When I set January’s Aprons Rewards goal, I hoped that we would get close this month. I thought that I would have to work like crazy near the end of the month to reach the goal, and even then it was no sure thing.
Shows how much I know. We just surpassed the goal, and it’s not even halfway through the month.
So, I want to thank you so much for sharing Aprons with the people you know will love it.
Very soon I’ll be publishing a lovely color Sunday comic as an additional thank you – you’ve earned it.
But why stop there? We could cool our heels for the rest of the month, but we work in the foodservice – we’re not used to cooling our heels. The second half of the month would only need to see 450 people for us to reach the first level of Aprons Rewards.
Let’s do it. We’re gonna break the internet, remember?
As another “thank you” for sharing Aprons, I’m letting you buy (awesome, high-quality, limited edition) APRONS PRINTS for just $16 until the end of the month. The $16 price is because my Birthday is on the 16th, and you made my day be reaching our goal by my birthday. Don’t send me a present though, get both of us a present by buying a classy print of your favorite Aprons comic! They’re pretty.
Yet again, I can’t thank you enough for sharing. You’re part of a small-but-passionate group of Aprons readers, and you are chock-full of awesomeness.
Let’s remember to smack the Orange Apron level in the face! Once you’re done reading, use the fancy new sharing sidebar to share one of your new favorite comics with people who would love Aprons. Even a simple e-mail would be awesome – who haven’t you told about Aprons who would love it?
Hey, I’ve just launched a Tumblr blog to collect Waitstaff stories! This is seperate from my dedicated Aprons Tumblr (which you can follow here).
I’ve long been a fan of Good Morning: Barista Problems, a wonderful Tumblr that publishes my comics from time to time. I contacted the creator of that blog suggesting a sister blog for waiters, and Bish-Bash-Bosh! Here we are. This is very much in BETA, but go have a look, and submit your Waitstaff problems (or your Barista Problems here).
I’m sure you can think of all sorts of ideas, and we need to fill up the problematic coffers!
One or two of the ideas submitted might even make it into an Aprons strip, who knows…
Hey, all of the Aprons prints and the original art are on sale right now until the 20th for Christmas!
Prints: $20 (Originally $25)
Originals: $99 (Originally $125)
Just thought I’d let you know – click the prints/original button on whatever comic really belongs on your friend’s wall.
Merry Christmas! I hope you have a splendid one.
