  • Anyone interested - Business Card Swop?

    I saw this on the etsy forum and thought it was a good idea. I wondered if anyone would be interested in getting involved in a business card swop?

    The way it would work is that you would send me a number of your cards and once I have them from everyone, I then send then out to everyone else involved. So when that person sells something, they enclose a copy of each business card when they send the items.

    I would have to work something out re: postage, as would cost me a fortune to pay to send them all out myself, but wondered if anyone would be up for this? Names to me please, plus ideas of how it should / could work.

      This is a great idea. I'm just waiting for some new cards but i'm very interested. As well as putting the cards in parcels we could put them in carrier bags when selling things at craft shows?

      If we get a number of peole interested we could just post our cards to each other and pay our own postage rather than you having to sort them all yourself?

          I would be interested. I could put them on the stand when i do the craft fairs, and later I hope to run some workshops, so could have them around then too.

                Etsy is fantastic! It's a bit like ebay but you buy handcrafted things at a fixed price. Don't look though unless you are willing to part with your hard earned money!! There is a link to my shop on Etsy in my signature to give you an idea of what it's all about.
                Kate - re the business card swap - how many were you thinking roughly? As I've started adding material to mine I've got to plan ahead and get the bonda web and iron out!

                  How many???

                  Hmmm, not sure. If we go with each of us sending the cards to each other, what do you all think is the right number to send each person?

                    Hey!
                    Don't leave me out, this sounds really great....I want in, just let me know all the details.
                    I know nothing about Etsy, is it free to join? and does it cost loads to put stuff up?

                      I'm new to this forum and we will be doing our first craft fair in June but this business card idea sounds like a good thing.
                      Count us in if you take it forward.

                          Nope, not too late at all. I still waiting for people to say if they're interested (to give everyone a chance) and then we'll swop details. I will set a deadline of the end of this month and then will get started

                            Maybe instead of going to the cost of actually sending business cards why not maybe make a flyer, or two, with a copy of everyone's business cards on.
                            Then the list can be e-mailed to anyone interested and updated as need be.
                            Each person could then print off the flyers as and when necessary.
                            That should considerably cut down the cost of actually sending cards as the cards would only need to be sent once and then made into a flyer.

                              That's a good idea! I would be happy with that and I already have a flyer done. I can leave it up to the individual - those who want to email flyers will exchange emails and do so, but those who still want to post business cards we can still set up an address exchange.

                              So, deadline is 30th April and please state which you would like to do
