It's a little something that has a minimal cost involved so far as the metal goes, but it does take time to make a significant batch of them.
Recently, someone suggested to me that maybe I should think about doing something like promotional pens or customized mugs when I add teas in the apothecary section of the shop. The idea of doing mugs sounds somewhat appealing to me but I think it's a bit out of my price range right now. Not only is there a cost for the item, but most places have some kind of logo charge and set up fee.
A lot of small, crafty businesses either make their own promotional items (as I have or like some graphic artists who put their artwork on magnets and such) or they buy stickers, scratch offs, etc. from other small, crafty businesses. What are some things that you do to help promote your shop? Do you have ideas for fun little promotional products that customers can walk away with that will make them remember you when they get home from the fair or remember to reorder from your shop? Let's share some ideas!
