Book Marketing Advent Calendar – Day 6 – Use Your Book Cover on Personalized Stamps and Phone Cases
Christmas – er, the holiday season – is a great time for experimenting with new gifts and gadgets. Why not start by making custom phone cases with your book cover on them? OK – I got this idea from Shanan Winters, author of RISING: Book One of The Adept Cycle and fellow member of Phoenix Publishing and Book Promotion. But it’s a kick-ass idea, so I’m sharing it with you.
Make custom phone cases with your book cover on them!
Cases for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and iPad mini, Samsung Galaxy, and Samsung Note are available at MyCustomCase.com. There are a LOT of options, but for such amazing personalization, the price range I saw from low $30s to about $50 seems quite reasonable. Offer them for sale on your website, or use them as prizes in your next giveaway! Place your order before December 17th to receive your case(s) by Christmas.
And speaking of personalization, if you’re mailing greeting cards this season, why not use personalized stamps that feature your book cover on them? That’s right. You can add your own book cover to real postage stamps you place on envelopes you mail to people. The colloquial term is “snail mail,” but anyone older than 20 knows it as just plain old mail. Think of how many eyeballs land on a letter between its leaving your hands and getting deposited into the mail slot of the recipient! Make sure your website is on there, running the length of the stamp. Even if it’s tiny, it will make an impression.
Use personalized stamps featuring your book cover on your holiday cards!
Order personalized stamps through Zazzle.com, PictureItPostage.com, or Photo.Stamps.com. Starting at $21.55 for a sheet of 20 stamps, they’re not cheap – but they will make a statement. If you’re not ready to do this for your own book, they’d make a great gift for an author! Order by December 17th to receive your stamps by Christmas, too.
Please be aware that these stamps are good only for domestic mail at this time.
Time to get busy customizing!
