The word count costs are the same as the monthly news, but not free notices.

It will go out to all Blind Post subscribers within one day of approval, and will also be posted to the website.

Extra Extra notices and Sponsors Of the month
Greetings, precious humans! This is Laura, owner of Elegant Insights Braille Creations. Happy summer!
As they say on the social, how's your pandemic going? Hope you are all safe and well.
As you know, summer is convention season, and of course, this year they've gone virtual!
Elegant Insights will exhibit as a vendor at the NFB convention from July 14th to July 18th. Please check out our vendor page on the convention web site,
and join our Zoom room during exhibit hall hours. The NFB has provided exhibitors with a virtual exhibit hall booth that will consist of a description
of our business, a few photos, links to web site and social media, and an invitation to join our live Zoom room where we can hang out all day, or, in our
case, for a specific period of time, with a posted schedule, as I'll be sharing the Zoom room with another vendor. I'm really looking forward to greeting
those of you I've met at previous NFB events, as well as making new friends - virtually, of course!
I'm so proud to announce that I have joined the National Federation of the Blind as a member, and I've also joined the National Association of Blind Merchants!
To celebrate, Elegant Insights has crafted a special item just for the NFB20 convention! Get our souvenir key tag with a carabiner clip, split ring for
keys, and a stainless steel military-style dog tag with "live the life you want" embossed in braille. This year, we're also adding a choice of decorative
charms. To commemorate the first-ever virtual convention, choose the USA country shaped charm. Wish the event was still being held in Texas? Then choose
the Texas state charm instead! Our souvenir key tags are just $25.00 plus shipping, and you can get yours here:
During the week of the convention, we'll share something new every day. Want a sneak preview? We're making A Case For Color with our brand new business
card cases. These slim, lightweight aluminum business card holders are great for carrying your ID, bank or credit cards, insurance or loyalty cards, or
even as a fun way to present a gift card...No gift wrap needed! Available in 9 colors, our super cool card cases can be braille-embossed with your name,
company name, or tag line. See them here:
Looking for some great summer style? I'm flat crazy about our new Expandable Dangle Bangles. They're a new angle on a bangle. They jingle-jangle! Our
bangles have dangles! These slip-over-the-wrist wire bangle bracelets are available in a half-dozen styles, including seasonal, holiday, and celestial
motifs. They are inexpensive and fun to collect. Check out our entire bracelet inventory here:
Not only will we have pretty new jewelry items to share, we've got some fun announcements to make as well! Here's a hint: You've been asking for alternatives
to pierced earrings, so we just might have a few options for you! Plus, we'll have Q and A, drawings for door prizes, giveaways, flash sales, and all
sorts of reasons to check in on our online booth each day of the convention. I'm calling our virtual space the Bubbles and Baubles Beverage and Sparkle
Bar! Bring along your favorite beverage, and let's talk jewelry!
I'm delighted to have the opportunity to share my Elegant Insights Braille Creations with you as a new NFB member, and even though I know the current circumstances
are not ideal, let's make the most of it and have a blast! Hey, and no masks needed, right?
So, be sure to stop by the virtual exhibit hall during the convention, and if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to visit
or call Laura at 702-605-1265.
