My shop is mainly handmade cards and I love to make them.

I have seen some card sellers do superbly well here in Etsy, almost made sales daily and sell lots of cards. I am so curious as to how they can do sell so well with their cards.

My sales are not consistence like theirs.

Any secrets that you can share on selling cards here in Etsy? I would love to learn something from you.

Anyone selling their cards well in eBay?
I see that the cards there are priced so low that I wonder how they can earn a profit from their sales.

Hope to hear from you all! :)

I have no advice as you've sold way more than me. Interested to hear the responses though. :)

This is interesting because I have noticed many people here on Etsy selling paper goods.(greting and note cards , etc.) I briefly considered it, but realized that I like never, ever write letters nor mailable notes, and would be stuck with them in case they didn't sell.

I'm curious to know that, that many people actually write letters/notes nowadays??

I will read on to hear the comments to the OP and hopefully, my question.

I am getting a gocco - but I am wondering the same thing about letter writing and if there is already so much in the market here.

I write notes all the time!
