We have just added a new ‘Pets’ category to the Online Shop. For every sale from this category Island Design will be donating 10% to RUBS Puppy Love, ID tag campaign, Gozo SPCA. Over the next week you will see more and more designs appearing, including customisable products that you can add your pet’s name to. I will also be working on customisable ‘In Memoriam’ engraved wall plaques.
About the ID Tag Campaign
An ID tag is a legal requirement for every dog whenever in a public place – this is in addition to being chipped. For every tag ordered, Gozo SPCAdonates €1 to another local sanctuary – over €10,000 has been distributed by Gozo SPCA via this scheme, which they run in conjunction with RUBS Puppy Love facebook group.
You may or may not know that I had an accident in early December, which somewhat scuppered my plans for Christmas and the New Year! However, I’m back working now and am working on new designs, which will appear in the online store very shortly. Oh, and I’m revamping the website a bit too as the last design was a bit murky to say the least!
Two new Nativity plaques have just arrived in the store. The first is a standard wall plaque with gold lettering, the second, a customisable variation of the same design. You can add and greeting or phrase up to 30 words.
This weekend (3rd/4th November), after a couple of months of hard work creating my laser-cut stock I attended the Malta Comic-Con with my first ever stall selling my designs. Because of the nature of the event they were mainly super hero and sci-fi based. I was really blown away by the response, and I sold a huge amount of stock. The response from the public was amazing and I had many requests for commissions. If you attended and were one of those people, thank you. You can contact me by clicking the link at the bottom.
I’d like to take a moment here to thank my friend Anwen who helped me out on both days, and Dave for helping me set up on the Friday.
After a well deserved couple of days off I will be straight onto designs for Christmas and the Christmas Craft fairs here in Malta. I will post more info on these in the next couple of days.
