Final deadlines approaching for Xmas shipping in USA Shop

Hi everyone,

For any of you last-minute shoppers out there, just a reminder that we are reaching the final (final!) deadlines for shipping by Xmas in our USA Shop. Last chance to order with 2-day is Monday the 18th, and final call for the season is express shipping on Tuesday the 19th. So if you've been thinking about placing an order, don't delay!

Happy Holidays!

USA and EU T-shirts of the week: 17 Dec 2006

This week both stores are featuring "dropping science", a retro-style pun design. Available also in glow-in-the-dark print!

December 14th is the last day for 4-day shipping - USA Shop

Just a reminder, tomorrow (Dec 14th) is the last day to order with 4-day shipping (USA Shop) and still have your order received by Xmas. Shipping starts at only $6.39. After the 14th, there is a few more days until the final Xmas ordering cutoff but it involves express shipping and is a lot pricier. So don't delay! Place your final orders by tomorrow.

Shipping guarantees for Xmas have already passed in our EU shop, unfortunately, but email gift certificates are always available, never late, and give your recipient the gift of choice. Also valid towards custom orders.

Happy Holidays!

USA and EU T-shirts of the week: 10 Dec 2006

This week we have glow-in-the-dark infinity symbol t-shirts on sale in both stores, as well as a cool new women's underwear version of the same design in flock print. Stop by and check it out!

Standard shipping is no longer guaranteed for Christmas in either shop, but the USA shop still has guaranteed 4-day or faster shipping available until the 14th. Another flexible option is a gift certificate, if you don't know what to get or aren't sure of a size. Email us for more details.

USA and EU T-shirts of the week: 03 Dec 2006

T-shirts of the week are now posted, and this week we'll be featuring serotonin in both shops:
Don't forget, this is the last week to order with standard shipping and still have your order arrive in time for Xmas. The US store cutoff is Dec 6 and the EU store is Dec 7. You can still order standard shipping after that but the chances are higher of your order not reaching the recipient in time.

Hi everyone, we were a bit delayed today with getting the t-shirt of the week out, but this week in the USA shop we'll be featuring one of the classics: the caffeine t-shirt! Customization available, email us if you'd like something special.

Meanwhile our 3 Euro discount sale continues in the EU shop, but not for much longer! Sale ends Thursday.

YellowIbis presents: the new Holiday Gift Guide!

We're now officially launching a little side project of ours that's been beta for a while, just in time for the holidays. It's the YellowIbis Gift Guide (click here to open), a compilation of unique gifts that fall into several categories: practical gifts useful to the working scientist, science-themed gifts, and science-themed children and young adult books. We think you'll find our focus and our choice of gift ideas to be unique, and we hope it will help you find the perfect gift for your favorite scientist.

The guide is still in its early stages and we need your input to help it grow... If you have a wonderful idea that you don't see listed, please consider submitting it! We love to hear from you.

Happy Holidays!

Technical Difficulties: 28 Oct 2006

Hi everyone,
