The Sampler is an innovative marketing & promotional tool for indie businesses. Each month, independent crafters, artists, shops, zines and record labels, send samples and promotional materials to a contribution pool. All the samples are photographed, posted to the site and then portioned out, put in packages and sent off to Sampler Subscribers, Sampler Contributors and members of the Media all over the world! If you own or work for an indie business, consider contributing to the Sampler. Contributors can find information here. Don’t own a business? That’s ok! For $26 a month you get a delightful package of 15 plus samples sent to your door! Find more subscription information here. They even have a bustling blog community so you can preview what goodies await you! Go Sampler!

    The Sampler is great! I was a contributor several times and I always had fun receiving my mail out.
