One man’s junk is another man’s treasure: This saying couldn’t be more true!

Choosing the Perfect Craft Business Name
One thing you need to think about is a craft business name. Making a crafty first impression takes a bit of creativity, right? Craft business names should scream "creative," which shouldn’t be hard with your crafty mind, but here are a few tips to help you pick a name:
Use puns. Puns are fun in a business name and can be catchy enough to be remembered!
Use rhymes. Rhymes are also fun and very easy to remember. Using a rhyme in your business name will surely help it to stick!
Use your specialty. If you do a specific type of craft such as sewing, choose a name that reflects this to let people know just what you do!
Use your name. Artists should be known by name and so should good business owners. Don’t be shy to use your name to personalize and uniquely identify your business.
Grab a pen and paper and begin making a long list of every potential name that comes to mind, even if it's silly or ridiculous. You are obviously going to narrow this list down later through the process of elimination, so don't edit yourself now.
Other Things to Consider
Once your brainstorming list is long and complete, it’s time to begin narrowing it down. The following tips may help you to shorten that list:
Is the name easy to pronounce and remember?
Is the name available on social networking sites and on art sites such as Etsy and Artfire?
Is the name already taken and protected by copyright? Check with Copyright.gov.
- Is there a web domain available in that name? Check with Whois.
- Is the name as unique as the items you make? Does it reflect the medium, purpose, and spirit of the products you create?
Once you've chosen a name, you’ll be able to move onto everything else you need to do to start your business. In the meantime, you can always get a head start on making your products; perhaps you’ll find inspiration in your creations!
