The Getting Started Guide

Things to stick in windows or wave in the air
There’s a lot, lot more in Totally Locally’s magic kit, but here’s a taster of the good things to come. Feel free to stick them in windows, print them on balloons or decorate the sides of buses. All we ask is that you let us know, ask us if you want to make any changes and credit us where you can.
We wanted to get across what Totally Locally was about – not the actual doing, but the feeling you get when you shop Totally Locally. Difficult, but the “Manifesto” was our answer. We ran it in the Totally Locally Times, and people started cutting it out and sticking it up in shop windows… So we thought let’s give it away for free.
Stickers to show your support for Totally Locally. We’ll create your town’s very own version when you launch, but here’s one you can use to start spreading the word.
Display this poster with pride and show just how many local suppliers and businesses you support. It’s what makes your local economy go round. When you’ve added up your window cleaner, accountant, your printers, and that great sandwich shop you get your lunch from, you’ll be surprised at the difference you already make.
A lovely logo for everyone and everything. We print this on balloons, but you can use it wherever you like.
These are the posters that you can see in passed around in our town videos. They look great in shops, business receptions, on market stalls… pretty much anywhere.
And here’s another version for you.

Hidden Gems Questionnaire
We put this in its own section as it is requested a lot from us. This is the questionnaire that we ask people to fill in when they are nominating a Hidden Gem…we have left it in word format so that you can edit in and then send it back to us electronically.
