  • Talking of Ebay...

    Hi Everyone

    After plucking up the courage to approach some businesses about selling my cards I was really disappointed that nobody seemed interested. I rang a few places after leaving samples and they said the main thing they didnt like was the ' stick on writing' (peel offs to us cardmakers!)

    After a long search I finally found an alternative on ebay. You buy the cards and they come with a ready made foiled greeting.Low and behold I went back to a few places and i am now selling at two venues and they are selling at £2.95!!!! yipee. I think this was down to a more professional finish.

    I have been getting them ever since so just wanted to share it with everyone. I think the ebay shop link is www clares-cards.co.uk but if you typed in hot foiled cards Im sure it will come up.

    I have just ordered some Christmas ones so fingers crossed.

    Bye for now.

        Well done!!

        I, too, am not keen on peel offs although I have used them but sometimes I went to the bother of printing on the card (takes an age to place the text !!). The foil printing sounds great!

        Ebay has so much different stuff that can be hard to find anywhere else.
        I buy my office supplies (envelopes, etc) from ebay although the guy I buy from has now set up his own business and I started to buy direct. Even when I look around they still seem to be the cheapest!

        I was looking at pewter tankards on ebay for a present for someone and found one that can be engraved - I'll definitely get it, perfect. Now where else and how much time could it have taken me to look for these! Hadn't even thought of the engraving bit!!
