People share with me stories of how meaningful cards are in their lives. Stories of care and compassion and how a card has helped them touch a friend’s life who was diagnosed with cancer. Stories of the joy a card brings for saying hello to a grandfather who lives in a nursing home. Stories of celebration as the “perfect” sports related card scores a home run with a son or grandson on his birthday.
People began to ask about a gift that would coordinate with their card - with the reason behind the card. So, in response, I discovered that Zazzle could be the perfect partner to create products featuring my designs - the designs that will touch people or add to their celebration - designs that would help an ordinary gift become personalized and a true treasured keepsake.
My first sales outlets were small local shops where I sold my handcrafted cards. My sales grew to include larger regional stores, private label cards, and organization and industry specific collections. Online sales at Greeting Card Universe and my own online card shop, Cards by Sandra Rose, selling both wholesale to stores and retail to individuals, have allowed me to expand not only across the United States but in Europe as well. The online store Zazzle has allowed me to grow my business to include and offer not only cards, but related collections of gift items featuring my designs. My line has now grown to more than 5,000 cards and I have sold well over 200,000 cards. Products are taking off as people find these designs and more on hundreds of gift items, home goods, clothing and so much more!
I hope that you will find the perfect gift and card for your occasion at Sandra Rose Creations!
