Inspiration Station: Inspiring Birthdays

July 31, 2014

Birthday cards remain a popular item to send and receive. While it’s unlikely you’ll sell a birthday card in bulk (unless it’s a party invitation),  several steady sellers in your store will increase your commissions nicely.

Like clothing fashions, trends in greeting card designs come and go. Where do you go for inspiration? In the real world, check out the racks at grocery stores, drug stores, etc. On-line, the biggest commercial greeting card retailers have websites you can browse—always a good idea. And here are some links to find inspiration on Pinterest.
