Self Published Greetings Cards

I decided to bite the bullet and have four of my original designs printed as A6 greetings cards.  I am really pleased with how they have turned out.  I chose a good quality 300gsm watercolour style paper and white envelopes, so they look very classy.  They are available from my etsy shop, website, Cambridge Contemporary Crafts and I will have them at my Open Studios next month.

Whenever possible I'd prefer to licence my designs for other people to produce into products.  The main reasons for this is that it's a big financial outlay, much time has to be spent on researching the right manufacturer, getting quotes and samples.  Also space has to be found for storage and time has to be spent on packaging, promotion and distribution.  However there are also benefits; being able to specify the product to my own taste and having a product I'm really proud of is a great feeling.
