How to find card making jobs from home

Card making jobs from home aren't readily advertised, but opportunities do exist. So how do you go about finding them?

If you want to join an established card making business, it's important to start building a portfolio of your work. Card makers are hired based on merit, and to be chosen you'll need to stand out from the crowd. We recommend that you look for a niche in the market and fill it.

You'll rarely find card making jobs advertised on big job search websites like Monster (monster.co.uk) or Total Jobs (totaljobs.com). That's because it can cost hundreds of pounds to advertise here, and considering that card makers work on such narrow margins, that's a price that they're unwilling to pay.

Instead, concentrate your search on local media and radio websites. Advertising here is much more affordable. You should also check out free sites like Gumtree for regularly updated job listings. Remember, however, that you don't need to stick to your local media or your local Gumtree - because cards are so portable, the company can really be based anywhere.

Word of mouth is one of the best ways to find card making jobs from home. You'll need to build a solid reputation for your card making skills. If the manager of the local craft shops consistently hears good things about you, you may be in luck.

Finally, consider setting up your own card making business. The internet has made it easier than ever for small companies to sell goods to a wide audience.
