Having taken into consideration the rising costs of printing,
the staff resources required, and the difficulties we
experienced last year with distributing the Guide, we have
decided for 2016 not to produce a printed version but rather
concentrate our resources on further developing the on-line
Guide to Craft & Art in Nova Scotia. Our goal is to offer an
inclusive listing of people, places and events that is
user-friendly, affordable and cost effective for all involved.
Based on changing consumer needs, we have adapted our
strategy. Knowing that at least 85% of
travelers use the internet when planning their vacations, then
use their smartphones for local information when traveling, this
year we are creative and distributing a rack card directing
people to our web-based search engine
This mobile-friendly website allows visitors to search listings by tourism region,
craft/art media, or business name. Linked to Google maps,
tourists can easily find you and other nearby shops, art
galleries, artists, studios, organizations and craft events.
We look forward to working with each of you to provide
up-to-date content and visually exciting images that entice
travelers to discover, purchase and enjoy your work. Our tech
consultant has been re-tooling the website so we can easily
update its content with new information and photos from you.
Now that the 2016 website is ready for you, we anticipate a streamlined
process of updating basic listings at a nominal fee in
turn support of printing and mailing of a rack card which will
be used to promote the Guide's website this year. Ad options
will also be available on the website as in the past. Copies of
the rack card will be distributed to all of our contributing
clients (currently 200) as well as the NS Visitor Information Centres.
We're here to help you stretch a dollar and let the world
know how exceptional Nova Scotia's craftspeople and artists
