That's it. The Black Friday is gone.
Lots of orders, nice messages and a full day preparing the parcels. Thanks to the ones that have participated to this day, and I think I will reorganize it next year.
Many of you have ordered the Panoplie, even several Panoplies. Therefore I'm starting to think that I may have to modify this to add a new product for it. Still keeping the same materials and producing localy. The launch, the stock and the website have took a lot of the ressources. So I'll go step by step, and will try to create this new Calepino product for the beginning of 2012, concentrating on the quality and affordable price. To be continued.
Until this, and because many of you sent comments regarding the quality of the drawing that was used for the BlackFriday, on a Calepino N°2, on the homepage. MOON, the graphic designer who did this illustration, made me a nice surprise by taking some pictures of each steps of this creation. So, to end November with a nice touch, here is his beautiful gift in 12 pictures. Enjoy !

This Friday, 25th of November, we'll be exactly one month before Christmas
As you may have seen on the page "Points de vente", you may now find Calepino in two new shops in Paris.
These are the two concept-stores FRENCHTROTTERS created by Carole and Clarent, two fashion addits always looking for the last art and fashion trends :

The main job for Calepino is mainly the printing and the forwarding. Since the end of October the website is receiving thousands of visitors and a lot questions about the 100% local manufacturing process. So, to show you how it works from behing the scene, here are some pictures from the printing factory in the suburb of Nantes (France). A huge thanks to Souenellen and Moon for this pictures that I will publish in three parts during three days.
First part : Environment and machines
If you don't speak french, here is the english version of the Calepino website.
I took the same picture as the first post in french version, just to start the same way. You can now order your first CALEPINO from the webshop in english. We ship worldwide, but if your country is not listed during the checkout process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
And to celebrate the launch, there is a 10% discount if you subscribe to the newsletter.
And also some surprises in each parcel shipped in the next days... don't wait too long, there won't be enough for everyone.
I will try to do my best to write in a good english.. but as you may know french people are not the best for languages :-)... so if ever you see some mistakes do not hesitate to tell me. I will aslo try to improve the whole english translation of the website in the coming days.. I just wanted to open it ASAP, as 70% of the visitors were coming from ouside of France so far...
