Of course there is the cost of materials, investment in tools, and the cost of consumables to complete the actual project. There's subscription costs for domain names, web hosting, design software, eCommerce platforms, advertising, and many other overheads. The small business owner also gets to be photographer, web designer, accountant, social media savant, marketing guru, writer, researcher, artist, buyer, customer service rep, sales rep, etc.
None of this is a complaint. Far from it! When you buy something I have made, you allow me to do all these things. I thank you for appreciating the #passion and #craftsmanship that has gone into making your special 'thing.'
