It's not even Thanksgiving yet. We think a lot of people don't buy cards this early. Also don't forget, one of GCU's features is the ability to send the cards directly to the recipients if desired, which is a great convenience if the buyer doesn't have a lot of time, so I doubt they'd want to send Christmas cards this early. Give it time.

Hi all-
I haven't experienced what could be termed a rush yet by any means, but I do have a  Smiley to share. Of the 3 original Christmas cards I put up last month, 1 sold 1 card, 1 sold 2 cards, and the third has sold 33 cards....and it was a test shot that was never intended to be turned into a card. I put it up just to see what would happen. Go figure!
 
Happy card-making!

Mine are picking up...I hope that after Thanksgiving it really gathers some steam. Fingers crossed! But whether they hit big or not, creating them has been a blast!

I've sold 15 Christmas cards--all of one design!  I think the sales for Christmas cards will really start to come in after Thanksgiving.

I haven't sold any of my Christmas cards yet, hopefully someone might buy one...but then it depends on people being dog lovers (plenty of those out there though Wink) I will have to get on and do some non dog one too.
I have only sold 5 cards in total so far...but it is still early days, and each one sold makes me smile so much, heaven knows what I will be like if I ever sell a bulk order... Grin
Good luck to everyone for the Christmas rush!

Hi
I thought I would give it a while before responding, but it`s now december and I haven`t sold a single Christmas card, it`s disappointing because I have worked hard getting them photographed, edited, designed and uploaded. I took a look at the card gallery and sadly when looking at the cards in individual themes (Christmas, Easter etc) they don`t give an option for "last" page, and only a few pages to click on. My cards and those of many other designers are buried because most people won`t bother to click on very many pages to view older cards.  It would be nice if there were more pages to click on and a"last" page so people can view older but just as lovely cards.  
When viewing my own store I can see a wider choice of pages to choose from... including "last", but not when I view other people`s stores or individual themes Sad

HI,
 
I've now sold 45 Xmas cards - but about 15 of them were for me! I had a surprise yesterday as I had a bulk sale of 16 on one of my early Xmas card designs, so you just never know - keep at it, because, for me, Xmas cards sales have picked up over the last week alone.
 
Good luck everyone  Smiley

Karen,  
Don't be discouraged if you have not sold any Christmas designs yet--there is still lots of time--remember many people send the cards direct to their friends from GCU.
Also, people coming to look for Christmas cards may not buy a Christmas card, but may buy some other card you have available, so you just never know! Smiley
