Artist Calculator


“Help! I don’t know how much I should charge!”

Pricing has always been a grey area for many artists. Not only have we been dealing with heavy symptoms of imposter syndrome (don’t get me started) but also, many of us have struggled to even know where to begin!

The artist calculator is an hourly based charging spreadsheet for artists and creators of personal projects and art products.

  • Included in this calculator are pricing solutions for: exhibiting artists, freelance artists, custom products to sell at craft fairs and/or markets, licensing agreements.

Microsoft Office Excel


Is this product the answer to all of my pricing woes?


This tool is purpose built and formulated for artists, designed to serve as a guide to help you reach solid price points – backed by a carefully curated set of formulae.


If you wish to generate prices based on time, money, materials & variable costs – it is perfect for that, as it incorporates all of these, to ensure you set a price that will generate a profit. If you wish to base your prices around your competitors, it will provide you with a sturdy, logical price point to work with as a starting point for you to merge with your market research findings.

I’ll be honest. If you are a designer who undertakes projects for businesses – it is encouraged that you consider charging based on the value and potential impact of your designs for that business, as opposed to solely relying on the hourly based method used within this calculator.

You may want to use this to set a starting point for your prices,  just to give you an idea of what your minimums should be, to at least cover you for your time and resources.

Full care and consideration has been taken to ensure that the APC is accessible to all, regardless of creative sector. The ability to change your hourly rate & material costs gives you the power to fully customise the generator to cooperate with your price range – whether you sell at a lower rate or charge high end prices.


Can I access the template on all devices?


The file can be opened through Excel on laptops and desktops as well as through the Excel app on smartphones & tablets.


What is Included?


Along with the APC tool, there is also a help guide included to refer to if you find yourself getting a little bit foggy.


Can this tool be used internationally?


Sure can! The default currency is set to UK pound sterling. However, there is a help guide included with the quick & easy steps to take if you are based outside of the UK.


Are returns/refunds accepted?


As the APC is available for download as soon as the purchase has been made, they are non-refundable.  It is advised not to tamper with any of the formulae to ensure you have the best experience of the product. Should you encounter any issues when using the tool, or believe it to be defective in any way, send details through to: to have any issues or queries investigated & resolved.

The APC is designed to serve as a quick, efficient and reliable way to help tackle the process of setting your own prices. Methodical and logical, you can now spend less time worrying about what to charge clients and spend more time creating.
