I would ever tote around a HUGE camera other than my Canon 7D.
