I know, I know… MORE talk about Renegade Craft Fair?!?! Well, this is the life when you are a designer that does shows. Prepping for a big show like Renegade takes months of planning and creating. Here is just a little peek behind the scenes.
Making Cupster magnets. We haven’t sold magnets in years. The request for magnets is one we ignore a lot. It has been so long since we made them I forgot why we stopped… until I started making them. Those Cupsters without a magnet are not just waiting to be finished, they are acting as spacers to keep the magnets from trying to connect with each other. You think just because you glued them down you don’t need to worry about magnetism… well, that’s sorta true, AFTER they’ve dried. There’s also the matter of transporting. Things get a little chaotic when magnets are involved. Josh has been given notice that if we are going to offer magnets in the future it will not be this kind, or he will be the one making them.
This batch of stickers are going to be FREE! That’s right! Free. The stickers we normally sell are laminated, waterproof vinyl stickers. They are made to handle being on your car, scooter, or bike and last for years, taking the sun like a champ. These stickers are not laminated, and will probably fade within a year if exposed to the sun constantly. I’ve been wanting to give out free stickers for a long time. This year we finally have access to equipment to make them and not go bankrupt. I am so excited to give these freebies out.
That’s all for now, I have to get back to prepping. I’ll have a D.I.Y. coming soon for an element we are going to have in the booth that I am really excited about. If you are in Austin, TX this weekend stop by our booth (#59). We’ll have free stickers and smiles!
