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.
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.
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.

There are countless DIY projects out there involving maps and those are simply in addition to just displaying them! I am a sucker for maps. I have always loved to travel and with every generation traveling a bit more than the one before, I think maps will only become increasing popular. Because of what people call travellust. So what do you do when you can’t travel as much as you would like? Just stare at maps, and make plans for one day. That’s what I do. We previously shared a very popular collection of vintage map printables, so we decided to add a few more of our favorites to your stash. Where are you traveling next?
