I've decided that if I'm going to start doing more craft shows again, that I want to do it better this time around. I've decided I need to do some "branding" so that people can recognize my booth from one show to another. My first step was to make this sign...I had painted a scrap piece of wood to prop up on risers for a "second level" at my last pottery show, but it didn't really work as well as I thought it would. So, in the interest of reusing things I have...I printed out my name (Edwardian Script is the font) as big as I could onto scrap paper, traced it with a pen to scratch it into the wood, and went over it with a permanent marker. This has been on my to-do list for a while but I just wasn't getting around to it because I'm not that good with a paint brush. Permanent marker made the job so so much easier. I think this would work well for a market stall too, or a road side stand. Total cost: $0.00, since I had all the materials I needed.
Do any of you have some "branding" tricks for me that you are willing to share?
