Wrapping It Up for Holiday Sales

November TBA – Free for VAAA members

A sale doesn’t end the moment you make the transaction. The way you wrap your art represents your brand, your price point, and your vision for the future. When you simply place a necklace in a brown lunch bag or hand a painting over to a customer it leaves an impression on your customer. Show your customers you value your art as much as they do. In this session we will discuss and demonstrate low-cost wrapping techniques that show the value your art.
