2. Four to six cards per set.
3. 4" x 5"

I made all my own cards but if I were to buy some I would only buy individual cards.
4 cards in a set sounds right
most of my cards are 4" X 5"
For 8 cards, 16 to 18 dollars
I like all different images in a set.

1. Depends. Birthday and Christmas cards are purchased in sets. Everyday and the smaller holidays are purchased individually.

3. Standard sizes.
Either 4*6 or 5*7.
4. $15-25
5. Christmas can be identical sets. I prefer all other sets to come in a variety.

Simi said...

1. I prefer to purchase cards individually. I hate having the same cards to write on over and over again. Change is my middle name :-)

2. If I do buy sets, I want it to be worthwhile to buy, so there must be at least 8 cards if not more. if it only comes with four cards, forget about it, unless it is something so unusual and out of the ordinary that I must have it no matter what.

3. I don't have a favorite size. If I like them, I buy them, no matter what size.

4. If that set of 8 cards was something really unusual, $5.00, actually if it was something so spectacular, I'd pay basically anything under $12.00

5. As I have said before in answer #1, change is my middle name, so I'd love different cards, each for a different occasion.

Thanks a ton!
Simi

Stephanie said...

1. I prefer individual cards
2. I like sets of 4-6 cards
3. I like 4.25" x 5.5" (because they're easy to make), but other sizes are good, too
4. probably $16 for a set of 8, more if there is a lot of detail/embellishment
5. I like different cards but with a similar theme, color, or pattern

Soapy Blessings said...

1. Do you prefer to purchase individual cards or cards in sets?
It depends on what the set contains. Mostly I purchase cards on an individual basis.

2. If you like sets, how many cards per set? Usually 6 to 8 per set.

3. What is your favorite size for card sets? Size? Hmmm, I gravitate toward about 4x5 size mostly.

4. How much would you pay for a set of 8 cards? Depending on the style of the cards, I would pay up to $25.

5. Do you prefer sets of identical cards, or sets of cards for different occasions? I like both actually. If I like one particular design, I generally want more than one. Although I have bought both, I usually buy sets that are all the same.

Thanks so much,

Trish

karinsgarden said...

I prefer individual cards.

If I were to buy a set of say note cards--4 to 6 cards is good.

A2

I'd pay between $12 to $18 depending on detail, quality and complexity.

different cards in a set are cooler!

I hope I win!

Miscelena said...

1. Do you prefer to purchase individual cards or cards in sets?

I like my cards to be unique, so I'm much more likely to buy one-of-a-kinds for individual occasions like birthdays ... if it's a gorgeous design that I can see using as an all-occasion note card, I'd buy a small set.

2. If you like sets, how many cards per set?

8 or fewer.

3. What is your favorite size for card sets?

4"x5" +/-

4. How much would you pay for a set of 8 cards?

Depends on details - up to $20-ish if they were very involved designs... but I'd be more likely to buy if they were closer to $2 ea.

5. Do you prefer sets of identical cards, or sets of cards for different occasions?

I'm fond of the similar-designs-for-different-occasions, or similar-but-not-quite-the-same designs.

Linda SS said...

1) I would be more apt to buy in a set.
2) 6-8 is a good number.
3) 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 would be my preferance.
4) No more than $20.00 unless they are extra-ordinary.
5) Unless it were a set of invitations, I'd prefer a variety.

Thanks:)

1. both individual and sets
2. 8-12
3. 4 x 6
4. $10-20

Bean said...

1. I prefer to buy sets of all-occasion/blank cards

2. 6-8

3. I like odd sizes that take extra stamps :)

4. $20 (with shipping)

5. I like sets of cards along the same theme, but with small differences in each one (like the same pattern in different colors, small variations in pattern, etc..)

ara133photography said...

1. Do you prefer to purchase individual cards or cards in sets?

I guess it depends - probably individually, but if it's for an occasion where I send out lots of cards (halloween, christmas...) then I might buy a set.

2. If you like sets, how many cards per set?

maybe 4?

3. What is your favorite size for card sets?

5x7?

4. How much would you pay for a set of 8 cards?

Up to $22.00

5. Do you prefer sets of identical cards, or sets of cards for different occasions?

I would definitely prefer sets of different cards for occasions. I LOVE trying to match up a card to a recipient, and it's much more fun if the cards are different :)

I forgot to mention - my etsy user name is also ara133photography. Thanks!! :)

MrsDragon said...

1. Typically, individually.
2. Usually when I buy card sets it's for mass mailings, so 10+
3. I love quarter page sized cards.
4. Um, depends on the cards, materials, styles, etc. If they were all handmade I would expect to pay more. I would expect to pay at least $20.
5. Unless they are for mass mailings I like each card to be different, although they can still be for the same occasion.
