Charging for Card Buffets or Stamp-a-Stacks

Carolyn Jackson
Do you always charge if you host a card buffet (multiple projects, attendees make as many as they wish, door prizes)

What do you charge?

If an attendee places an order or books a workshop with a firm date, do you charge that person?

Thanks for your help.

You need to cover your costs. So work out how much each card costs you exactly then work approx with the rule of 3 Example if a card costs $1 in supplies, you will charge $3 for that card ($1 for supplies; $1 for your time, cutting & creative process and $1 for profit)
If they book a workshop with a firm date, still charge them but give them an equivalent coupon they can 'spend' at their workshop.
If you market it as free with a minimum order, ensure you state how many cards they can make otherwise someone may come in and make 20 cards and you may not cover costs.
Everyone is different and my examples are just that. You need to do the maths and work out what's best for you and your business. Most of all have fun. Best of luck
