New cards and big steps

Jammie Dodger card

I’ve made some big steps this past couple of weeks. I feel a bit like Jammie Dodger there, peeking out at the big world. I’ve often said my yardstick of business success would be when I could order hundreds of a new product without the fear that no-one would buy it. I’m still not past that with brand new products – even recently, I only initially made 4 Spooky-Wooky Badge Sets, and ordered 10 Volcano Cards – but I am getting better at ordering large amounts of already-popular products.

New cards

I’ve been working with a new printing company to get new and improved versions of my cards done in bulk. The ones I have are fine but the size is non-standard and these new ones are A6, full colour inside and out, and give me full control of all 4 card sides so I can add my own logo and other fun things. The more wholesale orders I get, and with plans to do a trade show next year, it’s becoming more important that I have more product in stock and that it stands up next to more established companies’ work. So ordering a box of 250 wasn’t too scary.

My favourite thing about these new cards is getting to pick out coloured envelopes to match each design. Fun times! The all-new Jammie Dodger card with matching red envelope is now in the shop, and other designs will be following over the next few months as they run out / I get wholesale orders / I have money. And maybe next time I design a new card, I’ll manage to order 250 right away and not secretly worry I’ll have 249 of them sitting under my bed 5 years later.
