Selling at the Electric Daisy Carnival?  Would you like to sell at it? 

If you would like to sell at this festival or another fest, we have created a partnership with Prime Time Custom Printing to offer the lowest prices on customized festival merchandise and due to our help with their websites traffic and business, one of the agreements we have had from them is to give our visitors 30% off their order with our festival discount code.  To get this deal, we only ask that you include a link to our website on your website or join our facebook page and add a link on your wall.  It might sound like a hassle, I know, but we are able to guarantee the lowest prices on the customized festival products to each one of you, so in return, it’s a pretty fair deal if I do say so myself.
We also offer vendor packages for those who wants to sell at a booth in a reserved spot (in some cases these are sold out, so check in advance before ordering your products).  Prices of customized goods are anywhere from $0.50 to $2.50 depending on the item i.e. shot glasses, customized festival plates, Frisbees, you name it.  The sales prices on these fine crafted items are usually $5-10; and with a festival that garners 10,000 and you sell to just 5 out of every 100; well your revenue would be $2,500-$5,000 revenue in under 6 hours of work.  Not too shabby!  For more information, visit our Festival promo products and Vending page.
