Custom Merchandise 101: How Much Should I Charge?

Knowing how to price your goods is important. A good pricing strategy is the difference between barely breaking even and making a profit. There are so many variables to keep in mind when setting the prices for your buttons, stickers, pins, or other products. Here are a few tips to consider when pricing your custom merch for retail.
Calculator

Calculate Costs & Profits
Find the total cost of your goods, making sure to factor in material, production, and labor costs. Now decide on your profit margin. A standard profit margin is 50%, meaning you double your costs to determine the price.

Price Comparison

Examine Market Trends
Check out other businesses with similar products to see what they’re charging. Make sure the prices you set are within 10%, plus or minus, of what your competitors are charging.

Price Points

Create Different Price Points
When setting the prices for your branded merchandise, make sure you have items at multiple different price points. That way your products will fit into everyone’s budget!

Donation Buttons

Skip the Change
You don’t want to carry around rolls of quarters because your buttons are marked at $.50! Round up your items to a full dollar amount so you won’t need to dish out a bunch of change when sold.
