I’ve blogged recently about promo items I’ve been creating through Vistaprint.com?(note: that is an affiliate link for me–please only use this link if I’m giving you helpful information!), and I thought I’d share how I made the luggage tags that I’ll be including in the swag bag for my table mates at the Children Literature Network Books for Breakfast event this Saturday. I don’t really do crafts, but it was fun making these. They’d be too time-consuming and expensive to do for huge crowds (like I ever have huge crowds), but they work well, I think, for a little trinket.
(I’d really like to come up with some other paper-based items that are actually useful that I could figure out how to re-create as promo items. I love the luggage tag Sylvia Vardell made for me, and every time I travel and see that tag, I’m reminded of how much fun the Texas Library Association Poetry Roundup was and what a great poetry advocate she is. So how cool if you can make things for people that remind them of you and your books, right?)
