As far as pricing goes, I charge a flat rate of $3.00 labor when working with plain grosgrain and $5.00 when working with sequin or spandex materials. Then I usually charge $1.00 per color of grosgrain used and $2.00 for each sequins color. Lastly, I charge an additional $1.00 for any heat n bond, pony-o and ribbon middle. Does that make any sense?
So, for example, if you were figuring out what to change for your bow on the lower left, you would charge
$5 labor (since working with sequins)
$2 for 2 grosgrain colors
$2 for 1 sequin color (or do you charge for 3 grosgrain since the sequins are bonded to one?)
$1 for the pony o/heat n bond/center
So that bow would be roughly $10.
Not trying to copy, just trying to get ideas on how to price. Thank you SO much!
