Christmas CatSelling your own greeting cards must be one of the most satisfying ways of making some extra cash to splash at Christmas. Greeting card printing is popular all year round, but at this time of year the take up rate goes sky high!  There are so many different routes available to market and sell your cards too; via online shops for those of you who are very organised, at school fetes, church and town fairs for others.  And let's not forget that boot fairs and local shops and businesses are also good avenues to pursue.

Designing your own cards is simple and fun

If we take greeting card design in its simplest format all you need is a great photo and some words. When do we send most cards? Christmas. For your own use the quickest and easiest route to a personalised card is a lovely personal photograph of family or something that has meaning to you and your friends and family. For an easy entry in to the retail arena a snow scene or festive setting will get you more than half way there. If you don’t have the technical savvy to add a message to the front of the card (ask yourself first if it really needs one, it might be obvious what it is all about) just supply the words and ask your greeting card printer to sort it out for you.  Most will do this for a small charge.
