So, onto a few of my top picks from the new range

Hooray for the Autumn Range!

autumn supplementI’m excitable as we have new products today! The autumn range has been released and it’s very good (no bias here!).

There are 76 new products, with plenty of fresh designs to choose from. I’ve just ordered all of them in so I can’t wait to see them all! From what I’ve seen so far, I’m loving Super Heroines, Lazy Dog Days and the Little Kittens packs – so cute!

The full range is available on my website here, so can all be ordered now. Why not stock up on your every day cards and get your Christmas cards, stationery and advent calendars ordered at the same time? All organised and you’ll only pay delivery once.

The entire range is at www.jocelynscards.co.uk and do remember that this is a business for everyone, so if you fancy selling these fabulous things, too, get in touch to find out more 🙂

Get Yourself Organised – I’ll Make it Easy!

I can’t be alone in feeling happy and smugly organised by having my cards sorted for the next few months? I’ve always liked to have a stack in ready for all eventualities, and obviously now that I sell them, my stack to choose from is rather huge! If you’d like to get organised yourself (because you always like to be, or because you’re determined to become more organised!), then let me take the hassle out of it now for you.

Tower of Fairies A097AB

Tower of Fairies A097AB

I’m doing a ‘back to school’ pack of 20 best-selling children’s cards, for £26 inc. P&P.

It’ll be a mix, though I can easily tailor it if you’ve specific requirements, for example, if you need more girls than boys cards.

All you need to do is drop me an email or tweet me and I’ll get yours together for you. I’m at joloreading@gmail.com or Twitter at @IHaveCards. I can then take payments via Paypal, credit cards over the phone, or you can send me a good old-fashioned cheque, if you prefer.

And there you have it. Simple as that, and you’ll have a drawer full of organisation..!

Butterfly CupcakesI can also do general best-selling card packs, typically including 10 ladies cards,  5 mens, 3 general and a couple of special occasion cards. But again, as with the kids’ packs, I can take requests, so if you definitely need a baby girl card including, for example, tell me and I’ll pop one in. Same price for 20, £26.

Another popular one is a ladies 20 card pack for £26.

And then I can always tag things on – gift wrap, stationery, a couple of packs of kids Christmas cards for the whole class, a reusable advent calendar – you tell me! Again, I can choose the selection for you if you’re pushed for time.

If ordering it all together, I’ll only be charging the £2 P&P once.

So, has that made it easy for you? There’s no excuse not to be smugly organised now 🙂

To browse, I’m at www.jocelynscards.co.uk, and you can of course buy directly from there if you’d rather make all of your own selections.

I’m also growing my team of UK traders, so if you fancy selling these yourself and making some extra money in the run up to Christmas, get in touch for more information.

 

My Open House

Last night I held my Christmas preview night at home. I invited friends and customers to come and see the new range. Now, I know that Christmas in August is just too much for some!, so several have said they’ll order later on and want a copy of the Christmas brochure. People are also away on holiday, but as I have all of the stock here, I was eager to unveil!

table

 

It was a great evening! Several people did pop by, plenty of cards were purchased and I booked in a few parties for later in the year. I also had my every day range out and as always, these cards went down a treat 🙂

bar

 

I love the simplicity of it all. I bought some cards, I put them on my table, people came and ate cake with me and I sold cards and made money. Simple!

The Christmas range is all on my website now, ask me if you’d like a free copy of the brochure, or get in touch if you’d like to know more about selling these cards yourself.

Christmas Has Arrived Here!

Well it’s arrived! Every August, our Christmas season begins. This is the start of our busiest and best time of the year. On launch, we’re offered the chance to buy a big pack of Christmas stock at a better discount than normal, throughout the month of August. I always take advantage of this, which means that I now have…

box of cards

My 3 year old loves it! Christmas is a very popular time with her!! And once unpacked, those boxes and bubble wrap will be providing hours worth of entertainment!

bubble wrap

I have an open house planned for my customers next week, which I’m really looking forward to. Quite a lot of people have said they’re coming, so I’d best get baking.. 🙂

You can buy the Christmas range on my website now at http://www.jocelynscards.co.uk. If you’d like to find out more about becoming a trader yourself, feel free to get in touch with me.

Great New Trader Offer Launches

It’s that time where I get my newsletter from Head Office and get all excitable! This time is actually even better than usual, as along with the newsletter, there was an update on Phoenix Trading’s charitable support and my copy of the new Christmas supplement.

Christmas newsletter

Oh. My. Word. To say that I’m looking forward to this year’s Christmas season is an understatement! I always enjoy it, I love Christmas and like showing off the range to people, and as you’d imagine, traders tend to do make around 60% of our annual turnover from Sep-Nov, so you’ll see that now’s a busy and popular time for me! It’s not just the gorgeous cards, it’s the advent calendars, roll wrap, bunting, paper-chains, colour-in table cloths and decorations, gift boxes & bags, the list goes on and on…! And, of course, people still buy the everyday range – I do not stop stocking that just because Christmas is coming! At this early stage, I’m not sure which items will be most popular, but I’m fairly confident that these things will go down well..

advent calendar gingerbread housecolour-in thank yousadvent calendar card

It’s all in my shop now at www.jocelynscards.co.uk and I’m available to show it all off at parties, in person, by post or on-line – just get in touch!

Anyway, I digress (easily get carried away with the new stuff!). As well as finding out about the new range, the newsletter brought me news about a new offer that Head Office are running throughout August and September. For anyone joining up as a new trader during this period, along with the £30 business kit, they’ll receive an E-Commerce website absolutely free (normally an optional extra at £25+VAT). A lovely little perk!

If you can see this business being something you’d enjoy, too, find out about how you’d get started here and feel free to read any of my past posts on what I’ve been up to and what it’s all about. I enjoy welcoming new traders to my team, and am happy to help people get going and offer any support needed along the way 🙂 Ask me anything you like, and joining up is easy. You get your kit from Head Office within a few days. And that’s it – you’re in business!

So, I’ve perused my newsletter, admired my brochure, I’m probably best to get on with selling it now..bye!
