I’m trying to get some quick little things busted out to get a stock for my first Artist Market coming in about a month. So I finished these with some scraps from around the shop and engraved a few designs catering to the audience I’m trying to sell too… (my wife’s people… hippy yoga types…)

Thanks for looking.

Randy I have a laser engraver at school with software that can do text, images, and just recently started doing pictures.

That’s awesome to hear about the Texas style box, that was a stunning piece. I’m running into the problem now of pricing… I have no idea what to charge for these. especially being that they were scraps and technically I was already getting paid (from school) for the time I spent making them. any suggestions?

People don’t care really how it was made they go solely on appearance, practicality and uniqueness. The size of the box also comes into play when pricing, I’m guessing that these two are just a bit bigger then recipe boxes?

Depending on the venue will also depend on what people are going to spend, I no longer do the typical monthly events as people are mostly looking for $10.00 to $30.00 items and find it a waste of my time plus monies spent in gas and booth rental.
