Today I got a custom-made magic mug from PrintiQ8i. The magic mug is black and when you pour hot water into it the picture shows.

20121117-233410.jpg

PrintiQ8i is an online store that provides customers with printing and software services:

- Microsoft Office
-Adobe Photoshop
-Movie Maker
-Creat Business Card,ID and ,Greeting Card and invitations
-Laminating Pouch
-Print on T-Shirts
-Print on mugs, magic mugs and stainless steel mugs
-Print on smartphone covers
-Print on glass frame
-Brochures

I got a chance to interview the owner of PrintiQ8i, here is what I asked:

Question: when did PrintiQ8i started?
Answer: March 1, 2012

Q: How did you come up with the idea of the business, what made you want to start it?
A My Mother was a KG teacher she had to work on a lot of printing stuff. So I used to always help her since was younger. I was the computer professional of the family, I would work on photoshop, and printing.. After that I came up with the idea of small business something like a printing center. Few years ago, I work with my Friend Eman to start our own business and we called it E&R. At that time twitter wasn’t so famous in kuwait. we had difficulties promoting our business therefore customers were circled around our relatives and friends. No one knew about us…
After a few Months of working we shut down our business. Later on, In February 2012 to be exact I was fixing some old files when I found some of our brochures. .:). I asked my friends and family their opinion on reopening the business. They said I should and supported me. Then I thought of having a new brand name and Logo something cool that would attract customers. I came up with the name Printi Q8i ( like when I say my printer is kuwaiti ) a kuwaiti hand made. I started to marketing through twitter and I received my First Order in 1- March- 2012. Designing, printing…. Etc. After a small break I came up with a new idea. Why not print on blanks? Like T-shirts, mobile cases, Mugs…. Etc. It turned out to be successful this time around. People like to customize their own things.

Q: So how long does each order take to be delivered? Like if I were to order today when will I likely receive my order?
A: Usually they are ready the next day. if I have a lot of orders at the same time it would take about 2-3 days

Q: Have you participated in any expos, and are you planning to participate in any in the near future?
A: I did once, in wataniya telecome expo on April 2012. The expo was 3 days long. That’s how I market my business. I’m not planing on participating in any more expos though… Since I don’t have the time. I think twitter and instagram are enough for now.

Q: Where do you see PrintiQ8i 5 years from today?
A: For now I only want it as a small business. I enjoy working at home in my free time. Also I can’t tell what will happen in the future..

Q: Is there anything you would like to add?
A: I would like to thank you(sayuricero) for volunteering to write about my small business. Its an opportunity to let everybody know what’s is PrintiQ8i. That approves you like my work, and is encouraging me <;;;;;3 also help support young Kuwaiti in their small business (y) And before all Thanks to Allah for the success. Then thanks to the customers of course .. Without them .. And their support I wouldn't have Continued.

Q8 Figures

A few days ago I was followed in instagram by an account called Q8_figures. It turned out that it’s a business for selling anime figures. You might wonder what’s so special about that, you can get figures anywhere. Well my friend they don’t just have any anime figures, they have pretty rare ones. Plus, their anime figures are brought directly from Japan. So, you have rare original figures… You’ll probably think that it must be expensive. It’s not the figure prices are pretty reasonable.

If you’re still not convinced see for yourself:

I got a chance to interview the business owner Mohammad:

Q1: Tell me about the idea behind q8 figure.

Ans: I’m a video game and anime freak for as long as I can remember and I am obsessed with anything Japanese. In 2001 I used to order raw anime collections: figures and collectibles from Japan cause I wanted to be sure it’s authentic. So 3 weeks ago some of my friends were telling me about a new figure store and showing me photos. It was insanely expensive. So I went back to my source in Japan and checked with him and I felt how people suffer to get authentic stuff with reasonable prices. So its more like am helping follow collectors with their hobby. I am really happy cause I am doing something I like. Also the customer is happy getting what they need.

Q2: How did you come up with the idea?

Ans: I’ve been thinking for like 5 years to get my own business. I thought about video games but if there is delay in your video games you will close your store. Authentic and good figures aren’t like video games you can sell a 2008 figure with a higher price now because it’s rare. Figures by time become rare. I was afraid of failing but now I decided to give it a shot. For the first 2 weeks of work, I’m really happy. Though it’s still in progress and I need to improve a lot of stuff. I’m doing my best.

Q3: what is the next step for the project?

Ans: I like the work of a warehouse and catalogs, an online store for figures and collectables. The warehouse is to store goods and deliver them to customers. For now I’m working alone but who knows. The only problem I’m facing right now is that not everyone knows the figure or it’s size. So a YouTube channel might be a solution to video the box the size of the box in 3 dimensions. There is also the fact that I’m targeting certain type of customers. People that are looking for authentic stuff because there is a lot of people cheating and selling Chinese fake figures. There are also people that don’t need or care for authentic stuff.

Q4: Who supported or encouraged you, when you first started the project?!

Ans: just me, my wife always said that I will be good in any business. I have a good mind, and I was thinking a lot. Then I decided to start and give it a shoot. I though even if I were to fail I won’t lose anything, at least I tried. Now I am addicted. I’m monitoring stuff 3 to 4 times a day, ordering, combining, calculating, to get the best results for me and the customers.

Q5: If you get a chance to cooperate with another anime related business, figures or otherwise would you do it?! Like if a store asked you to put the products you sell in their store for sale would you go for it?!

Ans: No, I want work alone or with my friends only. I’m not selling stocks. I’m only selling one to two pieces of each item. Plus it’s important to me not to mix the fake with the original.

Q6: For those who aren’t familiar with the idea of collecting anime figures as a hobby, what would you like to tell them?!

Ans: Its a hobby like any other hobby. At least when you collect figures they portrait themselves as painting unlike stamps and coins. There is also the art of placing figures. They just can’t be all over the place.

Q7: What figures will we find in stoke by the next month?!

Ans: Well depends, everyday there are additions. The business is expanding, there are shirts coming soon, and a lot of figures. I’ve decided to place photos in instagram and write the release, the approximate time of the item’s arrival and updating sold items by writing “sold” in the comment. I’ll bring authentic one piece shirts from cospa the best Japanese company there is. Even though most of them are rare, back ordered and it’s a real pain to get sizes. Still I’m waiting for them soon inshallah. Let’s hope everything goes well. I don’t place pictures in instagram that I might not get. So all the items in instagram are guaranteed. With time and budget I’ll try to get everything: Key-chains, pendants, mugs, manga, special DVDs, blue-ray, plush, chibi characters, and there are also small towels. So pretty much everything anime related.
