Handmade cards, prints, and gifts make excellent gifts, but not everyone has the patience or skills to create them – that’s where you come in. Learn how you can turn your design skills into a thriving paper goods business in Fast Start Your Paper Goods Business with Kari Chapin.

This course will encourage you to take a wider view of your paper goods business, beyond just printing cards and shipping them. You’ll take a behind-the-scenes look at a thriving stationery business as you learn about selling a range of products, both online and in stores. Kari will talk about:

    By the end of the very first segment, I learned about 2 great tools I never knew about. That alone, was worth the cost of this class. I'm looking forward to the rest of the class and hope to put all this great information to good use. Thank you!

    really enjoyed this course by Kari! it was well-paced and just the right length of time. there's something about Kari that makes you feel like finding success in a handmade business is truly (realistically) attainable! I'm looking forward to reading and listening to the bonus material and watching the course again (and again). thank you!

She is an excellent instructor/speaker! This course should be mandatory for anyone thinking about setting up their own Paper Goods business. Thank you Kari! 21freckles
