I started up my Etsy shop for TeePee Creations a couple of months ago now and it is doing so much better than I thought it would! I have had lots of orders, especially for Christmas, the favourite being my Alternate 12 Days of Christmas…
and I even had a repeat buyer coming back for a second print which is great! 😀 I am so happy with it so far!!
Last week I went pitching my cards to 3 different shops with samples, business cards and a leaflet to hand. It went okay, 2 of the shops said they do not buy in cards but 1 has taken some samples and a business card and has said she will get in contact with me in the new year 🙂
I also had my first custom order on my Etsy page, I had a request to make the ‘Silent Knight’ card from my Christmas puns collection a bit more personal as they wanted it to be for someone with the last name Knight. After discussing with her we decided on doing “Silent Knight… Holy Knight” (adding a sketch of a holey knight on the inside of the card and then the greeting “May your Christmas be as bright as you make my knights!” She was so happy with it so I am buzzing about this as I really enjoyed working with someone to make a more personal order.
After this, I then decided to add it as an option on all my cards for an extra 20p to have a personalised message printed on the inside.
Lastly I created this card for my brothers birthday this past week the other day inspired by his birthday present I got him (a giant Italian pepper grinder as he loves black pepper!) and thought I could start doing this more to help me come up with more unique ideas, so for Christmas all my family are going to get Christmas cards with a clue to what their present is!
