September Subscriptions!

September was an exciting month for us! Not only because of the subscriptions that you’ll see below, but because our exhibition at DCAC, THIS END UP, opened on the 16th – featuring work by 20 Project Dispatch Artists! You have until mid-December to check it out, so stop by DCAC next time you are in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC. And stay tuned for info on our 2016 book release! We will be selling it at the DC Art Book Fair on November 12, and we will have a book release happy hour at DCAC on November 18th. We’ll have special subscription deals at both events…and we don’t have to tell you what a great gift an art subscription makes (but we will anyway….get a subscription for your favorite person this holiday season!)

In the meantime…we present work by Becca Kallem, Chandi Kelley, and Rachel England

Summer News and Subscriptions!

We have been hard at work the last few months, processing donations from our incredible supporters…THANK YOU! Our campaign raised over $5,000, giving us the opportunity to advertise with several art and design websites and podcasts. An example of one of our ads is below (thanks to our very favorite graphic designer, Bryan Ewsichek), which can be seen in various forms on Colossal, 99% Invisible, Web Urbanist, Vandalog, and Spoon and Tamago for 2 weeks!

Our final spot will air on August 3, so stay tuned!

November Subscriptions!

We love sharing the work that goes out each month to our subscribers, not only because it’s always pretty awesome, but also because we want to inspire YOU to subscribe. It’s not easy to keep the subscriptions rolling in, so we rely on people who like what we do to show their support. The price point couldn’t be more accessible (really!) and the holidays are the BEST time to order. We are offering a HUGE SALE through the end of December…20% OFF EVERYTHING including subscriptions, choose your own adventure books, trading card packs (think stocking stuffers), and single serving mystery works! Just enter coupon code HOLIDAZE at checkout. This discount also applies to our already incredible offer for a FREE LIMITED EDITION PRINT with a sampler subscription! This way, you can order a gift and still keep a little something for yourself….(we won’t tell).

Long story short….WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! And the holidays are the best time to show it. Mostly because we are making it really easy on you, but also because we know that the recipient of a gift subscription to Project Dispatch will love you forever. Think about it…SUBSCRIBE!
