Gen Con Reward Level on Kickstarter!

We love Gen Con and had the most awesome show last year as first time exhibitors! This year we are excited to bring our Con*Quest Adventure Journals to the show for the very first time. So we created a Gen Con reward level on our Kickstarter! Pledge $30 (that's $10 less than our normal retail!) or more and you get a journal and bag, for easy pick up at the show in our One Less Nemesis booth 1954! Due to popular demand, we added 100 more journals to this reward! Check it out and pledge if you can, we’d love for you to have a journal to capture every single moment of Gen Con, August 14-17 at the Indiana Convention Center!

Our Con*Quest Adventure Journal Kickstarter!


Ted and I have been in business together for five years, building the One Less™ Nemesis t-shirt brand and going to lots and lots of conventions. We’ve been to industry trade shows, Star Trek conventions and comic cons both large and small. I left each show with bags and envelopes and folders of my autographs, photo-ops and signed comics and put them in a closet. Those funny cosplay pictures stayed on our phones, never being laughed at again.

Then in January of 2014, while at a comic con, we walked past a journal booth and a photo sleeve booth and said to each other: why hasn’t anyone every made a journal especially designed for comic cons? Big enough for the photo-ops, with enough room to stick pictures all over the pages? And then when fans are standing in line or at a panel, they can take notes and write funny stuff down? We should do this! So we  did. The Con*Quest Adventure Journal™ debuted in March of 2014. Handcrafted in the US with completely original artwork designed especially for comic con fans, it’s the place to stick, stuff and journal your con adventure.

We want to take this business to the next level and we need your help. Please check out our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, support us if you can and tell everyone you know about it. We know this is the next big thing. And we'd love for you to be there with us, every step of the way.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TT!

So the story goes that one day, Ted was on the slopes of Steven's Pass with his son, snowboarding. There were a bunch of skiers doing what skiers do...getting in the way. Ted mumbled to himself "If there was just ONE LESS SKIER on the slopes today..." and thus our brand was born! Since then, we evolved from a board sports brand to a pop culture brand and I've been dragging this guy to every con and event you can think of. Today I want to say thank you for being annoyed at those skiers and starting this brand. It's been an amazing, fun ride the whole time! Happy Birthday, TT!

Emerald City Comicon Recap!

No matter how long we've been doing cons and events, each one is its own individual experience with its own individual challenges. Emerald City Comicon made sure we knew that! Our setup was one of the longest setups we've had. We decided that when shows are local to one of us, it's almost more work because we can keep tweaking and changing things up to the last minute. But we were so happy with how the booth turned out and we had a great show!

We also brought our new Con*Quest Adventure Journals™ to the con, as well as our full line-up of tees and merchandise. Friday was definitely our strongest day at the show. Some of the most fun things that happen now that we are repeating events are the return of customers from last year, seeing attendees wearing our shirts and meeting online friends and fans in person!

Here is our Emerald City Comicon experience in pictures:
