# New to co packing any help appreciated

I have a label roll printer and a zap labeler unit.

We have a shop asking us to pack their hemp flower in 1/8 jars. Does anyone have suggestions of what to charge people for less than 25lbs labled and jarred up?

I was calculating at 2000 8ths labeled by hand at 220 jars per hour call it 9.5hrs
hand weighing id say 4 8ths a min. so 9 hrs of weighing and capping.

employees at \$20/hr they provide the jars and hemp material

zap labeler can do about 1500-2000 labels/hr with 1 operator

with way just wondering what a far bill to charge is

\$1.40 per unit for 2k units.

9.5hrs * \$20 = \$190 x 3 employees (assuming 1 weighing, one fill/capping, 1 labeling) = \$570

Assuming you bought the \$599 zap labeler, \$200 electricity cost (assumed) = \$1369 your cost. Decide what you want the margin to be and then divide that total across 2k jars.

Just how I would do it, but Iām no business man.

thanks for the input 100% yeah i calculated in total 9.5hr labeling and 9 in weighing and capping. So 20hrs total or a 7hrs shift for 3 people.

The labeling machine could knock out 8hrs of labeling.

Im starting to look into the hopper fed weighing machines if anyone knows a machine that has been reliable. There plenty of options but when youre about to dropp 50k-100k deff want to make sure the machine is reliable and easy to operate
