The market for Christmas collectibles is actually on the rise, according to Terry Kovel, co-author of the Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide. "All of the holidays have gotten more popular in collecting," she tells GoodHousekeeping.com. "And the most popular one obviously is Christmas." Vintage cards in good condition can fetch about $10 to $50 apiece, she says, but particularly valuable ones can shoot up into the three- or even four-figure range.
Identifying your target market is key. Your target market is the group of people who will buy your cards. Getting the word out about your product is your marketing plan. Knowing your target market will help you define your prices and determine where to market your cards. For example, if you sell cards which will appeal to hipsters, your target market is going to be very different than if you are selling cards for a kid's birthday.
As of December 31, 2014, Etsy had 54 million users registered as members,[4] and the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods connected 1.4 million sellers with 19.8 million buyers.[5] At the end of 2014, Etsy had 685 employees,[6] and had 29 million items listed.[7] In 2014, Etsy had total sales, or Gross Merchandise Sales (GMS), of US$1.93 billion on the platform.[4] Of this, 36.1% came from purchases made on mobile devices and 30.9% was generated outside the US.[4]

I love to cook and decided that I need a recipe card box out of sheer hatred for the add-filled, biographical oubliettes that food websites have become. I'm not using microsoft word, so i didnt even bother trying to download the templates, but I just set the page format to center on the measurements of the cards and everything printed predictably. My printer had no trouble with the card stock and I didn't even have to change the settings, which is great because I totally forgot to check that.
Think about the product that you are selling. Put together a product development plan that shows how versatile your idea is. Can it grow? Does that product spawn other products or idea that can potentially sell? While simply making some cards and putting them up for sale might prove successful, you will likely need more than the initial product. A product development plan will help take out the guesswork of how to make products that sell.
Never again will partygoers accidentally leave their favors behind when they head home at the end of the night. “This year, brides and grooms are sending guests away with gifts thoughtfully selected to be utilized and enjoyed in their everyday lives,” says Dayna. Because in an age of increasing attention to clutter (thank you, Marie Kondo), functional is the name of the game, and the most popular picks of the moment are the ones designed to be put to use—or even consumed, like these petite, personalized servings of coffee and honey.

I specifically left the themes on the date night cards fairly generic so that you could use a little creativity with your dates. So if you picked something like “Go Bowl,” it doesn’t necessarily have to mean go bowling. It could mean going out for noodle bowls for dinner, going and creating bowls at a paint your own pottery studio, or really anything you take it to mean.

As co-owners of The Land of Lost Content, the world’s largest archive of 20th Century popular culture, we’re always thinking of new, exciting ways to make Britain’s rich cultural heritage relevant to the modern consumer. Our greeting card collection with Hallmark does exactly that, and features images from the 50s, 60s and 70s in a 12-part collection.

I used this product with the Avery template 5388 from the Avery website and using Microsoft Word to print 3 x 5 cards and it worked great. The sheets are sturdy enough to take two passes through my Brother laser printer, printing first on one side and then manually turning the sheet over to print on the other side. After printing, the cards are easily removed from the sheet and have very smooth borders which look quite professional.

A little bit about this print. The Christmas Carol is my husband’s favorite Christmas movie/book of all time. Every year around Christmas we are forced asked to watch every version of the movie. Some of my kids like this tradition, others do not (I fall into this category). But it’s becoming a tradition and when I saw this book in the digital library I had to use it.

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.
In February 2008, trouble at eBay, including a strike by some dissatisfied sellers, brought speculation that Etsy could be an increasing competitor.[55] At the same time, however, some Etsy sellers expressed discontentment with how Etsy was handling complaints about stores.[56] At the time, a comparison of the two websites included complaints that on Etsy, items are difficult to find, the interface "feels slow", and the buying and selling process is United States-centric.[57] Other reviewers enjoyed using Etsy's specialized search options,[58][59] including the "Shop Local" tool.[60]

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!
Etsy's main office is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn, and it has hosted open crafting classes in the Etsy Labs.[35] The site's technology, customer support, marketing, PR, business, and communications teams operate out of this office. Etsy Labs has a workspace that provides equipment and donated materials, where members gather to make items, take and teach workshops, and attend special events.[36] Etsy also has an office in Berlin.[37] In April 2012, Etsy announced that it was taking steps to hire more women engineers to improve the gender balance of its team, as a website with majority women users but few women engineers.[38] By 2019, 30 percent of Etsy's engineers identified as "women or non-binary", and over 30 percent were people of color.[39]

50) Vintage Bathtub Printable. This fantastic vintage bathtub printable is from an 1897 catalog filled with plumbing supplies and fixtures. The black and white bathtub has claw feet and stylish stripes on it. There is a huge shower head and some lovely ceramic tile on the wall. Such a classic looking image, perfect to print and hang on a bathroom wall.


As with editing tools, Macs have built-in sharing features you can access through your Apple account. When you save a file to your computer, you can use Finder to connect to social media or iCloud and share your projects from there. Because of this, most Mac greeting card applications don’t include features that let you share your finished cards to social media directly from the software.
In a lot of ways, these printable Christmas cards can be better than a box of them you'd buy at the store. Many of these printable Christmas cards can be customized with a personal greeting, message, card style, and some even let you add photos before printing. Put in a custom holiday newsletter before mailing, and you've got the perfect Christmas card.
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.
Recognizable cartoon figures like Snoopy, Mickey Mouse, and Felix the Cat also have a specific market, and then there's the big guy himself. Santa's look and demeanor has changed a lot over the years, but he's remained popular among buyers. Before Coca-Cola helped popularize our notion of Santa today, he often wore a green coat, or had elfish features instead more jolly ones.
