I make all my own greetings cards and, if I do say so myself, they're pretty good. Just wondering (since I'm absolutely skint!) if anyone knows about the practicalities of selling them?
Thanks in advance for any info.

Find a local craft shop?

Can we see some pictures of them?
Finding a local craft shop or even a small local supermarket that sells cards is probably your best bet. I used to work in a branch of Spar and we sold some made by a local woman.
However, I didn't think they were that great (I also note that we didn't sell very many) - mainly because I make cards myself too and those tacky fake gold-leaf/silver effect stickers she used to spell out 'happy birthday' or whatever look really bad. Hence why I asked if we can see pictures of yours, because I think cards that use those look really tacky. Hopefully when I see pictures of your cards I'll discover that you don't use them, and we'll all be happy.

You could set up your own website for around £20 inc domain and install your own e-commerce software to sell them.
