It's getting close to that time of year again with less than a week to go until the double whammy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday hit but don't you Fret about that as we at Fretshirt HQ are once more fully prepared for the onslaught.
After all this isn't our first Christmas so we know what is coming, and the the BF/CM - as apparently we are meant to call it now - is only the beginning. It is the two weekends that follow when most people actually do their on line shopping.
So, we have new machines installed, tested and running, just waiting for you realise Christmas is less than a month away, and you've yet to buy anything from your favourite t-shirt shop (that is fretshirt.com isn't it?)
Rest ashured, yet again, we won't be turning anyone into a Grumpy Santa Cat, during the rush, just as we won't at any other time of the year.
And, yes, I did just type all that just so I could shoehorn in a reference to one of our top selling Christmas designs but that doesn't mean it isn't true.
Of course, preparing to be run ragged isn't all we have been doing, for along with all the brand new Christmas designs we are adding, over in the merchandise section, Jan Zeleny's Mashinky page has started to fill up.
First up is a shirt inspired by the naturally the game's first era of Steam.
Then, just like in the game itself, will come designs for diesel and electric - a preview of one of those is at the head of this blog post (take that social media team - I got to do it first for once!) - to create a complete matching set.
There are also pencil cases for the little train lovers amongst you, with full all over printed shirts to follow and some very effective mix image shirts, that will make you want to just dive into the lush greenery of the industrial might, of the full on tycoon came that Mashinky is set to become.
Of course if you don't like to wear lavishly printed hi-resolution shirts then we have a rather subtle embroidered polo shirt that is much beloved by none other than Jan himself, and we're going to be adding an embroidered cap to that, once we've done some tests to see which style works best.
Until we fret again.
