Casting prices


#1

This question is a litle off the casting thread but someone in
one of my classes wants me to do a casting for them. I do
castings at home with very good success, but have never done for
someone and do not know what to charge. Some one in my class
said I should charge $7.50. This seems low to me. What do other
casters who are not professionals charge? Thanks in advance for
any advice, Ginger

Ginger, For casting with customers material, and handing them
back the casting, button and all (no labor for you other than
investing and casting). We charge $15.00 per item for people who
pay when they pick it up, $25.00 for those who pay every 30 days.
If they sent it to say Quality Casting in New York it would be
about $7.50 but they would have shipping cost etc… If they say
that to me, “I could send to NY for less”, I say “send it”!

Ginger,

We charge by the can. $20.00 per small flask (about 4 jewelry
pieces), $65.00 for our large perferated flask (about 1 quart in
volume///lots of pieces). This is with the customers waxes and
metal and no guarantee. Our metal, our waxes, guaranteed
castings etc. all cost more.
