What do you charge per cookie? Medium sized cookies with two or three colours. Example: princess crowns or palm trees. Thanks!

hopefully you will get a better response, I'm no expert, but...

most people seem to charge $1/inch (i.e. a 3" round is $3, or a 4x2" is $3, etc)
-- that's what I charge. (I have quietly discounted for simple 2-color cookies)

a good question is, is that $1/inch of cookie cutter, or for after-baking.
I do it based on the uncooked cookie. but I have no idea what others do.

also, a good place for reference is Cookies By Design.com

Just like Jenn said, I have heard a lot of people do $1/sq inch. If it's a detailed two color cookie, you should probably charge more though!

So much will depend on your area and what the market will bear. Certainly you need to factor in the size of the cookie and the complexity of the design. Also, don't forget to include packaging costs.

I'm the same, roughly $1/inch, plus a little extra (usually .25) for a cello bag & ribbon.
