With Copper Catkin, we attend a great many markets and fairs throughout the year, and we consistently sell several hundred dollars of stock at every market, even the very quiet ones. If there are people at the market, we give them every opportunity to take home some Copper Catkin goodness, and many of them take us up on the offer.
We look around us and see that many other makers are struggling to do the same, so here are a few quick tips.
That's right, we've got a logo, a nifty little tagline, and now, business cards! As the Geordie Shore lot like to say, GET IN!
The saga of the logo
The logo has been a bit of an adventure, actually.
I came up with the 'Copper Catkin' part of the name some time ago - the contradiction appealed to me - the fluffy catkin, made of shiny metal. I chose copper as a nod to my interest in all things Steampunk, and I have loved catkins since I was a wee kitling myself. The combination plant and metal is also a quiet nod to NZ's silver fern.
