    Pricing is also dependent on location. Just like housing or wages.

    They are entitled to think that the price is too high... that has nothing to do with if it is, or isn't. My 2¢

    If you were at a dollar, they would ask for 50 cents. That's just how people are. Just walk away and be professional. They'll be back when they can't pour beer.

    Brian, nice looking design!

    Question, I noticed that you have the Roman numerals MMXXIII, which struck me as odd. One would guess such a number would be the year something important happened, like maybe the starting of the brewery. But 2023 hasn't happened yet. Just wondering if maybe this was supposed to be 2013, or some other year that has already taken place. Chuck

    I was thinking $150 to $200, depending on the volume.
    I did an inlaid T handle that was a one-off for a friend. The modeling was easy, but I had a lot of time in it making it exceptionally nice.
    I don't even remember what I charged, I think I traded for something.
    If I did another, I wouldn't be afraid to charge $300+.

    Granted, that's an heirloom personalized piece for an individual and your beer company doesn't want anything like that.
    I understand their thinking, but were you to make something exceptional, it'd sure stick out among the 50 microbrew taps on the wall.
