That time when you are hoping some poor soul didn't pay their invoice so you can hopefully scoop them caps up ;) It's a wonderful time of the year... Merry Christmas Sneaky and Sneaky fans! (No for real tho I'm hoping somebody played themselves on the invoicing... no mercy out here in the cap game... lmao)  :thumb:

Nice, Zodiac Mulder going my way... the colorway is sick, but I have a feeling that I'll be swapping it for a Mulder v3 in the future, so I can enjoy that La Muerte feeling :P

There were SO many great caps!  I bet even someone that won four caps would wish they could have gotten more.

Hey everyone!

First, I wanted to give a few updates and give people a peek at whatís under the hood for the coming few months.
For those that didn't see, I posted an update on the Forgemas page a while back (www.keyforge.com/forgemas) letting you know that packages from the second week of Forgemas will be shipped on January 25th. The reason for the delay is that there are more caps than the first week had, and I needed some time to recover from the holidays.

Speaking of that, many of you have probably noticed that I havenít been as active lately as usual. After the holidays I needed to take a bit of a step back, both mentally and physically, and spend some time with my family. Being an artisan is extremely rewarding, but itís also very time-consuming. People see the caps and the sales, but they often donít see all the work behind the scenes that keeps the business afloat and running. Iím constantly working on future projects, paperwork, inventory, taxes, and reordering stuff in order to keep everything running smoothly. I spend days trying to coordinate colors before mixing, researching keysets, and finally mixing resin in preparation for sales. Etc, etc, etc. There's a lot that goes on, and it can be challenging to do them all by yourself. However, I think that great strides have been made in the quality of my keys over the past year. I'm really proud of the way keys are coming out, and I've tried my best to make them as consistently as possible. Running a small art studio/business by yourself sure is challenging, but it's rewarding to build something completely by yourself and see it actually work.

A few of you know that Iíve been dealing with an on/off again sickness over the past 3-4 months that has really put me down. I try not to talk about it much because it sounds like an excuse when things arenít moving as quickly as expected, but basically I had a never-ending cold and fever for weeks on end. They finally figured out that my immune system was getting trashed due to my "work all night so I can spend some time with the family during the day" plan. Apparently my body doesnít like staying up all night, so with the new year Iíve adjusted back to a normal day schedule (which I hate because Iím more productive at night). As soon as I adjusted back to a day schedule, my symptoms cleared up quickly and I feel much, much better. Know that Iím letting you guys know these things not for pity, but so you have an idea whatís going on in my world and how it effects keys and sales. I think itís important to keep you guys in the loop with that stuff. Know that keeping you guys happy with quick shipping and quick communication are important to me. While I'm not Amazon, I'm going to continue to try to improve both of those areas the best that I can in the coming weeks and months.

Second, Iím going to be doing some work ASAP on a few areas in the coming weeks. These changes include:

- Updated Sale Notification Email entry form (current one is broken)

- Updates to photos and language on the site

- Creating storefront to sell t-shirts, stickers, etc.

- Monthly Sale Notification Emails (to keep you in the loop)

- New, insanely thick and protective bubble mailers for International Packages to prevent key damage in transit

- Separate branded shipping boxes for Commissions, better suited for the boxes in transit


- Option to purchase "Blind Bag" on storefront which will contain a cap from a pool of leftover keys from previous sales

These changes will take place over the next few weeks. I have also FINALLY fixed the issue of international tracking emails not always including a tracking number.

Finally, I will be adjusting the way I do sales in 2019. Starting in February, I will be retiring FSF and moving to one single sale per month with 3-4 colorways to choose from. This will make shipping easier on me, as well as give you guys a few options rather than just a single key every sale. I'll provide more details about this once Forgemas finishes shipping, but for now just stay tuned. I am also working on a few new sculpts that will be debuting soon :)

I want to thank every one of you for your support in 2018. It means the world to me, my wife, and my daughter. Also Oatmeal and Noodles send boops.

Wew this is a detailed update, thanks so much for the transparency! All of these make sense and I'm honestly quite excited for just a single sale per month (24 hours window please!)

Looking forward to your blind bag sales notifications and swag!

Monthly sales will have a larger window for entry, at least a few hours to enter. There will still be occasional flash sale and secret sales that are more difficult to get into :)

You are a beast my dude! Donít sweat it. You take your time fam. This community doesnít deserve your kindness! Hope you fully recover. Sometimes the sickness just drags along for months. It sucks. I respect the artisan process. It requires skill, dedication and a lot of patience. But most of all, you are out here sacrificing time with your loved ones to make people happy. You are building a community and reaching people on a personal note. Respect the process yíall! Always best of luck fam!
