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

So sweet! As with all of the cards, this is blank inside for your own message. There is also a cat version, too.

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 🙂

My Picks of the Week #20

With most children back at school, or starting school this week, I thought I’d pick out a few of my favourite children’s cards to share with you. I’d always recommend (of course!) keeping a stash of these in your drawer as I know that once at school, you seem to need to send a card every other week, and this’ll mean you’re prepared!

All cards are blank inside for your own message, and are all priced at £1.50, or (and this is why you’re best to get a stack in!) if you buy 10 or more, they’re £1.20 each.

Remember, if you’re pressed for time, or just bamboozled by all of the choice on my website, I can put together a best-sellers pack for you.

My shop’s at www.jocelynscards.co.uk

And with the run up to Christmas, and the offer of a free e-commerce website for joiners this month, now’s a good time to sell these cards yourself – just get in touch for more information on joining my growing team.

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

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.

 

Made My Day

A couple of days ago, our local Mums in the Know website featured a fantastic review of my business, written by one of my lovely customers. It reads..

hannah's pic‘I always like to keep a stash of cards in my top drawer. Being a busy Mum of two and running my own business time always seems to be short and birthdays or special occasions suddenly creep up on me. I bet many Mums can relate to this! Not only do I now have to remember my own friends’ birthdays and anniversaries but my kids seem to be being invited to more and more kids birthday parties too.

I used to pop down M&S every few months and stock up on a range of greetings cards (kids birthday cards, ladies and men’s cards, thank you cards etc) and keep them in that top drawer. Then I could grab one out of the drawer whenever a birthday crept up that I had forgotten about. That was until I stumbled across iHaveCards on twitter. iHaveCards is run by Sutton Coldfield based Jocelyn Reading, a young Mum of two young children, who trades in the Phoenix range of cards, which are absolutely lovely. The cards are so unique and Jocelyn is so forthcoming.

So I decided I didn’t want to put my money towards a large impersonal company anymore but instead support a local Mum trying to earn a living for her young family. What’s not to relate to? I need cards and she sells them, simple really. I’ve taken a photo of just a few of the cards I have bought from Jocelyn (my stack is starting to go down already so I will have to re-stock again soon). On the left you can see some of the kids cards, on the right are some of the ladies cards, in the middle are two male ones. You can’t see it in the picture but some of cards are even 3D. This is just a small selection of the ones I have bought, there are so many more in the range. And Jocelyn stocks loads of other stationary too, gift wrap, tags, present accessories and lots more.

Now I contact Jocelyn every few months instead of going to M&S and I buy a bulk of cards from her to put in my top drawer. It’s so easy, I can phone her, email her, buy via her website or I’ve even visited her and had a mooch through her entire collection. She does Facebook parties and open house evenings as well to get extra discounts. And you don’t have to buy in bulk like me, you can just get one-off cards.

And I have not been bribed to write this, I just simply believe in supporting other mothers around the area who are providing great products and a great service.

I’m so pleased with it and it really made my day. It’s fabulous that it’s so positive, but it’s just the fact that Hannah took the time out of her very busy life (she runs Kids Let’s Dance, as well as looking after her children) to write and share this that touched me the most. Thank you so much Hannah, as you’ve made my day (possibly my week..!) Oh, and I’m quite partial to the ‘young mum’ comment, too – not sure that’s strictly accurate, but thanks so much… ;-)!

Remember, my shop’s at www.jocelynscards.co.uk and if you fancy selling cards, too, I’m always happy to welcome and support new team members 🙂
