Recipe book feedback price


Andrea

Recommended Posts

We had three options for the recipe book, soft cover, hard cover, or 3 ring binder. The 3 ring binder by far is the nicest (a little more expensive though) and that is what my mom and I decided on.

The book company suggests a selling price for $12 based on our number of recipes and 3 ring binder style. We have about 400 recipes.

What do yuo all think, is $12 a "fair" price?

Yes, ma'am, $12. is a very reasonable price. Our town Welcome Wagon did a cook book....oh, 18-20 years ago. We chose the plastic spiral for the binding...and as I remember the charge was $10. then!

So $12. is quite reasonable. Thanks for all your hard work, Andrea.

I just want it for Christmas at any price. :D I am looking forward to giving this to everyone on my list and cutting my shopping time way down. Should we preorder so you have a count of how many to order? I don't know about anyone else but I am getting so excited to see it.

Thanks Andrea and all the proof readers!

Andrea,

Sounds like a good price to me. Can I be so bold as to ask how much LCSC will get of this $12? As far as shipping is concerned, does anyone have a good "shipping" connection? A lot of money made these days on Internet shopping, is by shipping at a much cheaper rate than is charged. Just my accounting 2 cents. Thanks Andrea!

Good questions :)

Amount to order--200 is minimum. I was thinking of ordering 500. I am debating 600, but that could be excessive. Don't you all think? I could always get more if we need, or just sell the 500 for years ;)

Costs---I believe (having not yet placed the order so don't know if taxes apply, etc) the books will cost $5.40 each to print. LCSC will NOT be paying that, I will be doing it.

Profits---LCSC will get 100% of the profits. So if it costs $5.40 and we sell for $12, that is $6.60 per book.

Shipping--I will be adding shipping rate. I am researching on line prices of boxes and shipping to know how m uch

Pre-order--Once order is placed with the company, I will get coupons to accept pre-orders and pre-orders will be welcome for fastest shipping. I am about to set up a seperate bank account officially only for the cookbooks, and I also will set up a paypal account for those of you like me who hate to write checks :)

Andrea,

I'm thinking of asking my cancer center and/or hospital gift shop if I can leave some cookbooks there on a consignment basis. Is this something feasible that we can do, do you think?

Now I think these can ship the media rate Andrea and its much cheaper. Katie shipped those notebooks media rate and they were only $3 something -- and they weighed like 5 pounds each! I am going to need about 25 to 30 cookbooks:lol: . What can I say, its a big Christmas list--damn employees. Now if we could do a new book every year... :P
