    For quite a few years now, mainstream publishers have been handing out cards like this (4×6) with the book cover on the front, sales text on the back, along with a download code for a digital review copy. (I have one for Neil Gaiman’s “Odd and the Frost Giants”, from May 2008.)

    It saves shipping, costs, and more likely to be accepted by an attendee with limited luggage capacity, and becomes a collectible.
    Given the limited amount of each card, Comixology and their publishing partners should have placed a free download code on each card.
