Handmade versus shop bought?

Handmade versus shop bought?

I have been trying to think what the USP of my new venture is over the past few weeks as I have been gradually designing my website ( www.handmadecardsshop.com ). 

Why and what makes my cards different to others people can find in all the usual shops?

As you can see from the gift tag above, I have designed it to be given to someone whose name begins with L, she also loves red and white spots and voila! She also liked making craft items and her nickname was given so I designed the following to make the envelope a bit more exciting and personal!

Oh I know you can visit those big card companies and get things personalised but can you get all the added on bits and pieces too? Like this personalised card  I made and gave to my daughter and her boyfriend as their birthdays are close (and they had a visiting cat that they'd nicknamed Fatty.....

The cards and gifts might be a bit more expensive to buy but I think if you put in all the time spent thinking of the best way to show how much the person cares and how much longer it does take to make them I think it is a no-brainer (as the saying goes).

So, if you are thinking of your Christmas card list now (and the last posting date for Christmas to some parts of the world is only a couple of weeks away - why not think about sending a personalised, handmade card like this one? You can buy this here

Right, better get back to work - more anon!

  1. Handmade cards are much better than shop ones. It's the personal touch that makes it!
