We are kicking off our 2015 convention season in Portland in less than two weeks and we are PSYCHED! For the first time since launching our journals, we have created a very limited edition Show Exclusive version of our Con*Quest Adventure Journal. Our Wizard World Portland Comic Con Show Exclusive Journal. The WW Portland CC journal has all of the same inside journal pages as our existing book including Autograph Quest, Artist Quest, Cosplay Quest and Panel Quest, 4 plastic sleeves, a business card holder, zipper pouch and Sharpie™. We have used green canvas to cover this special edition, added the Portland Comic Con logo and dated it. We are only producing 50 total for the show! We have made pre-orders available for pick up in our booth, #339 at the show. And when you pre-order the Journal and Tote bag, you save $5 off the at show price! Order Here and have the best place to capture all of the autographs, sketches, cards and mementos from the show!

We love Moleskine™ journals and used them every day for our To Do lists and conference call notes. But we really wanted our own version with our Con*Quest Adventure Journal™ stamp on them and when we love something, we make it happen. We had a small quantity of Neoskin red journals made with our logo embossed on the cover and want to share them with you! For a limited time (and while this small quantity lasts) we are giving away a lined, red embossed Neoskin journal with every order of a Con*Quest Adventure Journal™ and custom tote bag. Just order the bag and journal here and a Nesokin journal will be included with your order!
So order a journal for a con-going friend, get a personal journal for you and be set for the holidays AND con season!
Contest time! When we came up with the idea for the Con*Quest Adventure Journal, we knew we needed very fun, original artwork. We commissioned artist James Koenig, who developed our logo, the Con*Quest Adventure Journal™ page designs and our guy. Our guy was very, very important to us and we went through so many variations and versions of him. We finally found the ONE, but we knew a key piece was still missing: A name for said GUY. That’s what we call him. Our guy. Sometimes “little dude.”
That needs to change! Look at him! He’s ADORABLE. He’s taking pictures. He’s getting autographs. He’s CAPTURING CON MEMORIES! He’s like the con-questador of con experiences!So let’s name him! Comment here, on our Facebook page, tweet us or Instagram tag us with an awesome name for our guy before midnight EST on November 9. We’ll pick our favorite and you’ll win a Get Your Con On Con*Quest Adventure Journal t-shirt in your choice of black, navy or red (see all the pictures below). Even if we decide not to use any of the names submitted, we’ll still pick a random winner. So let’s give our dude a name that’s as kick ass as he is. Remember post before your name suggestion by midnight Sunday!
We came up with the Con*Quest Adventure Journal™ from going to cons with our t-shirt brand, One Less Nemesis. I had a file folder in my office of all of my photo ops from the cons I had been to and plastic bags shoved in my bottom desk drawer full of business cards and stickers that I had gathered along the way. The closest thing to journaling or scarpbooking I had ever done was a Smashbook. It was perfect for my life because I just wanted something that I could easily stick stuff in, without worrying about page layouts and intense design. I could literally take the ticket from my daughter’s performance and stick it to a page in the Smashbook – so simple for me! That’s really what I want this journal to be. Simple.
The journal can be used in any way that works for you. Buy it for one big show and fill it up. Buy it for all of your shows and build it up over time, move the pages around, or add to it. There is no right or wrong way to journal your con. To give you some ideas and inspiration, I’d like to share some of our own journal pages along with pages from some of the amazing people we’ve met along the way who have shared their journal pages with us. One of the most touching experiences we’ve had is when Tammy Huff messaged us. Her son Justin is nonverbal and starting going to cons recently. He really had no way to communicate to his friends about his con fun, but with our journal, he and Tammy were able to capture all of that magic on the pages and show people the amazing con experiences he was having. Thank you especially to Tammy for sharing this with us and thank you to everyone who contributed their own journal pages!
For the very first time, we are offering a lapel style pin as our show exclusive for New York Comic Con 2014. With just 2 weeks until the show, I received the pins and opened them up for the first time! These will make great collectibles to commemorate the con and you can stick them on the binding of your Con*Quest Adventure Journal to customize it for the show. Check out my video unveiling below and stop by our booth at NYCC, #2770 to get your Con*Quest Adventure Journal and exhibitor exclusive pin. You can still preorder the journal in our Etsy shop as well!
