For those that offer cake stands and cupcake displays etc. What do you charge for the rental fees?

I'm considering purchasing some stands/displays but before I venture to do that I have no idea what would be reasonable for a rental fee.

Thanks for the advice and opinions in advance!!

We charge 100% of the replacement cost as a refundable deposit and 1/3 of the price as the rental fee.

I have read many threads on this, and Jason has posted the most often quoted price. Some good as high as 50% of costs, and some go 100% of costs on really unique items or stands--- but that seems crazy to me.
