I NEED HELP!!! I HAVE AN ORDER OF DECORATE SUGAR COOKIES THAT I NEED TO MAKE FOR A BRIDAL SHOWER. MY COOKIE CUTTERS ARE 3IN- 3 1/3 IN (SIZE). BECAUSE THIS IS MY FIRST ORDER I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH TO CHARGE. PLEASE !!!! CAN SOMEBODY GIVE AN IDEA. I LIVE IN THE CT AREA.
..moving to Cookies forum.
a general guide is $1 an inch, which increases the fancier the decorating gets, and also extra for packaging - which will also depend on how fancy the packaging is.
thank for the info. big help...........
agree with brincess_b, $1 an inch, but if more colors and detail, higher price
how much extra would you guys charge for packaging?
My packaging and ribbon are included in the price (it cost me $.05 for the bag and $.02 for the ribbon). Of course if they wanted a cookie box or something else, I would charge extra but know one has ever asked.
I charge $5.00 each for my 3 -4 inch decorated cookies bagged with a cellophane bag and curly ribbon.
The packaging might only cost $0.07, but it takes time to package them. This is why you charge extra to take the time to do the work. Remember... you aren't just selling the ingredients to make these cookies... you selling the service of doing what the client either can't or doesn't want to do themselves. There's great value in that.
I would start decorated cookies at $1/inch simply decorated (2-3 colors). Individual packaging would be extra. What are your cookies going to look like? Just iced? Monogram? Flowers? How many colors will you be using? How do they want them packaged? All of these will affect the final price.
