Sure, they're all food subjects, but in an objective sense, what do you all think of my holiday offerings for this year? My market is chefs and foodies, and being one myself, I have a fairly ready-made audience.

Do I offer enough styles? Pricing?

I was looking at your site the other day and think your work is amazing.  I've already told you that, so I digress.  Wink  Point is: I think your pricing is perfect.  You have a fantastic variety and each card is quite unique.  I'm sure your buyers will find just what they're looking for!  I also love your opening--my husband swears it's simply because you use correct grammar!  (It's true!  For that, I am definitely grateful.)  Good luck!

How clever ! I really like the look of the "grunge" card. I think you offer plently of styles. I don't know enough about what handmade cards go for to comment on prices though. sorry.

Ooh, I think they look great! Lots of styles, and the pricing's very good as well (up here I've noticed you'll spend close to $5 on a boring mediocre [at best] mass-produced card).

I think it is a great selection, and the prices seem very fair to me.     What is the text on the purple frog one - that is SO CUTE!!

This is the first time I've looked at your site. You've given such good advice to others here, I had to take a peek.

About the cards...So fun and truly original! Only thing I would suggest is that you mention if they are blank inside or contain a pre-printed holiday message. You called them both greeting cards - most have a message and note cards - most are blank inside.

Love your intro, quite a clever approach!

I'm using FireFox, some of the text isn't wrapping properly around your images. Such a pain the way IE and FF do that differently.

Haven't done anything of this sort or seen anything similar so I have no informed opinion on the pricing.

Your cards are great! Your prices are excellent but I almost missed the fact that they were sets of 4. I'd really make sure that was emphasised. I love your witty writing style too, it made me laugh several times!

Ah - excellent point on the blank insides and re-iterate the set of 4. I thought about selling one card at a time, but it's not really worth my time to make just one card and the price perception seems to be a bit better when you're buying a set vs. one card for $4-5! I also used to have sets of 6 but found that people would buy fewer sets that way, so 4 is the magic number!

The frog one says "We wish you JOY".

Now to improve my camera skills!

Thanks, all!
