You don’t neccessarily need to make a ton of things. I would focus on one thing first and then put those up and see what sells.

I would also look into silk screening if you want to do notecards. The paint gives notecards a really polished and professional look. It is really easy to do with not a lot of start up costs (I silk screened in high school for a textile class I took). Actually I’m pulling out my old gear right now to silk screen some napkins since no one on Etsy has what I want at a cheap price. 🙂

If you aren’t too good with designing images from scratch, you can always go to a stock photo website. That is what I did for the graphics on my invites, but then I designed the invites, programs, stationary, etc. using that image. I think it cost me $1 for the graphic.

I’m not sure what type of silk screening machine they have. I just made mine out of an old wooden frame with a fine meshing screen. Then I bought the chemicals to make the media, coat the screen in that, and let it dry. Afterward I take a transparent of my design, stick it on the screen, then take it out for some sun exposure (5-10 minutes), wash it off, and I have my screen. If it is an industrial silk screening machine, chances are they have the frames. You would just need to prepare the screen.
