Hey all!

So, I'm considering starting to do a lot more as far as promotional material.
Stickers, hats, pens, drawstring bags, and shirts are just a few of the custom "E3cubestore" merch that I can produce.

What do you all think? Is the cubing market and community ready for cube store promo items?
Is this type of promotion appropriate for the demographic?

Let me know what you think!

I think you should work on your websites user interface. It is lacking and rather difficult to navigate.

I agree. Look at other puzzles stores like HKNowStore, TheCubicle, ect. and see how their sites are laid out. I'm sure you can even find website templates online that will fit your needs if you don't wish to build up the UI from scratch. As for promotional items, I think cube bags, puzzle stands, logo stickers. Try to stick to puzzle related items for a start. If you website gains more popularity then you can possible move on to other items. Unless you are giving them away or something, I can't see that shirts, hats, and such would sell very well with the current consumer base you have. You puzzles are a good price although you seem to be out of stock of quite a few puzzles I'd like to purchase.

Yeah, I can't even see the images on your site so before you design any nifty accessories, keep in mind that they won't be purchased from a nonfunctioning website.

But the three top things for cubers would be:
cube bags - of various sizes not just for 3x3 but for all the dayan gems, tuttminx, even petaminx, and with padding not just soft cloth.

cube stands - especially those that display dodecehedrons sensibly

cubing notebooks - so we can write down stuff
