Help please?

I'm thinking of starting to make invitations for things, party's, baby showers, maybe even birth announcements, but I don't know how much interest there would be or even if i'm good enough at it. I am getting better and I'm thinking if there is enough interest in it then I may start an Etsy shop, but IDK. What do you lady's think?

Here is an example of my work

I have a website where I sell stuff like this. I have had some orders, but business is slow. I have an etsy shop too, but I never sold anything over there. It is pretty saturated. Etsy is pretty inexpensive though if you want to go that route. What program do you use?

That is really nice! I'd buy something like that on etsy.com if I was looking. I don't think its a bad idea at all.

Right now i'm using Scrapbooks plus but I have Photo Shop it's just not completely installed on my computer yet. I noticed that Etsy has a lot of people doing invites, so I don't really know how well it would go over there. Is there any where else I could do it? Some place more personal?

What I did was start my own site. You could look into ebay as well, but it will cost a lot more than etsy. The link to my site is in my siggy if you want to see what mine looks like. There are lots of WAH places to help you create websites that are easy to use. You can upload your stuff to google products for free. If you need any help just let me know. I am a software developer by trade, so I have a lot of experience with that sort of thing. LOL

When I was starting I found something called Zazzle. You could check that out. The only thing I don't like about zazzle though is that they edit the wording and such right there on the fly. I like something with a little more personal touch.

You could also try http://www.bonanzle.com/ . I found that one day when I was looking around. Good luck!
