Can you make money from selling your own hand made Greeting Cards?

No I have never tried this before..
You can make money by selling anything if you put your mind to it. How successful you could be depends on you and how much you put into it. I have never tried it personally, but I know somebody who sold homemade items. There are a lot of things you can try and really the sky is the limit. First off you will want to get the word out that you are selling them and you want them to be a decent price. Also you will want some sort of game plan for your 'business.' For example are you going to do something like hallmark and have cards pre-made so people can just stop in and pick them up off of some sort of stand or are you doing special orders, or both. Try getting a booth at a local or nearby craft fair to get your product out. Street fairs, art streets, any of these types of things are good places to start! You can also attempt to sell them broader than locally, but the best place to start is local. Make up a business plan because you do not want to go into it blind and do not be afraid to use social media sites as well as friends, neighbors, and family... you will need support and you have to start somewhere. Most importantly though... you have to be available for people to get the cards!!! If you get your name out but you are not available nobody will buy them. Make it work for you and I am sure you can do it (especially if they are good!) :-) Good Luck!!
Apart from local promotion, you can also start online. Build a free website and add the different cards you make for the people to see. Then give a local ad, and tell your friends and relatives to have a look at your website.
If event like craft show try booket your booth or try selling on website. Good Luck.
i heard etsy, amazon could bring you good sales. Never try out yet
If ONE want to make a living in the handmade card business, make it scalable.

There is so much lost sentiments with mailing since the email era.So much has gone virtual to save the "trees". Do many people still purchase and send greeting Cards?

More and more people are sending greetings online via email or using electronic cards or social media pages or even mobile phones. Have you stopped sending cards the old fashioned way?

Do you sometimes miss snail-mail, such as postcards, greeting cards and hand-written letters?Don't you think these non digital messages were much more charming than our modern e-greeting cards? While I am all for saving paper I think this might be the wrong end to start saving on...

Two days ago Target showed the world that it is focusing on diversity and inclusivity. Will this be good business for Target or Not?
