Making the business official!

As the title states, Eve and I are finally taking the necessary steps in order to make our business all official and such. The Berkeley Pagan Festival is coming up, and in order to participate we need a resale license (which means we're going to have to start charging tax for all purchases made in CA).

In order to get a resale license, we have to register our business name AND register our partnership. The resale license is free, but the latter two are pricey. It needs to be done, though. And, while we're at it, we might as well get our business name trademarked.

We're looking into getting a membership to TechShop in San Francisco as well, which is hugely exciting! They have a lot of machinery at their disposal, which would be very handy, considering we're still working out of a small bedroom. In particular, we're looking at utilizing their laser cutters, which would be used to cut out all the detail crazy masks and most of the 8oz works. It would spare our hands the long term pain, and make production a lot quicker. I'm pretty excited about that.
