What is a birthday without a beautiful handmade card? Today I am visiting with Julie of Specialty Cards 4U, learning about her growing business and her story. To celebrate July with us, Julie is giving away a $50 gift certificate, so you can get some of her handmade goodness for your very own celebration!
Hi Julie! I’m happy to have you here to talk about Specialty Cards 4 U, please tell us a bit about you & your business:
Hi Jessika! Specialty Cards 4U is an independent design studio located in Cincinnati, Ohio. I design & create handmade greeting cards and pocket notes that cover everything from birthdays to anniversaries. I’m so proud that we can offer a truly ‘handmade in the USA’ product to our customers and retailers. Each of our greeting cards and pocket notes are hand cut from heavy weight textured cardstock and embellished with ribbons, gemstones, glitter and more. I like to think that each one is a little piece of art – in fact, many of our customers have framed our cards. Our pocket notes are not only a whimsical way to send a birthday or new baby wish, they’re perfect for tucking little extras into the pocket – like a gift card or a love note. On the personal side of things, I’m married and have 2 great kids – my son is in high school and my daughter just finished her first year of college. We have also have a mixed-breed pound puppy that can usually be found with a scrap of ribbon stuck to his tail and glitter on his nose.
What lessons about running a small business/selling handmade can share with our readers?
