Happy Art Fight Everyone!


In celebration for this Art Fight, and as a little bit of insinteve to do chaimi attacks and add your chaimis to Art Fight, I've provided some Art Fight themed Chaimi badges!

If your Chaimi is attacked over the course of this Art Fight, you can put one of these badges on their profile depending on your team!

|| Chaimi 1st Anniversary Art Book ||

Finally after months of drafting we finally have an art book all to ourselves! It contains talents from around the community. I spent a long time working very hard on this book and I hope it shows in the end <3 We have four options for you to experience the book: Two physical and two digital. We're offering the digital version for free and the physical copies are print on demand where the only expense is shipping cost (See below for breakdown.) 

I hope to do this again sometime as I had an absolute blast with it! Happy Chaimi-versary everybody!

For a limited time we have a prompt to get the limited edition decorative art book item for your Chaimi's inventory!

 

||Disclaimer||

 

  • I do not have my copy yet. While I have spent days proofing and checking previews and final print notices, please be warned that there might be printing errors in this edition including problems with pagination. Please be advised of this risk as refunds cannot be issued (due to the entire cost being towards printing)
  • The art and characters in the book belong to their respective copyright holders. Do not use or re-post artwork from this book in any way, shape or form. This includes using these pieces for references.
  • We are not profiting off of the physical copy of the book. If you require further investigation you are welcome to try Lulu's quote tool to view the pricing as well. The pricing breakdown is shown in the appropriate sections below as well. 
  • Please do not re-upload or share the pdf
  • Prices listed are in USD
  • Prices are exclusively for printing and shipping. We do not make a cent on the book purchases as this is a project to celebrate the community.
  • Human errors are a thing and it is possible the first print edition of the books might be flawed. If you would like to hold off, I can share a cop

||Frequently Asked Questions||

Q: When will these be removed from the Lulu store?

A: They will always be available unless it is removed automatically.

Q: I wanted to participate but I couldn't get my art in on time. Can you still include me?

A: Unfortunately due to the amount of work that goes into this book and index, there was a hard deadline.  We might do another in the future. If you would like to be included, there is a possibility to add you to a future edition of the economy print and PDF copies so you are welcome to contact but I will likely be removing the files from my laptop as I don't have the time to maintain.

Q: I submitted my art on time but I don't see it included.

A: Contact me immediately. There were cases where a person had left the community or we had reason to believe we should remove it.

Q: Why does the premium print have one fewer page? 

A: I got permission from Chi too late to include it in the premium print as I had a 50 page limit for cost reasons for the premium print. Due to the way the books are printed, there would be additional paper waste with an uneven number of pages. The economy version has this page because the cost of additional pages is reasonable.

Q: I want a print but I want a different combo of options (i.e. hardcover, coated pages with standard print, premium with the additional page etc)

A: Message me and I can get it set up for you if the request is reasonable. Please use the quote tool to ensure the cost is okay before requesting.

Q: How are you making no money on this?

A: The printing is print on demand. All of the cost is going towards printing as per the lulu guidelines. You can double check prices using the quote tool and the price breakdowns below each section. The main reason is because this is a community celebration. The physical copies are to celebrate a year in Teacup rather than make a profit.

Q: How can I calculate shipping?

A: See Lulu's quote tool for approximate shipping cost. It is around $5USD to the US, $7 to canada etc.

Welcome to Chaimi Café!

Posted 3 years ago :: Last edited 3 years ago by PaperTsubaki

~Welcome to the Chaimi Café ~

Welcome to the Chaimi Café!

I'm your Barista, Juliette! Thank you so much for stopping by!
You're a human visitor right? Well you might be a bit confused then! This is the land of Teacup, where Chaimis of all species live their lives when they're not with their humans! 
You're in the city of Biscotti, the central city and shopping district. In our world, we can teleport from city to city using teapot-holes (Portals from one city to the next). Feel free to have a look around!

 

Joining the Cafe:

Did you want to start your new life in Teacup? Here's a few things that you need to know!

  • A Deviantart account is required in order to use most of the features on the site. Once you link your deviantart account, you will be able to receive your Chaimis.
  • You can set your Chaimi profiles and whether or not you feel comfortable accepting gift art / literature!
  • If you would like to transfer balance from Discord (minimum of 30,000 tealeaves), Claim a chaimi or anything else that requires action, please submit a claim.
  • Tealeaves are an easy-to-earn currency that can be earned both on the discord or on-site. Chaivaries are a very rare treasure that are very difficult to earn. 100 Chaivaries are equal to $1.
  • Prompts are a regularly changing way to particiate in the Chaimi world! Different prompts grant different rewards and allow you to bond with your Chaimis!
  • Shopping Plaza is where you can find all goods for your stay here! Chaimi slots, special traits, items to show off your style and other fun treats await!
  • Raffles are where you can win something fun! Keep an eye out!

Rules:

  • Do not trace, copy, steal other peoples' work.
  • Do not beg or guilt others
  • Do not try to exploit loopholes.
  • Be kind!
  • Please notify of masterlist changes
  • If you plan to use items for multiple Chaimis (House deed aside) please purchase the items for each chaimi.
  • For traits, most require a trait change music box in order to use on existing Chaimi. However, they can be used on new MYOs with no additional item.
