How do you determine your prices?
I am a professional in my field with years of both personal and studio experience. Prices are determined by many factors, including but not limited to:
Products available in my shop are typically cheaper than commissioned pieces for a number of reasons, the predominant reason being that I won't reproduce the commissioned piece to sell on my shop. A one-off item has significantly higher material costs. For example, a $30 mold that produces one unit versus casting 30 units has a higher material cost per unit.
Please note that I do not retain any of the shipping costs. Shipping costs go directly towards packaging and shipping.
Complexity: most of my products are modular designs with multiple components
Material costs: all materials used in the production process are industrial grade
Production time: my time and labor is valuable
Quality: my skill level allows for a professional finish you won't find elsewhere
