Currently I charge around $20 per hour of work. In order to make this easier to control I have devised the following pricing schema:
- Base cost = $120 (YGO, MTG) or $140 (Hearthstone)
- Card complexity tiers:
- Easy = no extra charge
- Medium = $40
- Hard = $80
- Very hard = $120
- Extras (optional)
- LED lighting = $60
- Metal leaf foil = $20
- Extended artwork = $40
Besides the labor costs, there are also the following extra charges:
- Patreon priority tier (optional) = at least $30 (see Queue & Priority)
- Express fee (optional) = $60 (see Queue & Priority)
- Materials: the cost cards needed to create the shadowbox; varies depending on the actual card. For printed materials, there is a flat $5 fee per A4 sheet used.
- Shipping = $15 in Europe and $20 international. This service is provided via the national post, but I can also ship via DHL on request, but the costs vary depending on destination and will most likely be several times higher.
Payment is accepted via PayPal, Revolut or cryptocurrencies and is requested via an invoice after the card is finished.
If you have custom rarity requests or want certain details, please let me know during the price quote process.
Each order includes a clear plastic box for protection that can double as a display case.
Finally, if you have any custom request that does not fit in this pricing schema, feel free to contact me.
