A few readers have asked me about Crazy Sunshine merchandising in the form of prints, postcards, keyrings and T-shirts. While I already have a ton of ideas on what I would like to sell, there’s one thing I’m missing: Funding!
Crazy Sunshine is my little hobby and will always be 100% free to read. I pay for all the hosting, advertising, program subscriptions and more with my own pocket and that’s how it’s going to stay.
However, I were to gamble a lot of money into merchandising with the possibility that none of it sells, it could cause some financial problems down the line. So, I’ve added a Donate button to the right sidebar in order to summon the help of the fans! If you enjoy reading Crazy Sunshine and want the potential to have something physical to hold onto in the future, you can donate as much as you like and help out! As I said, Crazy Sunshine will remain self-sufficient, so all proceeds received through donations will go towards funding merchandise and not doughnuts and coffee (I swear!)
Remember, you don’t need to spend a single cent if you don’t want to! After all, everyone is going to be buying stuff when it comes out, right? R-right…?
Once and if the money starts flowing in, I’ll look into cheap options on how to sell and post stuff from Japan. I’ll also explain how each step of the process is coming along through regular blog updates, so people who have donated are never left in the dark.
Lastly, do you own a shop or sell webcomic merchandise? If so I would love to hear your opinions and recommendations on how to do so and which manufacturers to team up with!
Thanks for reading!
