Skull & Rose Tumbler | Cost Breakdown & Supply List

Skull & Rose Tumbler | Cost Breakdown & Supply List

If you haven’t checked it out yet, I have a tutorial on how I created this tumbler on my YouTube!

Supply List & Cost:
20 oz Standard Tumbler from Griffin Blanks (including the use of BAMF10 for 10% off) is $7.19

Using CCDIY Medium Viscosity & Artist Resin Epoxy & Sanding/Cleaning in between layers

Layer 1: 20 mL Artist Resin
Sand & Clean with 91% Alcohol (2mL @ 2 cents + 2 cotton rounds at 3 cents each) 8 cents
Layer 2: 20 mL Artist Resin
Sand & Clean with 91% Alcohol (2mL @ 2 cents + 2 cotton rounds at 3 cents each) 8 cents
Layer 3: 20 mL Artist Resin
Layer 4: 20 mL Artist Resin
Sand & Clean with 91% Alcohol (2mL @ 2 cents + 2 cotton rounds at 3 cents each) 8 cents
Layer 5 (Final Layer): 20mL Medium Viscosity

100mL Total of CCDIY Artist Resin & Medium Viscosity at 3 cents a mL = $3.00

8mL of 91% alcohol at 1 cent a mL = 8 cents
Cotton rounds total to use with alcohol at 3 cents a piece = 24 cents

Sanding Totals for 3 times = 24 cents

Epoxy Materials for Mixing each layer totals $1.55

Gloves at 24 cents each = $1.20
medicine cups at 3 cents each = 15 cents
Popsicle Sticks at 3 cents each = 15 cents
150 Seconds of Propane at 1 cent per 30 seconds = 5 cents

Glitter Application Total $3.11

Since I did not coat the entire tumbler, I calculated this result off of the basis of Tablespoons actually used. 

For Create By Firefly’s Fine Graphite Glitter which came in the Standalone Mega Box, it costs approximately 62 cents per Tablespoon and I estimated to have used 1.5 Tablespoons totaling out to 93 cents plus a Wax Sheet (at 2 cents a piece) totaling 95 cents for use of that glitter. (Based on the glitter pricing in the standalone box of 4.35 oz of this fine glitter - 3/4 cup at $14.25 regular estimated price and the discounted box price of $7.42)

For Peachy Olive Glitter I used Regina George which is $8.50 for 2 oz by weight. 2oz is approximately 53.699 grams. 1 Tablespoon = 14.3g. I estimated that I used about 1 Tablespoon of this glitter, bringing this glitter price to $2.14 + 2 cents for the wax sheet making it $2.16

Alcohol Ink Design 7 cents
Brea Reese Black & White Alcohol Ink Pack is $8.49 from CCDIY for a total of 60.03 mL. I estimate that I used approximately 1/2 a mL
small brush x 1 = 23 cents

Vinyl Total $4.13
7 x 12 TeckWrap Space Grey Chrome = 84 cents
3x3 of Cricut Transfer tape = 11 cents

Cleaning Your Tumbler totals 22 cents

5 mL at 1 cent/mL of 91% Alcohol = 5 cents
5 mL at 1 cent/mL of Acetone = 5 cents
4 Cotton Rounds at 3 cents a piece = 12 cents

Packaging Your Tumbler totals $2.37

3 pcs of tissue paper at 3 cents a piece = 9 cents
2 pcs of bubble wrap at 13 cents a piece = 26 cents
1 care card from Vista Print at 6 cents a piece
1 thank you Post Card from Vista Print at 11 cents a piece
1 Freebie Vinyl from the Cooke Co at 19 cents a piece (use code BAMF to save $$)
6 Packaging stickers totaling 84 cents from the CookeCo
1 Rollo Shipping Label at 3 cents a piece
1 Packing Slip + Ink totaling 6 cents
1 10x4x4 Box from Amazon at 66 cents each
Approximately 16 inches of tape from Package Mint at .004 cents an inch totaling 7 cents

Your total materials cost comes to: $20.91
My total time spent on this tumbler was approximately 2 hours at $12 an hour comes to labor being: $24

Suggested Retail Price:
[(Material Cost x4) + (Hourly Wage + Time)]/2
[($20.91 x 4) + ($12 x 2)]/2
[$83.64 + $24]/2
$107.64/2
= $53.82

I think $54 is very reasonable for the time and effort spent on this cup. 

Pricing depends on YOU. $54 may be high in your area, but remember, if you are selling online you are not just limited to your physical area, you have the whole WORLD! Just make sure you are charging for your TIME and WORTH! I recommend staying consistent and stern though.
