There’s something so appealing about buying from smaller businesses. The idea that a product has been crafted by someone like me for me not only adds a personal touch but also seems to give people more of an emotional connection that goes hand in hand with the financial transaction being made at the end of the day. Everybody wins. Then there’s always something so special about knowing that small quantities mean rare commodities and higher value. In other words, you know what you’re buying is special and unique.
We’ve spotted a few career girls who are proving that even online businesses starting out small can make very lucrative Etsy shops. You’ll quickly notice why it’s great for a creative outlet while making money doing what you love. Check out some of our favourite resources found on Etsy and why.
Stock Photography Design
Think feminine desktop inspiration for the perfect blog website or email header. Bird’s eye view of pink macarons, jars filled with white and gold pencils and blushing blooms. Printables and stock photography are an easy, professional and cost-effective way to go for bloggers, developers and designers. Like the saying, ‘ pictures are worth a thousand words,’ it really does say a lot about the brand when good graphics are utilised. What’s great about these images is that the photographer is usually mindful of creating space for logos and text which makes personalisation very easy. We are loving what these gorgeous ladies are serving up.
These styled stock photos are feminine and well put together, you’re paying for quality here, but you can also get creative as there’s plenty of space for logo, designs, images and branding.
These photos are a little more playful, with hints of gold and great pops of colour, with plenty of space for your logo or some text.
