Selling my product to a business: Questions

Okay, I made a similar post a few months ago, but I posed a different question.

Anyway, now I have a new question...

I have made a product. A 'poster'. It's an item that would be sold in places like Spencer Gifts, and other stores that deal with horror type merchandise.

Anyway, i'm interested in approaching Spencer Gifts (as the first store) to see if they'd be interested in carrying the item. I have no problem mass producing it myself.

Anyone have any experience in how I go about doing this? Calling their corporate office, sending a info packet along with a product sample, doing a sales pitch, etc......

Also, anyone know of any movie/horror/etc.... themed/related type stores that they could list here?

Thanks for any help!

I sold it on eBay this past summer with successful results. However, to sell a higher quantity, I figured this might be a good way to go.

Best bet, but call coporate office first and ask to speak to an approiate person in charge of purchasing. Talk to him, ask him what their company policy is and what you need to do and/or tell him you will send the packet.

You may want to consider registering a copyright for your work. That will strengthen your claim of ownership if Spencer decides that they want to market your work, but not owe you anything.
