Tips on Pricing
Artists, use nice price tags on your work to better establish your prices for the public. No visible prices give the customer the impression that your prices are arbitrary and open to negotiation.
Eliminate the question, “how much is this piece?” and concentrate on the serious customer.
How? Use price tags or small signs. You can buy them or make them. What they look like can be as original as your art.
Painters and 2d artists should never adhere a price to the surface of a piece as it reduces the importance of that piece. I prefer all price tags at the lower right corner below a piece.
Jewelers: You can attach price tags to pieces with thin thread or string,
Accessory artists: Creative price tags or unique signs work well.
Final Thought: Be confident in your pricing. If you believe it’s a great price for the piece and the amount of work you put into it, stand tall and stand behind your pricing.
Bonus Tip: Consider having work in different price points so many different types of buyers can collect your work. 10 pieces sold at $100 = one piece at $1,000. Make booth fees with lower price point work.
