We get asked a lot of questions by creators. Please see our most common questions below. Should your question not be answered, please feel free to contact us.
How Much Can I earn?
If you introduce a new customer to our site (usually by providing them with a link to your page which will be showcasing your cards), you will earn 62p per card for each card they buy with your design on, and 12p per card for each they buy which is not designed by you, not just on their first order, but on every single card they buy.
If the customer is not introduced to our site by you, you will still receive a whopping £0.50 per card sold with your design on, every single time one is purchased.
If you introduce other artists to our program, you can earn an additional 5p on every card that they sell too.
What experience do you have in the online greeting cards market?
We have been involved with building the print work-flow for some of the largest greeting cards companies in the world. We have built greeting card websites for third parties which use the latest technology, are fully responsive, have full personalisation, and have gathered tens of thousands of customers, and sold tens of thousands of cards over the last 24 months.
We are now using our experience we have gathered over the years and our tech know-how to bring our own website to market.
Ask us for more information.
How will I get paid?
Royalty payments are credited to your weallsendcards.com account immediately after the sale of any cards, so you can track your sales. Sales will remain pending for fourteen days. You will have the facility to request a withdrawal at any time for sales which are not pending. Payments should arrive in your nominated bank account within 72 hours, although normally much quicker.
How much do you charge for cards?
Our cards retail at £2.99 + P&P, however registered members on our site, which is free to join can purchase these for just £2.69 + P&P .
What if I know other creative people who would like to join your program?
Please introduce them to us via your personal link. They will get the same benefits for you, and you will earn an additional 5p per card for each card we sell with their artwork on.
Do you provide software to design cards?
For cards which can be personalised on the front (for example, photo-upload and where there is customisable text), we will provide you with a design facility so that these cards will be compatible with our customisation tools. This is not ready yet, but will be coming soon.
For cards which are not customisable, we expect you to provide a high-quality image for us to use when printing the card.
Can customers personalise the inside of my cards?
Yes - customers can write their own message and upload photographs to the inside of the card. They have the facility to rotate images and text, use multiple fonts and colours and customise both the left and right side of the inside of the card. It is very sophisticated!
Some cards will also have the facility to upload images and alter text on the front too - but this will be coming January 2018. This will only be allowed on specific cards designed specifically for this purpose.
How is your website marketed?
We are unique in the greetings card market as we get our members and customers to promote our website in exchange for a share of a segment of our turnover. We believe this will create excellent loyalty and enables those to earn a substantial second income.
We do not spend money on other forms of marketing, ensuring that we can be generous when we pay our contributors and members who share our site.
What size cards do you print?
We print landscape (175 x 125.8mm), portrait (125.8mm x 175mm) and square cards (148mm x 148mm).
Do you take copyright of my art?
No - we place no restrictions on what you do with your art - we license your image so you get a royalty on the cards which we sell.
You are free to remove cards from sale from our website and to market the same card designs elsewhere.
Can I share a bio on your website?
Yes, you can. You can add a photograph and a bio of about 100 words. We can Also add some information to the back of each card. You can also name cards, and write a short description if you wish.
We will provide you with your own page as part of our site. You can direct potential customers to your page. You can earn income if anyone you give your link to becomes a member, even if they buy cards designed by other artists!
How are the cards printed?
Our cards are printed with dry toner (greeting cards printed with wet toner are generally not recyclable). Our cards are currently printed on a Xerox igen4 commercial printing press for a high-quality print finish.
How can I monitor my sales?
We provide a live system which is updated every time we sell a card with your design on.
What steps do you take to protect the environment?
We print using dry toner which ensures our cards are fully recyclable. Our cards are printed on a material called Invercote G, which is carefully sourced from sustainable forests in Sweden. Our card is FSC certified, and the company we source this from complies to ISO14001. Card is processed in bio-fuelled mills.
How many different card designs can I sell?
We will look at each card on its merits, and decide whether it is suitable for our site. We usually set a limit of 10 to 50 cards per designer, but if cards do not sell over a period of time, they are likely to be removed, and if you sell a lot of cards, this is likely to be increased.
Does it cost to open an account with you?
No. We provide you with an account and software where appropriate for free.
Can I print my cards at a discount?
You can print your own supply of cards for just £1.25 each including an envelope and cellophane wrap. Postage and packaging will be extra but competitive, for example 10 cards would cost £2.33 across the UK. There will be a minimum order of just 10 cards to do this (all can be different designs), and there will be a competitive postage cost. You need to be qualified under our Spend and Refer reward programme for this, or an additional £1.50 processing fee per order will apply. Please request further information via our contact page.
Cards will be folded, include an envelope and self seal cellophane wrap.
Can anyone apply to be a creator?
We will consider applications from all sources. We will consider how suitable your designs are for our site before agreeing to any license agreement. It may be that some of your designs are deemed suitable, and some are not.
