How much would you pay for.......

I was wondering what yall would pay for custom saddle covers? Like the fleece ones. You pick the color and ribbon or embroidery you want. (Of course it would depend how much stuff you want done such as embroidery.) I was thinking of making them and was wondering how much you would pay! Just post it please! They are made out of nice fleece and different types of ribbons, and I would have to take them somewhere for the embroidery1

Also..... I was think of making ribbon brow bands and saddle pads, matching of course! So you can match at shows or in the cross country field! Let me know what you think!

Remember it can't be too cheap! I have to cover my expenses and make a profit!

If it was quality, done by someone who knows what they're doing, I'd probaby pay 25. If it was by a company I knew, more for custom, but I'm always leery of do it yourself projects, some stuff is great, some stuff isn't. But if you're thinking about doing this and have a nice website and showcase you're product, probaby 25, maybe 30 (I love matching things, haha).

I have seen ribboned browbands from about $15 to $70 depending on the patterns and rosettes on the ends. Some patterns take more ribbon to make. Some rosettes can have diamontes in them or buttons, or just more ribbon.

As for saddle pads, I guess it depends on how you are making them, like the filling you are using and the material on the outer?

A good way to get a price is figure out how much the supplies cost to make it then how long it took you to make it. Then give yourself an hourly rate like $20 an hour and lets say you spent $10 on supplies and it took an hour to make, then charge $30 for the saddle pad.

Have you made any yet to show us as examples?
