Work From Home Resource--Greeting Card Universe
Have you heard of Greeting Card Universe? You sign up for free, design and open your own online store (free), and then design your own greeting cards by uploading your on creative designs and wording for your cards.
Cards sell for $1.99 each. Designers/sellers are given 50 cents for each sale. As a designer/store owner, you are able to purchase your own cards at a discount ($1.49 each). So, you can buy these cards and sell them for a higher price elsewhere.
Payments are through Paypal or check, once the $25.00 minimum is reached.
You also have the option to make your designs available as free ecards. When these ecards are sent, there’s an ad that will say something like “This free ecard is also available as a print greeting card.” - pointing to where they can buy it online.
Another cool thing about Greeting Card Universe is that they are the only greeting card provider for BigDates-Solutions.com, which is the leader in reminder service solutions. Through reminder emails that their customers sign up for, your cards will be suggested to the right people, at the right time for the right occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.)
There is also an option offered by Greeting Card Universe where you simply choose cards that you like, design a widget with those designs, add it to your blog, and when someone clicks through from your widget to their site, and purchases any greeting cards ( not just the ones shown on your widget), you will be paid .50 for each card sold.
I have not actually tried this myself, but I thought it sounded interesting and could be worth checking out, especially for creative artistic moms at home looking for extra income resources.
If you already have tried Greeting Card Universe or have more insight about it, good or bad, please share!!
