The FAR-West Tote Bag is a great way to get your name, CD, showcase schedule, smiling face, logo or any other promotional items out to your fellow folkies. You can sign up during the online registration process.
Tote Bag Sponsor: DEADLINE August 31
For the incredibly low price of only $110 you can be a Tote Bag sponsor. You get your name or logo imprinted onto the Tote Bag as well as an item inserted. Please send your logo or artwork you wish to have printed on the Tote Bag to <julie_at_russandjulie.com> (Substitute @ for _at_) Preferred format is Adobe Illustrator eps, but will accept Adobe Photoshop.tiff. All Illustrator text needs to be saved to outlines, please. The deadline for submitting artwork for Tote Bag Sponsors is August 31.
Tote Bag Item Insert: This is for anyone who would like to include an item to be stuffed into the Tote Bags for only $65. The items can be anything you wish from 1-sheet flyers to CD's to promotional items.
To participate, you must provide 300 items (that's our current best guess - you will be notified if this number changes). Items can be shipped, at your cost, to a designated location at the Warner Center Marriott, arriving between Monday, October 8 and Wednesday, October 10. Location information will be provided to people choosing tote bag inserts later in the summer. You can also bring any last minute items to the Warner Center Marriott by 2:30 pm on Thursday, Oct 11th (before the Tote Bag Stuffing Party) and pay by check made out to FAR-West at that time. If you have questions, email Totebag Coordinator, Jen Hajj, jenhajj_at_yahoo.com.
If you've already registered and wish to add an insert, go back to FAR-West.org and click on the registration link again. Log in and click on "Already Registered", go to "Finalize" and you will reach the Opportunities page, where you can select the items you want and pay.
You can use the Donate button below after registration has closed to pay. (Please do not use the Donate Link below until after registration has closed so that your insert will be correctly credited.)
As you finish making your donation, there is a place to specify where you want your money to go. The line says "Add special instructions to the seller" and it has a box where you can indicate the purpose (Tote Bag Insert).
