I need the perfect vehicle for my images
Hi all. I need help developing and launching a retail product that is related to the stationary/paper products/ gift market. I have several prototype images and copyright is not an issue. I would like to start off small to test the waters without commiting to a larger run. I realize trade shows are a great place to network, make contacts and locate manufacturers but the major shows don`t take place until next year. Attending would also allow me the opportunity to determine what products are the real winners before making an investment. I`m finding that an end product is needed before going much further with the artwork as it determines size, layout etc. I don`t know what requirements/formats manufacturers would require to produce. Also, I do a fairly good job at manipulating the images on my PC but I may need some help ultimately for them to be perfect. How do I move forward NOW? How can I find a short term mentor? The SBA hasen`t been all that helpful in the past. Any thoughts?
