Tabling Tips

Exhibitors! Please check out these super-helpful tips from No Media Kings for having a successful Zine Fest. Some of them are basic, like bringing lots of change, or keeping a sales tally. Others you may not have thought of:
Have one or two lines ready to describe your stuff when someone asks ‘what’s this?’. This can be surprisingly tough but after a while you get a feel for what works and what doesn’t. For example, with one of aduki’s books, Stick This In Your Memory Hole, we mention the cultural commentary aspect of it rather than drop the P-bomb (politics); with Mini Shots it works best to open by saying it’s a new concept magazine series rather than that it’s a short story magazine.

Even if you know this stuff already, it's great to hear it in codified form.
