I admit I did some googling last night on Folksy as a brand to get a feel for it all especially as I’m a relative newbie to here and wanted to understand it better. Many people don’t know who Folksy are and it is discussed on many different forums, whether to use the other site, which everyone seems to know, or here. I explain why I chose here and then I had to think again over my reasons for that. I still prefer the ethos of Folksy but equally I want the discerning public out there to know about it and want them to visit and purchase the individually fantastic items that are for sale here. But you guys know your brand and where you want Folksy to be at in the online handmade retail arena, and I have to trust in that. I liked the David/Goliath analogy I read in an interview about the Folksy brand.
I can see how downloading a poster for print at home maybe would not be best for the brand with regards to quality control. Bumper stickers could be cool in a funny quirky way, but again tricky to handle in ensuring their use fits with the brand. Maybe quality postcards that can be left in various independent coffee shops? Or maybe a link up with Moo that for every set of business cards for Folksy users they get some promotional material to link in with that for use at fairs?
Now I’ve actually sat and thought about it all, I can see it isn’t as easy as I thought it was. :-/
