Makers Gotta Make: Switching to Fulfillment Shipping

You've probably gotten dozens of updates from businesses on how they're making changes to navigate the new challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. It's vitally important that we do our best to avoid getting sick, especially as a small team of seven people. To reduce potential exposure, we've brainstormed solutions to keep things running smoothly and have as few people working in the studio as possible.

Books to Educate Yourself on Systemic Racism (And Then Do Something About It)

The last couple weeks have been pretty surreal. In the wake of George Floyd’s murder just down the street from our studio, we’ve seen a global shift towards better understanding systemic racism in our society. Many white people are finally asking, “How can I help?” For those who are confronting this issue for the first time, we want to share some resources.

A New “Normal"

With all this COVID-19 craziness, we’re relieved to say that, overall, we’re doing alright. Right now we’re a little overworked and under-staffed, but things could be a lot worse. Life is starting to settle into a new routine and we thought it would be good to post an update — to let you know where we’re at and what to expect through the next few months.

Shipping Updates Coming Soon to Help Us Reopen Our Shop

Our original plan was to reopen our online shop today. Due to the extended Stay-at-Home order in Minnesota, we're making some changes to our business and pushing that back a few days to Sunday April 12th with limited inventory.

Two Week Temporary Closure

Our home state of Minnesota has issued a Stay-at-Home order for two weeks, so we are temporarily closing our shop through April 9, 2020. Digital gift cards are still available for purchase, as well as our print-to-order bookish merch (as long as those manufacturers can continue to operate).

Stay Home and Read

Bookish introverts worldwide are wondering what's so different about social distancing and their normal routine. Turns out, staying home and reading is a highly effective way to flatten the curve and avoid spreading illness. It's also good for your mental and emotional health during this time of high anxiety.
