NO LABEL PRODUCTS:
No Label products are products which are already formulated and packaged and ready for you to add your label. You purchase the product "naked-so to speak" with no label and you add your own. This is the cheapest way for start up brands to get their line going. All of the information for each product as well as directions and ingredients is on our website. This makes it easy for you when labeling. There is information below on your labeling options as well as companies that we work closely with to achieve beautiful labels. Our No Label products have a 12 pc MQO requirement which is listed on our website. These products are not hot stamped with your logo. You will add your own logo to these.

Our Private Label products have a minimum order of 50 pcs per unit. Private label products can be screen printed with your label/logo on them. No label products can not. There is a mould fee for your label/logo which is a one time fee for that product. As long as your label/logo does not change for that product you will not be charged for that again with future purchases with in that category.
This allows you to focus on branding and selling your makeup and skincare products. You choose from a wide range of pre-existing, proven formulas and shades ready to be sold under your brand name with your own logo. We take care of all product development and manufacturing, so you can enjoy low startup costs, low risk and high profit margins.
As private label products are already made, order minimums tend to be lower than those of contract manufacturing. Additionally, startup costs are lower as you do not need to invest in research & development, as your private label company, we have already developed and tested all products. With so many products in our library, you can pick and choose to curate the perfect collection for your business and clientele. You can enjoy high profit margins by buying our products in bulk, as we do offer wholesale pricing. In turn you then upsell or charge a premium to your customers for the brand you have created.
Private label may be best suited for spa & salon owners, freelance makeup artists and beauty entrepreneurs who want to expand product offerings and retail services to include a makeup & skincare line.
I'm not going to lie to you. Custom manufacturing can be pricey depending on what you want. It's best for you to contact us via chat, email or phone if you have a custom requirement. Example, you want a new type of lipstick made that no one else has, we can make it for you with the ingredients and formulation you choose. Typically this service costs in the range of $1500.00 to $2000.00. But it's best to get an actual quote as I stated before.

MERCHANDISE, LABEL & PROMOTE:
For Hot Stamping:
When you Hot Stamp your logo, our tuen time is 2-3 weeks for your first order. Mainly because we have to make the plate that is your logo. Subsequent orders are about 7-10 days depending on the time of year and if it is our busy season. This is where our MQO comes in handy because if you buy 50 to 100 pcs you will have some product in stock to ship out and just reorder as you see yourself getting low in stock. No label product turn times are about 3-7 days.
Pricing Your Products:
Deciding how to price a product can mean the difference between success and failure for your small business. Price items too high and no one will buy, too low and you’ll struggle or even lose money. Pricing strategies are a mix of art and science, but the whole process can be streamlined into 3 primary factors covered here.
1. Understand the Basic Terms & Math of Product Pricing
In any conversation about product pricing, you’ll be asked about two terms: Markup and Profit Margin. Here’s what each means and the math behind the numbers.
Markup is the amount you add to your product cost to get your selling price. For example, let’s say you want to simply double your product cost to get to your final selling price. This is how it works:
|Final Selling Price||$200|
This gives you a 100% markup because you’re adding 100% of your cost to get to your selling price, basically just doubling your cost:
$100 x 2 = $200
This is a very simple and popular way to set product pricing, especially for retail and ecommerce sellers. But there may be times that you want to markup your products by a different percentage, say a 75% markup or a 150% markup. In these cases, the math isn’t quite as straightforward as doubling your cost. You’ll need to use this formula instead:
Cost + (Cost x Markup Percent) = Selling Price
For example, our $100 item with a 75% markup is figured like this:
100 + (100 x .75) = Selling Price
100 + 75 = $175
And a 150% markup looks like this:
100 + (100 x 1.50) = Selling Price
100 + 150 = $250
Determining your markup percentage and your base product cost can depend on several factors, such as wholesale costs, manufacturing costs, and overhead, which we explore below. But whatever those numbers are, now you know the math that you’ll use to apply your markup percentage to your product cost to get your selling price.
Profit margin is a percentage that’s figured on your selling price less the cost of your product. Note! Your Profit Margin percentage is not the same as your Markup percentage. This is how profit margin works:
|Final Selling Price||$200|
|Profit Margin||$100 or 50%|
So if a product sells for $200 and costs $100, you have a 50% profit margin. In the simplest terms, half, or 50% of your $200 sale is your profit, thus the 50% profit margin.
If you always double your product cost to get your selling price, you’ll always have a 50% profit margin. But that’s rarely feasible, so here’s the math you’ll use to figure your profit margin for other markups:
Commonly Used By: Retailers & Ecommerce Retailers
Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, or MSRP, is another top pricing strategy used by retailers and ecommerce sellers. This is a no-brainer pricing method. Your product manufacturer sets the MSRP, and that’s how you price your product. For most goods, you’ll find that MSRP is based on the Keystone pricing strategy covered above. But, they usually drop the MSRP selling price by 1-5 cents due to Psychological Pricing, which we’ll discuss next.
Here are common MSRP examples that you’ll find on manufacturer and wholesaler price lists:
|Your Wholesale Cost||MSRP|
The downside of using MSRP as your pricing strategy is that you’ll have the same prices as your competitors. So, you’ll have to differentiate your store in other ways, such as free shipping for ecommerce sellers, and exceptional in-store promotions for retailers.
Another thing to be aware of is that some suppliers actually insist that their MSRP is followed to preserve the value of their goods and brand. They will even force adherence by refusing to fill stock orders for stores selling under MSRP. This is something to be aware of when dealing with suppliers, especially if you intend to sell using any of the discounted pricing strategies that we cover below.
Choosing the Best Pricing Strategy for Your Small Business
Most businesses find that a mix of a few different pricing strategies works best to bring in customers, encourage sales, and end in a profit. For example:
- A small specialty retailer might Keystone the majority of their collection, but mark up hot sellers even more, say 150%. Then for promotions, they Discount the high-profit hot sellers to a Keystone price and still make a 100% markup. Clever!
- A store might have a set of replenishable Loss Leaders that make no profit but cross-sells private label products that carry a 200% markup. Beauty stores love this strategy. They sell low-cost replenishment items like eye makeup remover at cost, then cross-sell high-markup cosmetics and skin care.
- A specialty store struggling to attract upscale shoppers can switch to an Anchor Pricing strategy and market their store as a place to find great deals.
What’s best for your particular business depends on many factors, such as your industry, market, product line, location, business model, the list goes on. But whatever your business, you need to be sure your pricing strategy gives you enough markup to be profitable.
3. Make Sure Your Product Pricing Strategy is Profitable
The pricing strategies covered above offer good guidance on how to price a product. But you also have to ensure that the strategy, or mix of strategies, that you use result in enough income to cover your business’s overhead expenses and leave you some profit to fuel growth.
Once you figure up your average monthly overhead expenses, you’ll know how much you need to make off of product sales to break even. If, after running the numbers, you find your operating at a loss, try these 3 things:
1. Raise Your Prices
If you’re selling a decent volume of goods and your sales aren’t dependent on discount pricing, try raising some prices, particularly on your hottest sellers. This will increase your gross profits to cover your shortfall.
2. Increase Your Volume
If you’re just not selling enough product, it’s time to examine your pricing strategies. Are your prices too high? Maybe it’s time to try Anchor Pricing or set some items to Discount Promos or Loss-Leader Pricing to get shoppers in the door.
3. Lower Your Costs
It’s easy to let your costs creep up and eat into your profits. The first high-cost things to look at are your staffing needs and space. Do you need what you’re currently paying for? If not let some of it go, then see if you can increase your profits further by making smart stock buys. Don’t overbuy, but if your supplier is offering a discount, free shipping, or extended payment terms on goods that you move fast, take advantage of those buying opportunities.
The Bottom Line
There’s one hard fact about product pricing: The process never ends. The pricing methods and strategies we covered above will get you started on a path to profitability, but you must revisit, review, test, and tweak your pricing every step of the way. Your buying power will increase as your business grows, but so will your operating costs, salaries, and facilities needs. So deciding how to price a product, and the pricing strategies you adopt, will change as your business changes.
You might start with Keystone and MSRP, but as you grow, you might find that adding a collection of Loss-Leaders helps you drive far more business. Or, you might have a unique collection of goods, or develop a great private-label brand that you can sell for a markup far over Keystone. You might find that your handmade goods sell in lower volume, but at higher prices. This way you can make more per sale, and make more per hour spent creating your goods.
