Title: Awesome sites for ordering swag for your books
Post by: Schriscoe on July 12, 2017, 04:32 AM
With the upcoming release of my third PB I've been doing lots and lots of online shopping for book swag and have found some really great ones. So, I wanted to share them here.

(Disclaimer: I am not promoting any of these sites and have no affiliation with them. I simply wanted to share what I've found. I hope others will chime in with awesome sites they've found as well.)

Here's two sites where you can order buttons with your book cover on them. I've ordered from both and they are exactly the same quality but Pure Buttons is quite a bit cheaper.

Vista Print is an awesome place to order bookmarks, posters, cards, and all sorts of things.
I recently ordered the 2.5 x 2.5 business cards at a great price but used them as a promo tool for handing out my upcoming book cover with the release date, also stating that it's available for preorder now, and on back I included my website. They turned out fantastic!

Logo Sportswear was the place I ordered my custom RACE CAR DREAMS tshirts last year and while expensive they are super cool! One key is, make sure you order all that you want in one order because the more you order the cheaper you get them. Plus, the people were super nice to work with.

Sticker apps is a great place to order all sorts of stickers. They come in a variety of shapes, too!

And of course, we all know you can find anything you could ever imagine on Amazon.

I'll come back and add more as I discover them. In the mean time, I'd love to hear of other sites where you all have found awesome swag.

Oh! And before you finalize your order, google search for promo codes. Most of these sites have them and they can save you lots of money.

Tattoofun.com has excellent customer service.  I've had custom temporary tattoos made there three times.

So happy everyone is finding the sites useful.

Here's a couple more:

Quality logo products has some VERY cool stuff on their site that can be printed with your title and name, message, and some items I believe can accommodate your cover. Lori Alexander shared this site with me. She had some super cute stress balls in the shape of rocks made for BACKHOE JOE and I just love mine. So, as I was digging on this site, I discovered lots of cute stress balls including an orange cone! Totally having that made. They are expensive and you have to order a certain number to get them, so I plan to give mine out to those who buy the book at events.

Zazzle has some great book plates. They really pretty, too. They have lots of other things, too. But I've only ordered book plates so far.

You're welcome, everyone!!

I came across this site and wanted to share as well. Everyone loves cookies, right? And this site has tons of cookie cutters so hopefully something on it will match your book. I plan to use it to create a homemade ornament that kids can paint for my craft. Well, that is if it turns out right. If not, cookies it is!

Okie dokie, so who knows where is the CHEAPEST :) place to print flyers. I plan to print some card stock flyers to hand out personally through vistaprint, but for the ones that I want to casually *cough* stuff under car windshield wiper blades, I want to go as cheap as possible since I realize many of these will just be tossed before they are even looked at.

SO I am ALL ears. Anyone know where to get something like 1,000 for under $50???  :thanx
