Decorative Mats



I have been laboring over the idea of selling mats on my website. Since anyone can purchase a mat at their favorite Mart store, it seemed silly to sell them on the internet. Then I thought, I could paint the mat, stamp the mat, decorate the mat with scrapbooking supplies or just do some unusual cuts on the mat. This way, these are mats you cannot find easily.


I guess I am blogging about this to get your opinion. Well, to be honest, I really do not want to put a bunch of new items on my website if it is a goofy idea. Messing with my website or even my blog somewhat scares me. I am afraid that if I goof something up, it will take me forever to figure out what I did and I am always goofing up something. LOL!!!


Anyway if you have an idea to share, I would love to hear from you.

I think decorated mats would be really nice, but how would you decide what theme would sell well? Would you have to have a big inventory of different designs? That might be too much. If you decide to do it, I think you should start with just a few different designs and go from there. Maybe baby boy and baby girl would be good sellers? I don't really know... just throwing out some things that first popped into my head. Whatever you decide, I wish you the best with it! =]

You could always showcase a few different types and then offer to do custom mats......perhaps with someones favorite animal, hobby, names of their children, Nana, Papa, etc. Then you wouldn't have to make them unless you recieved an order.I like the one you have on your blog.

If you sell to overseas customers then mats would be a good idea as you can't buy them very easily in many places. But I Agree with what Angie Berry says, it might be a lot of hassle for not much profit.
