The Targimals want to celebrate your birthday!

Join Forge of Honor's Birthday Club and get a fun card mailed to you on your birthdayWe’re not quite sure whose idea it was, but Tang claims he thought about it first. So, with support from the whole gang, we are launching the Forge of Honor Birthday Club.

If you love opening up real mail (who doesn’t?), sign up to get a very special birthday card delivered via snail-mail from the Targimals.

The Birthday Club is taking sign ups now, but mailing won’t start until September 2014. If you have a birthday in August and don’t mind belated greetings, sign up anyway and let us know you still want a card.

Getting on our list is easy. Just sign up for our Fan Club!

Sign up =>

If you’re already a member of our Fan Club, you can update your subscription to include family birthdays. You need to do two things: Find the last email newsletter and scroll all the way down until you see “Update subscription preferences.” Click that and you’ll be whisked to your custom portal in our Fan Club where you can update your information.

Looking forward to wishing you a happy birthday!

Our founding father, Dale Taylor at Forge of Honor’s first Anime Expo booth, #1613.

Busy week for us. We spent Wednesday at the Los Angeles Convention Center organizing our very FIRST booth! You need to check it out.


Go to Anime Expo, the fantastically colorful conference dedicated to Japanese art that starts today in Los Angeles.

Yesterday was crazy! People were in lines all around the building waiting to register and pick up their tags. And many came dressed — for the Cos. That’s cosplay, or costume play. Hmmm… maybe someday, we’ll design Targimal costumes!

Come join the fun! We’ll be there starting today through Sunday. And yes, it’s open on July 4th! Bring the kids.

We’re at booth #1613, near Hulu and Bait.

Free stickers, coloring pages, and other fun stuff if you stop by! We’ll be posting pictures of the show on Facebook and in another blog post. Share your own Forge of Honor/Anime Expo photos on Twitter or Facebook with #forgeofhonor.
