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, porn 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, we want you to surprise us!
Take a look around to get some ideas of what we do.
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 out loud!
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. We will let you know if we like any of your submissions.
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 97535
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!
PAYMENT: We pay $50 UPON ACCEPTANCE 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!
