Exclamation Help! I just got asked to sell cards....

Someone who owns a local flower shop saw one of my bridesmaids cards and approached me to sell cards in her shop. I've never sold cards and have been leery since (I think) you can't really put a "price" on homemade stuff... but she insisted that I make around 20 to try in her shop.

I guess I have a few questions... what do you think about this? Have any of you sold your cards? What kind of price range to do you think I should ask for (considering she'll tack on something as well to make a profit I'm sure and that will end up being the retail price)? And lastly, if I do these 20, what types of cards do you think are appropriate for a flower shop?

Any input would be appreciated!!!!!

As long as you know you can't use SU stamps for those cards -- you will have to use some stamps that have an angel policy that allows you to sell to a store or to a business for resale.

Even if it is those little cards with floral arrangments, I was told that was a big no no because it would be purchased by the business, even if they weren't being officially "sold" to the customer in the store.

Cool, thanks for the heads up.

With that being said, are there still any other suggestions/answers to my questions?

If she is wanting you to sell them to her "wholesale" I'm not sure you could do it- the "retail" price would be HUGE.

I would say a simple card (two-three layers, a few brads/eyelets, maybe ribbon, but no extraordinary technique) would be $2. More extravagant, up to $3.50.

I have taken some of my cards to work and sold them ... last year at Christmas ... and they sold for $3.00 per card. They werent plain, but not super fancy. Guess it depends on how much work goes into your cards ...

congrats!!

I'd start by visiting some florist shops and do a little market research. What size are they selling and for what price??

You'll want sympathy, birthday, anniversary, valentine's, thinking of you, get well, and blank. I would think that the florist should know. It is hard to make a huge profit on this because you will be buying supplies retail and then the florist shop is going to mark up the price. Regardless of the size you select, I would sit down and make 10 cards. Add up the cost of every single supply -- don't forget the envelopes, adhesive, etc. Time how long it takes you to make the cards.

Materials + time + profit = your charge to the florist. Good luck!

ps. make sure you have clear plastic sleeves for these cards. they'll get handled a lot and you don't want them to get ruined by folks who are just looking!

Good luck!

I thought that the idea behind SU's "angel policy" was that to sell cards using their stamps, one had to stamp the back with the "stampin' up" logo.

I am fairly certain that cards using Stampin' Up stamps, cannot be sold in permanent retail establishements, period. I had the same offer posed to me, but after doing research, had to deny because of their strict policy. Someone please tell me if I am wrong on this. Thanks!

I am by no means a demo or anything but I am almost certain that you cannot sell your cards in or to a permanent retail establishment or website. The SU hand made stamps for the back along with their angel policy, allows someone to sell their cards at seasonal things such as crafts sales etc.

That was my understanding at least.

Yup, that's right...no permanent retail locations and no Internet sales. Selling at fairs, work, or from your home is okay as long as it has the copyright stamp on the back.

With all of this said, why not do what Joan said, take in the cards (with the stamp on the back) and sell them to the owner of the shop. In other words, you are not doing it on consignment. It would be as if you sold a stack to a friend at work. What she does with them after that, is not your problem. After all, you didn't approach her. She approached you. If she becomes your best customer, great!

I sell my cards for $3 each to friends. The fancier ones, say using the new long open ended envelopes I sell for $5. They get bought without batting an eye!

I don't think you would want to load the owner of the shop into a situation like this knowing that they cannot be sold in her shop. That seems kinda wrong to me, but thats JMO. I also don't know if the owner could be sued or what by SU since their policy is no retail sales. And I know you're probably thinking, How would they find out & would they really do that? Well... I don't know, but why would you put a customer in a position like that to possibly find out the hard way? JMO.

I agree that I would sell them outright to the florist rather than work on consignment.
The others are right about not using SU stamps in this case. That being said, there are A TON of companies with fantastic angel policies. If you need a list, I have done some recent research and have about 50 or so companies whose only request is that your items not be mechanically made, but rather hand stamped.

I know that TAC will let you do it, so will Hampton Art Stamps, After Midnight Arts and many others. When my line comes out in October, I will allow that also. It's important to make sure that you aren't selling something that will get the owner in trouble in any way. You never know, someone may see them in her shop and order them for their own business. You could build this into something big! Good for you! Go for it!

So this applies to everyone? I always thought it was just for demos. Well, if it does apply to everyone, it's good to know before someone gets in trouble or something.

Not to get off subject from the OP but here is SU's Angel Policy.....

http://www.stampinup.com/us/document...olicy_2006.pdf

It states right in it that you cannot sell to someone who will be reselling it in a retail location. Something like that.

Good luck with your opportunity!

Default selling cards

Hey there,

i agree with lynnwithanne. You can sell them to her. YOu are not selling them to a business per se. What she does with them after that is upto her and has nothing to do with you. just make sure you do put you stampin up logo stamp on the back and i think you'll be good to go. Also, thinking of you, baby, sympathy, happy hellos, birthday and loves are all great kinds of cards to do. My mom sells some for me and the thinking of you and happy hellos go over really great with this audience. Hope this helps you out!!!!

Try some stamps with angel policies, there are tons out there. You don't need to use SU stamps, and frankly, I think SUs angel policy is kind of behind the times. If you do a search online, you will find several stamp companies that have angel policies, and their stamps are wonderful. I love SU stamps, but that is a main reason why I do not buy alot of them.

I think that's a GREAT idea, I'm looking into selling cards myself and have been stuggling with these same issues. How to price? What stamps? I'm anxious to see what you all have to say about this idea. Shelly

I can't comment on whether it's right or wrong to sell them to her, but I do know that when it comes to pricing, store-bought cards are pretty expensive. Especially, the one that are fake-handmade. Be sure to price them high and not cheat yourself in the process. 3-5 for a card is regular.

I buy cards that my grandma sends to relatives. She likes Hallmark and rarely uses the cards I make for her(they are too pretty she says) but has no problem with expensive store-bought ones, so my advice is price high for handmade!

You cannot sell your cards to individuals who will be reselling them in fixed retail locations. I know that someone posted above that nobody would know but YOU would. I would just do the right thing and not worry about crossing any lines. That is if you would be using SU or CTMH stamps. If you are using others that have a broader "Angel Policy" then go for it.

That's what I was thinking. I sell Arbonne, and we are not allowed to sell our products at a retail location, however we are allowed to display the products somewhere and then leave our business card with them for people to contact us....

I'm not sure how well that would work with cards though. Usually if you're in a flower shop you're buying cards for an event that day (at least I am!). You typically don't have time to call someone and wait to get ahold of them, etc.

Hmmm...there is a florist right next to where I work who is selling handmade SU cards, I was checking them out and did see that they were angel policy stamped. Pretty scary that they are being sold and not "supposed" to be. This shop carries tonnes of local art and such, I wonder if the cards are in on consignment or have been sold to her.

Sorry for the slight highjack... Good luck to the OP on her wonderful opportunity!

I have to agree here. I have slacked off on buying the SU stamps (although I am hooked on their cs) because there are many, many fantastic companies out there who have much better angel policies.

It doesn't matter if they are either, they are both breaking the SU Angel Policy. I wouldn't mess with SU's legal department.

Gee - I didn't know SU had that policy...that's too bad. I guess that will limit my purchases of SU stamps!! Most of my stamps are from other stamp companies that have angel policies, and I have been selling my cards for 9 months. I usually price mine at $4 to $5 but each one is more of a unique work of art with multi layers, special techniques done on each separate panel, with embellishments and also a paper insert in each card, so you have more room to write whatever.... Most people know that Hallmark cards cost almost that much and they are just mass produced. Also I am in a large metro area, so that price is not far out of the normal range for around here. People seem happy to pay that. If I do simpler cards, I usually price them less. Good luck!
