I am so excited!!!!

I was asked if i could do 200 of my hard candy suckers (with chocolate monogram) for a wedding!

Normally (at the famrers market) I charge $0.75 each or 2 for 1

So do you think i should just charge 75 each, or still the 2 for a dollar?

I normally do not put chocolate on them, so i figured for the extra work, the 75 would be far (thats $150 in total.

What do you guys think???

Without knowing the size or seeing a picture its hard to say. I would stick with your usual price. You'll have to box them up which is a cost you wouldnt have at the farmers market I assume and as you said the choclate is extra as well.

How are you planning on wrapping them? Will they have any extra ribbon on them? If you do something extra other than the chocolate monogram I would charge about a $1 each. icon_smile.gif

If you look on the internet, anything personalized is always more expensive. I would go with charging a little more. Don't cheat yourself. If this is for their wedding and they want them, they will pay for them.

Thanks! I still have to work out details with her, But yes I am now thinking $1 heat sealed in cello bags, with ribbon to match her colours.

They areabout 2 x2 inches in a heart shape
