Library Comic Store

Created by Gene Ambaum

SHIPPING: - Currently shipping 1-2 times per week. -- Library Tarot cards should be back in stock in August. QUESTIONS? [email protected] FAQ: -- Orders over $30 (not including shipping) get a free READ TO LIVE patch while supplies last. Free patch will not appear in your shopping cart, it will be added manually later. - All items shown are in-stock. - Bumper Stickers ship in a photo mailer either with the other items you order or alone, in a separate envelope, if we deem that less likely to result in damage. - Patches: pictures of sets attempt to show the relative sizes of these. (The store banner is less accurate.) See individual patches for a more complete description. Email me if you have any questions. - All patches have iron-on backing. Read individual patch listings for details about each. ORDER CONFIRMATION and other emails from this system will thank you for supporting Read Something -- Readers' Advisory Card Deck no matter what you ordered. Just ignore this. Sorry for the confusion, I can't change it. PLEASE ORDER IMMEDIATELY: Do not leave items in your shopping card and order later -- they may be out of stock if you do. For best results order right after adding items to your cart. SHIPPING: - Cost is based on the weight of your items + where you live. - If shipping shows as $150, that's because I've never shipped to your country or because you've placed an order for a huge amount of stuff. Email me and I'll figure out what actual shipping will cost, and I'll charge you that. I can either give you a credit after you've placed your order (just email me), or you can wait and place your order after I add the weight/destination to the store. - If you're interested in an epic amount of stuff for your staff or store, please email me. RETURNED PACKAGES: If your package is returned to use because you provided an undeliverable address, we will either 1) refund your purchase less the shipping charges or 2) reship the package at your expense (you'll need to pay the shipping again). Sales tax is included in the price for Washington State sales.

Happy Sunday!

In case you haven't seen it, I wanted to let you know about Library Comic's  Kickstarter for our first book, Shelf Check.

Chris Hallbeck, Willow Payne, and I are going to choose a few of our  favorite comics, and then the rest will be voted on by backers.

Please have a look! As I write this, there are still rewards available at all pledge levels, including the Limited Artist Editions  and the Kickstater Completist level.


PS: Apologies if you're seeing this message a few times this morning.

Your stuff is in the mail!

Update on Enamel Pins
over 3 years ago – Mon, Nov 02, 2020 at 08:24:44 AM

Hey there,

You're getting this update if your pledge includes enamel pins.

Everything is still running ahead of schedule, but a few of the enamel pins (At Dawn We Read and the card catalog design) have yet to arrive. 

I've been told to expect these from the manufacturer in mid-November, and I'll ship your orders out as soon as these pins arrive. (If they are delayed beyond about Nov. 21  I'll send you another update.) 

Just wanted you to know what's happening and why.

Happy voting!


THE CARDS ARE HERE?! + Updated timeline.
over 3 years ago – Fri, Oct 16, 2020 at 05:23:08 PM

Hey again,

Got an incredibly pleasant surprise earlier this week when the cards suddenly arrived more than a month ahead of the earliest date expected them. Did they stow away on a plane? Hop a fast boat? Or somehow impersonate important documents? I'm not asking! The cards look great, as does the box!  

This moves up the timeline a bit. See details below:

- If you've filled out your survey, you should have just received a notification from Backerkit that your order will lock in 48 hours. This is a chance for you to change what add-ons you want (or don't) on your own. If you need to change things after this, you'll need to email me. (And if you make significant changes, please let me know anyway.)

- If you haven't answered your Backerkit survey yet, please do that ASAP. (If you're not sure, check your inbox or spam folder for reminders from Backerkit (just sent one), or email me.) Some options for add-ons will disappear in the next few days. Some have already vanished.

- I will charge your credit card for add-ons on Sunday, November 1st.  (Email me if that presents a problem for you.)

Orders will ship in early or mid November. (We're still well ahead of schedule!) I'm waiting for some supplies from the USPS and elsewhere, as well as some merchandise that is still being manufactured. I will start shipping as soon as I have everything in-hand.
