Not just the value of your time to yourself (you could be spending that time doing other things, right? things you enjoy more or make you more money), but also the value of your time to the person commissioning you. The fact that I can put beads on a string to make a bracelet* is much more amazing--rare, and valuable--to others than it is to me. When someone else can't draw, design, or code worth a shit, they're willing to pay good money for someone who can and has had experience doing so--even if you think it's just your hobby and nothing special.BrainWalker wrote:The most logical approach would seem to be to figure in the value of your time and the materials consumed.

Call up and pretend to be an inquisitive customer, because if you put yourself out there as "for hire" you can bet people will be comparing your prices to others.

That's not right. I don't think I'd go so far as to say illegal, but they cannot withhold unconditional gifts given to an employee by a customer. If a customer came to you and said "as thanks for your work, please accept these cookies, I baked too many to eat myself" they would have no right to prevent you from accepting that. That's all a tip is: a gift.
