Making text and calligraphy for a low price

crazycam99crazycam99 Paris, FrancePosts: 519Member
Hello there,

I started to make calligraphy 1 year ago and decided to earn money with it.
Here are some examples of some work I did:

All the letters are done one by one on paper

Here is an example of the process for another work of mine:

Price I charge for this type of work is 5$-15$ USD per letter depending on the length of the logo and the details.

If you are interested contact me at [email protected]

Cheers.

    I think you might struggle to attract business with your pricing model, you might be better off charging per logo rather than per letter.

    For $10 (averaged) per letter you might find that people using the name "Sovereign Force, Mobile Games Development" ($360) are going to be less keen to use your services than "Ice Apps" ($70). ;)

    @Socks yes I think you are right.

    Preeeeetty sure he suggested charging by the logo, not by the word. ;)

    Because I don't see anyone intrested I descided to, for the first 5 people that ask, do it for ONLY 10$ for up to 10 letters. 1$ per letter!!! Not bad?

    But because I am still here to earn money to finance my game, if you pay 10$ you can get up to 10 letters, 20$ you can get up to 20 letters, 30$ you can get up to 30 letters and so on.

    example: you want letters, you'll pay for 10, if you want 17 letters you'll pay for 20 and if you want 20 letters you'll pay for 20.

    You went from charging $45-$135 ($5-$15 per letter) for "Lost Light" to now charging $10 for the same logo. I think you're complicating things too much. Why not just charge $50 for each logo and if someone requests something ridiculous like the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner, give them a custom quote that reflects how much work you'll be putting into the product?
