Anemone Letterpress had a 80 sq ft in-line booth under the low ceilings for their fourth year exhibiting at NSS. They built framed hard wood walls, using plywood and laminate on the plywood on the rear wall for color. Their booth was lit with 6 halogen spot lights – similar to Skanda lights – that they sourced on eBay. Carpet tiles were from FLOR and their signage was cut vinyl created by a guy local to them in Los Angeles. For past shows Carrie and Wally had affixed their cards direction to the booth walls, but in 2014 they added trim for shelving to display cards. All furniture was purchased at Ikea and will be reused for future shows. They used Showtime Express to ship their crate to NY, and it is now stored in Showtime’s warehouse. One way shipping cost about $750 and storage for a year is roughly the same. Carrie recommends communicating with tradeshow unions via email so you have everything in writing.
