New Packaging

We've been plugging away on the Custom buttons from our Give Away winners and I'm excited to say we've completed at least one full one so far! Phew!

I've also been working today, on new packaging for our merchandise. The custom button winners will be the first to see them in the flesh, but I thought i'd give a bit of a preview here as well. This is a ton of buttons for Cedarseed that i've used as a guinea pig for our packaging. 

What do you think? They will also debut on November 14th at Vancouver Comicon, if you wanna pop in and buy some!

Hey don't forget to check out our page on facebook, and Like us!

So winners, what must you do now?
Well, first you need to Contact us by email: (we wont be tracking you down, everyones on different sites and we aren't going to make accounts on different sites just to contact you, you want them, come get them)
and give us your mailing address where you would like us to mail your completed buttons to.

Next you will need to download the New and improved Gk Button template and add your artwork to it.

There are instructions on the template, but if you are having troubles, just let us know and we might be able to help you out in setting up your files.

Once you've added your artwork, delete the template layer, flatten
the image and email it to the above email address in the next 2 weeks. If you don't send us your files by Nov 6th, your prize will expire and I will draw a new winner in your place! So don't delay!

We will be creating and mailing away these buttons ASAP, as we are pretty excited to get using it.

If you are in love with your free buttons, we hope you will consider using our custom button service when it becomes available on the GK shop.

And for those sceptical nellies out there, here are the screencaps of the random number generator we used to pick the winners.

Free Custom Button Giveaway

Gurukitty Studios is going to be getting a 1" pinback button maker!

Mostly, it's because we make quite a few buttons for sales at cons and to giveaway, but since we are going to get one we might as well offer a custom button service in our shop.

Before we launch this new service though, we will want to get some practice in and get some samples made for the shop, so we're going to offer a select few people the chance to win some free custom buttons.

We are going to offer 5 people, 1 page (35 buttons) of free custom 1" pinback buttons.

To qualify, simply comment on this blog (saying something other than "comment" would be nice), we will use a random number generator to select 5 people to win the custom buttons.

If you are chosen you will need to send us your files *ASAP. We've created a template for you to use, that has all the information you need.

If you had downloaded the previous template, do not use it. It had a major flaw in it. Do not use it, it will not print properly.

I've remade the template, and this one is lovely!

We will be collecting comments until we actually get our button machine home ( approx 2-3 weeks) and we will draw the 5 winners when the button machine arrives.

If you are wondering about the custom button service in the shop, details will be coming soon. Yes, as always, NO SHIPPING COST.

*If you fail to send us your files within 2 weeks of the winning announcement, you will be withdrawn and another name drawn in your place.

Something else to add, Gurukitty Studios will only use the art to print and manufacture your buttons, we do not claim ownership of your artwork and will never ever redistribute or reproduce your files or artwork.

Convention Appearance: Vancouver Comicon

We will have a small table, selling our wares, including a limited selection of Hermi, the mini comic colouring book/sketchbook at:

Vancouver Comiccon
November 14th

Heritage Hall, 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, BC

Only one of us will be at the table, who, we don't know yet, mwa hahaha.
Anyway, hope to see you there!

Hermi the Hermit Crab

We just completed one hand bound mini comic, Hermi the Hermit crab.

This book was created as a prize for a copic marker/card maker contest in a group Guruubii is part of. So, it's printed on Marker paper and includes several blank pages in the back of the book for testing colours, or just playing around.

This little comic will be available at conventions and in the shop soon (in limited quantities, hand binding is a laborious process).
Have a look =>
