That's a very good question ralphster44. Personally I think that between $5-15 is fair for syringes and $10-15 is fair for prints, if they are of good quality (meaning very low chance of contaminants) and have a nice spore density. Most vendors sell is this range anyway and with specials prices are even more reasonable. Good customer support is just as important to me as a consumer as product quality, but all factors being equal I think that the prices I quoted above are fair to everyone.

I think $10.00 plus shipping is about right for syringes, I've never gotting any prints so I wouldn't know whats fair for them..

my personal belief is syringes and prints should be the same price even though you lose spores selling in print form, you gain the cost of the syringes, and the cost of time of making them up....syringes should just be for the ease for newbies.... but this is only my opinion


so i would say $10-$15 (depending on strain) for both $20 tops for hard to obtain strains

Well It all depends. I would add what it costs to make the prints or syringes (The whole process) together and times it by 2. This seems resonable. Just what it costs to make it and what your time is worth.I thinks sporeworks had decent priced prints but I highly doubt there like your dinner plate prints.

10-15$ syringes, 20-25$ prints are good/fair prices in my opinion.

I agree with mlv

$10 to $15 for syringes
$20-25 for prints.

Those prices are for cubes only.  Other species deserve a little more. 

Its funny how you can buy seeds (weed) for upwards of $100.    But when it comes to a rare, hard to domesticate, tough to reproduce strain everyone still wants them for the same price as a cube!  :smile:

Hmmmm, let me check with the STP and see what they think is fair. :tongue:  Ok seriously I think the prices that you and other venders here charge are very reasonable, especially when you take into consideration how much work is involved.  Haven't tried making my own syringes yet and at your prices probably won't unless something changes in this state to make spores illegal. 

Venders here are the best.

The only problem I see with your statement Lana is that vendors aren't (to the best of my knowledge) selling isolates. That would warrant a heftier price tag, but I am not aware of anyone who is offering a high yielding, stable tryptamine content isolate. This would be more analogous to a good weed breeder who sells either good F1 seeds or a stabilized strain.
I would say that a good person in the lab could easily generate somewhere between 10-20 sporeprints an hour and many more syringes.
Not that I mind people earning a decent living, but I know how much it costs to set up a nice lab and how much most of these supplies cost. So when a person is pulling in $20 for a cubensis print, then that is generating a sizable amount of money. Even if only 50 prints were sold in a week, that would is still $1000 for cubensis prints.
Now for rarer species then I think between $20-30 (perhaps more for seriously difficult species) would be good, but honestly, which cubensis strains are on the market which were hard to domesticate and who did the work?
Please understand that I am merely encouraging discussion on this issue. I respect many of the vendors in here and have dealt with several of them with no complaints at all.
peace

High Ralph,

Quality takes time, like good customer service takes time.
You asked us about a price set.

I just think some renomated companies should work together, just get in touche, you are all in the same postion.
Sell much at a low price or sell less for a little higher price.
And hey what is 10 bucks for an endless cultivation source.

Let the spore ring deal with the low prices :laugh:

I realy think you should try to organize with some okee vendors with the same mind set. Being a vendor is more than showing how well you are comercial skilled.
Being a vendor on the shroomery means even more.

Bye the way today I was contacted by a starting vendor to sell him prints so he could start his business. I had to disappoint the fellow as I will not sell donated prints, neither my own prints. Just had to share this with you :laugh:

Goodluck with your business my friend and if you need some help, just ask :laugh:

I think you should make the highest acceptable price you can make. So you can earn as much money as you can, still not being called by name I used to cal you :smile:.

I mean, its all the law of the market. If the customer wants to spend more money on the print, its not your fucking problem. Untill someone gets better deal.

I think $10 a syringe and $25 a print(must be absolutely sterile, not just clean at this price) is the price things should go for. Anybody who charges less should be shot, and anybody who charges more should be run out of business.

Charge shipping if you want.

As of now, Spore Works has the lowest print prices that I know of from a reliable vendor at $13. I won't buy prints from anyone but them unless a vendor is willing to go lower.

what is an acceptable profit margin might be the better question. 50%... 40%.... 100% ? if all suppliers agreed to a fixed profit margin, it would be easy for consumers to make a decision then... or maybe not!

a vendor would need to consider all costs...

what a competent technician is paid ( per print / per syringe / per hour )
that the technician spends more time isolating better genetics
print quality / spore density in a syringe
cost of syringes
what are prints made to ( glass slides, tin, paper, plastic )
shipping methods
expenses tied to business operation ( energy, internet costs/maintenance, advertising )


recently i aborted a grow... lost my nerve (another story). i was amazed at the difference between the rate which the innoculated cultures grew. and how that same culture took over all the mason jars. night and day difference. they were both supposed to be the same species, but definitely came from different sources. identical conditions for both, same media, same innoculating conditions, same tempertures and same grow media. if i ever decided to grow, i already have a good idea who's spores i'd prefer to use...
