So what is a dicepouch, and where did it all start?
Back in 2003, after a long and unrewarding hunt, we were moaning over how difficult it could be to find a unique, custom made, high-quality embroidered dice bag. Unable to find anyone who offered the product we wanted, we decided to make it ourselves.
At dicepouch, we believe the place you keep your dice should be a reflection of your own unique style. With dicepouch, gamers can now design dice bags to perfectly suit their unique styles and tastes. These are the bags we couldn't find; the bags we were wanting for our own dice.
Have you seen a dicepouch already? It's possible. They have been spotted as prizes at Clash for the Cure in Waco, and AuroraCon in Alaska, and regularly journey from the heart of Texas to gamers all over the world. One fateful halloween, a few of our flat pouches joined the pirate crew of the infamous "Bloody Bun" at the Sluggy Freelance Slugween 2004 party, but ended up going home with the guests instead of plundering the bar. A veritable horde of their evil doppelgangers soon followed, but failed to take over the Nifty. Undeterred, they came back as zombie BunBun bags at Slugween 2005 but were, once again, swiftly divided and conquered.
Then there are the well-dressed dicepouches spotted at weddings and bachelor parties, usually hanging out as groomsmen or bridesmaid gifts, though some lucky bags have served as wrist-purses for the bride herself! And some santa pouches shake off their ho-ho-ho name, preferring to be known as a "belt pouch" or "coin purse" at renaissance festivals.
So with well over 800 custom and premade bags released into the wild, that great looking bag you were admiring (or coveting,) from across the table may have come from us! Now you can have one, too.
Did you know you can keep up with us on Facebook? We share news about our products and instant gratification store, updates about machine breakdowns and conventions, and even the occasional link. Don't worry tho; we won't spam your feed with daily updates. We want to be friends, not stalkers! same goes for Twitter: We're @dicepouch, not in your face.
Do you have a specific embroidery design or an image in mind that will make your dicepouch exactly right, but don't see it in our gallery of embroidery patterns? Send TheBagLady an e-mail! We have, or can find, the perfect image for your bag!
