GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING SLOGANS TO EPHEMERA
Since 1980, we’ve been producing Novelty Buttons, Magnets, and
Stickers. You'll find our stuff in many cutting edge card & gift
shops, bookstores, music stores, gay & left wing shops, porno stores,
etc. We’re looking for satirical slogans about pop culture, politics
& the president, job attitudes, women's & men’s issues, coffee, booze,
pot, drugs, religion, food, aging, teens, gays & lesbians, sexual come-ons
& put-downs. But please don't limit yourself to these topics, surprise us!
We're looking for fresh, interesting, ORIGINAL MATERIAL.
Don’t waste our time with old clichés or material that has been done
before! BE CONCISE. Our buttons and magnets are small, so we are
looking for HIGH IMPACT gems of wit stated in AS FEW WORDS AS POSSIBLE.
Ephemera has a reputation for coming up with the most irreverent, provocative
and outrageously funny material on the market. We encourage you to be as
weird, twisted or rude as you like. Remember, we want humor that makes us laugh
PRESENTATION: Via email: Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s best to have the slogans in the body of the email instead
of as an attachment.
Via regular mail: The best way to submit slogans is to send us a
typed list. Send to EPHEMERA, Attn: Editor, PO Box 490, Phoenix, OREGON
Please don’t waste trees by sending us stacks of cards. The less
paper the better!
INCLUDE A SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE for our reply.
Submissions without a SASE might not be returned to you!
FEEDBACK: Expect our initial response within 1-6 months
depending on how backlogged we are. We’re always looking for fresh
material. Before we manufacture, we test-market the slogans we’re
considering with some of our buyers in stores around the country. If the buyers
like your slogans we will produce them and pay you UPON ACCEPTANCE.
PAYMENT: We pay $50 for the exclusive rights to each
slogan that we buy.
SUCCESS RATE: We want you to be realistic about the
probabilities of selling your slogans to us. We buy less than 1% of all the
thousands of ideas submitted to us.
BE CONCISE & ORIGINAL! GOOD LUCK!
