(holy crap another journal??!)
That's right, peeps, another journal coming your way. But with good news this time!
Or, y'know, not bad and/or saddening news.

ANYWAY.
I have this really awesome friend who I've started helping work on a video game project of his, and we're both artists and have been looking to do a convention together as vendors/artists since -like- high school.
This year, thanks to early planning and good timing, we're going to make it happen!

Central City ComicCon 2016 isn't until October, though, so I'm going to take advantage of the early notification to ask for some advice. I've never been a vendor before or a participant in an Artist's Alley, so while I have a general idea of what to expect, I'd still really like any practiced con-goers to provide their input.
I know for a fact that I'm going to need at least the following;
+Business cards
+Signage
+Display options
+Product
I'm also considering getting a back up battery pack for my laptop in case there aren't any nearby outlets, and maybe a secondary monitor to set up so passersby can watch me and/or my friend draw.
What I really want to know, though, is the best options for a first time vendor. I know I need business cards, but I don't know the best place to get quality ones printed for a reasonable price, same for any signs or banners. I need to figure out what kinds of print sizes I should go for, which ones sell the most and why, what kind of paper should I print on, which print maker is going to be the best bet, should I consider any non-print merch, like shirts or cups?

I also need some help deciding on images worthy of printing. I've done a lot of work lately that I feel is high quality, but almost all of it is fanwork, and I'm not sure of the legalities involved (except with Undertale, cause Toby Fox was super clear on that and unless I get express permission I'm not selling ANY Undertale merch EVER). There is some original stuff floating around, but I haven't finished most of it, and if I do have it done, it's VERY old and needs updating.
I may take a couple suggestions/requests if all else fails.

But yeah, Central City ComicCon 2016, Yakima, WA.
Any thoughts?

You're super welcome!
I was really impressed by your speedpaint as well, you have a really good eye for line weight and cloth folds. I was particularly impressed by the way you used the selection tool to work out how you wanted to shade things, I've never managed to make that technique work for me so it's always really cool seeing it put to use effectively. :)
