Welcome back, your siggy is so cute,Elijah is getting so big. I'm so happy your DH is home with you now. Congrats on the new business, i'm not sure what i would charge, you could look on Ebay to see what other people charge, i know alot of ladies sell pre-made pages, i've never charged anyone for my albums yet but am thinking of doing that for some baby albums. Good luck

[welcome back! I am so glad your dh is home! Elijah is getting so big!

I would make sure you charge enough to cover your costs for materials and something per hour you work. I think Chandra has charged for an album and I think there may have been or two other girls on here that have done it too. Good luck with your new business!

We have made scrapbooks for other people via the store and charged $5 a page. IT WAS NOT ENOUGH to cover the supplies let alone the work. I think chargeing $8-10 per page is more like it.

Hi! I am new to the board, so I'm not sure if I remember you or not. It's so good to see different people here!! Chanda did some pages for me and she charged me $9 for a single page and $8 for a two page layout. She put all the stuff together and I added my own pics. I have since started doing my own pages, but I go back to hers all the time for reference.

over here, NO ONE could afford 8 doller a layout. ( i know someone who charges 5 dollers a layout and no one goes to her) ive decided to charge a flat rate and really bargain shop for supplies and use the leftover supplies i have from my sons album. im going to charge 50 dollers for a small album and 75 for a large 12x12. im not really looking to make money, just to have something to do and make art for people.
