PinExt How To Prepare For A Craft Fair

One thing you can do when you start a greeting card business is to market your business as well as sell greeting cards is to have a booth at craft shows and fairs.

Craft fairs are a fun and popular way for people to view your greeting cards and it is a creative outlet for you to use in marketing your product.

The shows often have a variety of booth sizes and types, which you can use to create an “atmosphere” for your potential customers. You can use this to create an environment that is similar to your physical storefront, create displays that follow seasonal themes, or create displays that simply show off your work.

Craft Fair Preparation

The following is a list of tasks you should do when preparing for a craft fair. Remember that this is a general list.

3. Prepare samples of your greeting cards you wish to take (e.g., several portfolios where the greeting cards are protected, but can be viewed).

4. Prepare a list of the price of each greeting card.

5. Prepare any catalogs, brochures, and other marketing materials for those customers who just want to take information home.

h. At least a certain number of greeting cards to sell and a certain number of displays in the portfolios and display boards.

i. At least a certain number of customer greeting cards displayed in the portfolios and on the display boards.

j. Forms that customers can use to create a wish list of cards they want from what is displayed or from what they want to create.

k. Table cloth and table signage for the size table(s) you will have at your booth.

l. Cell phone number of the craft fair organizer during the show.

Before you have your tasks list started, you must verify the booth details with the craft show organizer. This is usually an iterative or ongoing process as the craft show event will usually have frequent changes before the event occurs.

When working with the craft fair organizer, make sure you at least have the following items defined:
