Course content

The Card Making Business Diploma offers all the knowledge, information, insight and tools you need to start a card making business, or better enjoy your hobby.

The Card Making Business Diploma Course begins by explaining what exactly is in a card, why cards are important, the different types of cards that are available and in use today, as well as the different mediums that cards are presented on.

The course then moves on to discussing how an individual can get started, in terms of setting goals, choosing a niche, choosing materials, marketing the products, as well as ensuring quality control. From here the course focuses on the different skills that go into making a card, such as making and using stamps and inks, embossing, decoupage, paper crafting, making boxes and envelopes and determining how to position flowers and other add-ons onto the cards.

Students learn how to develop his or her portfolio, and covers topics such as eye-catching designs and their importance, the right way of marketing and the need to keep a record of all the individuals who have received the portfolio and provided feedback on the designs of the cards.

You will look at business matters, such as the pricing of the products, how to sell them, how to market them, and the importance of organisational skills for the card making business. The legal aspects and affairs that an individual thinking of starting a card-making business should be cognizant of.

We look at how to sell on the popular online retail sites, Etsy and Amazon, how a card making business should go about building its customer base and what kind of promotional offers can be provided, without going into a loss.
