Advertisement Tips:

Keep in mind, this guidebook allows customers to remember you or even find you long after they leave market and return home.

-If you have an online shop, include your website or other contact information!

-Make sure the business name on your ad matches the name in the Saturday Market records and keep your market records current.  If you don’t have a business name use the member name on record with market.

-Include a ‘Coupon Code’ for online shoppers or a ‘mention this ad’ and receive a discount or a free gift!  Please, NO coupons.  We don’t want customers cutting up the guidebook for coupons.

-Include your booth number (reserve vendors).  If you are a nomadic vendor, mention that the information booth will know where you are on Saturdays.

-Keep your ad simple, in-line with your brand and memorable!

-Before submitting look at your completed ad at 100% to be certain the font is legible.  Try to use fonts that are easy to read. Some of the fonts used are actually not. Because it looks cool doesn’t mean it will be easily read.  Make sure the resolution at 100% is 300 dpi or higher.  Lower than that, and the ad loses clarity.  Have a friend look it over for a second opinion.
