Project Hyperjam (4/24/2010)

So last night was project Hyperjam, which I feel went well in some respects. Sure vendor traffic was a bit a week, but the main attraction at the event was indeed the performances. Which I have to saw seemed pretty good (well the bits I was able to catch). Oh and it awesome that one of the bands busted out with the Power Rangers theme. Although, I did hear Ninja Turtles performed as well but didn’t see it so I don’t know if it was the same band. Oh and yes vendor traffic was slow, but I did make a couple sales. So it wasn’t a total loss from a sales/business perspective. Sure I didn’t really break even in terms of the money for supplies, but I feel just being able to get Crazy Go Lucky out there made up for it. That and I met some cool people while there. So for a first event as a vendor, I feel it was a good experience. So now I just got to find more vendor gigs to keep getting Crazy Go Lucky out and into the public ^_^!

Note: I did take photos of the other vendors, but those didn’t come out well. My camera has lately been doing a terrible job at doing low lighting shots. I think part of why my table’s pics came out usable is because my table was next to the window so I the camera was able to use some of that natural light. Other than that I’m really not sure what’s going on. Though I definitely could use better camera.

With the 24th only being a few mins away, I’m here working on getting some last signs made. Aside from these, I believe I have one more series to do. Which is before I do the final task of checking and organizing shirt stock. This is actually starting to get exciting ^_^!

The Return Of The Pre-Orders

After some thinking, I decided to bring back the pre-orders. Sure it’s been less than a month that they were done away with, but I figured I should keep at it. For one thing, I don’t think I really advertised it or pushed it as well and would like to see if being more aggressive with it would help. Also since tomorrow is the first time I’m going to be a vendor at a live event, some of that exposure might help. Also one of the the pre-orders is actually an reorder. So those of you who wanted the Monkey Mayhem tee but it was sold out in your size, you’re in luck. As an added bonus it will also come with a free poster this time. Also keep in mind all these pre-orders are at the special price of $18 and will be $20 when they are in stock. So yeah, lets get the ball rolling.

Pricing Updates

It was a good run, but out of necessity and to make things easier for selling in public settings the $13 shirts are now $15. Keep in mind the normal price for a Crazy Go Lucky shirt is set currently at $20. So yes the price did go up but it’s still at a discount price and will stay that way until all current stock of those shirts runs out. If the shirts are restocked in the future they will most likely return back to the normal $20 price. So definitely take the opportunity to get them at discount while you can.

With about a week to go, I continued to get ready for Project Hyperjam. First, I got in an order for green Crazy Go Lucky logo buttons in the mail today. While some are a little off center, they’re still usable. Also last night, I printed out 100 fliers to give out. Which was somewhat of bad idea because it annihilated my printer’s black ink. Then I also printed out some mailing list sign up sheets for people who want to sign up. Then another thing I did today was go to Party City and get a table cloth and table skirt to decorate the table they’ll be providing. Only a few more items and tasks left til I’m set.

So out of boredom the other day, I decided to create a iamcrazymike user account. There I decided to dump all my old videos from college and before I came up with Crazy Go Lucky. While old, these videos do provide somewhat of an explanation on how I ended up with a nickname like “Crazy” Mike. So if you have nothing better to do, check it out.

So after picking my mom up from her first job to drive her to her second job, I made a stop at Office Depot. There I picked up some generic looking plastic shopping bags for use at Project Hyperjam. You know, so people who buy something can have something to hold the stuff in. Now the next thing to acquire on the list is a table cover. If only I knew what size table cover you would need for a 2ft x 6ft table -___-“.

Considering Project Hyperjam is going to be my first event as a vendor, I needed to go get some supplies for it. So last week week, I designed some business cards and a vinyl banner on the computer. I then went with the decision of having these items printed with I went with them due to recommendation and the prices being pretty cheap compared to some other online printers. So after about a week, I received the finished products today via UPS. Considering the price, the cards and banner actually came out pretty good(though the edges on the green side seem a little frayed). You couldn’t really tell I was trying to be cheap due to my limited budget to work with. But yeah, the quality is great and I would gladly use their services again. I guess the Crazy Go Lucky booth/table is not going to be that terrible after all.

Note: Since I was forced to use flash while taking these pics, the actual colors of the items are a tad duller/darker.
