Occassionally I get requests for Yarn Sample Cards of all the colors in my Tilda Yarn Collection, which you can purchase in my Yarn Shop. There are so many shades to choose from - over 70!!! - and I totally understand that it might be easier to choose your favorite colors from real yarn samples than from pictures on a computer screen.
So far I have not been able to supply my customers with Yarn Sample Cards and to be honest, not many big yarn brands do either. And everytime I ask for yarn samples and get the answer that it is not available, I get disappointed and think it is poor service...
I've been pondering this and tried to come up with ideas of how to make Yarn Sample Cards in an easy, quick and cost efficient way... And so, when a loyal returning customer asked for a Yarn Sample Card I couldn't decline her wish. I had to make her one and at the same time see for myself what it takes to prepare one.
Well, it took me a good couple of hours and a million snippets of yarn, a bit of creative cutting and pasting, handwriting and tying and Voila! My very first Yarn Sample Cards are made.
They look good for being a first trial but this is unfortunately nothing I can provide for my customers. At least not for free. It is waaay to time consuming and fiddly. And even if it is fun, I just can't afford spending hours on making Yarn Sample Cards. So my question to you is:
What would you be comfortable with paying for 2 A4/Letter sized Yarn Sample Cards like this? 5 USD? 10 USD? 15 USD?
Another question is:
Do you have any other advice on how I can make Yarn Sample Cards in an easy, quick and cost efficient way?
Any ideas and feed back on this topic are welcome. It would feel awesome to be able to offer Yarn Sample Cards to my yarn loving buyers. There just must be a way...
