NH Creative, Science & Tech Events: 3/4/18 - 3/10/18

by Pat Hammond on Thursday, March 01, 2018


How's this for a sneak peek?

All I can say is wow, wow, and wow! This is what happens when you combine art and business in the Granite State and it's just one of many local products on display at this year's Made in NH Expo. 

I received a press release from Elaine Farmer of White Birch Fine Art Studio featuring four coloring books she will be selling at next month's Made in NH Expo and was blown away by the products she put together. 

Setting aside how beautiful the images are, these coloring books are a fantastic example of finding alternate uses for existing products, how to create multiple revenue streams from one product, and maximizing your efforts for the greatest effect. 

Farmer originally developed these pictures for use in a veteran's art therapy program at the Manchester VA Center then capitalized on the adult coloring book trend by repurposing them as a viable product with a broad range of appeal across multiple markets. 

  • Gift for that hard to shop for person
  • Corporate swag bags
  • Boutique Hotel or Bed & Breakfast gift bag
  • Relaxation therapy for an overstressed adult

All of these images showcase the beauty of New Hampshire and it's not a stretch to see these becoming a hot item for this year's tourist season.  

Be sure to mark your calendar so you don't miss this year's  Made in NH Expo.  It runs April 6 - 8 at the Center of NH Expo Center, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, NH and it is always exciting to see just how many different products are made in the Granite State. 

If you can't make the Expo, you can also find the White Birch Fine Art Studio coloring books in their Etsy shop online
