Just curious to know if Crooked Dice is offering any deals for Black Friday, or the holidays?

Please share if you are aware of any.

I see a notice from Shapeways that you can get 15% off your own model uploads to them for Black Friday.

Nice, if you are a 3-D modeler, but useless to me, so a bit underwhelming. A pity.

Today is a discount on your own models, but I believe Monday is a discount on all models. Same 15%, just open to everyone.

Why don't you just check their web site?

I did.

I would have thought that Crooked Dice with a kickstarter just finished don't need a black friday sale.

Or, like sensible small British companies they are just ignoring the nonsense of an American tradition…

Snobbery and snark doesn't attract many new customers.

Sorry, feeling cynical after being bombarded all day by Black Friday emails…

But Black Friday does make little sense for smaller companies in the UK where we don't have a post thanksgiving sales slump and we are about to enter the busiest sales period of the year…

A number of bigger companies in the UK have stopped running Black Fridya sales this year as they realised they were simply losing Xmas sales and making much lower profits at a time when high street sales are decreasing…

I feel your pain.
Here in the Beautiful Czech Republic, the biggest online retailer has, at the very least, twenty Black Fridays a year, and the other onliners have followed suit. It truly is absurd.
Oh, and they all call it Black Friday in English, not Czech, which apparently makes it more authentic.

"Snobbery and snark doesn't attract many new customers".

Very true.

I completely understand that this ritual makes no sense to the rest of the world, but we Americans need bargains fast!… before midnight tonight!! lol
