Make it simple. Make it memorable. Make it inviting to look at. Make it fun to read.Leo Burnett about Advertising
To perform, an entertainer needs someone to perform for. This means getting the word out. All performers have ways of promoting their programs. The methods have changed over the years, but the goal remains the same.
From the simple business card to the promotional packets, exploring our archive of member promotional materials will give you a glimpse of some of our members.
Business Cards & Post Cards
Business cards used to be all one-sided. Today, business cards are still used, but they are usually two-sided and, of course, the graphics have improved immensely.
Business cards can also be more than two sides, like this fold-out example from Steve Varro.
Other Promotional Materials
Andre’ Kole belonged to the Fellowship of Christian Magicians for over 50 years until he went home to the Lord on October 17, 2022.
There is a great variety of promotional material used by our members. Our collection includes everything from single brochures to a whole packet of items.
Items Sent with Personal Letters & FCM Use
Some items were sent with a personal letters to Stan Adair while he was researching for the What a Fellowship book. Others, such as the exhibit on Magic Bob & Suzie Zoerman were sent for publication in the FCM magazines.
Groups of Photos
When an article is going to be done for the magazine, some members send us a group of publicity photos.
