I have written before in my best proud mum style about the beautiful girl’s art, and not so long ago a friend suggested that we look at getting her work some exposure. This new website was suggested, where we could show her drawings and paintings, but also create some lovely unique greetings cards for the public to purchase.

Hubby and I talked about Unique Selling Points, the lovely girl just felt embarrassed and didn’t want her name on anything, so using the emblem for our genetic condition, Zebra Girl was born. We are really hoping that alongside creating art, we might be able to fundraise for The Ehlers Danlos Support UK through selling some greetings cards. I have just created a facebook page and would appreciate some likes and shares to get the word out there! Art by Zebra Girl facebook page
I know I am a hopeless salesperson and even worse at marketing, so that is why I am sharing a review from Debbie of Mum’s The Boss Blog. She reviewed the We All Send Cards site, looking at it from an artist’s, business builder and customer perspective. I hope you enjoy the review and take a look at the site by going direct to Zebra Girl or to the WASC site, – both links will help fundraise for EDSUK.
“Today I’m taking a look at WeAllSendCards a new UK website for sending personalised printed cards, which also offers a fantastic business opportunity. There is also a giveaway at the end of the page so please read on…
How many cards do you send in a year? Even excluding the Christmas card marathon, how many do you send?
If you are anything like me, you probably don’t send as many as you would like to. I’d love to send more birthday cards, thank you cards, and cards to celebrate all kinds of things. I love receiving cards and I think it is lovely to send them too. But the occasions creep up on me and I find I don’t have the right card at the right time and I can’t be bothered to go out and buy a stamp and post them…..does this sound familiar?
I sent myself a Thank you card just to test out the concept – it was lovely to receive. This would be great if you were in business – you could put company relevant images inside the card and thank your customers and suppliers. you could also put a coupon or QR code in there if you wanted to. But it’s also nice for your personal occasions.
You have two options for delivery with these cards. Firstly you can have them totally printed and just send them directly to your recipient. Alternatively (and this is great), you can part-personalise them and then have them sent to you in cellophane – you can then hand write a bit on the card and send them on. They tend to arrive at the first destination about 4-6 business days after you order them (more if you are posting abroad) but as long as you leave yourself a week or more of notice then this is a great service…….continued”
Debbie goes on to explain that as an artist or designer there are both business and creator opportunities at We All Send Cards. For Debbie’s complete article please visit Mum’s The Boss.
