It’s official! We’re finalists in the Lincolnshire Digital Awards!

We’re very excited to tell you that we’ve been shortlisted among this year’s finalists in the Best Digital Startup category in the Lincolnshire Digital Awards!  More than 90 nominations were received across the eight award categories, so we’re absolutely thrilled to bits to be a contender.

This is the second year of the Lincolnshire Digital Awards, organised by the Lincolnshire Business magazine to recognise innovative technology in the Greater Lincolnshire Area, and it’s shaping up to be bigger and better than the first in 2015. This year’s judging event will be held at The Engine Shed, on campus at the University of Lincoln, on Thursday, April 28 – in just one week’s time!

Described as the platform that rewards Lincolnshire’s best creative and innovative businesses for their hard work and contribution to Lincoln’s reputation for digital creativity, the award ceremony will feature an evening of digital entertainment – and we’re promised a never-before-seen stage show put together by local talents. There’s stiff competition in our category of course, so we’re crossing our fingers. Whatever happens on the night, we’re just so proud to be recognised and we want to thank you, our customers for all your support.

Wish us luck!

We just can’t get enough of your images!

Are you following us on Facebook? If you are you’ll be aware that we see loads of fantastic, quirky photos featuring mini-figs with our personalised 3D heads. Recently we’re seeing more romantic wedding cake toppers,  cheeky LEGO bank robbers being brought to justice by no-nonsense LEGO cops (thanks for the images Meghaan Lane!) and Han Solo looking armed and dangerous – and actually kinda cute as well (thanks for your image Sara Pierce).

We love seeing your brilliant images and crazy scenarios and, with Captain America and Iron Man squaring up to each other on screen soon, we’re sure there’ll be plenty more coming our way. If you don’t follow us on Facebook – you definitely should. Find us here and be among the first to see our offers and find out what we’re up to. Send us your images and videos and let’s share the mini-figure love!

 

 

 

Give your superhero dad a Father’s Day to remember

Socks? Aftershave? Cordless drill? Up and down the country, thousands of Dads will be hoping for something a little bit different for Father’s Day on June 19. And we think we have the perfect gift – a personalised superhero mini- figure of course!

We think Dads are everyday heroes – they pick us up when we fall, give us hugs when we’re sad, help us with our homework, drive us everywhere, show their sons how to be good men, and their daughters what a good man looks like. And they rescue us when our DIY goes horribly wrong.

Our heroes. They’re always there when we need them. So what could be nicer than showing your Dad that he’s your hero by putting his face on a hero mini-figure?

OK, this will need a bit of planning, but last orders for Father’s Day in the UK is June 1 – outside the UK it’s May 23 – so you have plenty of time to think up a convincing reason why you have to take the two specific photo images needed to make a personalised head. Maybe you’re ‘trying to perfect your photography skills’ and need a willing model?

Then, have fun choosing the brick mini-fig hero that best suits your Dad ready for the arrival of his custom head. Whatever his age, your Dad will be thrilled to know that he’s your hero!

Remember to post photos of your superhero Dad on our Facebook page!
