Unicorn Empire News Roundup!

First of all, thank you to everyone who took our survey! Your feedback was incredibly valuable and it helped us make some decisions about what we’re doing next. 

New Sizes!

Thanks to all the feedback we received from everyone, we realized that we really should be offering our women’s cut t-shirt in more sizes. Over the next few months, we’ll be updating our store to include Women’s 2X and 3X t-shirts. We’re rolling out these changes one design at a time so that we don’t have to reprint all 19 of our designs all at once. (We learned our lesson about that when we expanded our sizes last year!)

To start with, our Driver Picks The Music shirts in Khaki and Green are now available in Women’s Fitted 2X and 3X. And our On Your Left Tanktops are now available in Women’s Fitted 2X, 3X, and 4X. 

New Prints!

We have tons of new poster prints, including my favorite Gravity Falls Supernatural Crossover, “Mabel and Dipper are in the Family Business”.

New items at Pepper’s Pins!

In case you didn’t know, Pepper’s Pins is Unicorn Empire’s “sister store” where I sell buttons, keychains, and other cool stuff that I’ve bribed Amber to design. I recently did a lot of baking, and in exchange Amber designed these awesome new keychains! We have keychains inspired by Teen Wolf, Supernatural, The Avengers, and I’m hoping that if I bake some chocolate chip cookies we’ll have more soon!

Future Projects

We’re constantly working on dozens of different things, but right now Amber’s two big projects are her new Orphan Black “Clone Club” t-shirt design, and a new Ghost Hunting board game called Blackwood Manner.

If you want to see Amber’s work in progress for the “Clone Club” design or Blackwood Manor you can follow her personal blog UnicornEmpire.

Another big project we’re working on is putting together a tutorial that shows what we do and how designs go from napkin sketch to finished t-shirt. 

You can also follow our official Facebook Page, follow us on Instagram @unicornempire, or sign up for our e-mail list. Thanks guys!

About six months ago I impulse bought 1000 keychain parts without an actual plan for what I was going to do with them. Then when Amber designed a pair of Captain America Winter Soldier buttons for me I realized they would be perfect on a keychain. Once Amber saw how cute the finished product was, she decided to design a whole line of them.

You can find them at PeppersPins.etsy.com and for the rest of July every keychain order comes with a free button!

No coupon code necessary, just tell me in the notes area which button you’d like. (Don’t add the button to your cart, just tell me the name of the design.)

If you don’t tell me which button you’d like I’ll include a button with the same design as your keychain. 

Free button special ends July 31st 2014.

We want to hear from you!

Unicorn Empire relies on customer feedback to grow, and we would love to hear your thoughts on what we’ve done so far and where we’re heading!

Last year customers told us that they really wanted a bigger range of sizes, so we added four new sizes to our listings. When we heard from a lot of people that Khaki really wasn’t their color, we decided to offer our “Driver Picks the Music” in military green for everyone who feels washed out in Khaki. 

We realize that some people are shy about sending asks, so we put together a little survey to give everyone the chance to tell us what they think. 

The survey is totally anonymous and should only take a few minutes. You can skip any questions that you don’t want to answer. The survey is for everyone, whether you’ve purchased from us or not!

You can fill out the survey here

You’re also welcome to send us an ask, an etsy convo, or an e-mail with any ideas or feedback you have. 

We can’t wait to hear from you!

So far we’ve received about 72 responses and we’re really enjoying hearing from all of you. Our SurveyMonkey account lets us collect 100 responses per survey, so when we get all 100 responses we’ll post some of the results and answer some of the questions we’ve received. (Don’t worry, no private answers will be shared. We’re just going to share general trends, like the percentage of people who prefer neon t-shirts). 

Edit: Thank you all for taking the survey. We’ve reached 104 responses now and can only view the first 100 due to SurveyMonkey’s account limits. So if you take the survey now we won’t be able to see your answers! Of course you’re always welcome to send an ask!

Happy 4th everyone! We’ve got a sale running right now for free domestic shipping (Anywhere in the US!) and some free patriotic pins.

We’re also doing a presale of this Teen Wolf design for 1 week in the store, so if you’d like to grab a fun summer tanktop or a t-shirt of this design now’s your chance- They are available right here from 6/30-7/7

I can’t explain how much I love their typography. Not being american, the sale doesn’t help me, but signal boost for those who are!

We forgot to mention that international buyers can send us a message on Etsy to get a coupon code of their own. We can’t offer free international shipping, but we can discount your shipping. 

Also, if you’re an international customer you can put the code “CAPSICLE” in the notes to us when you checkout and we’ll make sure you get those free buttons.
