What should the customer know about your pricing?

Cakes by Christa has a $100 minimum for small orders.  The price increases with the complexity of design and additional materials.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The customer starts by submitting an inquiry for an estimate, then we work together to determine availabilty and customer preferences. The customer and I will have a brief consultation via email and potentially exchange a few pictures with design ideas.  Last step, send invoice and provide payment.  Work is not started without payment.
