I have to do 5 dozen cookies with edible images, bagged in cello bags with pink and brown ribbon. Do you charge extra for packaging, and if so how much? Is it a certain amount per cookie, or a flat rate? Thanks in advance!
I don't charge for my cakes/cookies/cupcakes as I just make them for friends and family but if I did I would definitely work that into the price of the cookies. You don't want to cut into your profit.
Every little cost is calculated in my cookies... even the electricity for my oven.. So I know exactly how much it cost me to do cookies, how much time and how much profit I do. So I include the cost of the packaging in my cookies.
Absolutely..If it is a cost to you ...pass on the charge...I charge 50 cents for the bag and 50 cents for the ribbon.
you'll be surprised at how long its going to take to bag 60 cookies and then tie them with ribbon. so yes charge enough to cover the supplies and your time. thats in addition to the cookie charge.
Thanks ladies! I'm thinking .50 per cookie. Hope that sounds fair for both of us. I appreciate your input.
Definitely charge! If you don't charge, you're cutting into your profit! Because you have to buy the bags and the ribbon, and then you have to bag and tie the cookies. I think .50 is very reasonable. (That's .25 for the bag and .25 for the ribbon).
Thanks! I feel better now!
