Just made a $100.00 sale for my ceramic tiles. Buddy at the chain saw shop is a big Harley Davidson biker. He has 5 or 6 of them now. They are having a biker run on June 5th. He wanted 12 ceramics with different Harley Davidson pictures and or biker pictures to give away. So 48 cents each, a total of 5.76 plus tax I would say thats a pretty good profit. LOL
Man I wish I had good days like this more often.

Congrats. That day will come. All in due time. Once all these tiles are given out on the bike run, you probably see all kinds of different orders. Just from word of mouth.

I hope you included a business card on the back of each of those tiles? Those sound like a really cool give away.
Well yes that would be a good idea but I do not have any. Hoping for word of mouth sales from this. He actually ordered a 12x12 in tile for the event so a little more cash came my way. Wanted one to for display I guess at the main table.
I came up with this one but I need to pass it on to him before doing the tile. I found white foam board is the same thickness and is cheap for dummy tiles. Make it right first then engrave the tile.

Brought all of the stuff over to Derek at the saw shop and through in one extra fish board and the two wood clocks. He gave me an extra 50 bucks. Said no one works for free and my time is worth money. Also said when people see this stuff I might get more orders for other events. Pretty cool side job. LOL

Sweet, you should buy some heavy poster board, and engrave up some business cards to glue to the back or maybe some cork backing with your contact info engraved onto it.

I have been playing around with colors on the tiles. Basically its a layer of paint and you need to find the right setting to just remove the black paint enough to see the color you want to show. Pretty tricky as each time you paint one the thickness is different making you run a test piece first to find the right setting. This one is the first to turn out. Getting a layer of clear coat now. This helps protect the paint from getting scatched off.
