CONGRATULATIONS!!! my it be the first of many for you.

Re pricing,what size is it? Most of mine are A5 size and personalised.I started selling those for £1.50, but everyone said I was under charging, so now I charge £1.50 for an A6 size card and £2 for the larger,tall or square cards. I do give 10% of that to the Downs Syndrome group I attend for dd.
Do a quick tally up of how much it cost for material to make sure you cover that,and try to judge a price depending on how long you took to make the card.

I don't sell that many, so perhaps someone else will be along to help you!

Well done again!

Yorkiegirl - Do you have any time at the moment to make another one? I need a get well soon card for a little lad aged 5 years who has broken his arm. He loves trains, so I think that would be a good theme. I realise that you'd have to post it to me for me to send him. I would be happy to pay £2 or whatever for the card plus the postage. What do you think? If you're game, I'll CAT you. Oh, blast. Just remembered that my e-mail isn't behaving atm as ntl have problems with the network. A few people on MN have my address, that might work. Anyway...you might not want to do it! What do you think?

well done you.....the better you get the quicker you will become and the better your cards will be....so then you can charge more for them....I sell mine for £2.50 to friends and family....£3.00 to anyone else. When I first started I would give them away....amazed that anyone thought they were any good!!!!

Yorkiegirl - Thanks for your post. I've sent you an e-mail. It appears to have gone. The system is still playing up, so let me know if you don't receive it. Thanks.

Dh's work colleague's 40th, eh? Hmmm. What are his hobbies? You can ask us to brainstorm some ideas. I usually come up with daft ones, but then they can be toned down and made workable by someone else!

well done YG!! you'll be suprised how many word by mouth you'll start getting. I'm just the same when it comes to pricing so will be using the advice too.

Dior-- thats brilliant!

I've sold one too, though more of a "poster" thing than a card, but along the same lines!!! Much more enjoyable doing it for money!!

Yorkiegirl - The card is great and I'm sure he'll be really pleased with it! Thanks again!
