$6 is a giveaway. Are you covering your costs okay? If I was buying in GBP I'd pay at least £10 a set plus P&P.
Creamscile ones will certainly be unique for each mould.
I had originally asked what everyone thought about pricing....I suggested 5.99 as a starting point of conversation. This initial price suggestions comes from my perspective that Atari Jaguar fans not only get a fair share of ridicule from the mainstream gaming scene, but these collectors who support the Atari Jaguar consistently get shafted on prices of "collectable" items for their collection. Im not talking about the home-brew scene, Im talking about eBay and such... the prices are ridiculous..so much so that I cannot afford or will not pay the prices for some items I really, really want.
So enter me with these buttons...I have a choice to make.....give them away? sorry guys cant do that.....charge a silly "Collectors" price and gouge an already gouged fan based? Nope, I wont ever do that. Or offer my goods for a fair price so everyone can enjoy....that sounds right to me. Buttons are pretty cheap to make, but its the set up, mould making, and time investment is where the work and money comes in. One bad mold means a new mold must be made, which cost money / time / etc.....So my Core goal is for the buttons to be affordable enough that Jag Collectors will want multiple sets so they can change the colors, mix different sets together, a basic and affordable form of self exp
ression on the controller. I think $ 6.00 is a great price for anyone to get involved and be able to express themselves through color and style of buttons...its a small thing but we are a small / niche audience. I see no reason to kick the jag fan base while it is surviving well past other fan groups.
Also Im not really doing this for money but I appreciate you thinking my goods are worth 10.00 GPB. Perhaps Ill make 6.00 the base price and let people pay what they think its worth beyond that. Lets let the community decide...after all something is only worth what someone else will pay for it.
I working on new molds for cases, I will announce something here very soon.
