First Wholesale Order

Last week I told you about two of my big orders I've had lately (coasters and girl scout albums). I also recently had my first true wholesale order!!! I sold 20 Sorority Albums to a gift shop in Indiana.
I sent a sample album (shown above) and we made a few changes making the patterned paper and ribbons lighter and leaving off the stickers in the final albums. The gift shop owner decided since each girl has different taste, that leaving the stickers out would work better. Below is one of the final albums.
I would love to do more wholesale orders and this order made me realize that I need to get all my prices down on paper and have everything ready for the next big order :)

  2. I think they are both beautiful! But that was a good suggestion about the stickers. Something for me to keep in mind when making art journals! Have a great vacation day off work! {:-D

    My largest order of the same item was 7 necklaces for some bridesmaids, and that was enough. Ha ha.

  9. Congrats on the order! Yay!
    I found that I needed to have all my information about custom orders ready in advance, too. Now I can quickly respond to any inquiries - eliminates stress and insures a quick response to the potential customer!

  10. I hope this is the beginning of many, many wholesale orders for you! It's a great idea to let the girls customize their own too!

  11. I agree with both of Sharla's comments. Congrats on this big order! The album looks great.

    Getting a price guide together is a great idea. Having a PDF or something with all of your regular and wholesale prices broken down would be awesome.
