Getting Ready for Craft Show Season

Craft show season is almost here, and we’ve been very busy with production. We have some great new designs coming soon. In the picture on the left, I’m hemming one of our new dress designs, which still has yet to be named.  So to keep things moving right along, I’ve given myself a working schedule, lunch breaks and everything.  I’m the type of person who works well within a schedule, and it doesn’t make crafting/sewing/designing any less fun.
Our new clothing tags came in, and they look pretty spiffy.  Designing the little things like promos, business cards and clothing tags is one of my favorite parts of this business.  This year I decided not to print and cut them all out myself, that took way too long last year.  I ordered them through kittycrossbones.etsy.com. She has a wide variety of promo items, including stickers, buttons, scratch-offs, and mirrors. The prices are pretty reasonable as well, and buying indie is also a plus!

Review: Business Cards from Vista Print






















We just received our new business cards from www.vistaprint.com and I am really happy with their service. I went with 250 Premium business cards, and the grand total was $19.69. They arrived quickly, even thought I chose the cheapest shipping option (21 days! but arrived way sooner). The colors were also accurate. I have heard some people say that the colors on their orders were off, but I think if your design is CMYK compatible, you should be fine. For more info on CMYK colors, check out www.printingforless.com/rgb-cmyk.html. Vista Print offers free business cards, but you have to use one of their images, and the paper quality is not as good. I uploaded my own image, but there is a fee for that. They also sent me a bunch of offers for free postcard printing, brochure printing, and 80% off my next order of business cards, so I will definitely be taking advantage of those. Vista Print has good prices and good service, so I will definitely use them in the future.
