In this episode, Marni and Diana discuss various kind of promotional swag available to you as an author to promote yourself and your books and how to get it.


#TIL
SWAG is an acronym for “Stuff We All Get.”

As promised, here are some resources you can use to make your own swag:

Resources Diana and Marni have used and recommend:

  • VistaPrint is a great place to do print items - bookmarks, postcards, stickers, and bookplates!

  • That said, if you want some fancy stickers, StickerMule is a great option.

  • T-shirts and hoodies don’t get better than the ones you can make with TeePublic!

  • Redbubble is a wonderful resource for all kinds of swag and merch!
