So I turned her little fruit painting into business cards. Here's me holding one with a little handwritten note that goes in to an order. I like to include a coupon code in case a buyer wants to come back and make another purchase, then they can get a little discount. I think repeat custom is great! Yes, that is a turtle paperclip, they did not have any fruit paperclips.
I made the business cards using Publisher. After that I was feeling slightly clever so I made stickers with some Avery Labels I had bought for that purpose. This took a bit more effort since I had to use the Avery.co.nz website to find the oval templates. But it worked out alright.
Here's a parcel wrapped up and ready to send. It is a vintage apron, you can check it out here if you are interested. This one is off to Seattle in the morning.
I really like wrapping up my parcels. I usually use brightly coloured tissue paper. Now I can add a sticker as well! Sorry, dodgy laptop photos....
Here's me being silly with a banana-smile.
For my next big adventure in technology, I am investigating something called a QR code. This is the black and white square that you scan with a smart phone and it links to a website. Here's mine
I have no idea if it actually works, since my smartphone is not quite smart enough for this sort of thing! But give it a try and let me know :)
I would like to put these on the back of my business cards so tech-savvy folks can get a link to my shop straight away.
Now, I know my business cards and stickers don't really show up all that well in my photos on the blog but let me know if you'd like me to send you one, I would love them to go out into the wide blue yonder.
Thanks for reading, comments and questions are very welcome. Bless you.
