Step 1: Design.
When I created my earring cards, I downloaded the vertical card template for Photoshop from Vista Print. (You can download it here)
I then proceeded to design a card I liked for my work. You can see my original designs, with my logo, here.
Since I created the design for Vista Print, I simply uploaded the design into their site. I then ordered my cards. This is your waiting period. (I like the prices at Vista Print, but not the shipping costs and time. Since I created these in the off season, I had time to wait for the cards.)
Step 2. Buy Supplies
While you are waiting, you will need to order or buy the following supplies.
-Earring card adapters (Available from JewelrySupply.com)
-1/16 inch round hole punch (Available at your local craft store)
-Guide for hole placement (I use a black flock plastic earring card like these)
Step 3. Once the cards arrive…
Use your guide to determine the location of your earring holes. Then use your hole punch to make the holes.
Step 4. Adapt!
Step 5. Refine!
And now the earring cards are ready to use!
