Please use these resources to help promote and invite guests to the Market!
Be sure to “like” the Wichita Alternative Gift Market facebook page, then invite your friends to do so, as well! Also, RSVP for the Market on the “events” page (even if it’s just a “maybe”) and invite your friends. Be sure to come back during/after the Market to post photos and comments about your meaningful holiday shopping experience!
Thanks to My-Trinh Nguyen, one of our long-time volunteers, you can find fresh content with lots of detailed information on a regular basis on the market’s instagram page — new for 2017!

2017 BUSINESS CARDS
Print the two-sided, color PDF or Word document below on letter-sized card stock, cut (8 business cards per page; or use pre-perforated business card pages), and distribute to your friends, family, colleagues, church members, and everyone you meet! Use “actual size” printer settings for best results.
2017 SAVE THE DATE LABELS
Click on either the Word or PDF document link below to print on Avery 5160 or 8460 address labels (30 per page, 1 in. x 2 5/8 in.) and adhere to AGI catalogs (or anything you’d like) before distributing to your friends, neighbors, coworkers, church attendees, or just around town!
2017 MARKET PUBLICITY POSTERS
Coming soon! Click on the PDF links above to print either (or both!) of the one-sided, color PDF document on glossy (recommended) paper. Then hang copies in your neighborhood cafes, office bulletin boards, etc. … be sure to get posting permission first, of course!
2017 BULLETIN/PROGRAM INSERT
Coming soon! Click on the PDF links above to print the two-sided PDF document. Then include in your congregation’s worship service bulletin or your organization’s brochure or event program as an informative insert to promote your volunteer work!
2017 MEDIA RELEASE
Coming soon! Steering committee volunteers send the media release to as many Wichita-area press (radio, TV, magazines, newspapers, communication consultants) as we can think of. But if you have a personal connection or a specific contact at any local media outlet, please don’t hesitate to send it to them — it’s that personal connection that could make the difference! We have a very small budget for publicity/marketing, as the majority of the funds raised on market day go to the projects themselves — to the people in our community and around the world who are in need. In other words, we don’t pay for very much advertising; so please help us try to get as much free publicity as possible — let’s make sure everyone in Wichita knows that they are invited to the market!
Coming soon! If you prefer more traditional handbills (rather than the new business-card option this year), please print the single-sided color PDF above on 8.5 x 11 inch “letter” sized paper (glossy would be nice, but not necessary), then cut to make four per page. Distribute as you like–in person with a friendly verbal invitation is always best!
2017 POSTCARD INVITATIONS
Coming soon! Click on the PDF link to download front and back sides of this 4×6 inch postcard invitation. Adjust and print as necessary onto card stock. Be sure to affix US Postal Service first-class rate postcard postage before mailing to your friends!
