Back to main menu :: [Prev] branding [Next]

If I'm going to do this craft fair thing, I think I should come up with a "name." I'll make up some little business cards to hand out in case anyone wants to order stuff later, or wants a piece in a different color or something. I thought up a couple of possibilities, but I'm not sure I like them enough:

Neato Beads (too cute?)
Seeds and Stones (unintentional appeal to pot smokers?)

I asked Jim to help me brainstorm some more ideas, and things quickly descended into silliness:

Shut Your Beadhole
Mars Needs Beads
Beading-Heart Liberal (I kinda like this one)
It Takes a Nation of Beads to Hold Us Back
If You Cut Me, Do I Not Bead?
Beadin' Like a Red-headed Stepchild (I kinda like this one, too)
Small, Round, & Holey
Only Women Bead

Then we started in on the "strand" puns, and I thought maybe I should ask for help from the level-headed fans of RubberNun. What say you?

I don't think it would be possible to improve on "Beading-Heart Liberal."

I second the 'Beading-Heart Liberal'. Simple and effective.
You could use a flaming heart as part of your logo:

beading-heart liberal is fucking perfect.

Another vote for the beading-heart.

Although you could take *that* in another direction: "Bestill My Beading Heart."

So, nobody likes "Beadin' like a red-headed stepchild"?

2 problems that I see:
1) Too long for a business card
2) Open to interpretation, considering that you yourself have red hair.
I'm just sayin'.

beadtastic! yes it's stupid but funny stupid!

Oooh! I'm torn between the Beading Heart Liberal and Beading Like a Red-Headed Stepchild. But, the first will fit on a card better, and it lends itself to a great logo.

My only worry is that Beading-Heart Liberal makes the jewelry sound political, sorta like the activist jewelry at She Does Jewelry. (I've been meaning to steal her ideas for a while, though.)

Perhaps if you used a [heart] symbol instead of the word, then people would think you were being a wise-acre, a not unwarranted assumption, I believe. And also you could send some tiny portion of your profits (there might be profits!) to a worthy liberal cause?
