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.
Can you keep a secret? “Taking a cue from a certain celebrity wedding, this year couples are saying ‘I do’ with covert messages incorporated into their attire and accessories,” says Dayna. Whether you stamp a custom message on a tie bar, sew a sentimental patch into the lining of your gown, or opt for matching rings that come together to form the letters of your choice, these ultra-personalized touches prove that sometimes the most special details are the ones your guests can’t see.

Marketing and promoting the business, creating new designs, sourcing products, and administration are the other aspects of running a business that will eat into the time available. You will need to allow for over half your time to be spent on the business side of things. You will also need to think about how you will handle the business if you decide to take a vacation, if you get ill, or managing extremely busy periods. This is why good planning is essential. It will help you avoid any nasty surprises later on.
Whew, it feels like we just barely made it through the Christmas holiday season, but now Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I made these ninja printable Valentine’s Day cards at the request of my seven-year-old son who asked if I would design “some valentines for boys – with no glittery hearts or love and all that girly stuff!” After reminding him that valentines cards are for Valentine’s Day and all, he finally relented and let me add a few hearts to the cards…as long as they weren’t glittery!

My granddaughter starts kindergarten this year and she has sight words she'll need to know. We made her a set of flash cards with all 300 of her sight words for the year. I needed to get them done and shipped off so she could get a head start and they were here before I knew it. Easy to use, did a mail merge and printed them all out with minor corrections, mostly of the mea culpa variety.

This is a fabulous Vintage Printable Bees print! This print comes from a Circa 1840 Natural History Bees Book. Featured above are three Beautiful Bees with very scientific names! I looked up Euglossa… and they are apparently also known as Orchid Bees. I love the rustic style of this print and the creamy monochromatic background ! I think this would look fabulous mixed in with your Spring or Summer Decor, perhaps under a glass cloche or behind the panes of an Old Window! You can find a similar print from the same book HERE.
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.
On March 3, 2015, Etsy announced that it had filed for a $100 million USD IPO.[6][72] As of 2015, Etsy generated transactions worth US$1.93 billion on its platform, which has 54 million members.[73] Etsy went public on April 16, 2015. The company's valuation was $1.8 billion and raised $237 million in IPO proceeds.[74] Less than a month later, Etsy stock dropped more than 8%. The stock closed at $30 on its first day of trading on April 16 and dropped down to $20.32 as of May 11.[75]

Cover Verse: An Irish Blessing May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face And the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Inside Verse: God bless you with the joy of His presence and the gift of His love on St. Patrick's Day and always.
Beth made a gorgeous journal using Letter to Rose printable kit. She paired the images with delicate laces for a very shabby chic junk journal. Enjoy the photos of her journal and draw inspiration from the unique way she has of combining elements on her pages. Beth has a flip-though of this journal on her YouTube channel.

I forgot your birthday And I'm feeling bad I forgot your birthday and now I'm so sad. I'm a silly, silly poo head Lawd, I'm a silly poo poo head I'm a silly poo poo head And I'm wishing I was dead.

Oh, pretty please. I'm a silly poo poo head. And I'm wishing I was dead. I forgot your birthday. Sorry about that. It won't happen again. Hope it was happy...!
In March 2010, Kalin said that the company is profitable and "plans to go public, though not until at least next year."[69] Financial statements required to be filed by Etsy in order to go public show that due to reinvestment of annually increasing gross profits in marketing, product development, and management, the company has not reported a net profit as of 2015.[70]

Before starting a handmade card business that uses artwork from another designer, be it in a stamp form or ready printed, check whether this artwork comes with a commercial use license or if you have to pay for the licensed image (once or every time it's used)? If you do have to pay for the image, make sure that cost gets factored into your pricing formula as you determine the per-unit cost of your cards.
Cover Verse: There are in the end three things that last: faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 Inside Verse: Though your heart must hold deep sadness right now, may it also hold the blessings of the love that will always be a part of you... Praying that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit, and carry you through this time of sadness.
Keep in mind that there are already many handmade greetings cards available. To be really successful, you need to offer something a little different. In many areas, the market is swamped with handmade cards. An example of a niche is a "green" handmade card business where all products used are recycled, sustainably sourced, or some portion of proceeds benefit ecology projects around the world. When you are thinking about a niche, a great place to start is to think about the things that inspire you or make you smile. 
A couple of years ago, I shared this post about an incredible resource for printing vintage botanical art prints – Botanicus – the free, Web-based encyclopedia of digitized botanical literature from the Missouri Botanical Garden Library.  When I found that resource, I couldn’t believe how many incredible and totally free images were just out there on the web to be printed and framed.  It’s a budget decorator’s dream!  I really didn’t think it could get any better – BUT IT JUST DID!

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]

There is an overwhelming amount of items you can download on this website so it might be a good idea if you have an idea of what you are looking for so you can type it in the search button. I typed in Christmas for my most recent search. There are a ton of botanicals if you want to do a gallery wall of botanicals too…I know that is popular right now)
Quick: Think about the most memorable wedding you’ve ever been to. What comes to mind? Was it the bride’s stunning bespoke gown? The best man’s poignant, precise toast? Or maybe it’s the favor you took home at the end of the night that so effectively encapsulated the spirit of the just-married duo? “In 2019 weddings will showcase the couple’s individuality in truly unforgettable ways,” says Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. A few of the top tools for brides and grooms looking to make a lasting impression today? New twists on ceremony attire, one-of-a-kind reception decor, and practical-meets-personalized keepsakes they’ll eagerly tuck into their clutches and suit pockets. Read on to discover the top eight ways brides and grooms are showcasing their unique style through their weddings this year, and get ready to start swooning.
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.
Etsy is popular as a side-business,[19] as well as a place to buy goods made from recycled and upcycled materials,[20] along with less expensive or more unusual versions of mass-produced items.[21] The unique nature of many of the items for sale is part of their appeal to some shoppers.[22][23] Product photos on Etsy tend to be editorial or artistic instead of commercial catalog style.[24] Sellers can add tags to their products to help buyers find them,[25] and buyers can choose to search for items available locally.[26] Etsy staffers publish lists of featured items.[27]
A variety of products are sold on Etsy, including arts supplies, handmade products, and vintage pieces. Vintage pieces can only be listed if they are a minimum of 20 years old. In order to sell products on Etsy, users must create a username and have the option to create a shop name. The username cannot be changed once created. Since online signup appears for every region internationally, Etsy provides a global shipping feature.[11]
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 March 2011, Etsy "introduced a Facebook-style social networking system called People Search...to help buyers and sellers connect with each other and become friends". By doing so, Etsy made any past purchase with feedback easily searchable, which caused many complaints. Etsy then made changes to the site to better guard information regarding users' purchases.[68]
When a buyer views a product, they can choose to view the positive percentage feedback of each seller to determine the reliability of the shop. Once a buyer finds a product they would like to buy, they click "Add to Cart", and that product is added to their virtual "Shopping Cart". The buyer may then either continue shopping, or purchase the selected item. In order to purchase items, buyers do not have to have an account with Etsy, and can instead register with a Facebook or Google account.

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.


Good news for all engaged Friends fanatics: “Over the last few years, ‘90s trends have resurfaced in both the fashion and home decor realms, and now they’re taking hold for weddings,” says Dayna. Think classic slip dresses, dazzling rhinestone accessories, reception-ready fanny packs, and—a nod to everyone’s favorite old-school hair clip—a butterfly-adorned bridal headpiece. So whether you were rooting for Ross and Rachel from the get-go (they were on a break!), or more invested in Monica and Chandler’s covert affair, celebrate your own love story surrounded by a slew of throwback touches straight out of Central Perk.
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’m so sorry about that and yes, it’s because you have Yahoo email, they have been blocking my emails along with many other bloggers. I’ve been working on a fix for this for weeks now and I think we finally have it corrected!! Hopefully you will have an email in your box from me today, in about half and hour our so. If you don’t, please let me know! I really want to get this fixed for everyone!

The presentation of the cards—the packaging—helps make a successful handmade card business. A card that is neatly presented in a cellophane envelope looks more professional and can command a higher price than one that is unpackaged. Presenting cards in some form of packaging stops cards from becoming dirty or dog-eared and it also gives the ideal opportunity for further marketing. A label on the back with your phone number or website address could help you solicit further orders. Remember to consider shipping and packaging when factoring the costs per unit in your pricing formula.
