Bookmarks are one of my most-popular items. With a low-cost-per-item price point and a long shelf life (people tend to hang onto bookmarks), bookmarks are a great way get your message out to others. Scroll down for promotional ideas, gift ideas, and other uses!
- Available in three sizes (because--like leggings--one size definitely does not fit all).
- Small: 1.5” x 7”
- Medium (most popular): 2” x 8”
- Large: 2.75” x 8.5”
- 2-sided, full color
- Printed on 14pt stock (an industry standard). Not too heavy; not too light. This is the same stock used for a lot of postcards.
- Optional UV gloss flood coating included at no additional charge, on one or both sides of your bookmark. This is the magic stuff that makes your bookmark more durable and gives it shine!
Also consider: Do you want to sign your bookmarks? You might want to leave one side of your bookmark uncoated . . . or choose to sign with a Sharpie-type pen. RoseArt (you can find these at WalMart) makes permanent markers in metallic ink, which looks really nice on a dark/black bookmark also.
Promotional ideas for authors:
Bookmarks are perfect for letting the world know about your upcoming release! Drop a stack off at your favorite bookstores, include in pre-release mailings . . . and don't forget to give a handful to Proud Aunt Beatrice to hand out to her friends at bridge club.
Uses for bookmarks:
- Fan give-away item
- put out on signing tables
- offer on your website as a fan give-away item.
- Bookstores (drop off a stack)
- Libraries (ditto)
- Workshops & school presentations
- Advance promotion (series books)
- Backlist (put new life into sales of your prior titles!)
- Promote with a friend—each take a side. A great way to get a reader to try out a new author.
If you have space/time, sign your bookmark with a Sharpie-type pen to add treasure value. Metallic-ink Sharpies (or RoseArt) pens work great on dark surfaces.
If offering by mail: Asking for an SASE helps defray costs and is a great way to build out your mailing list. Be sure and ask for a size large enough to fit your bookmark. All bookmarks will fit in a #10 envelope (legal/business size 4 1/8” x 9 ½”); a standard #6 envelope ( 3 5/8” x 6 ½” is too short.). A first class stamp will be enough to ship your bookmark and add a personal note (to U.S. addresses).
Fun bookmark ideas for non-author uses:
Bookmarks are also a great give-away item for other events. Some examples:
- Businesses/Clubs/Churches: hours of operation, upcoming meeting times
- Events: Theaters, Family Fun Day, Community (e.g. Fire Department Open House, with a “safety checklist” on the back).
- Informational/protective: Librarians (“How to select a book that’s right for you”); Teachers: Classroom “motto”; math facts, etc.
- Assemblies: an inexpensive give-away for students/community
- Fund raiser “Thank you item” (a nice quote or something useful: a recipe, a meat-temperature cooking chart, etc).
