    I think you could offer both options! If they want pre-printed, they buy the 50 option; if they want to print it themselves they pick the $20 custom option. Is that an option for you? I’ve seen it done both ways.

    I agree about offering both.  To demonstrate it I’d just make two different listings with samples/pictures of your items.  Then explain what the listing is for in the description:  the design or the design and print outs.  I think that people would appreciate the choice and you could in turn get more business. 


    Hope it works out for you!

    Mr. Tattoo just offers the design and the brides find their own printing. I think it’s easier and quicker this way. We don’t have the means or product to print in house and it would take longer for him to make a design, print it from a third party, wait for it to ship to us, and then ship to the client after he makes sure everything is fine. 

    Offering a flat rate for design services works better for him.

    I was going to offer both too πŸ™‚

    You could offer them as separate listings, or you could just put a line in the description of the printed product that says, “Electronic design for home printing also available for a reduced fee; send me a message for quote and to set up a private listing.”
