New Rack Cards for the 2009 Shows...

I am so excited about the booths I will have this year at Pug Parties in San Diego, Seattle and Denver!

One of the biggest logistical challenges I have is taking EVERYTHING I have and displaying it without people (and myself) getting overwhelmed from the choices.

I find that most of the people want to shop a little more quietly and leisurely than ordering everything at once at the show with their puggies pulling them in 3 different directions.

It is also hard for me to pack and or ship all of the big or heavier items these days so I decided to make these cool rack cards on VistaPrint. They are larger than a postcard at 4" x 8" and even have information on the back for no extra charge. I make all of my postcards, business cards, notepads and raffle cards on VistaPrint. Their quality, service and prices are just amazing!

Here is what I created... (click on the pictures to make them bigger.)

I think it will be an effective way to show people what else they will find and where to find me when they get home.

Plus I have a little picture of Emmitt on there so he can come to the show with me! How Fun! :)

Great idea, Melissy...especially with Emmitt's picture on it. Who could resist!?

Pearl said...

I think that was a great idea, Melissa! Sometimes simplifying things like that is really helpful! I can't WAIT to hear about how much fun you have at these shows. I sure wish one was closer to Pearl and I!

This is very cool.

That's a perfect idea. It's so hard to carry items around if you purchase them on the spot. You'll get a lot of after the fact sales with these.

Love it! And I love Vista Print too. They have great deals.

After seeing this post today I'm thinking Pearl & Daisy are going to be getting a new bed this year...

Very nice!

Lisa M Griffin said...

Wonderful idea and a perfect way to showcase your art. Having something that a potential customer can walk away with is very marketing savy! Hope all goes well with your upcoming shows. =)

Rachel said...

That is a great idea - I hope all your shows go great. I wish I could come to them all! When are they ever gonna finish that teleportation machine, anyways??
