  • Pricing help?

    Hia!

    I need some advice on the pricing of a new product i am trying out.

    I've made some handmade cards and attached either earrings or a bracelet. The jewellery is hand made by me and it comes in a little box with tissue paper for presentation.

    I usually charge about £3 for earrings and £4 - £6 for a bracelet. How much do card makers sell their cards for? Mine aren't the best cards but they are good enough (i think......)

    So, how much do people think?

    Hmm, I think the earrings are the main focus, but the card is a new and exciting/interesting way to sell/display them so poeple will find them appealing.
    So you need to charge more than you would for just earrings.
    How about £4.50?

      My thoughts exactly!

      I'm still struggling with the bracelet ones. They need to be more than earrings so i was thinking £6.........?

      I dunno..........

        Depending on the size of the card and how much they cost to make. If they are c6 (qtr of an A4), i would add about £1.50 to the original price of the jewellery. If the cards are bigger with a lot of work involved then i would say between £2-2.50 on top of jewellery price.

        Remember these will be bought for someone as a gift, therefore you are saving them having to buy a seperate card which could cost a lot more from a shop, so don't feel shy in charging them for it.

            Wot a good idea!!
            I agree that people will be buying these as a gift for someone so i would think £5.00 wouldn't be out of the way for the earrings card but a bracelet you could charge about £7.50?
            If you think how much you normally spend on someones birthday that would be a really good little pressie.
            I'm sure they will sell well!!

              Thanks everyone!

              The cards are c6 so say £3 + £1.50 for the card (the boxes were 20p each too) so £4.50 or £5.00 should be about right for earrings. I'm still not sure about the braclets.......i'm thinking between £6 & £7 but not sure......

              I'll post some pics when i get home (if i'm not too embarrased!)

                  Hi Laura

                  I have some cards with Hair Bands, Mobile Phone Charms and Bag Charms all attached they are boxed and I sell them for £6 - £6.50 they are 1/2 A4 size whatever that is.

                  I think your pricing is on the right track - and the bracelet one would need to be more expensive as the jewellery item is more expensive.

                  Looking forward to seeing them tomorrow.

                  See ya

                    Your necklaces and bracelets are very nice, i had a look, but i didn`t see any cards so i couldn`t comment on them.
