The hats cost $2.70. It was about 5400 stitches. 25 hats total. I have a 1 head machine.

What I charged....$25 set-up fee and $12.95 per hat.

I know there are tons of factors that go into pricing, like location, demand all that good stuff. I'm just wondering if I'm in the right ballpark.

Thanks in advance for any imput.

For us it's a 7.50-8.00 hat in that quantity, but I'm with Jennifer, don't leave any money on the table. Good looking type by the way. :)

I think for you only having a single-head (what I also have ATM) that's a fair price. 1 head running at 600 SPM would put you at around 4.5 - 5 hours, about $50/hour. Now, if you had a 4-head running at 600 SPM it'd take you 2 hours and you'd be at $50/hr offering around $8/hat. It's all relative to your operation. I need to keep telling myself that and just keep grinding to get up to a 4-6 head.

why not just asking

I agree, we have 14 single head machines now, I sold my 6 head Happy machine several years ago for a few reasons but mainly:


If the multi head machine breaks, it stops all production, single heads, if 1 goes down, you can still carry on.


If you have a large order, you can run the same design on several machines / all machines, or just 1 machines, freeing up the other machines for other jobs.


Over all, we just find that it helps us be more productive.
