Working my way through a 30 card order

I wont get much time this week for individual cards or creating this week as I have an order for 30 baby thank you cards that I got asked to make for a neighbour.
The problem I have is how much to charge I usually charge £1.50 for my cards unless they are very labour intensive. So I am in a real quandary.
The card is an A6 double sided pearl card blank stamped with thank you, a stamped & embossed image matted on pearl card stock, two rows of glitter peel off, a mini button or a mini hand tied ribbon bow & a printed insert with a doubles sided pearl envelope.

Update: after posing the same question on the Docrafts forum & opening a real can of worms, with many people saying that they charge similar prices, the consensus of opinion was that £1.50 was too cheap for a handcrafted card & as crafter's we under value ourselves.

So i decided that as we hadn't previously agreed a price for the batch of cards I would charge half of my normal price, but stating that it was a special price, that way should I get any further orders I am not committed to the same price & if they want christening invites or thank you cards I have room for negotiation, I thought that this seemed fair.
Sadly the images don't show how beautiful the two tone pearlescent cardstock is by Anitas ~ Timeless pearlescents range.

Lisa I don't sell my cards but personally I think you are under valuing yourself at £1.50...its so hard because people just don't realise how much love and hard work goes into making a card.

I agree with Emma, hun, but I understand it was a tricky situation. The cards are beautiful - just make sure you charge a LOT more than that if you do the Christening cards! Hugs, Debs xxxx

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
