Pricing Your Items
Should you choose to sell items made from my pattern, I've included the pricing calculator below, which takes into account all aspects of creating the item—the cost of the supplies, number of hours it takes to complete, and overhead/markup. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at email@example.com.
Pricing depends on how much time it takes you to make the item and how much you spend on materials. But it’s also a little more than that (overhead, profit, etc). Here’s the most basic formula (2 STEPS) I recommend for pricing handmade items:
STEP 1: Hourly Rate + Cost of Materials = Wholesale Price
The wholesale price only covers your time + cost of materials, so now you have to add overhead and other costs (if there are any…shipping, packaging, website, tags, marketing time/fees, gas/travel, selling fees, etc). And of course you need to make a profit, so then you have to do a STEP 2.
STEP 2: Wholesale Price x Number Between 1.5-2.25 = Retail Price
To decide on a number between 1.5-2.25, it depends on how much “other expenses” you have for your business. If you don’t have any or very many, select 1.5. If you have a moderate amount, 1.75. If you have more, 2. If you have a lot, 2.25.
You can also Google “how to price handmade items” and there will be several blogs that populate on the topic.
