Product Branding......

I did my first two day show this past weekend and was a little nervous, shows take a lot out of a person. This was also my first out door event...whew....anyway, since this was a bit bigger than I was used to I wanted to make sure I was well branded. So I ordered the two table runners and bags from one of my suppliers, Rich Jacobson, Added Incentives,www.addedincentives.com ...of the fabulous design by Arina from Infused Design, http://www.etsy.com/shop/infuseddesigns?ref=ss_profile. Well, I gotta tell you - coming and going I heard my name...two people took pictures of the table runner, one was part of the show and the other was a passerby....Jen from TheDecalGal, http://www.etsy.com/people/TheDecalGal, made my car decal..... I had Janet Anderson,http://www.etsy.com/people/JanetAndersonArt?ref=ls_profile, make me some thank you cards.... Melissa from MissMissaCrafts,http://www.etsy.com/shop/MissMissaHandcrafts?ref=ss_profile, made me a custom half apron (okay so that isnt branding, but it's new, she made it for me for my shows and I wanted to give her a shout out....he he he). On Sunday, my car battery died because I was listening to the game, so the event coordinators had "Miss. LaVergne" "help" me....complete with pictures....I had them take a card in case it makes it to the news paper (haven't seen it yet).....all that to say I think the branding was well worth the money spent.

  2. Cindy Did It! You've done a great job with branding! Love the table runners. And the bags...Awesome! I'm really gonna have to talk with MissMissa about those aprons. It looks fabulous. =)
    The decal is nice too. Now whenever you're stopped at a really long red light...Just think - they're lookin' at my decal!
    Janet did a wonderful job with the thank you cards.
    You'll have to give an update on the local news...Hope you did well at the shows and had fun!

  16. A professionally crafted logo bmp is one of the greatest blessings for a company; whether it is big or small. It gives them an identity of their own and makes them different from others.
