One of Sarah’s biggest freelance jobs so far has been designing the Brilliant Business Planner! She landed this job by seeing a need for her service and reaching out to Sarah and Beth Anne. This is a great lesson for any entrepreneur — it never hurts to ask. The worst thing that can happen is that someone says no, but on the flip side you could land a great job and a great partnership!
This is where Pinterest came in. I decided that I was going to use Pinterest as my marketing platform. I wasn't going to spread myself thin across multiple social media arenas. I was going to focus on one, and I knew that Pinterest was the right one for me because it was where I went when I was hungry for printables, so I was familiar with how I could leverage it for my own. Also, Pinterest has this magic fairy dust that is great for businesses - it puts its users in a take-action/shopping frame of mind. When people are on Pinterest, they are typically there because they want to improve some aspect of their life. They are looking for solutions, which often results in a purchase.
Do you need a great last minute handmade gift for the traveler in your life? If so, this personalized vintage map stationery set is the perfect fit. For this stationery kit you need white A6 envelopes, white text weight paper and cards stock paper and your customized PDFs of the three printables. Start by downloading and installing the free font Museo Slab which you can download here. When you double click and open both the belly band and the note card PDFs, you can simply click onto the text and edit with your own copy and the name and monogram of the recipient. The envelope liner does not have any text so these are ready to print onto a text weight paper. I like to print my belly bands onto text weight as well and of course the note cards onto cards stock. Once printed, trim all of the pieces to assemble your stationery set. Maybe when you are done you can print a set for yourself too. Enjoy! ~ Lia
You can use your regular weight printer paper! Really! The idea of a printable is that it’s artwork that might be temporary or easy to switch out for something new. However, if you’ve fallen in love with one of my printables (aw, shucks!) and would like a more permanent piece of art, I recommend photo paper (matte), cardstock, premium (heavyweight) paper or archival paper. Make sure to check your printer settings and adjust the paper accordingly so it will not get stuck inside your printer. This is especially true for thicker paper.
