Good news, friends! The first wave of HDYR merchandise is now available exclusively through TeePublic. Here’s everything you need to know…
After weighing all of our options, this seemed like the best set up for you as customers. No pre-orders, no limited runs, and no waiting - as soon as you order, your item is printed and shipped. Since we have so many international listeners, being able to send this stuff worldwide without any headaches was a big priority.
More importantly, the quality is awesome. After ordering samples of these designs from several outlets, TeePublic was the clear front runner. After months of wear and tear on the prototypes, these shirts look nearly identical to when they first showed up.
Is it just T-shirts?
No! TeePublic's interface isn't the most intuitive, but there's a menu on the left side of the screen for all of the different products these designs are available on - hoodies, mugs, stickers, tote bags, etc. But please note that not every design is available on every single product they offer. Some look better on certain pieces of merch than others. Along those lines, although we've done our best to insure these designs look great across all of the different product and color options, there may be variances. So, having said that...
What if there's a problem with my order?
Although we'd certainly like to know if something goes wrong or doesn't look right, all returns/exchanges/etc. are handled through TeePublic and not us. This is another reason we went with them. Their customer service reputation is stellar.

Check out our new short film, Knock Knock. It was our submission for the My Annabelle Creation contest and that meant there were several guidelines we had to follow. The two most important were that it had to be under two minutes in length and it had to feel like something that could take place in The Conjuring universe.
Our web series The Strange Case of Lucy Chandler has been a massive undertaking, so the idea of taking a weekend to shoot something else and have it finished and uploaded within a week was really appealing. It became a really great way to shift focus, think about something completely different, and then return to Lucy creatively refreshed.
The quick turnaround time meant there wasn’t an opportunity to overthink anything. So once I had settled on the main hook of our entry, most of our prep time was actually spent trying to scale it back and make it as simple as possible. With only two minutes, you have to get it and get out. Trying to build any suspense or tension under those restrictions was frustrating at first, but that challenge became really fun.
The late 60s/early 70s aesthetic was an attempt to make it match The Conjuring films, but it also wound up solving issues like, “Why doesn’t she just use her cell phone to call for help?”
All in all, this is absolutely not something we ever would have put together on our own. So I’m glad we gave it a shot and I’m grateful for the experience. More than anything, it made us anxious to take on more of these bite sized projects while we continue to chip away at the larger ones.
We're proud to announce the debut of Hey, Do You Remember...? - a podcast dedicated to revisiting some of our favorite childhood movies and TV series.
Chris, Donna, and Carlos will pick a new title each episode, share their memories of it, and then see how it holds up. The results are often surprising.
In addition to relating their personal experiences with each film or show, there are also fun segments like The Fashion Corner, Who Would You Be & Who Would You F, and more.
Don't forget to like the HDYR Facebook Page where you can interact with the hosts, watch old trailers and commercials, and find out what's on deck for the next episode.
We're still waiting for approval on iTunes, but in the meantime you can subscribe using our RSS feed.
