Banners

If you're selling food at the farmer's market, a banner is a must-have. The most useful banners are easy to read, tell customers who you are, where you farm, and of course, your credentials (that's one reason why your certification is so valuable!). If you have a logo, that should be front and center, but if you're still in the beginning stages and don't have a logo yet, fear not--we can create a unique banner with imagery that fits your farm's identity. Feel free to email our designer, Aly (alymiller@naturallygrown.org) with any questions.

Here's how to get started:

  1. Place your order in the CNG store for a banner design ($30)
  2. Aly will contact you so you can plan the banner together 
  3. She will share a few drafts, and once you've arrived at the winning design, she'll send you a high resolution file 
  4. You can upload the file to the banner printing website of your choice (we like banners.com), or send to a local printer 

Postcards


CNG Design Services Postcard

While online advertising seems like the norm, a beautiful piece of snail mail, straight from a local farm, stands out from the monotony of bills and grocery store coupons. Last year, a CNG member in Wisconsin asked us to create Every-Door-Direct postcards to announce his CSA signup. We designed a postcard that featured a stunning photo of his farm, a few photos of an average CSA haul, and catchy text. Postcards enabled him to reach the crowd that's not online, and a group of people who weren't yet in his network. Why not try it out? Pitch your idea to Aly and she'll come up with something great (alymiller@naturallygrown.org).

Sticker Labels

Make sure your brand has staying power by adding professionally designed labels to your packaging. We designed the honey labels above for a beekeeper in Arkansas, whose honey is found on the shelves of his local food co-op and farmers market stands. Take your honey or pickle jars to the next level with our design services!
