Do You Post Your Face Painting Prices?

Do you post your face painting prices?
To post, or not to post? That, is the question…

Whether or not business owners should list their prices publicly seems to be a source of lively debate. Caitlin from Cait’s Paints took a look at both sides of the argument, and broke it down in her latest article. Worried that clients will be put off by the numbers? Is responding to client emails about rates laborious, repetitive, and frustrating?¬†Different methods will work better for different business models. Don’t worry, there’s a solution for everyone.

Head over to Artist Alley for the pros and cons of listing prices, and add your two cents to the debate!

The reason the FABAIC has achieved longevity and success is largely in part due to the fact that the producers are active face and body painters themselves. We brainstorm after each convention on how to improve classes, what are the popular themes and trends in the industry, and how we can plan the best possible convention for our fellow artists. We acknowledge that artists usually have to save up for the year to attend the FABAIC, which is why we go the extra mile to produce an event that exceeds their expectations. Upon arrival, attendees are greeted with bright colors, a welcome staff, and a convention goody bag filled with a t-shirt, schedule, and free goodies courtesy of the FABAIC and sponsors. Our talented instructor staff is usually in the lobby meeting and greeting attendees or painting their faces to kick off the weekend. Then we open the doors with a HUGE party and get everyone warmed up to express their colorful side. Whether you attend alone or bring a friend, you are guaranteed to leave feeling like you have found your long lost artistic family. So again, why should you make the time, effort, and investment to attend?
