boy i may need to raise my prices. lol $70 for deer and antelope. $50 more if they want a plaque.
I beetle clean, degrease and whiten for $100, if you want a plaque with stand its another $50 and if you want it camo dipped its another $70 on top of that. Suprisingly to me the camo skulls is what everyone has said that they want. I haven't got any heads in hand yet but I have a fellow deer processor that I took a few road kill euros to to show off what I can do and he has 8 heads waiting in his freezer for me last I talked to him. That over $1000 gross that I will bring in just by putting 2 euros out on display at a buddys business!
If you really want to get some business find some local deer processors and a couple antlered euros and get them in their facilities if at all possible. Offer the processor %10 or %15 of what ever service you sell to their customers. you will be suprised how much business you will get this fall/winter.
Dang! I'm charging $85 right now and comes mounted on a solid Oak panel.This is my first year and next year it will be $100 or $125 for sure.This is in GA.
holy crap I charge $75 to macerate, degrease, and whiten in peroxide then I attach to an old piece of barnwood time for an increase
I am at $140, with no plaque
I'm at $150 with a plaque.
X2,I was $100 then seen how much of a pain it was
Most hunters I talk to around here seem to get a little nervous if you charge LESS than $100 for something to be done in ANY taxidermy work. In central NC $200 for cleaning, degreasing, whitening, putting it on a plaque AND camoed is about all that they are willing to pay. Around here if you get them to $200 they start talking about sending it to get a full shoulder mount done. Keeping your price at a little better than half of the going rate for shoulder mounts in your area is how I would price most of my work. I can't argue with them, if I was less than $100 away from a full shoulder mount I would go with the shoulder mount as well. I preferr shoulder mounts on the deer that I kill but I won't shoot a buck unless he is worthy of spending $400+ on to get a shoulder mount. I am just glad every hunter ain't like me, i would be out of business lol!!
$200 here in sunny Arizona, no plaque.
Whitetail and antelope $100 cleaned, degreased and whitened with a plaque $150 here in Idaho
I charge $75 for prep, beetle, and whiten.
This thread is 9 years old and you are still charging less than they did then. Things that make you go HMM?
... yup. Here we go again. 5 pages of pricing up and down the scale.....
If you are not in the business and you are not making a living at it and you do NOT plan on doing anyone else's but his one, then charge what you think is right for you.
Make it clear you only do his ONE for that price and only for him.
$200 for deer euro and $250 for euro on a plaque. I dont mean to offend anyone but some of the prices on this question are crazy low. I am in Oregon.
Nothing more fun than a 10 year old thread! There are many people here that do them for $50 with a homemade panel. I went in a different direction to attract skull customers...hydrodipping. Then, some ding-a-ling comes up with this thing of dipping them in a bucket of water with a bunch of paint sprayed in it...and they totally look like sh!t to me! Our beetle cleaned and hydrodipped skulls are $195 on an attractive piece of western cedar. We do dozens of them annually.
Yep that paint dipped looks like shit! I tried it once, wont fool with it again.
OR the quick turn around spray painted white skull not degreased for $130 drives me nuts.
