Hey guys, I think this has been touched on briefly, in passing, but I wanted to see if I could consolidate this information in an easier to search topic.
When we get our GF, I’m sure many of us have very creative friends who will want to use our Lasers and get to play around with it. In your opinion, what is a fair way of negotiating cost?
For instance, charge $x per hour? per job? per piece? per “visit”?
Do you make them do all the design on their end? Do you charge to “proof” it before lasering the design (Kerf adjustments and many other “easy mistakes”)?
Do you provide the material? Do you make them bring the material to laser onto?
I’ve never even been in a Hackerspace to see how they do things. I’m specifically NOT referring to professional use of lasers (customers walking into a store and can get something lasered onto an item that they purchased in the retail section).
