A little while back I got an email about some more information on how to price etched glass work. Here is his email with some of my responses:
“Hi, my name is Dan. I have recently got your e book, glass etching secrets. It has helped me so much. Thanks a lot. I guess the only question I have left, is there any advice or web pages that can help me with a guideline on how much I should be selling etched mugs for? I have made a few custom things an some vinyl signs, but don’t know what to charge, or how to lay it all out for people to see. If you could help me in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dan”
Hi Dan, you should have the most recent one, but I am constantly trying to improve it for people so these questions actually help me to develop a better source of information.
Now, pricing can be complicated because it depends on what you’re etching, how much time it takes you, and what market your doing it for. If you’re etching it for other businesses or using high priced glass, then it would be priced a lot higher.
My best advice is to look at what other people are pricing it for, but if it takes you
extra time than usual, then add a bit to it. More intricate designs can be priced higher also.
- personalized-engraved-gifts.com/catalog/974– These are priced in the range of around $30 – $40 but the glass might be of higher quality.
If you get into high end items such as home glass, then it might be priced a few thousand dollars for a job. Such as work by these guys:
As for smaller items, I think working with corporate glass gifts has the highest profitability margin. Here’s a guide for pricing glass blanks:
Also your work looks cool. I maybe able to give you some extra help promoting your stuff if you’re interested. Since I am not currently selling my work and am just doing it for a hobby, I would be willing to help your business out through my website for free.
Let me know and I hope the best for your business.
