Okay everyone I know there are alot of small business owners on here as well as customers of the products that we make I think that starting a thread asking WHAT WOULD YOU PAY for this item would help alot of people of in pricing there goods to be competitive.
I will get the ball rolling by post a couple of my projects
Please keep in mind when posting prices things like:
tools used to make it
14 x 7"
3 different colors of spray paint
semi gloss poly
cnc laser (30min), table saw, jointer, and planer used
9.7 x 9.7"
49 neodymium magnets placed by hand
cnc router (17 minutes), jointer, planer
wood burning iron (for logo on back side)
semi gloss poly
cnc machine (5 min 2 tools), planer, jointer, cnc laser (30 min)
Where do you plan to sell them? Online? Custom? In a gift store?
hmmm I guess just like a general pricing on peoples different items
I know that items sold in different places command different prices
but I think here what would help alot of people out would be a initial number that enters your head on what you would or think it should be sold for
I’ve created several clocks like those, albeit with roman numerals v-carved (no laser), as well as the name and date, all v-carved, and a 3d carve of the intertwined wedding rings in a dish. Plus I hand-painted all the letters in black, and the rings in gold, so I have a lot more than 90 minutes in mine…
I’ve only given mine as gifts, but I’ve been asked on several occasions what I would charge to create one, and I’ve said $100 each time and not met with any push back. I have several orders just based on my gift giving, thankfully they’re for June - Sept of next year, so they’re low on the job list right now.
thanks yeah that was the kinda response I was looking for and I am sure many other people are interested to hear feedback from other makers on what they think about when the price a item
you can do all the market research in the world but its nice to share thoughts between other makers but yeah thats how I price alot of my items just off market research
