Happy New Year from Slamsister!
2014 has been a great year for Slamsister Designs. We are both very happy with our product evolution from the launch in May and we’re both excited about the ideas and designs we have in our heads for the future.
Slamsister is for lesbians.
I want to thank all of you both in the UK and in Europe who have either taken a promo card, bought a product, given us some encouraging words and or generally been kind and supportive.
I do get asked by my, a-hem, ‘straight’ friends, why is slamsister only for lesbians? My answer is because I always only wanted to draw and make original art exclusively for lesbians. That was my dream and that’s what makes me work and keep on drawing. Slamsister is a range of cards and posters and prints that are purely for us because we are frankly in need of a little spoiling in this marketplace. Why can’t we have a company just for us? It sounds pretty awesome to me and that’s why we’ve done it. I can’t wait until we have 100’s of products and so much choice so that lesbians across the world can have the option to buy something different and cool and made just for us.
So, thank you again – it’s important for me to say how much it means every time we’ve sold a product or had someone contact us saying they liked our stuff. I didn’t realise how important this would be as it continually gives us that boost and that drive to carry forward with new ideas and new plans.
Sandy and I are very excited about 2015!
We have Valentines coming up. We’ll be launching some prints and 4 greetings cards in time for February so keep a look out in January for the new products. And after that we will be adding to our greeting card catalogue, new prints and the slamsister 2016 calendar will be worked on with the hope it will be available to buy earlier in time for the pride season! The calendar has been a huge success and it’s had some amazing feedback from you all so it’s a given we will keep producing one every year.
I am also working on a special project of mine which I have wanted to do for years. I am hoping to launch this new range of ‘funny’ greeting cards in April…It’s a test of my comedic skills so, fingers crossed… And with that I will give a hint that Slamsister is for lesbians but that includes you bisexuals…;)
We want to post to the USA and worldwide! If you could see our office and the space we have, you’d understand why we’ve held off posting worldwide but there’s no time like the present to change our shipping zones.
We are also very excited about attending many great lesbian events across the UK and Europe!
Belgium Pride is in May – fingers crossed for this one and the possibility of getting a stand on women’s street…a big thanks to our friend Cynthia for even making this a possibility!
We are hoping to go to L Beach in Germany which is in April. We are extremely excited about catching up with our German friends and fans and hopefully we can announce this as a definite soon in the events calendar.
And not forgetting our home, we hope to hit as many prides as we can in the UK - Bristol, Birmingham, Oxford, London, Manchester and Liverpool – Fingers crossed.
And finally, we will be ending the #SlamSummerTour at the Ella International Lesbian Festival in Palma Majorica which runs from Sept 1st for 8 days!
Now that sounds like a plan and we hope you can all join us and share with us what we hope to be great memories in 2015.
We wish you all good health and good fun.
Happppppy New Yeeaaaar!
Love Sandy and Emma xx
