  • Cards that sell ?

    I have been out and about lots of National Gardens open in "the scheme" taking images of flowers and plants and scenes for "Cards"


    What do you think of this one ?







    Do you have best seller card images ?

    Please add yours

    Re: Cards that sell ?

    When I 'did' craft fairs, I found that local views sold well. But flower shots did sell, poppies were popular. What I thought was a good pic sometimes did not do well.
    This shot is good, I should think it would sell.

      That shot is lovely, I could see it on a canvas

        Nice image Chevvy, cards are not a market I've explored yet so can't post any examples, my thoughts would be that wording on the front may need to be taken into account regarding the market that's being targeted. Out of interest do you know what are the best sellers in the card market?

        I watched an interesting programme last night on supermarkets and was surprised to learn that Strawberries sold so well and how much research went into producing the perfect strawberry.

          This is going to sound silly but I think it would be better if the image was flipped. (mirrored) So the centre stem moves in from lower left as opposed to coming in from lower right.

          It's a very nice picture and the border suits it well.
          Thanks

            I'd say you've captured what you want very well. I've seen similar things in card shops so I'm guesing this type of things sells. No experience of this though.

                  Jeremy, Thank You ! I hope it shall sell well ... lots of my A5 card prints get framed, by the village elders (or their friends if given away) cheap wallpaper and then used as a card and another few selected for the "frames"

                          I'm sure when I opened this thread there was only one image at the top. Now there are two (the flipped one is there as well). Spooky.
