As it's been lovely and sunny we've made ourselves a camp outside and are using it as an office. We've been pretty productive today as well and there's been a few more colourful additions and adjustments to the Pick N Mix custom plugs section.

We've got rid of the similarities between the Koi and the Mermaid Tail plugs and made the Koi scale pattern more ornate and scalloped. The old-style ones might be back with a new name, depending on demand and all that.

Earthquake and Tiger Stripe custom plugs are now listed and ready to rock and roll.

Tomorrow looks like another nice day out in the office, so we've just got a few more patterns to sort out then we can start on something else :)

We wanted to expand the Glitter Pick N Mix a bit, but found it a bit overwhelming to go through, plus it's a bit hard to envisage what each type would look like when they're done. And we didn't want to go through the palaver of learning Flash for what would have been a nifty interactive interface, because we'd much rather make plugs.

What we'll be doing, slowly but surely, is making a seperate listing for each pattern type that'll be accompanied by nice previews of what the finished result would look like. Tis a bit of a process, but we have already have new, expanded listings for

We'll be bringing out some new textures/glitters/shiny things once we've done all the patterns, and there'll be a couple of new patterns as well, maybe even some different colour patterns -- who knows?

We've been sorting out our server with the assistance of our lovely hosts and have a much nippier site :) We've also made a few adjustments -- some of them are nice. Some of them aren't.

We'll do the not-so-nice one today.

We've had to readjust the price tiers as, due to the sheer amount of sizes and options we offer, they were taking hours to administer and it all turned into a bit of an admin nightmare. Our Etsy shop was also growing out of control and something needed to be done, as the whole operation was turning into something resembling a government IT project (inefficient, doesn't quite work as it should, chaos all round).

Anyway, most prices are now rounded up to the nearest £1, which won't make a difference to most of you, but some people may find that their preferred size has gone up in price a bit. Conversely, some other people will find that their preferred size has actually gone down in price.

Many apologies if this causes confusion and sadface, especially as there was an all-round price rise only in April, but unfortunately it was absolutely, positively, definitely neccessary.

On  the good side of things, we've also made a pretty hack stock level check thing that works quietly in the background, and indicates whether your preferred size is in stock when you order your plugs -- if it's not in stock it won't be displayed. No more having to check a stock level page, it's all done automatically now. Well, it should be, but if you experience any problems or the site starts acting in a bizarre manner, then please let us know.

Here is a quick, at-a-glance price list that I must print out and put in my organiser because people ask me how much things cost and I can never remember.

Not had any new products for a while, so we'll start off with these bad boys - Moon Custom Plugs.

You have a wide choice of colours available to choose from, all of which combine uniquely together in a cool chemistry thing and make these cratered, colourful beauties. Each one is very individual, but we do try and match pairs up as best as we can.

Not only is there a wide variety with the colours, but you also have a choice of the usual front and flare types for the surgical steel plugs. Fronts are finished off with a smooth glass-like resin -- for best results get these with domed fronts.

We're also offering these as skinfills for silicone tunnels -- the front of these cover the entire front surface of the tunnel.

Sizes for both skinfills and surgical steel plugs start from 8mm (0g) and go up to 30mm (1-3/16"). The surgical steel variety can be purchased here, and you can get the skinfills here.
