I know I've been kind of scarce here lately, but I've been swamped and DH was out of the country for almost two weeks. Andrew had a diorama to do while DH was gone, so that took the time I probably would have used for scrapbooking (and I sewed three diapers, which you guys saw one of)
Anyhow, I'm rambling ... the purpose of this thread is to ask a favor. Many of you know I do a photo card business. Business is really slow, but at the same time, I'm scared to push it too much because I don't even have the time to catch up on my own stuff. Yet, I need four card orders in order to get enough $$ to buy the speedlite for my camera.
That being said, here's the favor - will you please look at my gallery? Should I stay in business? I feel second-rate compared to so many other creative women out there. I custom create for each customer, I'm wondering if I should do about 20 templates instead and let people order from that. But I like being different, letting each customer have a design just for them.
My prices are low (IMO), and most people who order from choose the design fee and then get the photos printed themselves. I don't know if I should start looking into other options, outside of the 4x6 and 5x7 - but then I'd have to be the one to get them printed. I can't afford to invest any more into the business (having spent money on the domain name, business cards, digital scrapbooking files for commercial use) so I think expanding into different sizes/papers is something of the future for me.
Anyhow, please be honest - that's why I'm coming to you. I value your opinion. I feel like we're all friends here and this is something I can ask of my friends.
