PROMO POSTCARD Opportunity for Illustrators!

ALL CAROLINAS ILLUSTRATORS (members current as of conference dates in September) are invited to submit a packet of 20 promo postcards. One card from each illustrator participating will be added to a gift packet for each member of the visiting conference faculty.

THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU, WHETHER OR NOT YOU PLAN TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE.

Guidelines are simple: postcards must be no larger than 5" x 7" and of mailable weight. You need not have the cards professionally printed but we want to put our best foot forward and reserve the right to exclude any cards that are not of professional quality.

Cards must be mailed to me in time to ARRIVE by September 5.

I will send you a confirmation email when your postcards arrive.

Address to:

Bonnie Adamson

PO Box 25276

Greenville, SC 29616

The packets will already be made up and delivered to faculty by check-in, so please do not bring yours with you to the conference and expect to be included. (You are encouraged, however, to bring extras to display alongside your portfolio during the conference if you wish.)

Need tips on how to choose an image for a promo postcard?

One important tip: Make sure your contact info (web url) is ON THE FRONT, or main image side of the card. Art directors love to post sample cards on bulletin boards for inspiration–you don't want anyone having to turn yours over to find out whose image is so inspiring! If you choose, you may also print on the reverse, but remember the main impact will be Side A.
