In which case, if you are not a business, does it really matter if you
trickle feed these cards into the ebay system 100 a time. Surely, not
being a business it does not matter how long it takes to shift them.
However, if you want to get rid quickly because they are in the way you
can always sell them as a job lot.

As for the card stock, how is this "handmade"? Surely it is only the
raw materials you are selling for others to turn into handmade products.
