When selling on Etsy, at a boutique, consignment, etc, you need some type of name to associate with your creations and style in order to help people remember you best (as if you didn't already know).
I have always been and extremely shy person, so for myself I came up with the name Chaseash last year; just a combination of my middle and first names which has really helped me develop characteristics unique to my own label (like a pen name). As I sewed through the year I was able to spread the word about my Etsy through friends, family, and classmates whenever possible.
Eventually I realized that I needed to start branding my own items, and had a nice lady on Etsy hand carve a stamp just for that very reason. It was well worth the money, and so far has already paid off so well!
I strongly recommend doing this type of thing, whether it be a linocut, woodblock, rubber stamp, or whatever you can use to place your trademark on: items, cards, tags, boxes, etc. This is my little branding technique to help you get those branding juices flowing!

Stamp, solvent ink, india ink, scissors, pinking shears, muslin, twine or embroidery thread, safety pins, hole punch, cardstock
