$20 for a pen??? Remember you are now entering the world of manufacturing a product not giving gifts. #1 – what was the price of the pen kit + shipping #2 – how long does it take to make a pen #3 – What did the expendables cost – sandpaoer, finish materials etc. #4 – Now what is your time worth (And DON’T say minimum wage, you are a skilled craftsman) #5 – Now honestly think about your shoptime overhead

$20 for a pen? These aren’t gifts any more, DON’T GIVE THEM AWAY to people you don’t know SELL THEM FOR A PROPER PRICE!

It sounds like you could have a pretty good stock of items already, quite a bit of $$$$ tied up. $25 is a cheap price figuring if you sell 1 pen it didn’t cost you anything but fuel and your time meeting new people.

Oh well just my opinion.
