How did your business get started? I was looking for a way to make money working from home. I always was a
big card sender and I found a company called Send Out Cards online.
They invited me to send a free card and try out the service. I was
immediately HOOKED because it's a fast, fun and affordable way to send
real greeting cards through the U.S. Mail. So I signed up as an area
representative and have owned a SendOutCards franchise since May of
2006. What products does your business provide? Greeting cards & gifts, also photo items such as posters, calendars,
photo books, coffee mugs, iPhone and iPad covers, and much more!
What do you want your business to be best known for? We are the "Netflix" of the greeting card & gift industry. We are
part of the "Brick & Mortar to Click & Order" revolution. We
are following in the footsteps of iTunes (music), Amazon (books, etc.)
and Netflix (movies)....providing a fast and easy way to send REAL
physical greeting cards & gifts without touching paper, pen or
stamp, or leaving your home or office.
What's your most popular product? Our 2-panel greeting cards at less than $1.50 per card is our most
popular product -- also our brownies and cookies from our Gifting dept.
are a few of our best selling gift items that can be sent with a card
right to a person's mailbox!
Why did you choose the location that you did? I live in Wyandotte, grew up and went to school in Wyandotte, so this
"work from home" business allows me to work from my home in Wyandotte as
