Printing custom notebooks and stationery is a very popular niche that has stood the test of time. Once again, the profit margins in stationary are huge and the initial investment is small. You can outsource your printing requirements to a third party, leaving you to focus on design and creativity.

Below we’ve got the latest trending crafts that are sure to inspire and excite you… But first, how can you successfully sell crafts?
Top 5 Tips For Successfully Selling Crafts
1. Focus On One Niche
As you know, there are many successful crafts to make and sell niches, but the key to success is to focus on one niche when selling crafts. This is because you can become the expert in the craft, have an online shop, brand, and packaging that fits seamlessly with your craft, and will easily allow for repeat clients and multiple orders. Having a focus on just one niche will also make promoting and marketing your products so much easier.
2. Promote Your Crafts
You have to be willing to put yourself and your crafts out there… after all, how else will you get your fabulous crafts in front of the eyes of people who will truly appreciate and love them? I recommend using SEO and Pinterest to promote your products. Want to make beautiful images to promote your products? Check out Canva,it’s free to use and will cater to all your design needs.
3. Have Great Packaging
Super thoughtful packaging really takes your crafts to the next level and makes your customers feel extra special. And the best thing? This is something that will really set your small, intimate brand apart from larger brands that don’t focus on the personal customer experience. Consider having a custom stamp made for you and use a third-party printer to get thank you stickers made.
4. Price Appropriately
One of the biggest mistakes I see time and time again from people selling their crafts is underpricing. Listen, even if the knitted hat only seemingly took 1 hour to create… how about all those years of your experience, learning, and honing your skill? A lot goes into creating crafts to sell so be sure to take into consideration the cost of materials, the years of experience you have, the time taken to create the item, and the average market price.
5. Be Consistent
Trust me when I say that you’ll love selling crafts online, but will definitely experience bumps in the road too… just as you would with most things worth doing. The key to success is being consistent, even when it’s tough, believing in success, and going for it! Don’t be afraid to keep trying and similarly, don’t be afraid to pivot if you see a different opportunity arise.
So with all those helpful tips said and done… let’s find out what’s hot right now in the world of crafts to make and sell…
