Business Description

Listing By Owner and Sale By Owner.

Letters Yard was established in 2008, with 3 priorities in mind.
1. Low overhead cost. You can operate the business out of your house, small warehouse, your current business space.
2. Owner and 1 employee operating the business.
3. Low inventory cost.

The business has 5 sources of incomes that add up to the total profit.
1. lettersyard.com
2. Amazon
3. Etsy
4. Wholesale/Bulk Purchase
5. Direct to consumers

This niche market has 3 busy seasons and 1 off season. March and April can gross an average of $35,000 plus a month. October, November and December can gross an average of $25,000 plus a month. Any other months will have an average of $8,000 a month. June, July, and August would be off season with an average of $4,500 plus a month in retail sales, but wholesale will still be strong.

This business model is great as you can make new inventory on a daily basis. When out of stock you can simply run the machine and restock the inventory within minutes. There is no inventory buildup or shortage wait time.

All machines will be included, computers, and I will train with you onsite for 2 weeks. I will continue to provide you with phone and email supports afterward.

Why should someone buy this business?
This business is perfect for someone that would like to add-on to their existing business or simply taking over a business that has track record for over 10 years. This business can keep 1-person busy full time or hire 1 employee to operate the daily tasks for you. 80% of the products can be made and restock at any given time. Therefore, this business doesn't require a large amount of up fronting for inventory.

If you already owned a retail store business or online, then simply add this established business to your daily operation. Easy process of process orders, pick & pack, ship.

For serious interested buyer, I have prepared:
- 2015, 2016, 2017 Proof of incomes
- 1099-K from Amazon, Square Payment, Website Payment
- 2017 Profit or Loss Tax Return
- List of Items Sold

- Focus on growing the website, Etsy, Amazon and you will increase sales.
- Offer more custom products to the business.
- Use social media more to bring in more new customers.
- Focus on opening new wholesale accounts.

What work have you put into the store?
Since 2008 when I first started the business I built lettersyard.com with Magento back end and at the time the website was the most modern, user friendly, and great selections that stood out from my competitors. I know this is one of the main key to this business success and early this year 2018 I made the decision to transfer the website to Shopify. Shopify offer a very safe and secure platform for store owner and customers as well, that is my number 1 priority. Upgraded online store platform and SEO (Search Engine Optimize) has been in process.

Production: I have created a library of files for the machines to run on a daily basis. The next owner or employee can simply open a file and start producing right away. All settings and templates have been created already.

Materials: I will help the next owner source out materials locally based where they live. I know exactly what price point for each material should be and how to pick quality materials for the right price.

Manufacturing: I will help the next owner connect with the manufacturer that I have worked with to manufacture the Greek Paddles and any other wood related products. I can guarantee the prices are great enough to beat out any major suppliers in the USA.

Loyal Customers: This business have a great number of loyal customers that will come back every year.
