Homemade Earring Cards


Homemade earring cards accent the look of handcrafted jewelry. The advantage to making specialized packaging for your earrings is you can design something just as unique as your jewelry designs. Customers perceive earrings hanging on professional-looking display cards to have more value than those that are not and will, therefore, be willing to pay more for them. If you possess enough creativity to design your own earrings, making earring cards should be a snap.

Design the Earring Cards

  • Design your earring cards so they are no larger than a standard business card, which measures 3 ½ by 2 inches. Use a blank business card template in a publishing program on your computer if you have one. If not, use a word processing program. Include the name of your jewelry design business. Put the wording toward the bottom of the card so the earrings won’t cover it. Choose a font and color that will complement the style of your jewelry. Make the font big enough so it can be easily seen. If you have a website, include it on your earring card. Place the web address in smaller letters below the name of your business. Feel free to add appealing information about your jewelry such as if it features semiprecious stones or precious metals.

    Print the earring card onto a heavy card stock. You can use perforated business cards purchased from an office supply store. If you print it on regular card stock, use a paper cutter to trim the cards to size.

Add Color and Personality

  • Use attractive scrapbook paper as a colorful background for your earring cards. When choosing a card stock, take into the account the venue in which your jewelry is sold. If you sell your jewelry designs in an art studio, a solid, more subdued, paper may be more appropriate. If you sell at arts and crafts fairs, customers there may be drawn to brightly colored, patterned designs.

    Cut the scrapbook paper into cards that are slightly wider and longer than the earring cards. Paste the back of the earring card onto the right side of the scrapbook paper so a border of the scrapbook paper shows around the edge.

Finishing Touches

  • Use a straight pin to poke holes for the earring hooks to slide into the cards.

    You may purchase adhesive earring card hangers to stick onto the back of the cards so the earring cards can hang from a display. Or use a whole punch to make a whole in the top so the cards can hang from a hook.
