Awards Sticker Available in DIY

An Indies Choice Book Awards sticker has been added to the Bookseller DIY to help stores promote this year’s winners and honor books. The graphic is a 2" circle, but the art can be scaled to almost any size, larger or smaller, and printed locally. A 2012 Indies Choice Books Awards logo is also available in the DIY in a variety of formats for use in print and online, as are graphics for the E.B. Read-Aloud Awards.

A limited number of printed foil stickers to promote this year’s E.B. White winners and honor books is available to members of the ABC Group at ABA upon request and as long as supplies last. To request E.B. White award stickers, ABC Group members should contact ABA Industry Relations Assistant Carolyn Bennett.
