If you are a creative person, this could be an enjoyable 'business idea' to consider. Why not compete with those big companies that offer very generic cards. Your cards could offer much more popular quotes from famous people of our past years. If you are artistic, you could include your own art or humorous drawings.
The cards that are often searched for and popular are the ones that are motivating and inspirational. You could motivate other people with a few well-chosen words, or famous quotes with original designed cards.
If you think that you could possibly inspire people, lift their spirits, and make them laugh, you have what it would take to start a business like this.
The more variety you are able to offer in your assortment of various greeting card types the better your business will be. Try to offer cards that can be difficult to find in most stores.
If your business is on the Internet, you could even offer to print the cards with personal names included inside of them. Offer to print cards that others want to design also. The more options that you have to offer your customers, the more popular your business will become.
Remember that you will be competing with the typical greeting card companies, so if you are able to offer your cards at a better price this will make your cards attractive to buyers. You could offer packages of six cards for $10; this would be a great value.
As long as you are able to print up your cards for a reasonable price, you should still be able to make a good profit from your card sales.
This would be a great 'business idea' to start on the Internet. A Web-store would offer you a large number of customers. This would also offer you the ability to customize cards for your customers. These types of cards would offer much more than the typical run-of-the-mill cards offered in brick and mortar types of stores.
If you choose to start your business much smaller, you could print up your cards and offer them to your local small individual store and boutique owners. This is an excellent way to start a business with faithful customers that will enjoy your special cards.
However, it will take a while for customers to become familiar with your cards and look for them on a regular basis. The other problem with offering your cards to merchants is that by the time they are sold to customers, their prices will be much higher. If you are able to by-pass the middleman, your cards will sell at a more attractive price.
Make sure that your cards stand out as unique; this will assure you of regular customers that will expect the unusual and special cards that you offer them.
Once you establish your brand of cards, people will seek them out to represent them when sending cards out to inspire people, lift their spirits and make them laugh or feel more understood or loved.
