Unit Cost Estimator

The Unit Cost Estimator allows you to calculate the manufacturing cost and unit price of your custom board game while you design. Check the cost per unit in real time as you add, remove and edit your game’s components. View price break points to see the quantities at which the Unit cost price changes.

Frequently asked questions

At the top of your component list page is a Unit Price Estimator button. Click on this to view a price estimate for your project as it currently stands.

Adjusting the number of units to be produced will show the effect of different quantities on the cost per unit. The more units you produce, the lower the cost per unit.

Beneath the Number of units selector are two tabs:

  • Project breakdown: This is a list showing the individual components in your project and the cost associated with each component.
  • Unit cost price breaks: This is a visual way to show where the major price breaks occurs and how this affects the cost per unit.

The components in your game should match the atmosphere of the game's narrative. Customising your game's components draws your players in, creating an immersive game experience before the first move is even made. Not only can we create custom board game boxes to keep all the pieces in one place, but also other items, such as drawstring bags, to keep the components organised and in good condition within these boxes.

Keep in mind that having specialised pieces for your project will affect production costs and timelines. Learn more about how we can become your custom board game manufacturer for larger orders.

You can use the unit cost estimator on Launch Lab to calculate the unit cost of your custom board game as you design it. Simply add, remove, and edit your game's components, and the tool will update in real time, showing price break points and quantities at which the unit cost will change. Depending on the size of the order and the number of components, your board game’s manufacturing cost will change accordingly. For larger orders beyond 1,000 units, we recommend using mass manufacturing. Learn more about custom board game printing.

Through our Unit Cost Calculator, you can trial different quantities to see what impact it has on production costs. As the quantity increases, the cost per unit will adjust once orders exceed certain thresholds. Whether you’re concerned about the printing costs of your card game or manufacturing costs for your board game, the production cost per unit for your game will decrease as the quantity increases.

Once you've estimated the production cost for your card game, you'll also want to obtain an estimate for shipping it. If your country does not use postcodes, obtaining a shipping estimate for your card game is possible.

We recommend using a commonly recognized placeholder code such as "0000" when filling out the postcode field during the shipping estimate process. This allows the system to proceed with generating an estimate based on other address details provided.

Our prices are not negotiable. We have carefully determined our custom board and card game prices based on various factors. These factors include materials, production processes, and operational costs. All these elements contribute to the total production costs for your custom board or card game.

We aim to offer transparent and consistent pricing to all our customers. If you have any further questions about pricing, don't hesitate to reach out to your project manager.

Have any questions that aren’t covered above? You may find the answer over in our Knowledge Base.
