Topic tags/keywords: resource tip

Booth too small to show everything you make? Unless you want to carry a small TV and laptop, here is a possible solution. Use a digital photo frame to scroll through photos of your work.

The other item is for tags. I use cards with business name and phone number and laminate them. then I can write on them with a Sharpie. Finger polish remover wipes the Sharpie off if you need to change it.

Dry erase marker would wipe off with a paper towel, LOL.

Dry erase will wipe off with your finger too. But the sharpie is “almost ” permenant so if you want to give it to the customer, whatever you write will stay

By the way, That electronic picture frame is a good idea Monte!

Joe, that’s why I use Sharpie. Everything wipes it off.

plus… and a big plus… if the frame runs on batteries, you don’t have to pay the sky-high electrical charge in your booth!

Monte, I can’t believe I missed this post from you. The picture frame is an awesome idea. My wife is making a number of custom items and this would be a great way to display some sample ideas. Thanks.

Great idea Monte! A woodworker I know has her lap top set up at shows with a video of her doing turning. It is very popular. It’s way beyond me, but I think it’s a good idea.
