I have a friend from church who has made an odd design request for a set of coasters.  As you have probably already seen, I start with travertine or marble 4"x4" tiles and my coasters have designs on them.  This customer wants blank coasters, that is .... no designs on them at all.

This is just totally strange to me.  I have never even thought about this as an option.  I feel it is almost like cheating a customer by not spending time applying a design to the coasters.  I spend time coming up with designs and trying to choose good colors and so on.

So my question is this .... do I fulfill this order as requested?  If so, since I am not applying a design but just putting felt on the bottom, do I charge the same price?  FYI ... Normally I charge locals $20 per set of 4 coasters.

If you have not seen my work, go to www.customcoastersbycindy.com to see what I do ... if that helps you answer my question.  Grin

God Bless,

Given enough coffee, I could rule the world!

If applying the felt is no big deal, double your cost of the tiles.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.
