Hey Mintees,

with the Spring and Summer approaching quickly, we'll subscribe to many outside events in the next weeks.
I was wondering how indie brands around here were setting up their tents and displays?

It would be fun if everyone post some pictures of their setup. I love to see the branding of a company and how its booth can be unique!

    old school ShirtFight booth, worked very well for us!

  • Tee Project

    Great idea and nice looking set up you have there.

    Great! Is this a printed vinyl banner on the front?
  • El Presidente

    Yeah, it was incredibly cheap...got it printed at Fedex/Kinkos. You can tell them how big and where to put the grommets and everything. They also printed on corrugated vinyl for other signs.

    I created a custom rig for the front sign that bolted to the tent frame...it was easy but i'm too tired to find pix or explain how :)
  • GNARZILLA

    some punching bags would make the tent cooler than what it already is. liking the set up jud
  • Perception Apparel

    That is a great setup
  • zulhilmi

    great a setup!

    Thanks, it's not optimal but it worked nicely...my advice is to treat your tent like a mini store, not a tent. The more store like you make it, the more receptive your customers will be to it
  • immortalrevenge

    this thread read my mind, i was actually looking for booth pictures, which are hard to find
  • Flower Children

    awesome! keep posting pictures if you have some.

    Yes, that's what I had in mind too. I want to make it really stand out of the crowd.

    We've been doing shows pretty much every weekend for the last two years so if you have any questions I'd be happy to help. There are a lot of things that people don't think about when planning for their first show, so it's better to learn from other people's (costly) mistakes.
  • El Presidente

    Jeez i dunno how you do that many shows...the ones I did pretty much ruined me...hardest work I've done in a loooooong time!
  • FuzzyInk

    Haha, the easiest explanation is that I've completely lost my mind. On the plus side, we have an extended family pretty much anywhere we travel at this point. The lifestyle certainly isn't for everyone, and it's evident fairly quickly.
  • noFunk

    I remember the Linty Fresh booth being pretty rad! Did Eric make his way to Mintees?
  • CMYKBRAD

    Kyle, get in here! Guy has crazy booths.

    Sounds good! Thanks for the help.

    ;) I like that!
  • El Presidente

    That spiral is great :)

    Little things like that can make a huge difference...definitely check out Fedex/Kinkos for sign printing...like your little price signs could be printed on corrugated plastic (like what those Open House and Garage Sale signs are printed on) all nice and colorful with your logo, price, credit card logos, etc....all for like $20 bucks each. You could cover your table with printed vinyl for less than $100! It's surprisingly cheap. Just upgrade a little at a time, it doesn't have to be perfect the first few times you do it.

    This is my booth from a trade show in vegas. the racks cost me about $300 from the container store, but look pretty good. they are kind of a pain to setup though, so I usually only use them for multiple day events.

    Fuzzy Ink just does so many shows as an excuse to cruise around residential neighborhoods in a full-size van.
  • jfinley

    These are all looking nice! Btw, we have some limited space available for anyone who wants to set up a booth at Weapons of Mass Creation Fest in June. Hit me up!
  • FuzzyInk

    Brett, please don't leave out details. It's a white panel van...
  • Timbo Fresh

    Hey do you guys have sales people in other areas? You guys are are all over the map!

    We have a few people that have helped us before, but we're honestly at most of the shows. You should come out to the Renegade Brooklyn show in June if you're around.

    I'll be there for sure, the park is 10 blocks away.
    I'm actually launching a new project that will be there! Just got some confirmation this morning!

    I aint postin shit!

    This is my booth from around a year ago. The set up didn't work too well. It's definitely way more important to have the shirt designs in your face than on a rack.

    Good to know. I seriously love you setup though!
