I’m putting together a workshop about promo adequately titled EYE-CATCHING PROMO–Cheap, Unique and Utterly Chic. If you’re like me, you’re on a really restrictive budget and sometimes have to rely on your own creativity to get your name out there. Because of said creativity, I am now known as the “Shrinky Dink Chick”. I made bookmarks with Shrinky Dink charm adorned tassels. It was fun and a heck of a lot cheaper than buying actual charms. Trust me, I priced charms. Some came up to almost $2.00 per charm. Uh, sorry… don’t think so. Then, while Googling promo ideas, I discovered a forum about Shrinky Dinks. A guy had used printable shrink paper to make key-chains. I then realized that printing and baking my own Shrinky Dink key-chains was tons cheaper than buying them from a promo item website.
Anyway, I digress. What I’d like is other authors to showcase their own cheap/unique/interesting promo items (including romance trading cards). I’m looking for 20-40 pieces of swag (or more, if you’re willing to part with them).
If interested, please contact me using the contact form here with “PROMO WORKSHOP” as the subject, and I will provide you the address to send the items.
Thanks so much!
