Flash Sale -- It's a 4th of July Sale-Bration! June 30 2016
Join us this weekend as we celebrate the birth of our nation! And, since we're always up for a party, we've pulled together a list of items that we felt captured the feeling of the 4th.
We recommend a Waterman ukulele to play all of the fun music that brings people together, wearing one of our red, white, or blue uke shirts for a flare of patriotism, slathering on the sunscreen (because we don't want your face as red as that flag), and grabbing a bag to lug all of your gear around. Plus, you probably need to bake some all-American chocolate chip cookies, so we tossed our cookie cutter in there, too.
Whatever item you decide suits your party, make sure to check out the rest of our Flash Sale picks in our July 4th Sale-Bration collection because, for this weekend only, every item in this collection is 15% off! Just use the code 4THFLASH upon checkout to redeem your discount.

Imagine it: there you are, standing in the kitchen, making a big beautiful salad and you grab the hardboiled egg but, gasp! No way to cut it into beautiful even slices. What do you do? Instead of taking up precious time to carefully cut your egg with a knife (time that you could use for enjoying your meal), grab the new handy-dandy egg slicer! Because, not only is it useful, but it's totally shaped like a ukulele.
Measuring approximately 9" long and 3.5" wide, this little uke will help make your kitchen much more musically inclined. And, whenever you're in a slicing pinch, grab your ukulele and go!

Help Us Create A New Ukulele T-shirt! September 22 2015
Want to help us create a new Ukulele T-shirt?
Here’s how you can help: grab a marker and piece of paper and doodle a uke. We’ll use your doodle in the design for a new Ukulele t-shirt. Once you’ve doodled your ukulele, we’ll need you to photograph it (or scan it) and send it here. We’ll take it from there!
1. Lay your doodle down on a table near a window or under a bright light
2. Stand above the table so the camera is looking straight down at the drawing (be sure not to block your light)
3. E-mail the largest file size possible here.
P.S. if you have a scanner, use it! Scanning is the best way to digitize doodles. Let us know if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing your doodles!

Now Available: Beautiful Gifts from Kooky Uke! June 24 2014
"I believe if more people played music (especially the ukulele) there would be peace on earth," she says, "Spread the uke love." We here at Ukulele are certainly in love with her greeting cards! Get a behind the scenes look at how they're made:
I draw my designs, cut my linocuts, turn them into screen prints, and print it all by hand.
Each color of the card is one pass of printing. I let it dry and then go over it with the next color.
I feel that each card or t-shirt is like a piece of artwork and that it makes your note or your expression of love for the ukulele extra special.
I am also interested in doing my part to protect the planet and have a low impact on the environment. Whenever possible, I use eco-friendly materials, recycled paper and even pedal my products to the local post office.
Order yours today! (Hint: you can also buy them in a set of four or eight)
