I wonder which one it was. There’s lots of things I need to look into and I’m looking forward to doing it next year. Shopify, Indiemade, I’m definitely going to try drop shipping, social media I need to get set up properly, I could be dreaming but I’m thinking about looking into how much it would cost to manufacture a product to see if it’s even realistic for me to do. I don’t have much of a social life, I’m an introvert, but I’ve been taking antidepressants for a few months now and I’ve stopped gambling which has been a big problem for me for over 10 years and right now I have about £10,000, it could have been probably £15,000 but I was gambling until a few months ago, but at the end of August I lost everything, and since then I’ve made the £10,000. I actually can’t believe it. I don’t know why I’m sharing this but I’m feeling very focused right now and I feel like I’m on the verge of taking it to the next level. I never used to believe in using “the secret” to make good things happen in life, but I just feel different right now and it’s a very strange feeling.
Wowza! is that £10k AFTER tax/NI/Expenses?

It’s after expenses, I haven’t been putting aside anything for the tax but I’ll just pay it when it comes to it ☺️

Well done on giving up gambling. I have some family experience of gambling addiction and it is so destructive.

Make sure “payment on account” doesn’t surprise you and bite you on the ass!!

Just me :( Been up all night, haven’t been to sleep because I need to catch up
Have you thought of hiring anyone?
Even a teenager after school would be good as teens are normally quite good at tech stuff and you can probably get away with paying like £7 an hour to a teen.

Or even if you don't teach them the tech stuff they can pack things in envelopes and print postage and labels to sending which gives you more time for making the prints.

Good idea this.

Paper-rounds don't seem to be as popular as they were when i was a kid so something like this would probably go down well!

Other thoughts could be could you hire someone from the moneyshed to do the personalisation bit for you?

You could pay per item they do. Which would save you some time as you'd just need to print it.

I did think that before, but there’s not much point now, I’ve extended the delivery times and put the prices up so the orders have slowed down a bit, just need to get through the next 4 or 5 days.

I clearly watch too much daytime TV but..

On This Morning they were doing a feature about christmas presents for your pets and they featured someone with an Etsy shop (showing product, price, URL etc.) who made personalised hamster boxes.


You should Drop them a line and see if your products could be featured!

Could result in a HUGE sales surge for you!

Thanks Jon but not just yet lol, I’d have a breakdown. Printers broke again today. Only had a replacement like a month ago. New one coming tomorrow but that’s put me even more behind. Really want to open my new store and use a drop shipping company so that I can do away with the printer, paper and the rest of the bullshit! :ROFLMAO: It’s soooo annoying. I hate printers

I probably could have put the prices up a month ago, people are still ordering.

People in America are still ordering expecting to get them for Christmas, even though the estimated delivery times say it could be up to Jan 4th, they just don’t read anything on Etsy, they buy them without knowing how big it is, what it’s printed on, whether or not it’s framed, where it’s coming from, when it’s coming, etc, they just buy and ask questions later.. wtf :LOL:

You are doing so amazing with it which is really great, you are an inspiration, I have followed this thread since the start and I really wish I could get into doing this as well. I love creating things and desperately need money.

- Do you need much money to startup? (I'm guessing some of it is paper, ink, envelopes)
- Where do you find images to use that allow resale?
- How easy is this for someone that has never done anything like this before?
