New Group Project

Hello Team!

In lieu of a postcard, we have had a few team members mention creating flyers. At this time I have decided to put the postcard idea on hold and concentrate on the flyers and see how it goes.

Here is what we are going to do:
We are going to make our own flyers (business card, quarter page, half page, whatever size you want... or whatever promo material you want) then send a few copies to each other. Then when we get an orders, we will put each others promos in with our customer's orders to help promote each other.

Just communicate with one another through Etsy if you want to swap addresses and send your promo materials to each other for promoting.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and good luck.

Upcoming Projects

Hi gang,

So far we have discussed a catalog and also a promo postcard. Does anyone want to lead these projects? As said before, I know Jim was interested in the catalog. He came up with the catalog idea! I know mymy and karabu throught the catalog was a great idea. What other projects or ideas do you all have?

We have two possible projects: the catalog and the promo postcard. For the postcard, we were looking at possible printing vendors, size of postcard, and prices. Another issue was to have a mailable postcard or not. Jim and I both came up with design ideas awhile ago. Now that we have a name, we should create our look.

Ideas? Reply to this post! Thank you.

This is a test. . .

So, by "moving the conversation here" does that mean to post entries like this? If there is another way to communicate, just let me know. We also have our Yahoo group that so far no one has joined. It would be a method of more private conversation.

I love the catalog idea. Where are we at right now on any of the projects, or are we still organizing? I confess to getting a bit lost here lately - we're having bursts and stops. I'm game to help where I can - what do we need done?

Here We Are!

It would be nice if we moved all discussions on this spot instead of the Etsy forum. We need to brand ourselves and get more members participating in the group. We can also continue working on the postcard. Let us know if you have a project you want to push through and we can work to make it happen! I know Jim was thinking about doing an annual catalog that we could send out to indy friendly stores. Any other ideas? I want to make stuff happen.
