Feck The Recession (NSFW) Feck The Recession, Inspiration, Stuff, design

I got fed up and designed a protest poster against all the doom & gloom in the media. I have had it hanging on my wall for two months now and I still love coming in to the office and seeing it each morning. It is full of advice, quotes and facts showing the recession is not the end of the world, it is one great big opportunity for you to shine!
The poster is now available on Zazzle.co.uk so you can order your own gorgeous print. Any money made on the posters will go to the Samaritans who have been busier then they should be lately.

The prints are on a very-heavy weight paper with a really lovely matte finish.
Details: A substantial, very white print medium with a matte finish, imprinted with UV-resistant archival inks (100+ years of fade resistance when displayed indoors and protected from direct sunlight).
You can adjust price, sizes and paper weight on Zazzle and even add a frame if you are feeling flush. The one i have linked is €27.50 and is the one i have in the office here.

Same price, new US Dollar currency. Email Marketing, Email Newsletter Templates, Pricing, Stuff, Toddle

We are announcing a small change to our pricing today. It now costs $9 to send your email newsletter instead of €6. The end cost to you is roughly the same.
To date we have been charging just €6 in the EURO € currency. That was great when we began building Toddle.com as most users were relatively local. However over the last 6 months our user base has grown wonderfully (Thanks to you guys) to where most of our users are based in the US.
Unfortunately for those US users when it came to converting from Euro into Dollar they were never sure exactly what conversation rate was and what the final charge would be.
Now the cost in US$ is set at exactly $9. This is roughly equal to the previous price of €6.

So in summary:

  • What is happening?: New currency, same price.
  • Does it effect me?: If you are based in the US your payment is now a few Cents cheaper. If you are based in Europe your payment is now a few Cents more.
  • When is it happening? Early this week.

If you have any questions just leave a comment below.
Thanks, and here is to more low cost, stress free email marketing.
