Shirts! Shirts Everywhere!

We’ve got some big news about the BMEShop today!  The t-shirt printer is working again, which means that the BMEShop is now back in stock with over 75 designs.  On top of that, expect to see over 100 more added in the coming weeks!

Here’s some of the ones that are now back in stock:

The list goes on and on, so head on over to the apparel gallery to see them all!

Because there have been so many designs in the past, getting them all ready to be printed is going to take some time.  So if you don’t see your favorite shirt listed, send the shop and e-mail with your requests so we can get that one back in stock right away!  Can’t remember the older designs?  Check out the BME Wiki page!

In more shop news, we’ve had some requests for cheaper international shipping.  So we’re going to be running a trial on “International First Class Mail”.  Keep in mind that this cheaper option will not come with a tracking number, and may take up to 4-6 weeks to arrive.  Due to the nature of this shipment, missing packages will not be the responsibility of the BMEShop.  So keep this in mind if you wish to try out the cheaper shipping options.

Wrapping it up for the year

It’s been a while since we’ve done them, but the BME Year-End Awards are coming up!  Now, because we didn’t do them last year, we’ll be doing the 2010** awards this month as well.  Now if you don’t know what the awards are, they’re how we recognize the top contributors to BME.  We look at 3 categories, photos, videos, and experiences*.  The top 10 in each category win fabulous prizes!

Now in the past, with the way the system worked is that we’d cut off submissions for the year end awards some time in December.  This year, with all the changes to the site, we can now take submissions up until midnight on December 31st.  So that means if you’re one of the top contributors come New Year’s Day, you’ll be getting a gift certificate to the BMEShop.  In past years we’ve given away t-shirts, but this time we thought it would be nice if the winners got to choose what they received.  Here’s how the prizes break down.  The top 10 contributors in each category will each win the following:

  • 1st place: $1000
  • 2nd place: $500
  • 3rd place: $250
  • 4th place: $100
  • 5th place: $50
  • 6th place: $40
  • 7th place: $30
  • 8th place: $30
  • 9th place: $30
  • 10th place: $20

If you do the math we’re giving away over six thousand dollars in prizes this year!

So what does this mean to you?  Well you’ve still got a few weeks to send in your submissions, so before the end of December upload your photos, videos and experiences* to BME.  Who knows, if you’ve submitted enough to be in the top ten, you’ll be getting a prize!  If you’ve been sitting on a bunch of photos that you haven’t uploaded yet, now is the time!

Now, all that said, we know there were some problems with the t-shirts in 2009 (I’m looking at you Angela).  If you were a winner of a 2009 year end award, and did not receive your shirt, send an e-mail to [email protected] with your shipping address, phone number, and shirt size (mens sm-2xl or womens s-xl), and we’ll send them out.

On top of all of this, the BME New Year’s Eve party is coming up!  We’re only a few days away from bonfires, suspensions, and all kinds of shenanigans!  Check the event listing for all the details!  BMEHQ is located right near King’s Dominion in Virginia, just outside of Richmond.

*Top 10 consists of the top 10 BME members who have submitted more than 1 experience.
**2010 prizes will be announced at a later date.

BMEShop Contest! BMEShop Discount Code! BME New Year’s Eve Party!

The year is almost over and the BMEshop is going to have its final sale of the year.  So from now until midnight on New Year’s Eve the code holiday20off will get you 20% off your entire purchase.  But that’s not all!

Rachel was sending out some orders yesterday and discovered that the BMEShop is close to sending out its 5000th shipment.   So here’s the contest:  If your order shipping number is #5000, then you’ll win a $100 gift certificate for the shop.  Keep in mind that this only applies to orders being shipped out.  The system tracks individual orders coming in, as well as going out, and we’re only looking at the shipping number.  This means you can’t just make order after order to bump up your order number before actually making a purchase, we’re only counting completed orders.

So with the 20% off discount, and the chance to win $100 gift certificate, now is the perfect time to do some shopping for yourself.

The Master Returns

It’s been a while since we’ve seen something by Ron Garza on ModBlog, which is a shame, because he truly is one of the masters of body modification.  Ron spends a lot of time on the road, and this scar was done while he was on one of his many trips.  Hopefully we’ll get to see a healed version of this, as I would love to see how the negative space holds up against the scar tissue.

Ron has also created a dvd entitled Professional Piercing Basics.  Sean reviewed it a few months back, and said that “(he) would even go as far as to say this is the best piercing video since  the Pierce With a Pro videos by Jim Ward.  There are a few copies left in stock at the BME shop, so make sure to pick one up today.

Three years in the works

By the time you’re reading this, IAM will have probably been taken down for the upgrade.  As many of you know, this upgrade has been a long time coming, three years in fact.  So to celebrate, the BME Shop is having a SALE! We’re giving you 10% off for every year the new IAM has been in development, that means you’re going to get 30% OFF EVERYTHING (except DVDs).  To get the discount, all you have to do is put in the code: 3years when you check out.  The discount will be automatically applied.  The sale is going to last until Friday the 19th.

We’ve also had some requests, so first class shipping has been added to the US shipping options.  However, priority shipping is only 5-15 dollars and it gets there in 3 days or less and it can be tracked.  First class shipping can’t be tracked, nor can any insurance be placed on it, so if you need something quick, priority is probably your best bet, but first class is available.  Express mail is also now available to US customers.  Here’s the current rundown of shipping options:

Domestic (USA):

First Class, Priority Mail, and Express Mail.


Priority Mail and Express Mail.

I’ve also been testing out the new IAM, so over the week I’ll be updating you with what you can expect when IAM comes back online.

So remember, this week only you get 30% off at the BMEshop by using the code: 3years

Sale ends Friday August 19th, 2011.  Sale applies to all items except DVDs.
