    I have been making name plates as of late by request attached are some of them both finished and unfinished. My question is what would you charge for these? I assume it would be a per letter price as names vary in length.

    I cut them out and my wife asked the parents about the childs interests and adores them acordingly. Emily has an animal theme, Johnny willl have a sports theme and Kassie a princess theme when finished, etc.

    All comments considered and welcome.

      Mine are more plain than that and I begin at $3.00 per letter and go up from there. Those would be closer to$4.00-$5.00 per letter.

          That is some very nice cutting. To me text is one of the least forgiving, all the defects just pop in text. Some of yours seem quite large, I would assume that they ar cut in multiple pieces.
          The decorating on them is beautiful, your wife is very talented.

            The high of the letter is approx. 10" tall ( I try to keep it so it will fit on an 11 x17 paper).

            No they are all one piece not multiple pieces. I cut the whole name from one piece of finished plywood....

            Thanks for the pricing suggestions. All comments still welcome.

              Nice cuts! I charge $30.00 for name plates with a shellac finish regardless of name length with or without a base. If I airbrush color an additional $10.00 and I never have problems selling work. However, I live in California. Hope this helps!

                Thanks polemos21. These don't have stands as they are wall hangers. 10" tall and the longest one is 3' long. But the pricing is helpful thanks.

                  I admit it... I splurged on a new "toy"

                  So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                  I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!

                  Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                  Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
