All is go at the FCJ headquarters. We've decided to launch earlier than normal this year because of the demand and feedback from emails we have received. We're impressed at how many people are planning their xmas presents so early and don't want to miss out on a Funky Christmas Jumper. Our Launch date is Midday Monday the 15th October. Sign up to our newsletter on FunkyChristmasJumpers.com to stay updated.
Each year we decide that we need to change our website and it'll definitely be the last time(well for a few years!), Guess what, it happened again this year. The new design is coming together nicely and is a nice gradual improvement on last years site and will make purchasing your Christmas Jumper even smoother.
We have even more new designs to choose from this year, with some popular old designs making a comeback as well as some new designs. We will be launching a new style of jumper which will appeal to even more funky fans. We have a new matching kids and adults jumpers which is awesome. Finally we have one other new product to make sure no matter where you are you are funked up and feeling the Christmas spirit.
We had great fun shooting our 2012 photo shoot earlier in the week with some old and new faces. We have gone with a completely different theme from last year which was loads of fun to shoot. The photos are still with the photographer so we haven't seen them yet. Keep an eye out on our instagram account (FunkyChristmasJumpers) as we may put up some behind the scenes images up in the coming week.

Our FCJ Wardrobe app for the iPhone will be updated with our new designs and will be available a week after our launch date.
We will again have a pop-up store in Central Dublin but exact location and opening date are yet to be confirmed, but it is roughly expected to open in mid November. Keep an eye out on our newsletter and social media pages at Facebook and twitter for updates on this.
The FCJ Team
We were unfortunate to lose our co-founder & best pal Ciaran Byrne earlier in the year. He is off to pursue another adventure, which I am sure you will all be raving about in the near future and we wish him all the luck in the world with it. He'll still be spotted around the pubs of dublin wearing a funky christmas jumper as he did demand a free jumper a year for life!
This post wasn't meant to be so long and hope you made it this far! Back to work on our website for me and Donal's off to The North Pole to get Santa's approval on our new designs :)
