An outlet for my cards



I finally plucked up the courage to ask the guys who own Vintage Brew if they would allow me to leave some of my cards at their cafe/Bistro to try and sell. Proceeds from any sales I get will go to charity which for the next twelve months is one close to my heart - The Dogs Trust.  I was so pleased they are going to help me with this but of course now I'm anxious as to whether I will get any sales.  I also now need to price them and I'm not very good at putting a price on what I make - any tips?

Linda, I would be very pleased to buy some of your cards, if you would send me £10 worth plus postage I would be very happy to transfer you the £10 for the dogs trust and if I may call on you again in a few more months for some more that would also be very lovely.

I have always found it's not the price you sell them at, it's the cost of making them, there is a limit to how much you can charge, so the best way to make money is to ensure you don't use expensive bits and bobs.

I think I agree with Marlene. Think about how much the card cost to make, then determine a price that ensures you have a profit. Since you are donating the profits, and not using this as a business, I would probably recommend charging less rather than more, so you sell more, rather than fewer. Does that make sense?

What a lovely new header pic of you when your blog popped up.
Good luck with the card sales, i'm sure they will sell very well.
