Hi, I just received a potential order for 250 wedding cookies, the event organizer asked for samples to show the bride for approval. It's the first time someone asks for samples. I don't mind making some samples, but I don't want to do them for free. How can I explain to the even organizer that they won't be for free?? I'm too shy to say it directly. icon_redface.gif

Thank You.

To me it is worth the cost to put out samples but....
keep it to a minimum - like 6.

Otherwise you are going to have to 'say it directly' - "I charge $XX per dozen. I will be glad to deduct that amount from their total if they finalize the order."

I had a bride who wanted a sample cut-out-iced cookie. I made 1 for the sampling.

I would offer samples if they are asking. That is a good size order especially if you charge per cookie. I always offer samples for brides when I am doing bridal showers.
