Printed Guides
The printed guides feature a map of artist studios and Business Sponsor listings. Visitors rely on the maps to navigate the various studio locations, and after the weekend often keep them for future reference. This year we plan to print and distribute 10,000 maps.

These eye-catching 96″x 36″ banners are produced professionally in conjunction with NYC GO.  Your logo appears in the bottom part of the banner, in a design pre-determined by NYC GO. Banners are installed 4 weeks prior to GOS weekend and make a significant street-level impact at strategic locations in and around Gowanus.
