Exciting news! I have sold my first handmade greeting card to one of my very supportive friends. I just did this doodle whilst on the train the other day and happened to share it online, which lead to a little commission for my friend... just shows how important it is to market yourself online!
I don't currently have the money to send off for cards to be printed off in the most professional manner, but I think I did a pretty good job of creating something professional looking using a simple printer, double sided tape and some card blanks which I bought from a craft shop. I also added some tiny gemstones and a cellophane wrapping for extra professionalism and I love how it turned out.
I must have hundreds of doodles which are just sitting in sketchbooks doing nothing and I think that greetings cards could be a really great way to start using them to make a little bit of money here and there.
If anybody would like me to use one of my drawings or an element of one of my fabric designs to make them a customised greetings card, or whether you have a specific idea or theme you would like me to draw for, then please let me know as I would love to do it!
Also, if anyone has any tips for where to get smaller runs of cards printed wholesale then that would be great!
