    Most guys do .50 cents a square inch for regular clear or flat then if candy ,flake or show gloss add 25%

    Always have a minimum price, too. Mine is $50 per order. I'm not dipping one light switch cover for your kid's room for $.50 a square inch.

    Keep records of how long it takes you to run through the process, time wise, watch, and measure the ounces of base, activator, clear etc. establish what you want to make for your time invested. Not everyone works at the same rate, or speed. Use the .50 as a guide, but track what you do and keep good records, and over time you'll know what you need to charge.

    thanks i think over the next 30 to 60 days im going to really watch that stuff closly and decide whats worth my time and whats not sometimes there variables tho if someone has a small project at first but may have alot of work to come has im making this transition into a company im realizing all.the small stuff we seem to over look before we make our choices
