Our latest video installment in Quest of a Con Vendor is a bit different. This time, we’re taking a look at running the business and trying to figure out our product line up to create that thing that everyone wants.
Inspired by Supernatural, THIS is where your hunt begins!
Last night, we took a few new photos of the inside of my Hunter’s Journal. Inspired by Supernatural, the journal has pages to stick all of your con momentos from Comic-Con, a Supernatural Convention or any show you go to. Take a look at my pages for some ideas on how to create your own pages. Honestly, it takes me only minutes to do this. We specifically designed these books so you can just grab some double sided tape and a Sharpie to quickly stick your stuff right on the pages! It’s like a smashbook for your con stuff 🙂 Get yours now for SDCC HERE.
Love the silver Sharpie on the inside cover
Your plan of attack! Keep track of your schedule
Stick anything you want, write notes on the pages
Have artists sign or draw in your journal
Stickers, artwork, business cards, ticket stubs can all be stuck in your journal, instead of staying in your backpack
Write down the best quotes when you’re in a panel
Protect those precious photo-ops!
You now have a place to show off those unbelievable moments
When you send your product out for review, it’s a bit nerve-racking. It’s a little bit like sending your kids off to school. You love your product and think it’s fantastic, but how will it do out there? Will the people who get it love it as much as you do?
Through a fantastic Twitter exchange, I was introduced to The Mary Sue’s Editor in Chief, Jill Pantozzi. I sent off a journal to Jill and hoped that she liked it. Yesterday the post went live and YAYAYAYYAYA! She said “The creators of Con*Quest Journal sent us one to try out, and while I haven’t been to a convention with it yet, I can highly recommend it for the avid con-goer.”
Read the full post HERE. I’m so happy and proud that one of the most respected geek culture sites has recommended our journal. It makes it even better for me that it’s a site founded on the values of smart women. As a women who was raised by a mother who owned her own small business, and as someone who has marketed toilets, cable, machine tools, and Twilight conventions, it feels awesome to see my baby fly.
It’s our first year at WonderCon and we are so frickin excited! We’ll be in booth 124 with our new Variant cover show exclusive Anaheim 2015 Con*Quest Journals!
