Movember Wrap Up - Week One(ish)

Posted on November 10, 2011 | 0 comments

The first week or so of Movember has been nothing short of spectacular. Not only have our expectations been stream-rolled, but they've also been torched, harpooned, rubberband-gunned and literally blown out of the water by deep sea torpedoes. Business has been good - nay great - and because of that charitable donations are equally through the roof.

As fairly intelligent business owners (hold off on the jabs for later =), we do what we can to have contingency plans in place in case situations get sticky and taffy-like. With this being said, there's no way we (or more specifically our site) could have fully prepared for what was to come our way. Needless to say, on roughly day 4 our site got overwhelmed and perhaps a little overheated and decided to take a short breather. After making a few short phone calls and some upgrades we were back in the game.

It's apparent that the great United States embraces the mustache during the month of November, but (no offense) it's a candle to the sun when compared to the founding juggernaut that is Australia. These buggers eat and sleep mustache - literally by the bowlful sans utensils. Add to this the other great land masses that participate in this joyous movement and you have one heck of a populous. One would never guess this, but a commonality among each is that they love making and baking cookies - and then devouring them. We assumed having hundreds of cookie cutters on hand would suffice for the consumer base and campaign in general, but we were wrong - dead wrong! Having to put this classy item on back order wasn't in the cards, but again sometimes you have to roll with the punches.

In summation, the first small chunk of this delightful month has been eye-opening and we're doing our mustachioed-best to fulfill all orders and answer any customer queries. Shirts are being restocked on a daily basis, a new load of cookie cutters are moving ever closer to our warehouse and new items are being secretly constructed for the December craft fair extravaganza. The fuzzy wheels are in motion and we can't thank everyone enough for supporting such a monumental cause. Arm your battle staches and let's continue firing away at week two!

Wait, What?!

Perusing the twitter feed while crunching on a bowl of cereal this morning, I came across a friend's link that seemed somewhat relevant to the times. I'm still trying to decide if it's shockingly amazing or amazingly shocking, but either way it'll certainly make you adjust your expression =). Enjoy you mustached maniacs moustair.tumblr.com

Having a Moustache...

One of our delightful friends informed us of this delectable video and it was only fair we share it with the rest of the world. Let it be known though, that here at the Fuzzy Ink HQ's we respect and embrace all mustaches...rigid and real or fraudulent and fake ;). Grab a handful of junior mints and enjoy!

With Movember right around the corner, we figured it made sense to showcase some of the terrific and delicious photos we've received leading up to the festivities. Utilizing our very own cookie cutters, in flawless fashion I might add, these guys are nothing short of classy-tastic. Start spreading the stache and more importantly global awareness for men's health issues!

We're Still Here!

After a very long absence from our blog, I think it's time for us to get back into the swing of things. I can't believe that it's already been a year since our last post, but boy have things changed since then. From here on out we'll be doing our very best to keep everyone up to date on all of our happenings as well as what the future of mustaches will be for us.


We'll be back soon, but for now we'll leave you with our arsenal of mustaches, mmmm.

Posted on October 30, 2010 | 0 comments

This weekend (10/30 and 10/31) we'll be constructing leaf forts in two familiar and prime locations. The first is the delectable Eastern Market in Washington, DC; taking place Saturday and Sunday between 9am and 5pm, you'll be hard fought to find a better plethora of interesting and obscure objects.

We'll also be launching soft clothing bombs at the Sowa Open Market in Boston, MA. Running Sunday from 10am to 4pm, this is the ABSOLUTE LAST show of the season (until next May) and thus being Halloween will be set up as the Market of the Living Dead. Grab your spooky costumes (for cash-money prizes), dancing shoes and carving knives and zombie-walk on over to one of the most eventful markets of the year!

'Show' Me The Fuzzy (10/16 & 10/17)

Posted on October 15, 2010 | 0 comments

This weekend (10/16 and 10/17) we'll be scooting our behinds to three stellar places in the east. To start things off, we'll be canoodling with folks of all kinds during the season-ending Providence Open Market on Saturday from 10am to 4pm in (you guessed it) Providence, RI. Do yourself (and us) a favor and mosey on over to Lippitt Park to support the handmade generation!

Additionally, we'll be chucking shirts at people at the Sowa Open Market in Boston, MA. Running Sunday from 10am to 4pm, this event is also getting close to the wire so come peruse solo (or grab a friend / stranger / strange friend) and support the artsy peeps.

Finally, we'll be setting up our mustache hideout at the always great Eastern Market in Washington, DC; taking place Saturday and Sunday between 9am and 5pm, you're sure to get a jump-start on the holiday season inching closer and closer.
