Ten things you shouldn’t say when pricing handmade items

I’ve been giving advice this week on pricing handmade items for selling. Not on purpose, just because it’s cropped up a couple of times. Working in a shop where people sell handmade items means it’s something which is bound to come up.

When I started selling handmade items, advice was thin on the ground. I tried reading some things online, but never really had someone to talk to in person. I also didn’t realise that my lack of knowledge was holding back my business, because people were bitching about me not being able to price properly behind my back, instead of just telling me what I was doing wrong, and I was missing opportunities.

This is why when I now see people underpricing their work, I tell them, and hopefully not in a patronising way, but because underpricing is undervaluing your own skill. To me, it’s not a big deal to say to someone their items are too cheap, and to help them work out the real price. It shouldn’t be a mystery, or a closely guarded secret! There are some things I’ve learned that I won’t share, due to the amount of time it took to research or learn, but pricing correctly isn’t one. Everyone pricing correctly helps EVERYONE, not just you – it helps the shops you sell in, other crafters and yourself. There can be bitchiness and backstabbing in the handmade community – undercutting your colleagues doesn’t go unnoticed, and people talk.

There are certain things which crop up every time I advise people on their prices – so to help you all out, here are the things I most often have to say to people.

1. I don’t think people will pay that

Number one on the list, and for good reason. You should never second guess your customer – you’re already making a leap guessing what they might want to buy in the first place, don’t try to guess their budget as well.

You should always work out how much you should charge, and then charge it. If no one buys it, try another outlet. Only after a few months, and/or a few different selling opportunities can you rightfully say, ‘this isn’t going to sell at this price, I need to put it on sale’.

2. I worked out how much I should charge and it was a ridiculous price, so I made it lower

Firstly, well done for working out the price! That’s one hurdle over.  However, charging a lower price means working out how much to charge was a waste of your time. I’m not trying to mean, I’m trying to make you value your time.

3.  I made it ages ago so I just want it out of the house

This came up yesterday – someone I know brought something into a shop near mine, and had marked it at far too low a price. I asked her why, and she said, ‘oh I made it ages ago’. My answer was, and always will be that that doesn’t matter.

If you’re taking something to a new stockist, their customer base don’t know you made it ages ago, or are sick of the sight of it. It might be the first thing they’ve ever seen of yours, they’ll fall in love with it… but then they have a fixed vision of what your prices are, and you’ve shot yourself in the foot. You can’t then explain to them that you made it ages ago, and your newer items are more expensive – to them, it was NEW and that’s how your items are priced.

I can sympathise with this in one instance – if you don’t have much storage space, you might be tempted to reduce your items to clearance prices too soon just because you’re running out of space. If this is happening to you, then try offering your items at lower than wholesale prices to your regular successful ‘sale or return’ stockists – they might jump at the chance to have your items in their shop at a higher mark-up.

4. My friend says this is the price they would pay

Asking friends how much they’d pay is a good idea – as long as you also work it out properly. Also, if you ask ten friends how much they’d pay, don’t just go for the lowest price. It’s a good idea to go somewhere in the middle as long as this is still the price you should be charging (or thereabouts). For example,  if you work out you should be charging £10, and your friends suggest prices ranging from £5 to £15, then the middle price of £10 is perfect – however, if your friends suggest £5-£10, then go for £10, don’t go down to £7.50.

5. I feel like I’m ripping people off if I charge more

A contentious issue, but think about it – if you get a tradesman fixing something in your house, you pay him, because that’s what he charges, and that’s what he’s worth. He doesn’t think, ‘hmm am I worth that though? She might be expecting to pay less.’ He gives you the quote, and you say yes or no.

This is exactly what you are doing by putting a price on your item.

You are saying ‘this is how much this costs’, and then the customer can say yes or no. You don’t have to justify it in any way – he isn’t telling you how much it costs him to keep his tools serviced and his certificates in order, so why do you start telling people why your item is cost as it is? Sure, tell people it’s a one-off, there’s only 5 ever made, or whatever makes that item SPECIAL, but you don’t have to tell them how much it costs you to hire a table at the craft fair you’re selling at to justify the price (I’ve actually overheard this happening).

6. It didn’t take me that long to make

Good for you – that’s probably because you’ve practised a lot, and been doing it a long time. Did you get paid for all that practice? No? Well now is when you DO. If I was to make a dress it would take me at least a couple of days, because I’m shit at sewing – I’m happy to pay someone £20 an hour to do it for me, cause I know it won’t take them much longer than two hours, and they know what they’re doing.

*edit to add*

I know most dresses take longer than two hours to make and dressmakers should be paid more than £20 an hour. I have a friend who makes clothes for me, and it takes her a couple of hours and I give her £20 an hour. I never expected this post to be spread so far and wide, and I really was talking about a particular situation I am in, not all dressmakers!If you re-read my sentence, I am talking about someone I personally pay £20 an hour, and it only takes her a couple of hours. I am not intending to undervalue dressmakers!

7. I just enjoy making it, I don’t care how much I get for it

That’s excellent, you have a hobby which people want to buy from you. However, if there are people who make a living doing what you do as a hobby, please charge the same as they do. I know that sounds mean, I really know it does, and I can’t think of a good metaphor.

Let’s say, for argument’s sake, that you have a friend who is a hairdresser, and you’ve decided to take up as a hobby cutting hair. You keep your regular job, but on the side you cut hair, and you charge less than your hairdresser friend. It doesn’t matter because it’s your hobby, you enjoy it, and anything you get is good enough – but your friend who does it for a living is being put out of work by your hobby because she has to charge less as the value of hairdressing becomes diluted by people doing it at home. She has paid for training to do what she does, and years of practice to be as good as she is, but people will still question why she charges what she does when you are charging less. She also hasn’t got another income to supplement her hairdressing, this is her whole career.

This may sound extreme, and as I say, I couldn’t think of a decent metaphor. However, I will use scrabble tile necklaces as an example, as I don’t make them any more, and this never happened. I use to charge £10, as I’d worked out this was the price they needed to be – if someone then came along, who made them as a hobby, and sold them for £6, it would impact on my sales. The price would still cover their costs (I would be wholesaling them at £5 after all, so I have to know my costs are covered at that price) so they think they’re being fair, but as mine are £10, people wonder why I seem to be ripping them off.

Which brings us to…

8. *person A* sells it for £x

You shouldn’t use someone else’s price as comparison, unless you’re selling like for like at the same price. You should never think ‘I’m not as good as person A so I need to sell it for less’. If it is the same thing, you must sell it at the same price.I learnt this the hard way – I made an item at the start of my selling life, and sold them for £2, because I thought this was the right price. I found out someone else was selling the same thing for £5, and instead of thinking I should put the price up, I thought, ‘but I’m not as good as them, I should keep the price where it is’. The person who made this same item found out, and thought I was undercutting them on purpose, when I was actually thinking they were better than me. I was undervaluing myself, but hurting someone who I respected in the process.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but I feel I should – You should never sell it at £2 on purpose because person A sells it at £5 and you want to steal their customers.

9. It’s OK for you, people will pay more for one of your items

I find it hard to believe that anyone thinks I can charge more simply because I made it, but I have had someone say this to me. All I can say is this – a name can carry weight when pricing something, otherwise designer clothes wouldn’t exist, but there aren’t many crafters who can charge more just because they’ve made it. BELIEVE ME.

10. The materials were just hanging around

Therefore the material cost is nothing, and making your price far too low? WRONG! The material cost is not how much the material cost you this time – it’s how much it will cost you to replace it.

So if you make, for example, a cushion from a piece of fabric someone gave you, it doesn’t mean you don’t add in the cost of the fabric – it means you add in the cost of replacing that fabric. This is hard to get your head round, but I have learnt this from pricing making stock out of donated and recycled items. For example, I might get given a lot of books by someone for nothing to make vases out of, but I always factor in the cost of having to buy a book – usually it’s just as if I bought a cheap one from a charity shop for a quid – but you can see the parallel I hope. Just because that fabric was hanging around, you can’t charge £5 less for a cushion, or next time your customer will wonder why this cushion is £5 more expensive than the last one.

So what do you all think? I know how difficult it is to value yourself, and how much easier it is to see someone else’s stock and see that they’re undervaluing themselves, so maybe if we all watch out for each other, and make each other feel good we can create an even nicer handmade/crafting family.

Thank you for reading this far. I am so happy that something I wrote last year has become useful. I now blog on my main website
so you can find even more stuff over there.

I feel I have to answer criticism that I have not made thousands of sales and therefore I shouldn’t be regarding myself as an expert.

Not once have I ever said I’m an expert. On anything. This is my experiences from owning a shop, working in other shops, and running a website selling items. My Folksy and Etsy sales might together number less than 300 (thanks for adding it up for me), but neither of those sites are my main sources of income. I have sold in shops for 5 years, on my own website for 4 years, and had my own shop selling other people’s items for 3 years. If I thought I knew everything, I would be an incredibly dull person.

This guide is meant as a way to make crafters value themselves, not to tell you how to price. There are loads of pricing guides out there, written by people more ‘successful’ than me. I highly recommend you read one of those. My whole life is about making people value their time, not telling them that I am the pinnacle of success and you should do what I do. I hope that helps some of you who have been annoyed with me.

Further edit – I’m very flattered to be asked if you can reproduce this blog. If you’d like to print this out for your craft group, that is absolutely fine. If you want to quote me anywhere else, I’d appreciate being quoted and referenced, rather than you changing the words slightly and then not referencing me. Thanks!

    Mostly well thought out and good advice, except for one thing: you should never worry about what your competition is selling their item for, or increase your price just for them. That’s bunk. Your business is not about them, it is about you. Don’t deliberately undercut them (at least not by much, because competition is part of the sales world whether indies like it or not) but try to find a fair price and adjust as necessary for your shop. Find a good pricing model for YOU. Good customer service and sales are part of your business, and if you are being undercut, you’ll find a way to sell even when it’s hard. A business is much more than the product. That said, do listen to feedback from those you respect. If they are genuinely trying to help you, consider it. If they’re just worried about their own business, that is their problem. Don’t make an enemy but don’t let them tell you to change something that works for you. I hate competition, but a poorly run business will not thrive for long and being threatened by someone else isn’t productive.

    Yes!!! Thank you!!
    I have said this till I’m blue in the face! All I hear is, “well, no one will pay that much”.
    Well, no, not if you don’t charge it. The example I give is: not everyone *can* afford handcrafted. Just like everyone can afford a BMW. You don’t expect BMW to drop their prices just so you can have one, why do you drop your prices? They buy it or they don’t!
    Makes no sense!

    • Kathy Howard 11/02/2015 at 7:05 pm #

      Well said! I often hear from family members that I price too high. They would never pay that much and many cases neither would I, but that is not the point. I have even sometimes marked non-selling items up incase I have undervalued it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. When making handmade the idea is to make something that has value to someone.

  3. opusanglicanum 11/02/2015 at 8:19 am #

    I’ve always thought that correct pricing is noT just about self respect, it’s about respect for other craftspeople as well, because no one thrives in a market where goods are underpriced. Having grown up in a household where the main income was from a craft business I’ve always been aware of the problems

  4. knitternicky 11/02/2015 at 8:32 am #

    Thank you for your advice. I was recently asked to make something for someone and have no idea what to charge. It was arranged through a third party so I have already delivered it. They love the item and want me to make something else now too. I have to meet with them to discuss it tomorrow and I still haven’t said how much to pay me for the first item.
    This is why I rarely make items when people ask me to. I find gifting them or trading skills less embarrassing so I can avoid the money issue. I happily made my hairdressers son a hat in return for a free haircut for example.
    Looks like I have a little thinking to do for tomorrow.

    Guilty as charged! Great article and excellent advice to take on board, especially as I’ve just taken the leap to quit the day job and concentrate on painting and making. Sometimes it’s necessary to get a metaphorical boot up the bum and to be told your work is worth more.

    • Linda Hughes 11/02/2015 at 6:39 pm #

      Guilty here also, but I don’t look at it as undercutting someone else who makes the same, as no one makes the same as me, we all are different. I charge what is probably considered less then someone else selling purses but if I charged what it cost me to make the designs, I don’t think people would pay more.

      • Wraithlady 12/02/2015 at 12:18 pm #

        Yes, but customers don’t think ‘ oh, it’s a different bag to everyone else’s’ they think ‘it’s a bag’ and either ‘it’s cheaper, it’s a bargain’ or ‘it’s cheap, it’s obviously inferior’. And if you’re not charging what it costs you make, why are you doing it? You’re not making any money on it, you’re undercutting other makers – a lose/lose situation, surely? Please, read the article again and take it to heart.

  12. Patricia 11/02/2015 at 11:23 am #

    This should be essential reading for anyone starting out either in craft business, or simply selling at charity fairs. I have been guilty of every one of the ten – and more. I once did a price check on items I made – I earned ninepence an hour! I excused this by saying that the smiling faces of my customers was enough for me (read “liddle ol’ me” and you get a truer perspective) Sooo hard to stand behind your products and be dispationate. Said of me that I can make anything but money.

    Im sorry but a dress doesnt take two hours to make, but more like a few days

    • peskychloe 12/02/2015 at 11:18 am #

      I’ve added this into the article, but I’ll reply here too

      I know most dresses take longer than two hours to make and dressmakers should be paid more than £20 an hour.

    Wow! I never looked at it that way before. I have people look wide eyed at me at markets and my first thought is ‘oh no! They think it’s too much!’ But in fact they turn to me and say ‘you don’t charge enough’. I now know it to be true. This has given me the confidence to get what I am worth. Thank you for your article, I feel as though it was written just for me.

    I wanted to say I Love your Back Ground wit the pain splashes! I had to actually resist the urge to just post that before reading. Thank You for posting this as I tend to have a habit of charging less. (or just what it cost me to make. My aunt came across earring someone made out of fabric & she said guess what I paid for them, I figured they were scraps from someone’s project & so I figured (I think I said $10) I was only $5 off.. it was $15. I also found some of the stuff to make it as I love scraps… (frankly it’s all I use I made a patchwork body pillow case, that well being it’s already big enough I think I’ll just keep adding to it & make it as big a (Utility) blanket as possible!

    I found it very help full. I have just started a craft business and with some of my stuff I’ve priced ok but other stuff I have realized that I have priced to low so when I put my new stock of that particular item up I will mention the new price.

  29. Jerry Ingram / Ren Dog Designs 12/02/2015 at 4:11 pm #

    This is something I have been struggling with from the 1st item I made and sold. You gave good advice in your article, I always chuckle when some want to pick out talking points and miss the whole point. I happen to work with silver and stones, I’m no expert and spend a lot of time getting items made to my standards. So I do not feel I can charge top dollar for my time, but as I perfect my work, I increase my labor cost. Sort of like an craftsman versus a Master Craftsman. The rest is easy because I keep track of material cost and mark up from there. I must say until I read your article I was worried I was charging to much or customers would not want to pay that much. Thanks again

    I am so heartened by this article. It also applies HUGELY to professional musicians (see No. 7) who are constantly undercut by amateurs (who may be very good musicians but are amateurs in that they have other paid day jobs).

    • Erin 19/02/2015 at 7:27 pm #

      There are a lot of great points in this article, but I don’t actually think #7 is very valid.

      I understand the idea behind it, but I think that it prioritizes the interest of one party over the interests of multiple other parties.

      For example, what about the societal benefit of having greater access to affordable goods and services? In the hairdresser example, presumably the person who does it as a hobby has less skill than the person who does it as a hobby and doesn’t have all that training. Quality versus cost is a tradeoff that many people are willing to make, but it should be their choice. Moreover, if the person with all that training is not objectively more skilled, perhaps that isn’t a cost that should be passed on to the consumer (since the training doesn’t seem to have impacted the quality of the product).

      In addition, what about the interests of the hobbyist who is willing to sell for less? If it is truly something they do for fun or relaxation, then maybe getting replacement cost allows them to keep doing the hobby whereas they might have fewer sales and not be able to recoup costs if they charge more, thus they may not be able to continue doing the hobby.

      As I said, I understand the impact this can have on the interests of the professional crafter, but if people are willing to provide the same goods/services at a lower cost (and able to produce enough to meet demand) then maybe it simply isn’t a viable product to make a profession out of selling. It sucks for the person who wants to make a living out of selling that thing, but I don’t see why our interests should trump the interests of the public or the hobbyist.

I’m just about to redo my website and sort out my pricing and found this really useful and was very grateful that you took the time to write this and use some of your hard earned knowledge to help strangers. I don’t care how many sales you’ve made I thought your advice made sense and was great really surprised people would take the time to be nasty about something good

    Congratulations on selling hundreds of items! That certainly is enough success for you to have legitimate experience in working the kinks out. You are at the perfect point to write these articles – the problem was recent enough that you still remember it accurately yet you’ve had time to find the solution. Keep it up. Congrats on your success

    What do you think about accounting for what sort of marketing I have available at this stage?

    Starting from where I am, I don’t have any swanky shops or fancy website, just a wordpress site which I’m slowly making look more professional. My marketing plan so far is just using local facebook groups, which sell really amazingly quickly, but pricing is very competitive/ low.

    E.g. I saw a secondhand but beautiful green wool upholstered mid-century Danish design armchair sell for £30 on our local fb group this morning. So I am very deliberately trying to make conspicuously different things which hopefully won’t trigger that comparison in people’s minds.

    I have thought about when I have more pieces and good photographs, I could go round with a portfolio around some of the shops in the posh half of town and ask how much of a margin they’d require, but that’s quite a way down the road for me I think.

    I’m also right at the beginning of going pro, so I feel like I haven’t established any credibility yet so I should price low to wow people and tell their friends and then work up gradually.

    Any advice for me?! 😉

    I am so glad that you blogged about this! it is so helpful to those of us who do not readily value ourselves or what we make. Contemplating a pricing examination in my shop on Etsy.

    Great advice! I’m glad to hear that someone has put what I’ve been saying into words. I t really upsets me when I see afghans going for 20.00 or 50.00 when the yarn is three times that price! I’m sharing this on my fb page and hoping everyone will stop and read it.

    Grammar is important, but take this blog in the spirit it is meant. Help for crafters not English students!

    Thank you for what you shared. I’m married to someone who undervalues their time or does not realize one person’s junk is another person’s treasure, and they’ll pay accordingly.
