how far ahead to advertise?

I send my postcard invites about 3 weeks out. I email twice, once about the same time, 3 weeks out. Again just a couple days before the sale or a day before the sale as a reminder. Even when you think you make it super clear when your sale is, people always ask again and again when it is. What is obvious to you is not obvious to them.

I'd take Phil's advice on e-mails at least once close to the sale as folks do not recall much these days-also mention all sale details on everything dates times etc.
Another tip is use fluorescent poster board for signage as your eye cannot miss it. I use it to this day on a sale I do at Christmas for past 32 years-folks really cannot miss the signs and thats the best feedback you can hear on signage. Why have a sign that is hard to see?
The other thing is those bright signs bring in folks who know nothing about the sale/show as well.
