Display: I just got a new display. I really like it, and I've had many artists come by and ask me where I got it. I'm using the 5' x 2' grid walls that are connectable (They use a similar size of these in the art show at ACEN, if that gives you an idea). I really liked them. A typical artist will need 2 or 4 and a connector or two. I forgot to take a picture of my display at acen, but I have a really badpic from set-up at Detour. http://thatreevesgir...ost/20337313708 I like these displays since you can get shelf attachments for the grids. http://www.storesupply.com is where I got them and all of the cool accessories (minus my duct-tape covered shelves that work as shelves and are magnetic which I made myself).
Badges: Watch for clearance sales at Laminationdepot.com It isn't the cheapest for day to day lamination pricing, but their clearance prices are unbeatable and the product is quality. The size I use and like are the 3"x4" hunting badge 10 mil.
What I'm looking for: Where people buy the cheapest resealable print bags or ones with die-cut handles? I have a place I buy cheap poly-bags from, but I really want my print bags to look more professional (so I want to get the crystal clear high mil count bags with the reseal strip or handles).
Bonus: I'm starting a tumblr that will show how to make things like my awesome magnetic shelves, or how I set up a display, or whatever anyone else wants to know. I have to finish my finals first, and enjoy my birthday, but it is the next thing on my to do list after that. I'll be testing marker paper and doing a lot of other things that I think you guys will find helpful. It will also put my seven years of artist alley experience to good use.
