Skull Appreciation Day 2012 Exhibition/Giveaway!

Skull-A-Day is taking Skull Appreciation Day on the road this year!

The Skull-A-Day staff will be spending this June 4th at the Philadelphia's Mütter Museum with a one-day exhibition of skull art from around the world. We will be bringing dozens of original pieces of art from last year's Skull Appreciation Day exhibit along with a bunch of brand new mail art pieces!

If you're in the area I hope you'll come by and say hi between 10am and 5pm on June 4th. And even if you're not in the area, you can participate by sending in your own original skull mail art for us to display, details are HERE.

As a special bonus we're giving away 50 limited edition silver Skull Appreciation Day pins (1.25" diameter featuring the skull/heart icon and the words "June 4") to the first 50 people* that send a self addressed stamped envelope (with 2 first class stamps on it) to us at:  

PO Box 73236
Richmond, VA 23235

*Don't wait if you want to get a pin! We'll let you know when we've run out. And don't worry, even if we run out of pins after you've mailed us your envelope, we'll still send you something fun back in it!

2011 Skull Appreciation Day Posters!

Last Chance: Only 4 Left!

We printed up a bunch of posters for the first annual international Skull Appreciation Day event in Richmond, Virginia on the backs of recycled brown grocery bags to put up around town. The response was so positive that we decided to do a small run of archival prints for sale!

This two-color screenprinted poster is 6.125" x 17.5" (15.55 cm x 44.45 cm) on recycled PCF acid-free 100# cover stock. It is signed, numbered, and limited to only 100 pieces.

Even if you weren't able to celebrate with us in person you can still show your Skull Appreciation Day spirit with one of these posters for only $10. Get it at the Skull-A-Day store HERE.

And don't forget we have Skull Appreciation Day logo shirts and buttons available in the store as well.
