Default Help w/ finding a reasonable price!

So, I am finally making plans for my etsy shop of the future
I'm thinking i'm going to stick with just bottle cap images in one shop and
later opening another shop for everything else. But, I can't decide what a reasonable price for the bottle cap image sheets would be. I looked on Etsy to see what other people were selling them for, but most of the images on Etsy are lower quality than what I am planning to sell so I can't really measure my prices up against them. Then, there is the group of designers that have a decent skill level, they have high prices but they have sooo many sales that I don't feel like I could use those prices to get my shop started. So basically i'm stuck deciding what to price them at

I've been on Etsy for hours (literally) trying to decide a reasonable price.
It doesn't help when the prices range from about 75 cents to $3.50 a sheet though.

I buy all my images from an Etsy seller and most of her prices are between 1.75 to 3.00 depending on what it is. She always has a promotion "Buy 3, get one free for ex.". Most image sellers offer free images when you buy certain amount of listings.

I would say around $2.00 is a good starting point. Offering a freebie or bulk purchases (one listing saying "pick any 5") is a good promotional tool.

As you prepare it would be a good idea to assign Item numbers to each sheet and include the item in the preview image so customers can say "I want item 4562 puppies as my freebie"

Enlivendesighns. Loved the mental image of trying to ship a box with 4562 puppies in it, just for being sent as the promotion for a 10etsy purchase.

Know that's not what you meant, at all, but couldn't help mind mind painting a quick picture.
