Hello! First of all I love your art, it's incredible seriously! ;; And if it's not too much to ask (it's ok if you don't wanna answer!) where exactly do you make your charms from?.. I've been into trying making some of my own with my drawings but I don't know where to start... and I've brought your merch and it's just so pretty and nice ;; so yeah >\\\\< I hope I didn't overstep with this question
Hi, thank you very much man :D
I’m glad you like my work and bless you for buying my merch T v T
Ah I don’t mind sharing some sources but next time ask via non-anon :-)
I recommend these sources for charm making since they offer more than just charms but also other merchandise. I’ve ordered from them before via group order with friends.
UK based so prices are in GBP and they offer discounts/sales from time to time. Other than acrylics, they also offer prints, stickers, enamel, etc.
In my opinion, they are pricey (Conversion rate wise from GBP to PHP) but the quality is good :)
I believe this is US based? They offer acrylic charms with different finishing (wood, glitter, frosted, etc–side note: Zap Creatives also offer this). They do a bulk pricing system and you can check out their rates over here.
They’re cheaper by a bit from Zap Creatives and if you’re in the US, shipping is cheaper too!
Another US based merch maker. They’re known for the prism bookmarks, but they also do acrylic charms. I haven’t tried them yet but I might consider in the future LOL
I hope these help you with your start-up in making merch of your own. You have to remember that making merch in general is a high risk, high reward kind of thing. Please make sure you put into account the production costs you will spend to make these items. That you will, in some way, make profit from it—even if its a small amount. :)
You have to be 100% sure of the risk of making merch, try to make a quantity that you know you can sell. Remember it’s ok to have a small stocks of merch because you can always make more later on when people demand for it.
(PS. My economics teacher would be so proud of me LOL I’m applying her teachings :-)) )
