More Grommeted Jewelry Card Ideas…

Several Items Carded up

About a year ago, while visiting the ‘oh so evil’ Michael’s crafts, I saw in the $1 bins some packets of ivory linen textured blank greeting cards each of which had a single metallic gold embossed shape on the fronts.

Bracelet style

Each package of 8 cards was only $1.00.

I’d been wanting to get some inexpensive card stock to do up some loss leaders in the form of fun colorful elastic bracelets that I could package and toss into a basket with a $3.00 ea or 4 for $10.00 price tag to draw in the clients looking for a bargain, and to give kids using their allowance money something in an affordable price range.

The basket of goodies was a hit at my summer shows, and the original idea I had, of cutting up the cards into smaller ones with slits for mounting the bracelets has now morphed into something just a trifle more professional in appearance.

I am still using the $1.00 bin card stock, as Michael’s ALWAYS has those cards there. But I’ve added a couple of elements.

I cut the cards in different sizes for different types of items:

* I use two grommets on necklace and earring cards.

* 4 grommets on bracelet cards.

* Four for the bracelet cards is because I fold the card in half around the bracelet, like a hang tag and use either ribbon or wire to close the grommeted corners to one another.

Clear address labels get a double imprint of my bird icon and are cut in half to make logo labels, one for each card.

Finally, my store name, my name, the ETSY site URL and my e-mail address go on the back side of each grommeted card.

I use wire to mount necklaces but instead of taping the wire ends down, I spiral them in case a client wants to try on the item.

I can simply pull out the spiral, unmount the piece, and let my client try on the fit and feel without tearing up the label on the back of the card.

Each card gets my initials on the front. Any special materials used handwritten on the front, and an inventory # and price on the backside.

Whew! Inexpensive, adjustable because I can cut different sizes and, hopefully, they give off a professional and unifying element to my booth during this coming summer’s shows.
