Designer Makers Need Your Support


I am new to setting up my own business as a designer maker trying to make a living from being creative but I am by no means the only one.

I recently came across a campaign set up by Sarah Hamilton to support all manner of independent small creative businesses and I think it is a fab idea so I have joined in and you can too!

So what can YOU DO, I hear you ask? Answer: any or all of the following!

  • If you love hand made then try to support local creators, galleries, fairs, exhibitions etc by buying from them.  It doesn’t have to be a huge purchase or investment but as is often said, every little really does help and it will make such a difference to the maker.
  • If you love a particular maker, gallery, exhibition etc then SPREAD THE WORD if you love them then I’m sure others will too
    • tell your family and friends how fab they are and why
    • blog about them
    • like their facebook page
    • follow them on twitter, pinterest, instagram
    • tell them how you’re supporting their work
  • if you know someone who would really appreciate a hand made gift that’s a bit different, then buy for them
  • add the Just a Card logo to your blog to show your support
  • add your support to the campaign by following it on twitter
  • anything else you can think of to HELP KEEP MAKERS MAKING

Thank you for your support, it is much appreciated…
