MARKO 2016


We don’t know about you… but this election cycle hasn’t been fun enough! That’s why we’re having a sale this week. Just use coupon code: MARKO2016 to save 20% off your entire order in the Cartel online store.

As the Cartel Party we promise to…
  • Advocate that t-shirts are legitimate work attire for church office hours.
  • Tell your boss that leading a mission trip is not considered vacation time even if it was to the Bahamas.
  • Help you justify 6 dozen water balloons, a canned ham, and 100 clothes pins as a business expense.
  • Develop downloadable curriculum because sometimes lesson prep time gets eaten up with more important stuff.
  • Remind you that the proper ratio when ordering is 1 large pizza for every 4 people.
  • Create resources, coaching and training that will seriously mess with your head.
  • Be your biggest fan.
  • Tell you the truth.

Free shipping on Bibles for Graduation


We give a copy of The Way to all of our graduating high school seniors knowing that it is a powerful resource they can turn to when they need encouragement, clarity, and hope for the future. The Way Bible features an easy to follow translation, a crisp/clean format, and practical thoughts and commentary to help older teens and young adults navigate a phase of life in which so many seem to walk away from faith.
– Jason Elam, Palmerdale United Methodist Church

The Fiscal Cliff Sale

First off, I hope you get the not impressed meme. When I saw this photo of President Obama with U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney on the White House flickr feed, I just knew we had to have some fun with that.

Marko and I were sharing a cup of coffee last week, catching up on some business stuff between mentions of holiday plans, and one of us mentioned the doomsday tone of all this fiscal cliff stuff. First of all, doesn’t fiscal cliff sound like the name of a Dave Ramsey-inspired middle school retreat? I mean, isn’t this an economics thing? Isn’t the only thing scary about this new cycle is the lengths to which the news will go to scare people? I digress.

So we decided to have a little fun… you know... enjoy the last couple of weeks before it all implodes, vindicating the Mayans.

With all of that in mind we are having a sale this week on all of our products. And in true fiscal cliff form– the more you spend the more you save. 

  • Spend $20 – $49.99 and save 15%.
  • Spend $50 – $99.99 and save 25%.
  • Spend $100 or more and save 35%.

Coupon code? You don’t need a coupon code. We’ve set up our store to automatically adjust the price when you look at your cart.

When does the sale end? It starts today and end either on December 16th, 2012 or when the world ends. (Whichever comes first.)
