  • Not allowed large banner....

    The craft fair im going to soon doesnt allow banners on the wall at all. They also say that you need to have a floor length cloth on the front. I was going to put my banner on the front. But id like to use something smaller.

    So what other way can i show my business name? I was thinking of ordering some smaller A3 sized poster things to put in a frame and sit on the table but i think thatl look wierd.

    I could make you a nice wooden sign with your business name on and a nice design too, thats what i have with a stand to help prop it up, and it seems to do the trick

    It could be placed on the table with your items around it, and would look a lot more presentable and natutral than some A3 sheets.
    Just an idea.

    Hope all is well by the way,

      I would put it everywhere you can to promote yourself. I have a banner that I either stick up behind the stall or if that's not allowed I hang it from the front (although people can't see that if others are browsing at your table)
      I also have a number of laminated signs of varying sizes from A3 to tiny that I stick all over the place mainly on my display stands etc with my name/website address what I do etc.
      As an eye-catching alternative I have a small wooden cow that another stall holder gave me with a little sign on his back if I have enough space.
      A friend of mine has her trading name painted onto a sqaure art canvas that sits on a easel on her stall which looks very classy!

        I have a tablecloth with my name on the front (I used fusible webbing to stick fabric letters on) and a pile of business cards that I hand out to everyone and anyone who comes within 4 feet of me

          How about fabric paint to paint the name onto a pin-on chunk of material? A pillowcase would probably be ideal - I've made banners from sheets that way. (Here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/tannison/172599606)

          Or print the name at A4 height onto as many sheets as necessary, and stick them together. I laminated my version of that, but it's fiddly, as you have to cut the pouches up...

          I have a friend who machine-embroiders lovely velvet hangings like this :

          (her site is called Merry Meet : http://www.merrymeet.uk.com/) but they're a tad pricey, and take a while to make.

            I have the same thing and it really stands out.

              Hi

              I use my logo with Handmade Jewellery under it on A4 laminated signs which I place at each end of the table I also have a A5 which I stand on the table but prominent. and yes business cards / handouts as many as I can give out. also put in the bags with each purchase.

              But I'm finding that it takes time to be known. but keep at it.

              I also make smaller (half the size of A5, dont know what size it is) lists of fairs Im attending as some peeps just may come back to see me.

              Sorry waffled on a bit there.
