more cards for the friend that is sending to clients for next year Thanksgiving...not sure what to charge per card, she has 300 clients. We negociated to only making 50 cards for now and then go from there...feedback on cost would be appreciated, thanks for looking.

Depending on the card! I go from $1.00 to $2.00.
To me it is more important to try to sell some than to make a profit. As I'm going to keep stamping either way so a little pay back is always better to me personaly.I have gotten more sale by keeping the price lower.Many more repete custmers too.Just my thought! Your card is worth $2.00

thanks so much for the response..my work has improved with experience. I mentioned $1.50 to her just a estimate, was not sure. I may adjust depending on cost of supplies. Ribbon is the only thing that I will have to really worry about. I have plenty of the rest...and I will stamp no matter what, would be nice to get my work out there and get a little profit. Thanks again for the praise and comments....love this website so much.. is addicting
See, I am of the thinking that you may snag more fish (i.e, customers) if you lower your card and mass produce them. Will she let you stamp your contact info on the back!?!? If so than I would charge her $1 a card- that way she's more likely to send them to all 300 clients and you'll have massive exposure.
Really, it depends on the business... if she's a big business I say charge her more as she can afford the write off. If it's a smaller business (and she's a friend) i say charge her the buck a piece and that helps out both of you!!!
I know, call me generous!!! hee hee!
My average cost per card is $1.50. I put my name on the back so the recipient knows who to call if they like the card and want to order some themselves. I think the lower cost brings repeat customers and like the others have said, I'm going to stamp anyway, and money coming back to me is nice. It feels good when someone likes your cards so much they want to purchase them to send to their friends. It's also nice to get paid for something you already enjoy doing. Also, since you are mass producing it's easier because you already have the design and measurements figured out, which to me is the hard part. Making multiples is the easy part.
