Just wanted to start a discussion on how fellow Anons have been prepping their cards or gifts.

>How do I sign up?
Its closed, better luck next year.
Someone will be doing late cards/gifts possibly, and if they show up here you can join that!

Jebus of /a/ is open for Christm/a/s cds. More information in the archives.

Personally, I'm having a hard time finding the right material to make cards. Its always too flimsy. I'll have to head down to a different bookstore this evening to check things out.
>>
>>133110310
Card stock. Or just buy blank cards.
>>
>>133110427
Yes, the store I dropped by yesterday didn't have any of them. They have pretty good envelopes though.
>>
>>133110310
At least post something Christmas as well.

Is sign ups for card still open?
>>
>>133112572
Officially, its all closed. With the exception of another organizer who does late cards/gifts. You will have to wait for them to show up.
>>
>>133112572
The late exchange will start taking them sometime soon. I think Sunday or Monday, you can check archive for SpoonSanta I think for his email.
>>
>>133110525
It's mindboggling how rare completely blank cards are.
I could only find them at Michaels, not even the fucking Hallmark store sold them.

Man, I have been late for the /ss/ events for two years in a row!

Do I have bad luck or something?
>>
>>133112988
You just aren't dedicated enough, anon.
>>
>>133112924
Its reasonable though. Assuming I'm a store owner, I'd think a decorated card would sell better, as compared to a blank card.
Not a harm to stock blank cards, but I could use the space to sell more decorated cards.

>>133112988
Instead of paying attention to the catalog, it might be better to check the archives closely next year.
>>
>>133112988
>signups started in August
>literally all you had to search was "Santa" in the archives

Granted, the archives were on the fritz but desustorage came up immediately after and recovered the original sign-up threads anyways.

>Granted, the archives were on the fritz but desustorage came up immediately after and recovered the original sign-up threads anyways.

Not the guy that missed it, but they didn't and search has been on and off for desustorage. I don;t know how he missed it last year though because there were threads every other day, but this year to keep on track of things, I needed to keep a crawler up that plays a loud as fuck alarm to wake me up in my sleep when these threads come up.

For anons that are sending out baked goods, when is the best time to send them out? I don't want mine to go rotten if my anon chooses to not open his gift until christmas.
>>
>>133113691
It was intentionally lower key this year because they didn't want as many cross boarders.
>>
>>133113761
Maybe write on the box that there's cookies inside? I was thinking of sending out baked goods too, but I worry my anon has allergies

I might be confusing it, actually. There were multiple sign-up threads I remember finding from the desustorage archive and linking to others, which means it had to have been available over the course of October (albeit, only when search worked). Which means they were being archived currently rather than restored.

Ah, well. There's always late cards and next year.
>>
Dear JT from Ont, just to tell you I'm starting your gift this week.
>>
>>133113761
Send a card ahead of time letting him know.

Make sure the actual gifts are wrapped up in the box, and just leave the food in some clear wrap on top
>>
>>133113972
By the least, I think a simple site needs to be created to centralize certain information (FAQ, when it starts, etc),
but I'm afraid it will blow out of proportions and start doing things out of 4chan.
>>
>>133114403
That's part of the issue. The objective was to reduce visibility so only regular /a/ users would be able to find it after considering the participants from previous years. Once you have all that information collected in one place and in a neat, organized presentation, it's much more visible to anyone and everyone. The archive itself limits that to a degree, though the moe archive dying wasn't part of that intention.
>>
TI of WA, I'll be beginning work on your gift as soon as I get the chance to pick up materials (probably Friday.)
>>
>>133114562
maybe we can organize the /ss/ sign up information into a google website like what the buyfags threads do.

Any tips for a kirie/paper-cutted art beginner? Found a good way of making 2 toned stencils using Adobe Illustrator but cutting the finer details like the line art with an Xacto has proven to be extremely hard. Maybe I just need to start with much simpler images.
>>
>>133114562
Hmm, so the constant copy-pasting of the FAQ content was intentional?
It would be more neat if its in a pastebin by the least, but yeah I see why certain things were done like they are.

>>133114776
Wouldn't that expose some Anons information to the public? Like email, etc?

>>133114403

If you dont browse /a/ enough to find an /ss/ thread, you shouldnt participate. Fuck off
>>
>>133114776
Potentially, yeah. I personally believe the current method is alright, if not for the disruption on the archive. It makes it so people that are aware of the event already know where to look, anyone that missed it the previous year as well, and for anyone that is still somehow unaware, the threads each week will be sufficient. I agree that it's good to reduce the overall number of entries since there was grinching/crossboarders previously and this seems to be the most effective way without having a centralized /ss/ page.

>>133115041
Finding an /ss/ thread is one issue. Knowing how it works is another. As mentioend in >>133114922 my concern was largely on the FAQ.
The FAQ does not cover everything, and I had to dig through the archives to know how certain things work.

Outsiders are more likely to grinch or to give shitty/off-topic gifts.

>>
>>133118806
It's not a secret club, it's just that we want to form a community with our fellow anons. That's like being upset that an office party doesn't invite people from another business over.

If you just want a giant internet secret santa for anyone at all, there's stuff like reddit or imgur. This is /a/ themed for /a/nons.
>>
>>133118666
The latter half of the sentence is important.

Are you seriously asking that? More anons from /a/ isn't a problem. More people from other parts of 4chan or the internet trying to get in on this for free loot is.

How do others feel about getting matched with people having similar tastes?
I know the Santas said they tried to match people up but I don't think that's necessarily better, buying gifts for my assignment feels like I'm just buying stuff for myself (very similar wishlist). Last year I got given some fujo with terrible taste but I felt it was more fun trying to find something because her taste was so different compared to mine.
Not that it really matters either way, just a thought.
>>
>>133125247
My anon's taste is a bit different to mine, but looking back on mine I didn't give anything away. I apologize sincerely to my anon.
>>
>>133125247
>the Santas said they tried to match people up
Did they?
My matches only had maybe one or two aspects in common, the rest I have to look up and research. I kind of wish their lists were more similar. It's easier to find quality merchandise when you know a bit more about the series and characters you're buying.
>>
>>133125247
afaik they try to make requests for matching up like same province same country, but I don't know anything about them trying to wedge peoples tastes together, would be pretty insane to do that for so many people.

especially with how vague the categories would have to be to do so
>>
>>133125414
Maybe I misunderstood.
Either way I probably just got unlucky that I got matched with what could very well be my separated at birth twin.

Depends on what the sentence is. If you're really specific and only really want stuff from the monogatari series and eva then that isn't really an issue because there's a lot of merch available for them.
However if you say your favourite shows are: Kill me baby, Serial Experiments lain and FLCL then it's significantly harder.
>>
>>133126806
Fair enough, I think what I put should be fine since it just for a card then.
>>
>>133126715
the amount of information you put into the words is what matters more.
it is always important to be concise, but paraphrasing things in such a way that it seems like a grocery list is a bit impersonal I think.

there is really no right or wrong way to do it, but you can't go wrong with more as long as you're providing new information as you talk instead of reiterating the same thing several times.

Some clothing and local goods. I did mention it to Santaloli and I posted in the previous /ss/ thread to ask my /ss/ about his wishlist and thankfully he did post and gave three titles, although he was still undecided on what he really wanted to receive.

Don't worry TY from SG I'm not giving you anything bad.

Already bought my anon's gifts, waiting for them to arrive from Japan. Anon just listed shows and said "I already have most of the merch of my waifu" so I just bought several small items.

I've been grinched once and someone once openly complained that he hated my gifts (and my cookies were "decent"), then immediately resold them, so that made me sad. Hopefully this year will be better.

It's my first year doing this, so I just went for cards, but the /a/non gave me quite the list of his favorites.

I'm scared to reply and not meet his expectations since I don't draw well and have to look up 99% of his list.

Anybody have tips for newfags?
>>
>>133128939
Just put some effort in and you'll be fine. I suck at drawing so I trace and fill in colors with watercolor/color pencil/fine liners. Make sure it doesn't look like you hastily threw it together and you'll be fine.

You can also try crafting your card using cutouts for example.
>>
>>133128939
Examples?
You could pick a 12-episode one and watch it.
>>
>>133127406
I thought it was a shot in the dark. I currently have a couple items stored at FJ, so if I happened to find anything else my gift recipient might be interested in I could buy it and add it to my order before it gets shipped out.

What I do is use a blank card, put my laptop in a way that the screen is like a table and just trace that way, it works even with the thick paper of the card.

By cutouts I meant cutting out different coloured paper and sticking it onto the card.

PS from Luxemburg, just wanted to let you know not to worry if you don't see your name mentioned here, as I'll 100% guarantee you'll get a gift.
Just so you know, though, I have no idea how much time it will take to arrive. Two years ago it took like a month from where I live (Romania) to get to France.
Last year, on the other hand, in two weeks I got a notification of the gift getting to Belgium.
So even if it's a bit late, don't worry, chances are it's getting there.

It makes people feel better, I saw my initials and it made me feel That it's kinda unreliable because I was too afraid to sign up, so I never did.
>>
>>133138246
>tfw your initials are part of a tripfag's trip so you get a ton of false hope from that.

Well shit. MM of IN and ZP of CO, expect your goodie boxes to come in sometime this month. I rushed and didn't think things through.

>>133136481
Nice, I'm looking forward to it.

Thank you Jebus for giving me something at all.

>>133139719
Signups had a very long time they were open, anon.
They closed early because shipping from Japan can take time, even with expensive shipping, mail delivery time increases exponentially as Christmas nears, and people need time to find/make stuff.
>>
>>133139719
It's so the threads would have more time to be noticed by people actually paying attention. It closed in October so the people running it had more time to organize and give out the assignments so people could start working on their gifts. It's your own fault that you missed it.
>>
I've overspent by a bit, only because R from London has good taste. It was a lot of fun choosing things.

I've also overspent but it's fun picking gifts for all those people with an actual taste. Next year i'm going even higher (it's my first time).

hopefully >>133130427 will be content with their gifts

Is sending unassembled garage kits a bad tone?
>>
>>133140377
is that crab?
>>
>>133140433
If your anon isn't experienced with GKs or didn't ask for them then yeah probably.
>>
>>133139503
>>133139585
Including shipping is shit tier.
should have gone to a lower tier if you are strapped for cash
>>
>>133140433

It depends on their wishlist. I'm into kits and I wouldn't buy one unless they said they liked them too.

I got lucky and mine said they were into plamo, so I went almost all out with kits.
>>
I just hope my Anon like child drawing since it won't be better.

at least it'll arrive early

>>133140474
Judging by his MAL he's really new so yeah, I guess that isn't an option. Poor guy wouldn't get his waifu, then, there's no prepainted figures of her.

I realized only now that I needed to reply to the /ss/ email.
Fuck, hopefully I didn't fuck this up.

>>133140959
What /ss/ e-mail? I never got one, but I did get assignments.

Does that mean I'm on a whitelist of some sort?
