Let your reader's imagination do the work.

The SFWA article (Small Press, via Victoria Strauss) was really informative, and surprisingly unbiased, though I did notice the PRO side of the column is quite a bit shorter than the CON. SFWA isn't exactly...small press friendly. For example, Finder could be nominated for the Nebula (and was! Ha!) but because I didn't earn the advance they require for admission to the organization, I couldn't even vote for myself. They allow small press nominations, but won't allow small press authors into the club. It's...interesting.
