Signazon Review and #Giveaway

Recently I've been thinking of having a booth at a local craft fair with some of the items I've been making in my spare time...homemade soaps, tooth fairy pillows, gnomes, painted birdhouse gourds, and pencil cases.  I've never been a vendor at a craft fair before, and the whole idea of this foreign experience makes me a little anxious.  I want my booth to be as professional as possible, so I decided to order a trade show banner from Signazon.  Their banners are quite affordable, starting at $29.88. 

I never designed anything like this before, but I knew I wanted to keep it simple.  I used a photo I took of Pierce's hands when we were hiking late last Spring.  I did the lettering in a forest green, to match my business cards.  I will probably use either a dark brown or a forest green tablecloth.  When the sign arrived in the mail, I LOVED it.  It's much larger than I expected, and is made from a durable vinyl.  It has grommets in each corner which can be used to hang the sign in a variety of places.  And it rolls up small for easy storage and carrying. 


Do you know what Pierce said, when I showed it to him, and told him those were his hands in the picture?  He said, "But Mom?  I don't remember my hands ever being THAT big!" 

In addition to a large variety of signs, Signazon carries car magnets and window graphics.  I found their design process very easy to maneuver - even at my beginner skill level.   I am going to feel so much more confident going into the craft fair, knowing that my table is going to look just as nice if not better than the booths to each side of it!  Wish me luck, readers, as I hope to earn enough money to fund this year's Christmas shopping. 

Signazon is generously offering one lucky reader a $50 gift code to use on an item of the winner's choice on their website.  Click on the Rafflecopter below to enter.

That is a really good looking sign, most of what I see have just block letters on a plain back ground.

Good luck in this new venture Lisa -- love the design.

Know what I like about their products...you would not just have to be a business to get one. Can't you see tailgaters at a football game loving a banner with the family name and team on it? Or how about a car magnet to congradulate a new graduate or retiree? Possibilites are endless.
Your banner is so excellent. I have a dark green tablecloth if you need it. I also have some great tree fabric that would be cool with your pinecone banner.

that is a super sign and will draw customers. A stall will be great, and first time jitters are good, I think this will be a fun adventure. Kids do say the cutest things.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Your sign looks wonderful. I love the pine cone picture you used for the sign.

I love the banner and that is so cute about Pierce's BIG hands! About 20 years ago, I did craft shows and John had a banner made for me. I found that the banner allowed returning customers to "find" me easier. I'd love to see your gourd birdhouses.

Buttons said...

Oh Lisa you will not need any luck that awesome sign(with those big hands):) will bring them in and your crafts will captivate all who see. B

I like the For-Sale-by-Owner real estate sign.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

That's a great banner, and Pierce's big hands :-) will help draw in customers, I'm sure. Love the photo of Reid and Cort with the banner, too.

Good luck with your venture. You make such creative things, I know you'll be successful.

Let me know when you do a craft fair anywhere near my area--would love to come by!

I like their Store Window Decals. I could see my husband using something like that for an art show.

I love that Pierce said that about his hands. LOL

Sharon Wagner said...

Good luck with the signage. I like it. Bigger is better.

Cool. Just have a sec. I will have to come back to enter.

Just wanted to thank you for your nice compliments on my post on Monday. I just was going over my comments because that day was a zoo around here.

Nice to hear from you. (♥)

Ginny said...

The picture of the sign with the boys holding it, it really shows how beautiful it is!! You really did an excellent job!! NOW, after you have decided what to put in the show, how about a post showing all of them? When is it? The best part abut this post is Pierce's quote!!!

warren said...

Good looking sign. I have a pic of my daughter's hands holding raspberries and it has to be on of my all-time favorite pics ever!

Maggid said...

That is going to be a great sign for your table. Should bring you lots of customers.

A Quiet Corner said...

It is a great sign, Baby Girl and with those hands out there, who would pass it up?!!!...:)JP

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

I screwed up my entering the Giveaway. I didn't get the URL on Twitter and once you don't you can't get it on a second chance. I am all about second chances. ♥

Megan Parsons said...

I love the automotive banners!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I love the idea that each product such as the signs and window clings can be personalized in every detail. Just so your sign is completely different than my sign.

cassandra said...

i love the quality and the variety of things that they have to select from!

dawnmonroe83 said...

I like that they offer free product samples. I like the car magnets because when you need a family car you just take off the sign.

Crystal Rose said...

I like that the envelopes pop without being too distracting (considering the postal workers DO need to read them.)

Natasha JaysonsMommy said...
