Website notes
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 12 Jan 2010 4:13 PM

Missed it: yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of the relaunch of our website in its current form. Whoopee! Thanks to everybody who has visited, shopped, and offered feedback during this time.

One modification we've recently made to the site is that now we can list items in our web shop without offering them for sale (in other words, without the "add to cart" button). We did this for a couple of reasons: one, so we can continue to have info about certain of our books available online even if they go out of stock (and other sites can continue to link to them); and two, so that we can bring you information about upcoming books sooner, since we are often not able to start the pre-sale on books until just a few weeks before they're released. You should be able to start enjoying the fruits of this in the near future.

Email is back... with a vengeance
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 17 Dec 2009 11:38 AM
The technical difficulties we reported yesterday have been cleared up and we are now receiving email again — and as a bonus, if you placed an order with us any time this year, your order confirmation email was re-sent to you.  If you receive one, just ignore it and do not panic, we have not processed your order twice — it was just an email glitch! Fun times!
Please hold your e-mails

We're currently experiencing some technical difficulties with e-mail here in the Fantagraphics office, so if you are trying to reach us today, your best bet is to pick up the phone and call us (1-800-657-1100 or 206-524-1967). We apologize for the inconvenience and we'll update when things are back to normal. Thanks.
