Katie's designs got the whole UncommonGoods team singing carols! Are you singing praises for these colorful cards?

Once again, I love the cards but there is no way I'd spend $22.50 for 6 of them.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm happy to help explain the cost a little more. My cards are printed in very small batches, and everything from design, ink-mixing, printing, cutting, scoring, folding and packing is carefully done one-at-a-time by hand, by me. It's like the "farm to table" of stationery-- no mass production, no clip art, no middle men.

These are amazing. Hand drawn by a sharpie (my favorite item ever) and WOW! The price is high but I would maybe send them to my closest friends or really special people only....

I think these are beautiful. But, it's just not realistic that I would ever buy 6 cards for this price when I send out over 100 cards. I would love to be able to afford these someday, but I'm nowhere close to being able to do that.

Why do we have to pay so much for so little? With how many things are out there to help make card making faster like Cricuts, I honestly doubt it took the creator long to make these. 22 dollars is ridiculous.

These are my absolute favorite of the cards that come up so far. I would definitely buy a couple boxes of these to send out to the people that I'm closest to.

While I gave these the thumbs up because I like the design, 22.50 for 6 cards I feel to high a price to pay for them. It would cost me almost 100 dollars for the cards alone to send 20-25 christmas cards to people.

Once again, I love the cards, and I don't begrudge any artist a living wage. However, I think if you want to get into the Christmas card business you need to look into mass production so the price will be feasible for more people. Assuming I could afford $22.50 for 6 cards, which I can't (and I make way more than an average income), I couldn't justify paying extra to send a handmade card when I know it's going to end up in the trash along with the 50-100 other holiday cards the recipient will get in the next few weeks. I will spend that much to get a card for a close friend, because I know s/he will likely keep it, at least for a little while, but even then I wouldn't pay to have it shipped to me and then pay postage AGAIN to mail it to my friend.

This card stands out nicely. Very festive! lol @Kiki "I won't begrudge any artist a living wage, but...well, here I go!" I also look forward to Ruv getting into the card making business herself (using Cricut) and doing gangbusters against this outrageously priced, weak competition.
