After pretty much everything that could possibly go wrong had (printer out of ink, can't find images, hot glued fingers together, you name it!) I have FINALLY finished and packaged up my promos for the Craftster Promo Item and Business Card Swap 2. I organized the swap this go around which has been quite a bit of work, but fun as well. With the organizing, general running of my Etsy shop, and participating in the Historical Figures Swap, I started to worry that I wouldn't be able to finish all of my promo items in time . . . and honestly, the sending of the promos really is the entire point with this swap. The more promos I send the more chances I make to get my name into a potential buyer's hands . . .so these not only had to be good, there had to be a lot of them! (Did I mention, they're handmade?).
In the end, I put 8 promos, 2 solo business cards, 3 Meho Plaza EPs and 10 Division Day fliers in each package (I figured if I'm already sending on behalf of Mixtape, I might as well get some music into a few crafty hands while I'm at it!). Did I mention there are 14 packages? Yep. Thats right. 112 fully handmade promo items (not to mention the 25 or so I kept to include with my own orders and to give out to friends).
