  10. Saw this idea in an online forum (unedited) –
    • “i make and sell personalised kids placemats and door signs i sell them on ebay and carboot sales and make quite a lot of money, i sell them for £2.50 each or 3 for £6, I make them with all kids favourite characters from pepper pig to harry potter, I take orders and can make them with any picture they like. they usually just tell me what there kids are into and then ill email them some examples and they decide which 1 they like best.
      I personalise them with any text they like, the most popular are the placemats as I’ve found a lot of mums have found that they can get their kids to sit at the dinner table a lot easier with them. they usually have something along the lines of EMMAS DINNER or JACK’S DINNER DO NOT TOUCH/ SOPHIE SITS HERE.
      I find this a great little money maker as people always love to be able to help design their own stuff for their kids.”
