Surtex Recap

We did it!

Last week we went to set up my first ever trade show booth at Surtex. I have to say, the booth looked pretty awesome, thanks to my very talented industrial designer husband, Chad. I definitely could not have done this alone! Here are some photos of set-up, and then final booth.

Chad measuring as we got started. Chad did a LOT of measuring for this booth.

All painted and ready for my art! Chad ordered my logo, laser cut out of birch for the booth. Best. Gift. Ever.

Ta-da! Easy as cake! 😉

Sneak peek at my fabulous new line of stationery, available through Anna Griffin’s licensing division, Blend.

More stationery, plus the bookmark I was giving away. Turns out, people still read paper books!

I want to send a special thanks to Chad for making this booth possible. I really do think it required his exact skill set to execute this booth.

I also want to thank Anna Griffin, and all the folks at Anna Griffin, Inc. and Blend for the beautiful work they have done at Quilt Market and National Stationery Show.

I also want to say that I could not have asked for nicer Surtex neighbors, Frank Sturges Reps, Magnet RepsDSW licensing, and Sophie Jordan Design. Frank in particular, gave us a much needed laugh during set-up, and encouragement throughout the show. Plus, his artists are really great. It was a pleasure to sit across from their work every day while we were there.

  3. What are the walls – and how did you attach them?

  4. Hi Anna! it was great to meet you at the show. I hope you didn’t have to stay too long Tues : ) Just want to let you know you are on my list of artists who make me green with envy. But I can’t hate you because you are so darn nice : ) Much success to you ( I have not doubt you will )
