To Market, To Market

Marketing again! I got the printed display boards today and solved the “envelope” puzzle for the business cards. But first I had to deal with the grommets…

I had asked for grommets in the top corners of the display boards so when I tacked them up on the wall they wouldn’t be inclined to rip off easily. I got bigger grommets than I had counted on–so big that I couldn’t use the ordinary size push-pins I had planned on. Had to get super-giant push-pins. Which created a new puzzle. How to keep people from “borrowing” them to put up their own stuff and leaving my stuff to fend for itself. Krazy Glue to the rescue. The push-pins are now cemented to the grommets. They actually look pretty good! Now if somebody wants one of my push-pins, they’ll have to fight for it.

I found some plastic badge-holders, the kind of thing you might put a key-card in, which when cut down a little bit and stuck to the board work pretty well to hold the business cards. They’re clear, so the face of the card shows through and the logo matches the logo on the display board. I met some friends while walking back from parking my truck today, and showed them what I was up to. They commented on how professional my marketing materials looked. I sure hope creativity and good design actually help sell stuff, because I’ve devoted an enormous amount of time and effort toward it. I guess we’ll find out in the next couple of months…
