Last year, much to our own delight, UncommonGoods began offering free, printable downloads. Our assortment currently includes party kits, cheese tasting tags, birthday cards (the Cat Tao birthday cards are my favorite) and diy paper fortune cookies. Our printable items are designed to be a great solution for that final gift-giving detail – the card. You can download and print our two Mother’s Day cards here and here, and if you like, decorate her present with DIY Paper Flowers using our Printable Paper Roses and Wildflowers templates. Below is our step-by-step, illustrated how-to.
The next Instagram Challenge theme is MOTHER’S DAY. Over the past few weeks, we’ve collected your favorite #Momisms, rounded up creative finds for every mode of mom, and even whipped up a DIY project that will show mom that you’re not too old to make something she’ll be proud to hang on her fridge! Now all that’s left to do is celebrate.
As a creator of original designs or handmade products you’ve tackled the most important part of your business, what to sell. Now you find yourself taking on new questions that may be harder to answer. You’re starting to ask, “Where can I sell my handmade items?” and inevitably “How do I sell my designs online?” We’re happy to answer your first question and encourage you to check out our submission page, but before you click that link, take some time to think about whether your product is ready for retail.
Graduation season is coming, and soon countless students will walk across a stage toward their individual destinies: college, adventure, or a new career. Very exciting! But let’s be honest: commencement ceremonies usually entail a tedious wait through a seemingly endless roster of names, peppered with cliché-riddled speeches. How do you make this super-meaningful, yet often dull occasion more memorable for your favorite graduate? We think one of the nicest ways is congratulating them with a beautiful and inspirational jewelry gift to mark their hard-earned milestone. Bearing profound, uplifting messages, these necklaces and bracelets make ideal graduation gifts (and mercifully rescue you from the daunting task of crafting a sentimental speech yourself).
To help you choose the right gift, we put together a collection of our favorite inspirational jewelry pieces. Some of our pieces feature inspiring quotes while others are more symbolic. We tracked down motivational quotes to complement theses abstract pieces to illuminate their meaning. Honestly, this post is so packed with forceful wisdom, we’re afraid it might explode. Read at your own risk!

Our makers never fail to motivate us, encourage our creativity, and fill us with inspiration. So, when a new design enters our assortment, we’re always excited to learn more about the people behind the product.
