Yes, All Four New Guitar Hero Faceplates have been added and are ready to order.
These came out great - the pickguard guys have created a truly unique and amazing product here - one that not only showcases Coop’s kick ASS designs, but also really takes the crappy Guitar Hero controller to a whole new level.
Not crummy plastic - aircraft quality aluminum!
The Guitar Hero ones have this groovy new strong but removable adhesive so you’re always just a moment away from a mind (and design) change.
September 29, 2008
So far we’ve only got two of the four new designs up (hey we gotta sleep sometime), but we couldn’t resist a little bloggy post to let you know the flow of new goods is definitely ON.
We’ll be adding the other two pickguards right away, and that’s not NEARLY all of what we have in store - so check ‘em out!
September 23, 2008
Didn’t we say we had tons of new stuff?
Well it’s true!
First up is the brand new, redesigned Trick or Treat tee - it’s Coop’s great (and long sold out) design, but bigger and better, and on a super-soft new cotton tee.
We’re in stock and ready to ship this shirt in a full range of sizes for both the men’s shirt AND the ladies’ version, so get cracking!
September 22, 2008
Thanks to everyone who showed up, signed up (yay!) and paid up - Yes we know the new site is working because we’ve been getting yummy new orders all weekend!
It’s killing us how much new stuff we have to launch - in fact we’re a bit swamped figuring out the best way to announce all the new things.
Did you get the new girls hoodie yet? Because they are AWESOME. And we’ve got another new Sourpuss guys shirt coming as soon as we can get the photos and get it set up in our new system.
But there’s more - so much that we’re busting - but that stuff may take another few days to announce.
So RSS feed this blog already!

Remember when we told you that the Coopstuff site turned TEN YEARS OLD back in February? And then we told you we were doing a ground-up remodel?
Well this is it!
We really hope you like the new site – a lot of people did a lot of work – for you!
Oy VEY we’re so modern now!
Yep, we’ve stepped into the 21st Century and Coopstuff now uses a content management system! What does that mean to you, dear Customer?
Before you had to either know where to find what you wanted or have plenty of time to dig around (not a bad thing but hey, we know time is money, even when you’re surfing at work).
NOW we have a Search feature!
Before you had to REMEMBER to check our News page to see if there was any new merchandise or news of Coop’s shows.
Before you had to dig through a lot of pages to experience the full variety of Coop goods.
NOW (here’s hoping) we have super-organized navigation, all from the comfort and pleasantness of the very front page. Never again miss out on something because you didn’t know it existed!

Don't Give Up On Us, Baby -
Yeah yeah, it's been ages since we told you
the new and improved Coopstuff site would be up and at 'em,
and well -- it's not done yet.
But we are SOOOO CLOSE - Really -
Just give us a little more time and
we promise we'll blow you away.
Besides a whole new site structure and graphics, we'll have lots of new merchandise, new features, and the hotly anticipated third and final installment of the PARTS WITH APPEAL giclee.
Can you hold on? Pretty please?
It's a Two-Fer!
We almost forgot!
We’ve been so completely involved in the site re-design that we almost forgot to tell you about the two Big Deal Museum Art Shows featuring Coop opening this weekend!!!
First is the HOT ROD! Show at the College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, and at the same time (and also opening on Saturday June 21) is the HUMONGOUS Juxtapoz show at the Laguna Beach Art Museum.
COLLEGE OF THE CANYONS
26455 Rockwell Canyon Rd
Santa Clarita, CA
Opening reception and car show June 21 from 12-5pm

Brand New—Coop Pickguards for your Telecaster and Precision Bass!
We have to confess we don’t know too much about guitars, but trust the guy who invented this amazing process that brings you these utterly awesome and super-limited edition Coop Pickguards:
Hot rod quality aluminum (T-6061) is bought by the sheet and sheared to spec. All pickguards are CNC machined (not stamped, not plasma-cut, not waterjet-cut) at 0.0900". This is done so that the dimensional integrity of the relationship between pickguard and guitar body remains intact. Once machined, the pickguards are finished, imaged and sealed.
Read more and see/buy all five designs on our Exclusives page before they sell out!
We Warned You!
Section Two of the PARTS WITH APPEAL giclee is officially sold out!
Expect another print soon, and Section Three (the last section of PARTS WITH APPEAL) sometime after that.
And thanks to everyone who snapped up these amazing prints!
At least if you’re talking about the new Giclee Prints we are.
HELMET and the first section of PARTS WITH APPEAL both sold out in a week, and the other two prints are just about gone too.
But you want more!
So here, without delay, is the second section of PARTS WITH APPEAL.
Same dimensions and same edition of 50 prints, and fer crissakes get ’em while they’re hot!
Section Three (last section) is in the hopper, so expect to see that on once these are sold out.
It’s pretty hard to believe, but it’s true—the Coopstuff site went live a little over TEN YEARS AGO!
We’re celebrating, but we also know that 10 years online is like 100 years in the real world, and we realize that Coopstuff is overdue for an overhaul.
Why are we telling you this? Because we love our customers and we respect your opinions!
And because now is the time for you all to pipe up—we’re already hard at work, but more ideas are always welcome.
What do you like about the Coopstuff site?
What do you hate about it?
What would you like to see us build into the new site?
For sure we’re adding a mailing list and newsletter feature, as well as a search function.
But what else would you want to see?
Follow this email link and give us a piece of your mind!
And thank you—we know you guys are all cutting edge, and we appreciate your input!
Yep, it’s once again That Time Of Year—when we start releasing the New Coop Stuff!
Three new shirt images for guys and gals, with the gals tees cut Tight And Cute!
Kids have a new tee shirt design too, plus a new colorway and more sizes on the onesies.
Response was OVERWHELMING to the Boingboing tees (which are almost gone), so we’re exploring the concept of limited editions on all the new merch.
In other words, this stuff isn't going to be available forever, so grab it while you can!
Coop just sent us this image of his newest Original for sale.
It's his usual, unframed, ink on paper, 18 by 24 inches, and the price is $2000.
Email us if you're interested - we expect this one to go pretty fast!
And expect more news soon!

And watch this space for a ton of exciting new stuff for 2008:
New merch, new prints, new originals—it’s all coming at you ... SOON!!!
We Warned You!
Response to the new giclee prints has been astounding!
In one week the HELMET print sold out, and the PARTS WITH APPEAL is officially sold out too. Hurry if you want to get one!
Thanks to everyone who jumped on these—we are thrilled with them, and apparently so are you.
Look for more giclees once we catch our breath—
And meantime keep enjoying this great holiday season!
Super Limited BoingBoing Shirts
For Guys AND Gals!
Still looking for last-minute gifts?
How about the new BoingBoing shirts?
Coop and Ruth are bosom buddies with the folks at BoingBoing, and when they asked Coop to design their first new shirt in years, of course he said yes.
So fresh from the printers, we offer you—New Tees!
The black shirts feature Glow In The Dark Ink!
Shirts are top quality 100% cotton shirts, printed in the good old USA.
The appearance below, plus FOUR NEW PRINTS?
Impossible, you say?
Not for us!
Our webteam's been working overtime, but these New Giclees are now available for purchase through our shopping cart.
These four prints are the first in our brand new Giclee series. Editions are 50 pieces each and all prints are priced at $100 each.
You can not afford to miss out on these, especially not at this time of year! The shopping cartis up and running now, but we can still arrange Paypal payments via EMAIL to secure the prints before they sell out.

Could the holidays be here already?
Looks like they are!
all must have been good Boys and Girls,
because this year Coop will be appearing at the
VTN Show instead of the Mooneyes show!
We know that every year the Mooneyes show is Coop’s only appearance, but that show gets bigger every year, with fewer artists and more just plain retailers. The artists are getting edged out, the spaces are getting smaller and smaller, and so this year Coop's only appearance will be signing his FULL TOY LINE at the VTN Winter 2007 Art & Toy Show.

We love Poker...
...and apparently so do you!
We’re proud to announce these brand new, super-amazing Limited Edition Ultra-Custom Poker Chips.
Printed on solid high-density, single composition poker chips, the Coop Limited ceramic poker chips are high end chips similar to the poker chips used in many casinos worldwide. The image is actually embedded into the material of the chip. It is not a label, sticker, or painted/printed on top of the chip. These are not the metal-slugged plastic chips that are used in the majority of home games.
Each chip has a different front and back! One side of each chip has the trademark Coop artwork of a devil grinning and smoking a cigar while the other side of each chip is a completely unique design.
Click on the banner above to see the entire collection.
Be sure to stop by our revamped Originals page listing all the current original Coop pieces now available for sale. These range from large acrylic paintings, to ink drawings and pencil sketches, perfect for the collector and art aficionado.
We got a lot of emails asking for Coop “tubes”—and you guys who use them know what they are—so we hooked up with MyPSPTubes.com, and as of today they are available for download.
If that link doesn’t work, go to the second page of New PSP Tubes and the Coop images are about halfway down.
More designs will be added soon, but we wanted to let you know about these first ones as soon as they’re released.
Which is now!
Get a mop and bucket, because we’ve got new stuff coming out in every direction!
Okay, here goes—
#1 The Kids’ Line
SPAWN OF COOPSTUFF!
Coop fans have been keeping busy making more Coop fans, and we’re finally able to dress them!
The new COOP KIDS line has been in the works for a while now, and after many false starts, the first batch of stuff is finally here.
Please to enjoy the new onesies (more sizes coming), plus a kids’ tee.
All of these are 100% nice soft cotton, and are available in both black and grey, with more stuff to come.
#2 NEW GIRL TEES!
These are Super Fresh-Fresh!
These girl tees are of softest cotton, cut to flatter your shape, and for the first time—hang onto your wigs and keys—available in XL!
(yes, we’re listening!)
So far we have the Wrench Devil in both black and red, and are expecting more styles by the end of the year.
Let us know what images you’d like to see and we’ll forward your emails to the brain trust.
But for now, get ’em while they’re hot because we’re only making small batches of each design and when they’re sold out they’re gone!
New Original Art!
We’ve just received an amazing shipment of new Original Art from Coop!
Check out our ORIGINALS page to see this bonanza of beauty, much of it already lovingly framed for you.
And for the first time, Coop’s offering up some original sketches for sale too.
Go on—be the envy of this year’s 4th of July block party—Buy Art!
Spring Has Sprung!
We hear it’s still the dead of winter in some parts of the country, but everything’s coming up roses here at Coopstuff.
We’ve got A LOT of great new stuff in store for you, but for now here’s a sneak-peek at the first of the new goodies to arrive in our warehouses (click on the images to get ’em) —
Here are a couple of neat new styles to hold you over until the rest of the new shirts come in.
(HINT: We’re revamping all the Coop shirts this year. This may be your last chance to snag the black tees....)
A bunch of new stickers are in the work, but for now here’s another little tease!
More Bad Jokes:
Condoms Going Up!
It turns out that in our zeal to get these condoms (ahem) up and out to you, we made a mistake on the price. You early birds (and you know who you are) got them at the wrong price!
We’ve made the correction (a mere two bucks more) and now normalcy can be restored to the universe.
Sorry for any confusion!
Don’t say “Breaking” News!
We don’t want you to think about breaking when we tell you about our newest arrival: Yes, we just now got our first shipment of the Brand New COOP CONDOMS!
These are the finest quality condoms (natural latex, so please be advised if you are allergic), each individual package lovingly printed with one of four delightful Coop images.
What stands between you and a host of diseases and unplanned pregnancies? Why not let it be Coop?
We’re getting these as “assorted” so that’s how we’re selling them, one dozen to an assortment, for a little under a buck a condom. We’ll do our best to make the distribution even, but please don’t try to return them if you get more of one design than another.
The only thing we want to see less than a return—is a returned CONDOM!
More Coop goodies to thrill and fulfill your wildest dreams!
