    E4-1 and comission questions

    i got that peice done, roughly 1800 rings, i charged him 100$ i think it was a bit on the low side, but he wants me to do more so thats good this time he wants a rectangle thats 20 inches x 8 inches, so i did 50$ for materials then im thinking 100-150$ in labour

    E4-1 and comission questions

    wow marky thats impressive, but the client doesnt want any thing that elaborate... yet the clients bike is a 94 roadking single seat. all he wants is a triangle that is 21" long by 4-6" at the point in E6-1 that will hang from the back of the seat so i think it should be good for a first project

    E4-1 and comission questions

    So I just received an email asking for me to make some chainmail that will go around the seat of a motorcycle sounds kinda cool to me (i should know more details by tmro) But this got me over thinking about how much do i quote him, if i quote too high i might not get it, if i quote too low it may not be worth it. for my bracelets i do materials x2 +time =amount, but this would be the first commission piece ive done and im not sure how to price it Which brings me to my next question of how many rings per inch for just standard E4-1 in 16g 5/16? Thanks, Strhunter2 PS hopefully this makes sense i have been up for 36hrs straight at the time of writing this

    Making stock questions

    1b. what lengths do you make? 2. right now im just selling on facebook not a shows, the only thing im worried about is i only have 500 rings in each color, and if i make 1 in every color for every style i offer i may not have enough XD 3. still nothing lastnight i completed a bunch of hp3-1 and i think they look good (i know i need a light tent)

    Making stock questions

    soo just a couple more questions that have crossed my mind 1. when your making bracelets to sell do you get them to a certan size than finish them or do you leave them unfinished so its easier to size to the customer? 2. when you are making them for a picture just to show off the pattern and the colors you have, do you make full bracelets or just sections of them to save on rings? 3. idk im sure ill come up with a 3rd question in time Hopefully this makes sense to read Thanks, Strhunter

    is saw cut worth it?

    so ive been making mail for a while but recently ive been thinking about trying to sell at craftshows but first im would like to know from some people with experiance, do you think the extra cost and time for saw cut rings is worth it or should i just stick with machine cut? right now for a standard ( hp3-1,hp4-1, byz, square ect) machine cut bracelet with EDPM rings i can get 15$ each Thanks, Strhunter2
