The Geek Chic Swag Policy

The Geek Chic Swag Policy

[MEMORANDUM] A Geek Chic internal policy, not redacted, not confidential, for everyone’s eyes only. What is Swag? As much as I like Justin Bieber’s amorphous definition of “like cool but more than that”, I am referring to another bit of slang. Free stuff you get for being present, fortunate or admired. The kind of swag we get at Geek Chic is wildly varied–from T-shirts and papercraft promotional items to gaming keyboards and original art.  We get swag from a wide range of people like hardwood vendors, fellow exhibitors and our awesome customers.  What do we do with Swag?

The Vanguard Origin Story

The Vanguard Origin Story

The Vanguard actually started with the making of a completely different table–The Drop Ship Card Table. We wanted to create a Geek Chic table that was easy to assemble, store, transport, ship by standard mail, and made to limited monthly inventory.  Those goals led us to these design choices: Using industry standard legs. A lightweight, replaceable lid in one color. Minimizing the size and depth of the table to decrease weight. Choosing 2 small sizes that could be easily drop-shipped via standard carriers–like regular UPS or FedEx. The Drop Ship Card Table - (Retired) What we made vs what we want for you We took a...

The Making of an Emissary Table

It's a little known secret that we send our Made-To-Order clients baby pictures of their furniture. What are baby pictures? Baby pictures are a collection of pictures that we take for our clients while their table's parts and pieces are being chosen, sorted, shaped, assembled, coated in several applications of our clear conversion varnish finish, assembled again, checked for quality assurance (QA) and then packed up for home delivery. It's quite a process!We wanted to share some of these pictures with you, as our craftspeople put a lot of themselves into their work. In fact, at least 8 Geek Chic craftspeople have...

The Leaf Block

For 40 years RPG, War, and Board Gamers have asked the fantasy question, “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a table...?” 8 years ago we made that fantasy a reality at Geek Chic.  Innovative dual surface gaming tables that are as at home in dining rooms, living rooms and dens as they are in basements. Almost immediately the question became, “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place to put your leaves when they weren’t on the table?”   8 years and dozens of prototypes later, we (finally) have the Leaf Block. It’s simple- We wanted it to...
