I would definitely start your business online. This is the best way to test your products and find your market without the massive upfront costs associated with opening a store. Just recently one of the largest greeting card stores in Delaware, Coccia is shutting its doors after 35 years in the business. Back in February 2010, market research firm Mintel reported that the $11 billion greeting card business was being bombarded by new online competition. Its been staving off threats by introducing creative new cards -- think of the ones with music built-in, or others that allow purchasers to record a personal greeting. But the industry has been merely treading water for a couple of years now after strong growth earlier this decade, the report said.
What are some good card designing software applications? There are many great greeting card creation programs for your greeting card business on the market right now. Hallmark has several software packages out there The Print Shop and Broderbund are both respected names in printing software and have some great packages for printing greeting cards. Just about everyone enjoys receiving a greeting card. Nearly, 9 out of 10 Americans say they look forward to receiving cards. Exchanging greeting cards is one of the most widely accepted ways of expressing how important someone is to us. As a matter of fact, in the US consumers purchase and exchange 7 billion greeting cards each year. Thats an average of 30 greeting card purchases per household.
When I receive a greeting card I feel important because I know someone is thinking of me. I usually hold on to the card for a few days and display it so I may look at it. Then I have to make the decision whether to discard or keep the card. Like many of us who have limited storage space, I have to be selective about what I keep. Unfortunately, most times I find myself throwing out the greeting card. I usually have negative feelings about having to do this. The thoughtful card sender spent time looking for the right card, and many times the card is very attractive and I hate to just throw it out. An average person receives 20 greeting cards per year and I bet many have similar feelings about discarding attractive greeting cards.
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.
