Pricing Your Work
Reply #30 - Jan 9th, 2008 at 1:53am
 
Out here in Phoenix, I sell custom S/L's for $30 & up for wood, and $35 & up for various Acrylics.  I just sold one I made out of Craft Supply's TruStone Turquoise for $55.  Euro/Designer pens go for $5-10 more.  Cigars sell for $5-10 more than Euro's.  For a pencil, I will add $5 to the price of a similar pen.  A P&P set sells for twice the pen price.  I only sell by word of mouth, no shows, advertising, or galleries.  Of course, at those prices, I only sold about 50 this year and took in the same amount as I did selling 75 last year.  I currently have orders for about 20, and no time to turn them during tax season.

Jim, feel free to send those orders my way.  I'll charge what you charge so that I'm not stealing your customers with lower prices.  I'll even give you a finder's cut of every sell.  Don't loose a customer because of work

All the Galleries I work with sell on 40% comission  only. I guess if you had a big enough name they may buy up front.
