Hey. I've been collecting embroidery transfers of various vintages with an eye towards selling them online, and I'm just curious about how best to sell them. Would you rather buy embroidery designs individually at a lower cost, or by the whole page at a higher cost? I'm still in the early stages of setting this up, but my website is oldschoolsupplies.b logspot.com My pricing ideas were 50 cents for smaller designs going up by size and around five dollars per page depending. All ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

Hmm thats a really good idea selling them individually but Im not sure.  Personally Id be more apt to purchase 1 pattern that I really like for .50 cents than a bunch for 5 bucks.  When it comes to vintage patterns really all I do is copy them onto transfer paper with transfer pen. So maybe even copies? Thats probably illegal. Im more rambling than helping sorry  Embarrassed

Are you selling them as copies that need to be traced or as hot iron transfers? I would look on ebay and get a feel what other people are doing. I've seen them out there both ways for various prices. I think I would like to buy individual hot iron transfers for a reasonable price rather than the whole set. I personally wouldn't buy copies of patterns online that I need to trace, it seems like a rip off to me... but that's just me.
Good luck!

They are vintage patterns on transfer paper. They come from books and magazines.
