About GreylingPost

On Etsy since 2016

This took 6 years.

Although I started my shop back in 2016, it's only been this year, the monstrosity that has been 2020, that my shop has started to get busy.

After University finishing in 2007 and then ten years in the service industry, I quit my day job at the age of 29 (as I'd been slowly building my illustration business along side shifts) and sold my artwork on greetings cards, all over the world. I still have an agent in the USA and I had one for a few years in Australia. Card life was going OK and I'm still running it, (with our Cards to Care Homes scheme) but it wasn't what I actually wanted to spend all my time doing.

Then Covid 19 struck and shut all the independent shops that stocked my cards. Card life was over, money coming in was over.

But then my quiet little Etsy shop started getting busier (March 2020). I'd always though of my Etsy shop as just a hobby. I did an Etsy course and listed all my items properly and had all my products professionally photographed (lucyridges.com) This made a huge difference. I added more items and dug out illustrations I'd made over the years and added them, I made sure my customer service and time frames were spot on.

With the encouragement of the Etsy community and the wonderful customers I work with every day, Etsy is now my main income and I cannot wait to list my new ideas and grow my shop. I'll definitely be hiring someone to help me with my Christmas orders in 2021.
