Custom Fair Badge pricing?
« on: April 12, 2013, 06:35:05 PM »
Hey guys!

I'm making custom name badges for the fair this year, but I'm reeallly struggling on pricing. They would be high quality laminated digital prints on card stock, with your arena and/or real name, and a pony image of your choice. They would be picked up at the fair.

The three options would be:

-A FIM character
-Your OC/pony of your choice, in the custom G1 bases I provide
-Full custom OOAK drawing from scratch

I was thinking $5, $10 and $15 respectively, but I fear that's too high. On the low end I was also considering $5/8/12. What have/would you pay for a badge?

I don't want to show the badges themselves yet, but here's a few examples of my cartoon-esque work since I assume quality of work will affect pricing.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

This sounds about right to me.  The middle one might be a bit high since they are only able to choose from a template.  Maybe $5, 8, 15?

The art I have commissioned in the past was similar pricing and its going to be high quality and laminated so i think it's fair.
I'm not really on here anymore. Email me if you need my for something.

I just wanted to vouch for Rhini's work.  It's super cute.  She made me a badge last year, and I love it! :)

I wouldn't mind getting one of my OC! I don't have many drawings of her and I would love to add another to the collection! Your artwork is gorgeous! :heart:

Thanks! I'm thinking the $5/8/12 is the best option to make it affordable. I also learned I can very cheaply get really nice quality vinyl badge holders!

Sketches all done and digitally inked! All 16 of them  :dizzy: :faint:

But I'm really happy so far! I also got the chance to mock them up a little yesterday, and I have some cool ideas I want to play around with  ^.^ Hoping to start taking orders in the next week or two!

I just want to say I am so in! I want a badge with my arena name and real name both. I am assuming we pre pay. Can you take pay pal?
I encourage you to check out my feedback on eBay and here at the arena.

Awesome Peppie, thank you!  :biggrin: Yep! I'll be taking paypal for all pre-orders, and will have some blanks where you can write in your name available at the fair, although those you will obviously not be able to customize  :)

I'm interested, as I try to buy a new custom badge every year....but I'd like to see what the bases look like before I decide if I want my OC on a base or a custom one.

$5 $8 and $15 sound fine.
