Why are there going to be price changes?
Clients of the time will remember that there was slight changes to the prices of individual models and also basing charges and material charges introduced.
At the time this was because i was undercutting myself a lot. To be able to live this dream i was working 12 hour days for £4 an hour.
For a long time now i have been working at a slightly better pay rate for genuine quality and professionalism you get from my service. I always go the extra mile and i almost always give a slight discount or some sort of extra favor to help people get exactly what they want.
Through doing this the general quality of the paint jobs has increased and are now at a place i am extremely happy with. This is not to say i ever let a mini "off the table" that i wasn't happy with, only that i recognize the progression through time.
Now i must increase those prices, my army deals are my most popular sales pieces and i simply must raise those prices. I am barely earning a living despite the fact i work full time and always have an order. I pay rent and have food money but all i do is work. And it occurred to me purely by random chance the other month that the Deals where way under priced.
So what will change?
I did not do this.
Therefore i must raise the prices. The original discounts will remain, although the general cost will increase. This simply must be done.
I give too great a quality compared to some other "budget" services to be able to work for those old rates. Simply put people are getting MUCH MORE for their buck than in theory they should be as per man hour/ cost ratio.
What are the new prices and when will this happen?
The new prices are thus and they will come into practice on September the 1st of 2016.
Old lv1 price: £250 (originally saving £50)
New lv1 price: £350 (still saving you £50)
Old lv2 price: £500 (originally saving you £100)
New lv2 price: £700 (still saving you £100)
Why are the current "savings" different to what you mention above right now
I treat my clients very well, with direct and fluid communication and i work to their exact instructions, i don't make mistakes and if i do ever i am direct and i fix it. I do my very best to never leave a client feeling dissatisfied. The reason i didn't make a change before is that i simply respect my clients too much.
I do realise the positive implications from a public point of view of a price rise, that being it goes a ways to represent my confidence in my work and also the value of it subsequently.
So what does this all mean?
So grab your bags of lead, withdraw your bags of gold and make an order. Now is your time to take advantage of these insane deals before i am forced to increase the price. Albeit only by a little, but it must be done.
