The same, but different

I love blue and brown together. I also love polka dots and paisley. I would say this paper was meant for me. I've had it for quite awhile and decided it was time to cut it up and part with some of it. I also love justjohanna stamps, and this one is one of my top 50. Yes, 50. Have you ever tried to make a top 10 of justjohanna stamps? It's tough. What a fun card for an anniversary, a birthday or for a "just because" card. I did the card the same, but in opposite prints. I'm not sure which one I like better, but it doesn't matter because both of them will go in my "cards for sale" box at work. Do you sell your cards? It's often been a topic of discussion on the message boards I peruse. If you sell them, then how much do you charge? It seems the average price I sell my cards for is $4, but some go for as much as $10, depending on if there is a lot of coloring or if it is a custom order. My coworkers often tell me I underprice my cards, but I just feel weird charging more than $4 or a card. I sell them at work for the convenience. The money I get for the cards I use to help support my habit. So tell me, if you sell your cards, how much do you charge? Where do you sell them? Inquiring minds want to know.

I sell mine for the same reason! I live in a small Southern town, and have set my usual price at $3.00 each or 2 for $5.00 - but I, too, have had lots of people say I'm too cheap. I usually sell mine incident to work as that is where I see the most people.

Love that paper! It is so fun! I do not sell my cards...I only give them away as I would not know how much to charge!

I love your cards. I don't sell any of my cards. But, I might in the future. I have made invites and sold them though. I think your pricing sounds about right.

These are great. I love that color combo too!

I don't sell my cards, though I've been told I should.

I do think your pricing is about right because a mass produced Hallmark card runs $2.00 ish* (I think). I rarely buy cards. If I do, it's usually a sympathy card.

Figure that your cards are hand made and one-of-a-kind. Therefore, they can command higher prices.
