Great post I enjoyed reading it! I also got some valuable information. I just completed my first expo the past weekend and could have used these pointers.

Wow, that was incredibly informative. We launched out designs on CafePress and Zazzle two years ago and have now taken them down so we can sell wholesale ourselves and meet our customers face-to-face. We look forward to attending events, festivals, shows, etc. and your post's information will undoubtedly prove to be invaluable!

Thank you so much for your time, effort, energy and knowledge!

Rush, I too read your novella!!
I follow your advice and your outlook on which shows have the potential of being successful.
what I am looking for are do it yourself directions on making a hanging t shirt display rack out of pvc. I saw the ones I can purchase for $30.00 but thought someone might have figured out the technique and is willing to share the plans. thanks again Jenny

I really appreciate this post. I do a lot of t shirt printing, mainly at family reunions. Pretty much created my own market and diligent seek them out. My area alone gets around 400-600 reunions every summer. I'd like to branch out to begin printing at other events in the fall and winter season. Thanks for the tips.

Great opening post, but one question, anyone have any problems with theft and if so how to counter it ? (When I start at a market I will probably be on my own.)
