I think many of us here purchased the glowforge for reasons which include, hobby, new business or expanding on an existing business. I wanted to open a thread to discuss ideas with pricing your projects. Many times when starting a business this is by far one of the hardest things to do so with an open forum like this figured we can all help each other.
I know there are many larger companies out there at least in my state like “Things Remembered” where many of my friends go during holidays and special occasions and they charge an arm and a leg, or maybe can charge this because they dont’ have much competition, or maybe their pricing is spot on, not sure.
I have noticed this place charges for the product avg being $40-50+ The first word is $10, and each additional word is $3.
I am trying to possibly base my pricing on possibly print time + material cost calculator and design. Haven’t figured this all out yet but just wanted to get your thoughts and start a discussion going on this.
You can give your input on other pricing tiers companies use that you know and your thoughts on how an easy calculation can be done on your projects.
