So, here’s the deal. I am trying to work out what to charge for these based on my costs which include the stickers themselves, the PayPal fees and shipping.
Based on rough estimates, here is what I’d have to charge currently to break even. (And by break even, I mean pay for the stickers, PayPal and postage, which doesn’t cover my time, envelopes or the art cost.)
1 Sticker, $1.50 (@ $1.50 each)
4 Stickers, $3.50 (@ $.88 each)
Of course, I could do quantities of more then 4, and I’d hope most of you would want at least 4.
Would you rather buy them in chunks of say 4 or more or be able to buy just one at a time? If I don’t allow 1 at a time until I’ve got enough pre-orders, it means a lot more money coming in to help me cover my upfronts to get the stickers run.
I personally buy stickers in chunks so I have lots to stick onto everything. They end up on my scooter, my laptop, my car, handed to friends, etc.
As I’ve said many times, I only charge what covers my costs and no more. If there is any extra, it just goes back into covering costs for more of the stickers etc. I wish I made a little on these so I could fund the next run for the next year but I don’t like charging a lot, I want it to be so affordable you feel like you are truly getting my love from afar and a great price.
Let me break these costs down for you so you see where the money goes:
1 Sticker would cost:
$.60 for the sticker, $.32 for PayPal fees and $.45 for postage (US/CA)
4 Stickers would cost:
$2.40 for the stickers, $.37 for the PayPal fees and $.45 for postage (US/CA)
Anymore then 4 and the weight of the envelope brings postage up to $.62, and so on.
So. There’s the breakdown. What are your thoughts?
I will start a pre-order on these as soon as I figure out what you guys want to do.
In the meantime, please spread the word to everyone you know. I can’t make this happen without your love and support.
