    I'm curious, what does she print them with? I have a customer who does that exact type of business and am going there tomorrow to calibrate her printer. I'm gonna try to sell her a calibrator too so I don't have to deal with it anymore.

    Also not sure where she gets her stationary, but I have another customer http://www.donovandesignsinc.com/ that sells a lot of different things your wife may be interested in. Its a neat family run business that has stuff all across the country. They literally have the kids and grandmas in the assembly warehouse putting the little details into the products. Its very neat.

    she uses a HP color laser printer. she bought a consumer one when she first started, and it crapped out a year later. start of last year, she bought a semi pro one and its been holding up great. 2 years and over 40 weddings, still going like a champ. I don't know the model number, but it was around $1000 or so and she bought warranty on it so she wouldn't have to buy another one. she doesn't do all the embossed stuff or the raised and printed letters, but she just started about 5 months ago w/ the designs and flowers on the invites. working out great and she's getting more high end stuff.

    I'm tellin' ya... she's getting better and better as she goes. :cool:

    I've told her to get on etsy, but she doesn't want to. She's busy and steady as it is and she also stays at home and takes care of the little one at the same time. She's friggin' superwoman I tell ya, superwoman!!! :o

    There's a place on etsy where you can just set yourself up to receive submissions.

    Like, if someone wanted a designed invite or something, you can bid on how much you want to charge and mockups. You get picked like a contractor.

    That way it's not like you constantly make stuff and post things for sale, but if you have the time and see someone looking for something you know you could whip up you can put yourself out there for x amount of money.


    But yeah I hear you on not having time, etsy is very time consuming, more than ebay or anything similar.

    awesome stuff!

    how many "samples" does she usually make for a couple that's getting married? I would imagine just making one invite takes quite a while.

    Every brides first sample is free. If they want more, there's a cost per. When she makes them, she makes 2 samples... One for them and one for her collection.
