So, I've got a curious question for everyone really. What standards do you go buy when you set prices on your crafts? Can anyone suggest a good way to price something and what to figure in when doing so? When I price my own stuff, I typically go by just how much it costs to make the item, not really the time. I love to make them, I hate to price them if I'm selling them.. Undecided So I figured maybe I'd see what others thought about it and how they went about it. Smiley

I always include these in my costs...

Materials (covers supplies)
Labor (what you'll be paid)
Overhead (general items, glue, tape, etc.)
Profit (what you put back into your business)
