A little market research please... on happy birthday cards

Today, I am doing a little market research on happy birthday cards.

For years I've had an urge to produce greetings cards – happy birthday cards, thank you cards. I have millions of designs like the ones above, I've just picked out a couple of randoms here.

Would appreciate your thoughts, are they worth pursuing?

The inners would be printed in a bright coordinating colour, but, left blank mainly. They would come with a contrasting brightly coloured envelope, so the bright pink for example. Retail would be around £1.50-£1.75.

These are not completed designs, just testing the water! They would be under a 'brand' and all follow a similar look and feel.

Any feedback greatly appreciated, thank you!.

I think they look fab.

I love the fact of the inners being in a bright coordinating colour.

I love the second and third and think bright inners left blank for own words is a real plus. Fabulous price, too. I'd buy them

When do they come out I am in for some - it is obviously a very competitive market but seriously I think you are on to something here

A friend of mine made cards for a while but there was so much competition that she gave up. You would need to find a good outlet for them... but I am sure that you know all this. Give it a go - they are great.

I love the idea of brightly coloured inlays. Go for it.

I have a shop in Bury St Edmunds and would love to stock a selection of your cards, if you are interested.
I would also like to know if you could make branded cards specifically for my business?
I look forward to hearing from you.

Beautiful cards! I rarely buy greeting cards because most of them are a bit boring.. these feel personal and fun! I love that the inners are in color. I also like the format of the cards. Keep it up, I believe you're on to something! Very inspiring!
