Guild Show Guide

Advertising in the Guild Show Guide is a smart way of keeping your name and your business information at hand for show patrons all year long. Every dealer at the show receives a simple eighth-page ad, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of this advertising opportunity to upgrade your ad and include your logo and color photos of your wares. At these prices, it’s a good investment! 

All show patrons receive these programs and many keep them to refer to throughout the year. We hope you will consider supporting the Guild Show with your ad in the Show Guide. 

All ads will be in full CMYK color and must be submitted in high resolution  (300dpi), in either PDF, TIFF, or JPG format and should be submitted to Betsy Roxby at design@igma.org. Questions on artwork submissions can be sent to the same address. 

General questions on advertising should be directed to Linda Zechel at guildshowdirector@igma.org.   

If you need assistance creating an ad, we can work with you to create something terrific. There is a nominal charge for design services (at a non-profit rate). Please contact Guild Show Director Linda Zechel at guildshowdirector@igma.org for more information.

There will be an Online Version of the Show Brochure (pdf) available for download  on the IGMA Site with hyperlinks to your websites. 

Ad space is limited. Please reserve your ad space as soon as possible. The deadline is Friday, August 13, 2021.

Free Social Media Advertising

The Guild maintains several online accounts working to advertise the show and show participants. Other than a bit of time to send us photos of your wares, taking advantage of these opportunities is free of charge because of our dedicated volunteers. Close-up photos of a single object show work to the best advantage. The photos will be used in all of our print and website advertising. Please send photos to Cindy Adams at fbadmin@igma.org.

Sponsorship Advertising

Businesses and individuals are invited to support The Guild Show and its various components. Advertising in the Show Guide is one opportunity of many to sponsor this event. Sponsors’ names are prominently featured on large, unique posters outside event rooms and are announced in the Show Guide. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, or know someone who might like to be, please contact Guild Show Director Linda Zechel at guildshowdirector@igma.org.

Wishing Well Ads

Help support The Guild Show by sending special wishes in the Show Guide! You could dedicate one to a favorite artist; or a funny message to a close friend; share an inspirational thought with your kindred spirits in miniatures; or send general well wishes and thanks to all who volunteer and participate! Your creativity is the only limit—and we can help if you want something special. $25 each.
