About GreylingPost

Sales 5,549
On Etsy since 2016

This took 6 years.

Although I started my Etsy shop back in 2016, it's only been since pandemonium 2020, that my shop has started to get busy.

After University finishing in 2007 I spent ten (actually very fun) years in the service industry, as I thought I wanted my own cafe. Maybe I'll still get one one day. I had slowly been building my illustration business along side shifts for 2/3 years in my late 20's. At 30, I was able to leave my day job. I was selling 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.

Then Covid 19 struck and shut all the independent shops that stocked my cards. It seemed card life and my small business, may be over.

But then my quiet little Etsy shop started getting busier (March 2020). I'd always though of my Etsy shop as just a side hustle. I did an Etsy course and listed all my items properly and had all my products professionally photographed by lucyridges.com. This made a huge difference to my sales. I added more items and dug out illustrations I'd made over the years and added them onto products, and 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've an assistant now (Benjamin) on board helping me with your personalised orders. I love my job so much!
