Since my last post, I had SO many sales for Valentines Day! It was great, I was so happy and the few days before it were a bit manic but amazing as I have now made 75 sales this year!!! Which matches my sales figures exactly from last year and it’s only a month and 3 weeks in!!! Even after Valentines, I have still been getting steady sales! Just shows that all the effort I am putting in is really paying off.
The sale that brought me to my 75th sale as well was, of course, my longest running, first created and most popular design, Winging my liner like I’m winging my life! I have sold about 80 stickers of this on Red Bubble alone and now 3 prints of it!
Best Seller of February – I Lava You! (25 from this month!)
I have been marketing a few of my existing creations towards Mothers Day, including card, stickers and prints and have added one new design (Wineing) and edited the Football Valentines card to work for Mothers and Fathers Day.
I am also going to continue to create definition themed cards, I have 2 more lined up for drawing – Unbeerable (The feeling you get when there is no beer left in the fridge) and Whin-gin (The noise made when there is no Gin left in the cupboard).
My next avenue I am developing is packaging for presents. I want to get more use out of my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine so have been designing gift bags and tags this week. After asking on my Instagram page which design people preferred the most and getting feedback from friends and family, I decided to go for a taller patterned bag with a hole for ribbon and a tag. This net can be folded flat for packaging unlike the other design that has 2 layers – this would only be able to have the design on one side to fold flat. The taller bag is cheaper and easier for me to produce and post meaning I can charge a lot less for it in on my shop.
Which design do you prefer?
Over the next few weeks I am going to develop these bags and tags with my existing illustrations, photograph them with their matching tags and confetti, then add them as a listing of bag+tag together with a confetti upgrade option.
