Why Quality and Licensed Products Matter November 01, 2016 16:11

In the world of online shopping, there's a lot of choices both big and small, but the little things matter and that's what we pride ourselves in here at PopCultureSpot.com! Over the past several years, we've seen the proliferation of unlicensed products from stickers to decor and our line of products aren't immune.

There are certain sites that allow for the printing of copyrighted material and some giants that are flooded with fakes and do nothing about it. It might not seem like a big deal on the surface, but scratch below and you find out that everyone gets affected. When you purchased licensed products (e.g. Harry Potter stickers, Disney Tsum Tsum keychains), not only are you getting officially sanctioned products, but also high quality merchandise. We're seen a growing number of fakes online of many stickers and when they arrive at home as a customer, they're nothing short of a huge disappointed. Poorly cut, pixelated, and just seemingly off. We've found that the stickers are made of poor quality materials and wear incredibly quickly.

While it might be enticing to buy a product because it's at a rock bottom price, you'll find that in the end, the quality is so poor that you'll be out looking for a replacement in no time. Here at PopCultureSpot.com, we offer quality, officially licensed products from pins to stickers. They're made with with the highest quality materials and will last for a long time. We've offered for years a combination of excellent pricing and affordable shipping options and we're very pleased that you've stopped by and greatly appreciate your business!

Environmental Sustainability March 23, 2016 09:17

Since our inception, it's been extremely important for us to be environmentally responsible. Over the years, we've continued to refine and improve our methods, so we'd like to let you know some of things that we do!

  • Minimal Product Packaging 

    For our exclusively manufactured products, we choose to not have header cards and plastic packaging for the products. There isn't a need for header cards as they aren't being used on display racks and virtually all plastic wrap is non-recyclable. It's important for us to streamline the environmental impact of manufacturing process. We also push for suppliers to use minimally wasteful packaging and to ensure that the packaging components are fully recyclable. 

  • Shipping Packaging

    We've spent years testing and working to precisely package our products. Our shipments use packaging that are designed to be the most durable for the shipment process and uses space extremely wisely.

    Our shipping containers are all purchased locally and manufactured in our region. Only our packaging tape is not made locally, but is Made in the USA.

  • Office Recycling

    Whether we are in a business office or in our fulfillment facility, we sort all materials. Whether it is a strip that covers the seal on a padded mailer to cardboard from incoming shipments, every single item is separated and properly disposed of. We recycle nearly 80% of all office waste, which is something that we're incredibly proud of, but hope to even improve upon even more!

2016 International Air Mail Rate Increases January 20, 2016 08:12

Effective January 19, 2016

Each January marks the time where the United States Postal Services revises their postage rates and this year is no different. In 2015, the USPS held rates steady as they had increased rates by 86% on average in the prior year and 2016 marks another substantial increase in International shipping rates as well as domestic. 

One of our core business principals is sending smiles around the world. Our office map of the world is loaded with customers from nearly every spot on the globe and we love hearing from our worldwide customers. We know that there are two phenomenom occurring: Increased rates and a strengthening of the U.S. Dollar against most currencies. At PopCultureSpot.com, we have done everything that we can do to mitigate the costs increases, so here's some of the details.

Up until this point, USPS Air Mail prices varied based upon every few ounces and that now varies by every half pound. Once you go from 15.9 ounces to one pound, the rates nearly double. Based on our customer ordering patterns, we're looking at an average increase of shipping cost of 28% per order. This applies to all countries other than Canada. For our friends in Canada, in three years, we have seen a doubling of rates. USPS rates to Canada and Mexico are lower than other all other International locations, but gaps are closing in. 

Here's our policy and what we're doing:

  • You're paying our cost. 
  • The shipping rate is for the cost of shipping and packaging.

It's really that simple. We're not marking up the cost, you're paying the cost of shipping from us, period. Please keep in mind that lightweight packages for items like stickers, pins, and costume props remain lower in price. 

Thank you for your continued business!

 


2016 Shipping Increases & Quality Matters January 14, 2016 08:29

As we near our 18th anniversary in business, the PopCultureSpot.com Team has seen shipping rates rise well above inflation year after year with no slowdown in sight. All three major carriers are increasing shipping charges that will generally increase rates by 12%-23% based upon delivery location, weight, and package size.

Outside of some major corporations that subsidize shipping with "free" or ultra-low rates, it just isn't reality for all the other businesses that constitute nearly all the mail-order merchants in the United States. We have done everything possible to mitigate shipping costs even switching to our extremely fair flat-rate shipping system. 

Here at PopCultureSpot.com, we're not a behemoth company with shareholders and the bottom line trumping all. We provide exciting and unique products with many of them being exclusively produced for us. The difference is that we are very keen on quality control. Do you ever notice that you might go to a certain store and they or their merchants have prices that way lower than elsewhere? We understand that your first inclination might be that it's awesome because the prices are so low. Many times, they are so low that the products are actually being sold below the cost that the business paid. But, things aren't always as they appear.

We've found that so many products are cheap knockoffs that fail. In our world of toys and novelties, we find that many competitors are using way thinner plastics or parts that are made to fail. It's one of our major differences, we seek out quality products, quality materials, and provide to you quality care.

As for the 2016 shipping rate increases, as of today, we're holding steady with out flat-rate shipping charge within the United States. Our average package shipping rate will be increasing 18%. We simply want to let you know how much we value your business and we're doing absolutely everything we can to mitigate the cost increase.

 We also invite you to view our first Vlog that directly addresses the issue of quality control and product standards.

It's simple, we can't do this without you. Your continued business and support is so greatly appreciated. What started out as a small idea in 1998 and here we are closing in on two decades providing pop culture fun around the globe!
