Thanks for your opinion. Yes, I can make ten of those in an hour. I timed the amount of time it takes to roll the ribbon (I use a drill to roll them) and assemble to korker bow. No, I do not count the baking time because during that time, I am making other bows

---Thank you for your advice.

I sell my 5 inch korkers for 7.50 hth

If you do them assembly line style, you can make them fairly cheaply...

for example,

*if you bake 100 korker rods for 30 minutes, and each rod has 5 cuts, and each korker has 30 pieces...that's enough for 16 bows, so that only averages about 2 minutes of cooking time per bow. KWIM?

Cutting/sealing 30 pieces with a woodburner takes maybe 5 minutes, and then another few minutes to sew them together and another 20 seconds to glue it to the clip...

If you only bake enough ribbon for one bow, then sure, it's gonna take way longer then 10 minutes, but who does that?

Thanks for the example...I couldn't imagine only baking enough for one. I mean the electric bill would be CRAZY then I would be charging $20 a korker because of that bill! lol nope not me!

Wow! I'm in Texas and I would say $5-6. I don't think anyone would pay much more than that but I could be wrong!

I'm one of those weird bow makers that doesn't mind korkers at all! I'll sit and watch tv with the fam and roll my ribbon and bake it in a big batch. sometimes I'll even sit with a big bag of it and cut it into strips! I was using fray check for the ends but bought a wood burner for Christmas and I love it. So the next time I'll be sealing the ends with that, so I guess assembling them while I watch tv is out now- lol!

That's about what you could get out of them here in Oregon too. I find that most bows sell for less here than what I see on the board. I wish I could sell them for those amounts though!

I say 5.00, I prefer the fuller ones, the long flat ones just don't look as expensive
