Some of the best I ve seen had been made by the person who had the display up. A good color printer can be a huge business asset. Software abounds to enable you to do some pretty trick things, and always at a lower cost, than having it made up. You can add a logo for your business, use photos instead of just printed, or drawing graphics. The world is your oyster.

Depending on what your craft is, some have a need for instruction, or at least care instructions. You can include complete care instructions with idiot proof wording AND Pictures. A lot of feedback I have gotten when doing shows in the past was a “fear of messing it up” having an easy to follow instruction sheet can be as important as a good product. People buy easy as much as pretty.

I’ve made a few myself, but I’m running into limited space due to a vehicle change. I want to look into the metal wire shelving mainly due to transportation and the fact that it all looks cohesive. We have a cricut that I might be able to cut the material out on, just always seems like I’m short on time to mess with the stuff and get to work with it. I don’t mind paying a bit more to get it done right the first time.

I have definitely noticed the need for care instructions on my cutting boards. That’s why I want to get the cards made. So many people question the cleaning and maintenance of wooden cutting boards that I would love to post it on the tag and wrap it with some twine. Give the appearance of it being more professional. I’m currently making my own line of wooden earrings and necklaces too. Trying to find the fold over hanging tags for those and I want them all in the same material to keep up the cohesive look.
