    Default 2014 OOTS Holiday Ornaments and New T-Shirts at CafePress

    As with every year, there are new holiday ornaments and associated t-shirts for sale at the CafePress store, which you can find at that link I just put into this sentence.

    Here are some close-ups of the new designs:

















    Any questions or comments, leave them here. Thanks!

    Wow. Some of these are the best I've seen since Fantasy Fantasy, which is/was my all time favorite.

    Gonna have to put some of these on the ol' Xmas list, I think.

    If only Prismatic Ray truly worked against trolls of the cybernetic variety*, my life would be a lot more satisfying.

    Wow, there are some very good ones here. Not surprised that the Julio one was made into a T-shirt. I may have to get one of these.

    That gnome one is perhaps the most hilarious thing I have ever seen, although Rich has made a lot of contenders.

    Hey, if there's anyone who's successfully made a purchase of one of the new items, can you do me a favor and just post here saying so? I just need one person to confirm that they're properly configured so that people can actually buy them; CafePress' backend system is doing some weird stuff that's making it unclear what's going on. Thanks.

    I placed an order this morning and received a confirmation e-mail of the purchase at 8:28am Eastern Time. Proof of actual delivery of goods still pending.

    OK, thanks. That proves it's something wrong with their reporting system on my end, since I don't see any new orders registering. But that's my problem, not anyone else's; I have no doubt that if you were able to place your order, you'll get your stuff.

    Um, the fact that Sabine's a demon has been established for a long time. And if Elan knows, Haley certainly does.

    It's "Double X Eyes." The original beer is "Dos Equis" or in English, "Double X" beer. I just added the "Eyes" to spoof it and tie into the way I draw dead people in the strip.

    I ran it through Bing (the former Babelfish), and it came up Two X Eyes. So yeah, I think it's a Google issue, especially given that kitten would the diminutive of gato (gatito?).

    It came out as Double X Eyes for me. I'm guessing that you and I typed something slightly different.

    I'm not sure if this is the best place to put this, since it's not directly related to the new products, but i was planning out Christmas presents and it occurred to me that there are the recurring plush dragons in the comic that could be made (and sold) in the real world. Anyway, just a possible product to explore.

    This. Why is this not yet a thing that can be bought? I'd have thought it'd be one of the best-selling items The Giant could possibly put up for sale.

    Yeah, a banjo puppet would definately sell.

    Also, how different from printing on a shirt is printing on an apron? Picture Elan "I'm participating!" or Belkar with something cooking related (and evil, cuz, y'know, Belkar), just an idea. =)

    I just saw that as well. I wanted to order right now, in fact – as close as possible to Christmas so the delivery wouldn't cross with me being unavailable for a few days. Please, Giant, tell us they'll be back in a few days!? Or at least that the design will be available for a little while longer? It says "temporarily out of stock" =( I already wrote to the CafePress customer service what that means, but I have no idea when I will get an answer =(
    An incomplete set makes me very unhappy!

    Edit: I just got off the phone with CafePress. (So what if it is about 3 in the morning where I live? This troubles me greatly!!) They simply ran out of round ornaments, which they have already received quite a few calls about today, and they're not exactly sure when the round ornaments will be back in stock, but most likely somewhat shortly after the holidays? They told me to check back in regularly. Unfortunately, there's no way to order the ornaments (and accept a longer wait for them) while they don't have the "hardware" in stock.
    Giant, I'm asking you to please leave the designs available until the round ornaments are back in stock and we have had the chance to order them again. I don't recall how long past Christmas one could order the other Holiday Ornaments, but as these are unforeseen circumstances, I appeal to your giant-sized heart to give us late-ordering folk the chance to order them as well! =/ Thank you very much in advance, and have great holidays!

    Last year, I didn't remember to take down the ornaments until October. So as long as they don't discontinue them, you'll be able to order it.

    That misprint is ridiculous, but you should be able to return it to them within 45 days (I think).
