I'm now selling signed copies of my bookPosted May 18th 2011, 14:11
Starting today I'm selling copies of my book, 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth directly out of The Oatmeal Shop. I'm selling it for $14.99, which is the same price you'd pay if you bought it in a physical bookstore (although that doesn't include shipping).
In exchange for buying directly, I'm signing every copy.
As always, each copy also includes this pull-out poster.
Is it cheaper to buy from Amazon or Barnes and Noble?
Yes, but I can't afford to compete with those businesses on price, so in exchange for paying full retail for the book I'm signing all the copies that are sold directly. I'm selling it at the suggested retail price ($14.99) plus shipping.
Is it faster to order from you that other online retailers?
Probably not. Amazon and B&N have armies of employees who ship merchandise quicker than Santa's elves on crystal meth, and my shop is run entirely by a couple of my family members. (my mom and sister ship everything and do customer service, so please be nice to them if you have an issue with your order)
Are you shipping internationally?
Yes, although shipping can be a bit expensive depending on which country it goes to. Again because it's a signed copy hopefully you'll think of it as a big greasy hug from The Oatmeal and forgive the shipping costs.
The Bobcats greeting cards
I also started selling Bobcats greeting cards.
They're sold as a pack of seven, envelopes are included and shipping is free.
Buttloads of cat stickers!
I added a sticker pack that includes 14 various cat stickers, including stuff from The Bobcats, Cat Vs. Internet, and How to Pet a Kitty.
The pack costs $6.00 and shipping is free.

Less complaining, more sexy rumpus
Lastly, I added a few more stickers to the Oatmeal sticker pack, including Less Complaining, More Sexy Rumpus, Sriracha, and a Gayroller 2000. The new pack contains 22 Oatmeal stickers for $7.00 and shipping is free.
