  • Selling Wedding Invites/cards

    I want to start selling - any suggestions? Is e-bay auction a better option than an ebay shop or a website?
    Thanks

    we never had much luck on e.bay
    we started selling to friends , sold a few on ebay which then lead to people buying privately from us
    we've got a website and had our second customer find us through google this week
    if you're a member on any forums and do set up a website then use it in your signature
    are you on facebook ?? plug away on facebook , twitter etc
    its just a case of getting your name out there and getting people to recommend you

      Thanks for the reply. I never thought of face book - will give it a try. Like a lot of folk I suppose I want to earn some money with as little outlay as possible. I have not had any luck so far with ebay and thought it was me!. Will look at other ways too. Cheers

        I've set up a facebook page just for my cards , don't know if it does any good but it can't do any harm can it , keep putting photos on when I make new cards etc

          I think that attending wedding fayres is a good thing to do as you meet people face to face and they can actually see and touch your invitations. Most people are then looking for a website so that they can order through that when it's actually time for them to order their stationery. Also offer to do free or very cheap wedding stationery for friends on the basis that they recommend you to all their friends! It has worked for me!

          Hope that helps.

              Try out my other suggestion then. If they pay for the materials, then you will make the invitations for free. Then it doesn't cost you anything but your time. Worth a go I would say.

                Brilliant advice! Offering to make their wedding stationery as their wedding present also works well - they get something they need rather than a toaster and you get some free advertising - win/win situation!

                I used to make and sell wedding stationery and never 'advertised' as such although it was very much on a part-time basis as I also had a full time job. Got my first order from someone who received an invitation to our own wedding and wanted me to make their stationery. In turn someone saw their invitation and contacted me...and so on

                    There are a couple of ebay type website but purely for handmade items which have free options currently.

                    www.madeitmyself.com and www.artfire.com

                    I have shops on both but my personal preference is artfire. It does have a pay version, but you can set up shop for free to try it out.

                    Might be worth looking at.

                    Best of luck,

                    Val
