Need a Clever and Cheap Way to Display and Sell Your Beaded Jewelry Designs?
With all the Christmas Craft Fairs in full swing, you may be looking for simple ways to display your original art jewelry that will set you apart from others at the fair… as well as increase the perceived value for your pieces.
Try making some of your own jewelry display cards for your earrings and pendants from card stock.
The tent style card pictured above has the added design feature of being able to stand up and display your jewelry. This makes for a much more interesting display from a distance than cards that lay flat on the table.
You could have these printed up for you or you could print them up yourself with an inkjet or laser printer at home. Because my laser printer does not handle heavy card stock, I created these cards with rubber stamps and ink.
These earring display cards were made with 2-3/4 inch by 8-1/2 inch strips of heavy card stock paper folded in half. A stiffer card stock is works best, especially for heavier earrings.
I used alpha stamps to print the names on the cards and I rubbed the edges with ink to give them a distressed look. The name I sell my jewelry under is Funky Girl, since my designs have a quirky and funky look to them.
If you are printing these cards on your computer, you can add all kinds of info about how your product is made as well as contact / website details.
Even if you are just selling your jewelry to friends and family, a display card such as this can up the professionalism and perceived value of the piece. You can give your jewelry an indie-artist look like I have. Or you may prefer something more designer in style. It’s up to you.
Don’t think it is worth your effort? A simple handmade display card like this can turn your $6 earrings into $15 ones… or your $15 sets to $25. Remember that your customers are often buying your jewelry designs for gifts. The recipients never had the chance to meet you. So add a little extra personality to your earrings and pendants by putting them on a great display card and watch your sales soar!
