Hello all! Many of you may already be familiar with the USPS' Media Mail. In case you're not, we thought we'd offer up a little primer here along with some reasons why - after due investigation - we unfortunately can't see Media Mail working for us as a shipping option at the moment. THE GOOD Media Mail can be a substantially less expensive shipping choice for heavier items like books when compared with Priority Mail. Media Mail rates start at only $2.66, whereas Priority can start at $6.70 (as of the time of this writing) depending on the distance to one's destination (Zone-based). Media ..
If you've stopped by our booth at one of the many anime conventions that we vend at throughout the year, you've probably seen a number of products that seem to be missing from our website. While some of these items might be very new arrivals that haven't been uploaded yet (we routinely get shipments a day or two before leaving for a convention), others (e.g. trading goods) may fall into product categories that we don't tend to post here because of limited supply, discontinuation, or other factors. There is a third reason for products not appearing here, however, and this is one which we are th..
In addition to our memo pads, flat magnet sheets are now back in stock as well. Add a little anime cheer to your refrigerator or freezer doors this holiday season - they make great stocking stuffers!..

The USPS raised rates on Priority Mail services on January 17th, including both domestic and international services.

We're currently looking at a few options to bring some of these costs down, including possibly offering UPS shipping for heavier packages (the USPS is less expensive up to a certain point, but after that point, UPS rates seem to be favorable). As always, we'll keep you posted..
As some of you may (or may not) be aware, we have been serving as an independent record label for two musical projects (Parlormuse and Subtle Inversion) for quite some time now. Although that might seem a bit strange at first glance and outside of our normal sphere of product offerings, our company actually began as a music production and duplication facility back in 2004.
