I did my own cards for a number of years, but burned out on it. My mother kept telling me I needed to go into business making custom cards, but it was taking me — at minimum — $80 in labor and materials for the simplest of my cards. It took me a while to make her realize that no one wants to pay $80 minimum for a single, custom greeting card.

My in-laws occasionally hint that they miss my custom cards, but I have no plans to go back to making any. It would be difficult now anyway, what with my beloved Dahle cutter having been left behind in CA.
