Even though many of you have complemented the old mayamada website, we felt it was still time for a change to push things forward.
We’ve been hard at work on the new website so it’s now easier for you to get products, find out about every mayamada character and see events past and present.
Here are some of the changes…
Brand New Layout
We’ve brought together all the main mayamada highlights in one place so you can get a better picture of what’s new with mayamada at any time.
New Online Shop
Our shop has been given a major overhaul for 2013. More items are now available available to purchase. Not only t-shirts but caps, accessories and the new Samurai Chef manga book.
You can also create your own account to view order status and history. And as always, we accept all major credit cards or you can pay with your Paypal account.
The blog has been brought into the main site so you can always come back to mayamada.com to see what the latest news is.
You can also check out out our Facebook Page to get involved with the brand.
It has be a long time coming but character profiles are now up on the site as well as manga for each. This includes an online preview of the Samurai Chef manga.
Right now you can take a look at the 11th Hour, Hot lunch and Samurai Chef shows. Before the year is up, expect to see this section of the website grow with more shows and more characters.
You can also keep up to date with all mayamada event past and present in one place.
The events section is the place to find out the next event coming up, or to see a selection of videos and photos from events gone by so you never miss out.
And for the full photo galleries, you can always head to our Facebook page.
But don’t just take our word for it. Have a look for yourself ^_^
mayamada.com – Original Anime Inspired Clothing
A brand new mayamada website is coming Monday May 6th.
Look out for it this Bank Holiday along with a Bank Holiday promotion.
What’s more, the new Samurai Chef manga book and t-shirt will both be available for purchase. Stay tuned…
Last week I came to realise the importance of keeping high standards within your brand.
We were putting together a secret gift to give away soon (can’t say what yet, that part’s a surprise) and I got to see the “completed” work a couple weeks ago.
Why the quote marks? Well those weren’t actually my words as it was quite far off what I had in mind for the final product and arranged to have the job restarted.
We could have accepted it as it was – it wasn’t a complete disaster after all. But it wasn’t good enough to represent our brand so we had to wait the extra week to have them done again and done properly.
Patience is a virtue (I guess)
It was a shame as we wanted them in time for a promotional party we were invited to, so it was frustrating for me to wait and miss that date.
However, it’s so important to set high standards your brand and not allow yourself to dip below them. In truth, they should be raised over time – especially if you’re just starting out. We now have the finished product and they look exactly as we wanted.
Don’t rush to put things out before they are ready if the end result will be detrimental to your brand.
Though I don’t own any product with an ‘i’ in front, I do admire Apple’s no compromise adherence to the quality of their brand. More often than not they release a product when it is ready to wow people (not always the case ) and not a moment before.
Do it right, not quick
When it comes down to it this is your brand and you have to always ask yourself: “am I comfortable giving this to someone, even for free?” In this case the answer was a clear “no” and that means that however frustrating waiting is, in the long run your brand will benefit if you continue to maintain high standards.
Keep in mind high doesn’t mean perfect – very few things are, but you have to be comfortable having that item – whether it’s t-shirts, stickers, badges, hoodies or your website – represent your brand. If it’s a bad product, that’s your brand so make sure that whatever you’re giving to customers and fans is good enough to represent that.

Those of you that tune into these pages often will know that we’ve recently finished our rebranding and have a new range of tees out under the new mayamada brand. You’ll also know that we have been hard at work on our new website. Well…(deep breath)…it’s done!
It’s been a massive effort and a big thanks goes to everyone who pitched in along the way (you know who you are), we couldn’t have done it without you.
You can take a look right now, check out the shows on offer an maybe even pick up a tee.
We hope you like it, let us know what you think of it in the comments our at our Facebook page. We can’t wait hear from you.
