As part of my promotional items i am giving away free bottles of water, i was looking into what type of bottles to use and i want to use a glass bottle as it looks more elegant but to mass produce would cost alot more then plastic bottles. Also there is more of a health and safety risk with using glass bottles for the show. Looking at the glass bottles they look alot more sophisticated and the normal graphic shape changes as some have graphics all over where as some have there image on the front compared to the plastic bottles that have the sleeve that wraps all the way round/
Last week I made a tee shirt that would be on sale as part of my show. To create the t-shirt I tie died a tee and then took it into our printmaking facilities and screen printed over the tie die which gave it a nice effect. Some minor problems happened whilst printing but nothing major. These problems consited of not enough ink in some places
Last week i took a trip to roland to print some promotional stickers. During my trip there i had some problems with printing as some of the stickers came out oversized, but this problem was quickly fixed and i managed to produce stickers at the size i wanted.
As part of my project i will create some promotional items to sell/give away at my show, i was looking at everyday things people use aswell as the typical giveaways at art shows. I came up with the idea of an airfreshner for cars as alot of them are boring and are really just there to make the car smell nice. After looking at some of the examples of airfreshners i have found i know that mine need to stand out and ive found humours ones seem to stand out the most aswell as famous cartoon characters. But it seems that alot of people still go for the boring cut out tree. I do not want mine to be a cut out shape as it will cost alot when mass produced. I think as my artwork is already rectangular i will keep it that shape.
