Greetings!

Welcome to our July 2018 update!

First off, we want to appologize for our downtime last month. We had some server issues that managed to take our website down for a couple of days. We’ve taken steps to make sure that any possible downtimes will be minimized in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience our downtime may have caused!

Other than server woes, administratively we don’t have anything to announce this month. Instead, let’s get right into the fun stuff! This month, we will be adding the following 13 designs to the store, along with one new tapestry.

The premium P80 2-Way Silkette versions of most covers will be available on Sakura-Palace.

As usual, we also have a lot of projects in the pipeline. Right now, we can announce the following work is currently in progress:

As always, thank you for your continued support of Cuddly Octopus!

There isn’t much to go over administratively this month. We will be switching back to UPS for shipping covers to the US. JCEX hands the delivery over to another courier, which means that the tracking numbers were frequently not being updated after the transition. As such, shipping costs have increased slightly to $22 for 1 cover and $29 for 2 or 3 covers. Additionally, due to their incredibly long width, we will need to begin shipping our tapestries separately from cover orders.

As for the fun stuff, this month we will add the following 9 designs to the store.

There’s not too terribly much to announce administratively this month. Unfortunately, the prices for us to ship our covers is increasing very marginally over what we currently offer. For one cover, we will be switching to JCEX. The shipping time will take slightly longer, but our price will only increase from $17 to $18. Shipping for two or three covers will remain with UPS, but the price will increase from $25 to $27. Prices for four or more covers should remain the same.

Beyond that, we have a total of 9 new covers for you to drool over this month!

Wow, can you believe Cuddly Octopus is two years old as of today!? As with each of our anniversary updates, we’re kind of amazed and humbled to see what you guys have helped our tiny little circle to become. So first things first, we want to truly thank each and every single one of you for your support of Cuddly Octopus over these past two years! We hope to continue forward for many anniversaries to come!

Onto our administrative announcements… as we mentioned in our February update, due to the rising cost of manufacturing our covers, our base price will be rising from $55 to $60 beginning this order period. This price increase only impacts payments in USD and not EUR, due to the way exchange rates have fluctuated since we set the pricing. We’re sorry we had to raise prices, but it’s what allows us to keep paying our artists to draw more designs!

With the bad news out of the way, we also wanted to announce that Cuddly Octopus is now expending into the wonderful world of tapestries! If you’ve been paying attention to our home page over the past year, you may have noticed that we’ve been changing the home page image to represent each season. Our initial offering of tapestries will be these four illustrations drawn by our very own KyuriTizu! Each of them is a Japanese-styled, B2-sized beautifully printed tapestry starting at $25/unit. For now, you won’t be able to find them publicly listed on the store, so look below for links to the item pages directly. We hope to expand our tapestry selection in the coming months and years, as well as adding a dedicated section for tapestry designs.

And for a limited time, we’ll also be offering a promotion where if you buy five or more covers (custom-prints not included), you’ll get your choice of tapestry added to your order for free! Just specify which design you’d like in the order notes field at checkout.

So with our April 2018 update, we are adding the following 8 dakimakura designs and 4 tapestry designs:

Before we get into the fun stuff, we’ll start off with a bit of bad news for you all. After the Chinese New Year, our manufacturing costs for a number of items will be increasing marginally. Therefore, starting on April 1st, we will be increasing the price of our covers from $55 to $60 USD per cover. Our Euro pricing will remain unaffected. We’re greatly sorry that we need to increase the prices on you, but we felt it a necessary step to maintain our current trajectory. We hope this 2-month lead time allows you to buy all those covers you’re still interested in before our price rises up!

With the administrative stuff out of the way, let’s get to the fun stuff! This month, we’re updating our site with the following 11 designs:

Disclaimer: The lines and octopodes on the sample images are a watermark and won’t be on the printed cover.

Starting this month, we will move our order period from 21st -> 20th to the 1st -> last day of the month. This change will hopefully cut down on the confusion regarding when each order period runs and ends. All orders made from the 21st to the 30th of November will be added to the previous (November) order period.

Onto the normal part of our monthly update! This month, we’re updating our store with the following nine designs:
