Custom printing is the best way to promote this local business

In order to promote special events at her studio and the Urban Street Bazaar, Julie McCullough, owner of Make + Made, prints flyers and booklets with She is able to easily put her own style into them, and print in large quantities, while keeping the costs low.

See how she spreads the word about this fun event in the video above, as well as more about starting her distinctive businesses with unique items from local vendors.

Make + Made is a studio that offers classes with modern projects in traditional mediums like sewing.

It is located in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, TX. This area is full of independent restaurants and unique shops and art galleries. People drive from all around the Metroplex to eat, shop, and relax in an area with a different atmosphere from the rest of the city.

Julie also opened the IndieGenius boutique in Bishop Arts when she realized there was a hole in the market. She created a place for micro-boutiques to sell their merchandise in a venue other than online. The shop offered spaces for local, independent designers to set up for their homemade and vintage goods. Findings in the shop included unique clothing and purses, jewelry, cute kids clothing, original artwork and home accessories, along with vintage furniture, wall décor, and more.

Julie has since refocused her efforts from IndieGenius to expanding Make +Made and the Urban Street Bazaar. The bazaar brings the experience of IndieGenius onto the street. It’s a venue for exceptional local crafters to sell their homemade and vintage items. Shoppers can find modern crafts and designs in a variety of mediums, along with live music, and of course, the artistic atmosphere of the Bishop Arts District. As Julie tells it, “This isn’t your grandma’s craft bazaar.” It is now held two or three times each year.

    What’s up? My name is Adam Taylor and as a fellow creative I believe that we are the tastemakers for the new generation. I’m interested in expanding my artistic side while also seeing what others are doing to advance the culture as a whole.

    I was looking through your site and I saw that you are doing a lot yourself to help promote the creative community. I was wondering if you would allow me to contribute a piece to your blog that speaks to how creative and artistic people are working with forward-thinking businesses to bring the culture as a whole to a higher level of possibility.

    I would love to discuss some of the artistic collaborations that are taking place right now in the industry, and the role they serve in progressing the creative community. Please let me know if this topic is something that would be of interest to you, as well as your readers.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
    – Adam
