Default Question about cheer bows

I'm just getting started but love the way cheer bows look. I have made a few just playing around but I am wondering about the pricing. I see them so cheap on websites and i'm wondering if I could ever sell any for what they are really worth in time and materials. Any thoughts?

There will always be websites that will undersell your bows. What buyers do not realize is they are cheap in materials and craftsmanship.

I don't believe you will ever get out in profit what you put into the bow in your time and effort. I know there are posts in this forum about pricing of bows, I have even responded myself.

Run a search under "cheer bow price" and I am sure it will come up. HTH! Good Luck!

Amen to that, sister!!
You'll see posts related to that issue as well, the cheap yucky bows you see in cheer catalogs.
Ann is right, check the forum, there's quite a lot of threads related to cheer bow pricing.
It all depends, if it's a local buyer you are hoping to really get, you may price a little below normal, or offer a "percentage off" in the hopes of getting their business. I priced bows at much lower costs than normal for a local Tiny Mite PW team, in the hopes of getting not only her business, but her sister's as well. Sure enough, her sister the head coach of the HS called for her competition bows.
Good Luck, it's an interesting venture...

When responding to this, I though about your post about Omni cheer's bow. OMG, that was the funniest post I think I have ever read. So glad to have found someone like you with that sense of humor! You're the best Shelleigh!
