To get your greeting cards into stores you will need to do a great deal of cold calling and legwork. Design a portfolio of your cards, a price list of costs and contact the buyer for each store. Small stores may be the way to start and then when you go to larger established or national chains you can show them the success that you have had in other stores. What does the printing cost? When going to a print shop or having them printed by an online printing company you get a cheaper cost per card with larger orders. It depends on where you go and how many cards you want printed. You can also get a discounted price if you are not in a hurry for your order. Cards can cost approximately $200 for 250 cards at a printing shop. Printing cards at home can work out to be quite expensive due to costs of ink for the printer you have, though again if you buy in bulk you can get a reasonable price. Dont be afraid to shop around.
Theyre art - and theyre fun: sure, regular cards are art, too. But custom greeting cards showcase your ability to think of a design, select something thats perfect for the occasion, and send it to the perfect recipient. More than just expressing yourself, custom greeting cards are a way to express your unique taste and special skill in spotting just the right kind of design. They show that you really care: nothing shows caring like just the right thing, and custom greeting cards are often exactly that. Instead of just selecting from preexisting options, you can look for the custom greeting cards that are exactly the right fit for exactly your situation. A card from a big name-brand company shows that you know when youre supposed to give someone a card; custom greeting cards show that you know exactly how to pick the perfect card for that moment.
According to a dictionary, a greeting card is an illustrated and folded card featuring an expression of friendship and/or other sentiment. That description doesnt really show the thought or feeling behind giving or receiving a card. According to what I have found, the history of greeting cards goes back a long ways. The ancient Chinese exchanged messages of good will to celebrate their New Year and in early Egypt they sent greetings on papyrus scrolls. Papyrus scrolls were made from the Pith or the center of the Papyrus plant which use to be abundant in the Nile Delta of Egypt. The Germans were known to have printed New Years greetings from woodcuts as early as the 1400.
Overall, greeting cards are a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them. They are a wonderful way to show your feelings and speak your mind without really saying a word, especially in those hard to find words moments where the card just speaks for you. You have many choices according to the occasion such as birthday and anniversary as well as a card for every holiday out there. There are cards for every occasion and every personality, so take advantage of them.
