    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.

    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.
