Sign Holder and Name Plate Holder spotlights for National Handmade Day, April 7th

Celebrating National Handmade Day? If you’re not involved directly yourself, you might be surprised to know that handmade items are growing significantly in popularity…and sales. Amazon even had the forethought to open an entire online division of handmade items in time for the 2016 Christmas shopping season.

National Handmade Day April 7th recognizes the artisans “who put forth their creative talents into gifts that warm the heart.” From bread to furniture, clothes, quilts, and the downright unusual, dedication to craftsmanship is a tradition staying active from one generation to the next. For those who send and receive handmade items as gifts, there also seems to be a higher level of satisfaction with something so unique.

That’s why handmade artisan stores are hoping to make a splash April 7th, both online and in brick-and-mortar establishments.

We’ve taken a bit of inspiration ourselves in the handmade artisan department, a look that’s reflected in new Name Plate Holder styles and custom Name Plate inserts in different patterns and fonts. Tiered acrylic is taking visibility to higher heights!

In-store handmade specialties also get more distinctive focus and grab full attention from passing foot traffic when spotlighted in Sign Holders and Display Stands. Style G is a Triangular Table Tent Menu Holder with room for three inserts to show standout handmade items. A D6 Sign Holder/Display Stand DOUBLES that exposure with a 6-sided view. Another nice display accent for an artisan shop? The Style Q 4-sided Sign Holder that reaches customer eyes on all sides with four separate inserts in a distinctive, eye-catching hollow square shape.

Wondering who came up with National Handmade Day? A small family business in Texas called “From Scratch Farm” got the ball rolling. “From Scratch Farm” offers products like lip balms, body scrubs, detergents, and cleaners with more natural ingredients. Owner/Operator Amy Bierstedt wanted to help similar businesses better promote organic choices in greater numbers…from custom postcards to t-shirts. Check out the handmades this weekend!
