My Husband and I made these 2 Sandollar Directional signs for our destination wedding ad Reception… and just LOVED THEM… Everyone Ranted and raved about how much they loved them…I was thinking how AWESOME it might be to start selling them like on Etsy… What do you Bee’s Think? And would any of you be interested? Would LOVE everyones input!

Depends on your price. To be honest, if I wanted something like that and saw it for sale, I would probably try to make it myself unless you were cheap enough that the convenience of buying it outweighs the fact that they are a relatively simple looking project. They turned out really cute for you, though!

Very very cute! Shipping might drive your costs up a bit though as it is quite bulky and you’ll have to package it perfectly so it doesn’t bend/wreck 🙁

To be honest, probably not. It looks too flat and one diamentional.
I think the font and detail hold something to be desired. I think the design can be pushed a little further. I’m just trying to critique it a little I guess.
Is it just paper?
This is just my opinion. I’m VERY PICKY!

This is a cute idea! I had a beach themed wedding and made a lot of the projects myself. Its a very nice idea. I guess it depends how much you were planning on selling them for…
I’m pretty crafty so I’m the type of bride that would just copy cat it! 🙂

What are they exactly? Is it just to point you towards where the ceremony is? At first I thought it said “Elliott May” like that was his name… it took a second to see that it was “Elliott and Jennifer”… still, what are they for?

They were just Wooden directional signs to show people where to go for the ceremony and reception! 🙂

Yep! very cute. make a few to start out and see how it goes. You dont want to spend a ton of money on materials just incase they dont sell. You already have pictures you can post and I think it’s free to start an etsy page. just let your buyers know you will peronalize (obviously) 😀 Good luck!

It definitely fits a niche (destination/beach) wedding but its gonna be hell of a production to ship.
Have you thought about test driving another shape or design and maybe offering a variety in different sizes?
Have you looked at what other people are selling something like this for and if the demand is out there?
All things to consider, but I’m all for starting your own side business. You just might need to tweak a few things or have more of a selection before you take it to etsy and try it.
