Glad you like the disc. Such a rad show. I really want to dye one of Carl (the kid) too. He is a pretty tough little dude!

I typically charge by color. However if there is a lot of extra work I may charge more for detail work. My typical price is $10 for a single color and $5 for each additional color. I max out at $30 for the dye work. My experience has been that most people will not pay more than $50 for a dyed disc. So $30 for the dye and $20 for a disc seems to be about the limit. If I am shipping the disc the customer pays for shipping as well.

I know I should probably spend some time searching this question, but while we're on the topic of commissioned work, what would you guys need in terms of a custom design? Any image that works as a stencil? (...and what types of elements in the design are impossible, a pain in the neck, or desirable?) In what (electronic?) format? I've got a million questions, but let's start there, THANK YOU!
btw, I love this thread: you all are artists, and deserve more than what you can typically charge.

The important variables matter... handcut v plotter, mac v windows. I find that any image that looks good in 2-4 colors will make a good stencil, and I prefer scalable vector graphic (.svg) format 'cuz inkscape likes it.

Last nights fun!

Thanks for asking that question! I was actually wondering the same thing myself and was wanting to post the same question

Awesome way of breaking it down. That is a good baseline to sell disc. I can't wait until I can achieve some better dye's myself.

Is that SC marbling Dan? Or something else? Been experimenting with some marbling techniques but nothing great so far.

That one makes me want to do some marbling tonight. Too bad I don't have any white discs.
