Another free label post to help you with your guest toiletry organisation – my latest obsession, I’m afraid. I’ve been obsession over the jars to put them in, what type of toothbrushes to buy (decided for bamboo, but they aren’t in these photos as they haven’t been delivered yet) and whether to buy bath robes and slippers for the guest bathroom. I know, I’m going all Martha Stewart (in a random sort of way), but can’t help myself. Anyways, hope you can find a use for these!
For all clients with a payment gateway website: please be informed there are new rules for eCommerce merchants regarding the CVN/CVV2, which is the 3 or 4-digit security number on a credit card.
On the 1st of April, Visa and MasterCard mandated that all online transactions must include the CVN/CVV2 from the credit card being used. By now your merchant bank should have been in contact to advise you of the required changes. This mandate is now being enforced, and non-compliant merchants are being contacted to ensure their website is updated to capture this field.
If you are currently processing transactions without capturing the CVN/CVV2, you need to update your website to make this a required field on your payment form. In the near future, transactions processed without CVN/CVV2 data will be rejected by the gateway.
What you need to do
Your “Credit card processing” field under Site Manager – Web Forms should already include the CCV field. If that is not the case please get in touch as soon as possible to allow us to fix this for you.
On May 2nd, the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog has released an update to their HTML & CSS coding guidelines doc. Several notable recommendations below.
I always like to brag about my clients, so here’s April’s crop. It’s so lovely to see lovely people and products getting the attention they deserve.
Produced by legendary Chuck Jones, this little film about the love between a freedom-loving (female) dot and a dependable (male) line is a treasure of sprightly language and delightful visuals.
It is enchanting, charming, witty – everything one could expect from a master of animation who was responsible for creating such cultural icons as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner. And incidentally, The Dot and the Line won the 1965 Oscar for Best Animated Short movie. Read more
Just a bit of random fun, that proves drawing is the answer to everything, even to understanding mathematics (Pythagora and the Greeks knew that).
Gorgeous bit of type history discovered on Imprint: In 1937, on the 100th anniversary of the founding of The Bauer Type Foundry in 1837, the firm issued “Bauer’s Family Tree of Printing Types.” It’s a whimsical, slightly inaccurate and completely gorgeous work of art, a rare treat for any typography aficionado. I just love how you can visually follow the history of type.
