Multiplex Workplace Poster series

In honor of Labor Day here in the US of A, I wanted to share with you guys something I’ve been working on. Multiplex Book Two backers and those of you who follow me on Twitter or the Multiplex Facebook page will have seen earlier versions of a few of these, but they’re Multiplex-themed movie theater/workplace posters featuring the main Multiplex cast. I came up with Jason’s poster for one of the Book 2 Kickstarter rewards and liked the idea enough to keep making more.

An 18″x24″ version of Jason’s poster will be available in the coming weeks from the Multiplex Store; they’re being printed this week, so if you want one, stay tuned for that! I’m also planning to make the full set of five posters available as 11″x17″ mini-posters (most likely for $20 for the set). I will need to do a pre-order in order to finance the printing for the set, though, since, y’know, I’m a grad student. We’ll see.

If these sell well, I’ll make more! Feel free to suggest themes for what they could touch on in the comments — though keep in mind, they’re meant to double as half-serious PSA’s, not just be snarky posters.

I’ve got a (late) comic to finish, so without further ado, here are the posters!

I hired a bunch of crappy T-shirt models. (Also, I need more.)

rosebud-ladies_tI decided to get all Busted Tees up in the Multiplex Store’s newly re-opened T-shirt section, so if you’re feeling a little bit bored and want to see some catalog-style drawings of the Multiplex gang (not just the girls), go window shop for shirts.

I tried my best to make the shirts actually look like the real shirts (color-wise, length of sleeves, size of the imprint, etc.), but obviously they’re not going to be spot-on.

In light of that, I would like to get some real product photos of the shirts, so if you order a shirt and e-mail me a photo of yourself wearing it, I’ll give you a $2 coupon code for the Multiplex Store* — whether I can use it or not! (It should be as large as possible, so I can crop it down to an image about 600 pixels square. Half-way decent lighting is kinda important.)

If you already have a Multiplex shirt, yes, it does need to be a NEW order (this week), because I need them to be from the current printer.

This offer stands at least September 13th or I have enough photos, whichever comes later. Limit one coupon per customer.

* With Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two) coming out in a few short months, I’m sure you can think of something to use that coupon code on.

T-shirts are back in the Multiplex Store!

Those of you who have visted the Multiplex Store recently may have noticed a distinct lack of T-shirts in them. Mostly, this was because my old DTG shirt printer went out of business. Partly, this was because I’m lazy swamped with work this summer. But now that I’ve signed up with a new printer and have the new (responsive!) store design, they are back.

There are currently five classic/old designs — the ever-popular Michael Bay is the Devil shirts (Transformers G1 and TMNT flavors), Rosebud Was My Dick, I Believe in George Romero and the Sarcastic T-shirt shirt that Jason has worn a few times.

But wait! There’s more! There’s also one new design, featuring actual characters from the comic! I call it the Clerks shirt:

MX-CLERKS

All of the shirt shirts are priced from $17.99 — for now. 2XL and larger sizes are a little higher. Men’s shirts are available from XS/Youth Large up to 5XL; ladies shirts come in XS and go up to 2XL. (I’m just passing the additional wholesale costs of the shirts on for those, sorry. I’m offering every size my printer keeps in stock, as well, so I’m sorry if you want a larger size than that.)

Shipping is $5$4 per shirt (in the US) until I can afford a better shipping estimator plug-in for the shop.

ALSO, you can now register or log into the Multiplex Store using your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts. For you people (like me) who are too lazy to fill out forms and/or too dumb to remember yet another password.

Once again, the Store has been completely rebuilt recently, so please let me know if you spot any bugs!

Updated Multiplex Store

I’m in the process of rebuilding the Multiplex Store. It’s still a little plain, but that will be an ongoing process. Anyway, I think everything works correctly.

There are a few nice things about the new design: a more streamlined checkout page, a responsive design, so that if you’re on a phone, it should fit your screen. (My developer Jelly and I are working on a responsive redesign for the regular Multiplex website, too, but that’s a few months off. Mostly him, at this point.)

In the interest of testing things out, I need some customers!

Here is a coupon for $1.99 off any eBook with any purchase. So you can buy a book and get a free eBook, or buy one eBook and get a second one for free, or just get $1.99 off one of the eBook sets, whatever.

Because an account is required for eBook purchases, you will need to be logged in, so if you don’t already have an account, you’ll need to create one. At checkout, enter the code newstore and it’ll take $1.99 off your total.

If you run into any issues, please leave a comment here or shoot me an e-mail!
