There is an increasing number of online craft marketplaces, such as Etsy, Amazon's Handmade, Artfire, and many other specialist sites. Selling online is a viable proposition for anyone with access to the internet. No technical skills are required to set up an online store within these online handmade marketplaces. Starting a store on Etsy is relatively quick and easy to do. But, you will need to work hard at taking top-notch photos of your cards, crafting superb product descriptions, and learning about search engine optimization and keywords to really get your online business off the ground. Don't worry if this sounds daunting, the Etsy seller's handbook is a fabulous source of information and will help you get started.
There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively. 

Angie, where have you been all my (design) life?! Thank you so so much for doing all of this work and for sharing it with us. Wow. Absolutely incredible collection. Tell me, please, if I want to use a printout of something here as a background image in a mixed media piece, what is the cost? (I am working on a painting series, and one will be donated to an auction for charity; the others may be placed for sale at some point.) Thank you again!
Thank you for checking out my auctions.   Please take a close look at the scans of the cards for condition of each card.  Please feel free to email me with any questions and to follow my auctions.  Shipping is a flat rate of $3 for any number of cards that you are purchasing for U.S. customers.  I will combine your invoices as the new auctions end to reflect the shipping cost.     I usually ship one day a week, so please let me know if you need your package in a rush. For international shipping, I can ship your card without tracking to save on shipping.  Please message me to discuss your shipping preferences. Thanks again for visiting my store and please stop by again.
46) Coffee Spoons Print. This fantastic coffee spoons printable was scanned from an antique silverware catalog. The print shows a collection of 15 silver coffee spoons, in all different patterns, fanned out in an oval shape. If you look closely you will see that each of the pattern names are next to the spoon. Some are very ornate and some are quite plain.

As of March, 2016, Etsy's top three competitors according to Hoovers Online are Amazon Handmade, Craigslist, and eBay.[91] Etsy has been compared to "a crafty cross between Amazon and eBay",[52] and to "your grandma's basement".[92] Etsy also has a number of direct competitors. DaWanda [de], based in Germany, closed in August 2018, ezebee.com, based in Switzerland, is a global competitor, but also caters to freelancers and professionals[93] Bonanza (formerly Bonanzle and 1000 Markets[94]) is based in the United States and focuses on clothing and fashion, Zibbet and Made It which are based in Australia, iCraft is based in Canada,[95] Artfire is based in the United States,[96] and Hello Pretty is an online craft marketplace targeted at South Africans.[97] Tindie is based in Portland, Oregon, and focuses on technology and electronics.[98] ArtYah is based in California, United States undergoing speedy growth and has worldwide sellers and consumers of handmade items, vintage and some craft supplies.[99]
One of our favorite games to play, giddy in our seats, while awaiting a bride’s first steps down the aisle is “guess the veil.” And if last year was all about glittery, jazzed-up versions that can affectionately be described as “extra,” this year brides are switching things up yet again, often opting to forgo veils entirely. “Brides are turning traditionalism on its head—literally—and rethinking the classic veil with showstopping modern alternatives,” says Dayna. From bridal hats to feathered headpieces, there’s a fresh head-topper for every bridal style.

In 2014, Etsy garnered a revenue of US$195.6 million, but registered a net loss of US$15.2 million. The platform generates revenue primarily from three streams: its Marketplace revenue includes a fee of [8] 5% of final sale value, which an Etsy seller pays for each completed transaction, on top of a listing fee of 20 cents per item; Seller Services, Etsy's fastest growing revenue stream, includes fees for services such as "Promoted Listings", payment processing, and purchases of shipping labels through the platform; while Other revenue includes fees received from third-party payment processors.[9]
