Default Re: Prices...need to up them, I think??!?!

For the things I make, my rule of thumb is at LEAST 2x my cost to make them for wholesale and then 3-4x cost to make them for retail. For the plain single colored bow of any kind, I use the same formula, then for retail round it up or down to be however many inches the bow is wide, plus $1. So a 3" bow will be $4, 5" bow will be $6. I tweak it for my market, but for me anyway, you won't see a 2" bow for less than $2 for sure. To me the smaller the bow the more difficult it is to make.
