Okay so here I am, reading up, doing my research, designing, preparing for a new online business initiative allegedly called Legacy Prints. This initiative allows friends to purchase atypical postcards from the comfort of their home, at the click of a [few] button, at a reasonable price. As a writer and one who loves to give something that ‘comes from the heart’, I delight in penning down words of encouragement and love on print and giving them to my loved ones. It’s like giving a piece of ‘you’ to your loved ones. However, I sometimes find it hard to locate nice postcards. Either the designs are too outdated, or it’s way too expensive. Hence the idea of Legacy Prints.
Looking to price them at a reasonable rate (but not at a cutthroat price ah, I am not a charity!), I am hoping to also turn it into a social enterprise – giving x percentage to charities centered on disadvantaged children because education is the key out of poverty and our nation’s children are our nation’s future leaders – when I break even.
If you’re reading this, may I ask if you would purchase this if this product and service was made available to you? Up to how much are you willing to pay per print/set of 3? Is there any advice you can give me or on how I can serve you better?
Editor’s note as of 11 September 2013:
It will be a social enterprise right from start.
