3. They can be a profit center.

Wedding Invitations can be a huge profit center for you – even for brides on a budget! I checked 5 DIY (do it yourself) sites that offer wedding invitations. Here’s what they charged for wedding invitations with standard paper options (not including shipping):

25 Cards ranged from $3.69 to 8.60 with an average price of $5.20

100 Cards ranged from $1.79 to $2.60 with an average price of $1.97

200 Cards ranged from $1.59 to 2.15 with an average price of $1.88

Design OnlineUsing the 100-quantity option, you could simply match prices on these DIY sites and make about $100 per order – based on using Ashe Design’s new Design Online tool where you can order printed cards on our premium matte paper for just $1 each. For most clients you can easily go on the upper end of the range provided – for example charging $2.60/card on 100 cards for a profit of $160 per order. Don’t forget that you’re providing your clients with personalized service and custom designs and that’s worth something! Don’t be afraid to price your product at the top of those price ranges – or even a little higher! Of course you know your market and customer best, so adjust as needed! pink_Divider
