I left the postoffice and, out of the corner of my eye, saw two cars parked across the street at A&M Printers. I ordered my new business cards and bookmarks a few weeks ago, but every time I went to the printers to see if they were done, the door was locked.
I hadn’t heard they were away for the holidays, but assumed that’s what happened.
So today, just in time to mail out my latest potholders, my first sales of the New Year, I picked up 1000 business cards and 500 Bookmarks. Brad said the 100 Show Your Soul postcards that I ordered would be ready tomorrow.
I packed up the first potholder for Lisa this afternoon.
It took me a little while to get used to seeing the new business card tied to the potholders. I wrote a quick “Thank You” on the back of the book mark and put it all in the envelope.
I would never have thought to make bookmarks if I didn’t start selling my work on Etsy. I got the idea when I realized I didn’t have to send people paper receipts because they got digital ones directly from Etsy when they bought something.
I still wanted to have a way to acknowledge the sale and thank the buyer. That’s when I thought of bookmarks. Much better, I think, than a paper receipt, which probably just got thrown in the garbage most of the time anyway.
I still have a few potholders for sale in my Etsy Shop. And I’ll be making more by early next week. I like to keep my shop stocked but,( lucky for me) sometimes it’s hard to keep up with it.
