What is the difference between homemade and handmade?

Well, “homemade” means “made at home” while “handmade” means made by hand, not by a machine. Many “homemade” items are also “handmade,” because people who make things at home aren’t factory owners and can’t afford expensive machinery. Likewise, many “handmade” items are also “homemade.”

Q. How do you determine the price of a handmade product?

In her Tips for Pricing your Handmade Goods blog on Craftsy, artesian entrepreneur Ashley Martineau suggests this formula:

  1. Cost of supplies + $10 per hour time spent = Price A.
  2. Cost of supplies x 3 = Price B.
  3. Price A + Price B divided by 2 (to get the average between these two prices) = Price C.

Q. How much should I mark up handmade items?

If you have a product that is well suited for selling wholesale and you hope to have your products carried in retail stores, you’ll want to add at least a 50% markup to your prices (multiply prices by 2). However, not all products are suited for selling at wholesale prices, and that’s okay.

Q. Why are handmade products expensive?

A craftsman has to do everything on their own and the whole process takes a lot of time.

Q. Why are handmade products better?

Items that are handmade take less energy and natural resources to produce than items made on a mass production assembly line. Since handmade items aren’t produced in large quantities, mass transportation of goods isn’t necessary.

Q. What is the typical markup on jewelry?
