    I went to have a look at your survey, but was only able to answer one of the questions.
    You don't have an option in the first question for people to say they don't buy any greeting cards each year - I make mine and have enough materials in the house to keep me going for many years yet.

    Sorry.

          I looked at it but didn't complete because I figure this was not aimed at other cardmakers.

          I get the idea behind keeping surveys short and to the point but I'm actually not too sure how useful the responses will be ...for one thing when I did buy cards the amount I was prepared to pay would depend on the type,. style, size, quality of the card. Another issue is that unless you sell mainly to other carfters, you may get a more balanced set of answers - especially on pricing - if you ask non crafters... the general buying public are not always as up on or as appreciative of the cost and work behind the finished product.

          Would love to know the outcome of your survey....and I wish you luck

            I have posted on twitter too so have got feedback from a wider range of people, others who aren't crafters. I didn't expect people who make theor own to complete it so no worries!!

                I do sometimes make cards but not much at the moment.

                If you want to know how personalisation options work on PayPal, have a quick look on my website - I've only used the free (well, not quite free - you pay commission) PayPal option but people can buy using an add to cart button and add their personalisation options. It's not difficult to set up but it is a bit faffy and time-consuming to do a lot at a time.

                It's a lot easier for customers than emailing, although when things get complicated email's a great back up!

                Very few of my customers choose to phone an order through but it's a useful option for those who are not computer savvy.

                And face-to-face is great, but it does seriously limit who you can sell to.

                  Thanks Wendy, I will have a look at your site. So far I have used face to face - by taking orders for cards at fairs etc and through my website via email requests. But upgrading my site to have a facility to buy online is the next step.

                  Thanks for the inpur everyone!

                    I've just completed your survey. I don't make cards, but do tend to buy other handmade cards.
