I have a couple pointers that could help you out with these if you dont mind. Those feet on the rail are a bit overkill! You can simply change them for a couple flatsteel pieces at 20mm x 70mm x 4mm or simular. If you have access to a shop that does powdercoating, a coat of that would be epic! Satin black structure or something..

As for the ledge....cut the tile in 6 pieces that measure 50mm x 300mm and make the bases out of 10mm thick (or simular) plywood and make a simple box that measures 40mm wide/290mm long/50mm high (front, back, left and right sides only needed, no top and bottom piece).

This will give you a total of 6 ledges at 50mm x 300mm pr tile + will make a more affordable product yet still room for profit. A pack of 10pcs 300mm x 300mm tiles will give you enough to make 60pcs of these ledges all together. The wooden box can be painted or whatever to make it look cool..

Here is a example - feel free to use this design as you please! happy

I'd take full advantage of bakkos advice as you'll probably never get advice that detailed/helpful ever again.

I saw the video on the box, it actually looks pretty cool.

Just something to consider though, BRR sells their box 3 for $20 US. 
It has 2 types of coping, a bank on one side, BRR logo tape along it, a burnt in logo, and they have a really good reputation for making solid, well made ramps. Even with the branded professional finish they recognise for a minor obstacle people are willing to spend about $20, and that's for the "top companies" product.

I'm not trying to throw you off, I'm sure you've put a lot of effort in here, it looks nice.
But you need to ask yourself the question, why would people buy your product and not somebody else's ? (BRR, Big Construction, Bonsei, harrier etc etc) 

I have a business of my own, non fingerboard related, and have done for 3 years. It's my full time job and pays my bills. 

happy good luck.

No worries man, hope you don't think I'm being to negative. 

Yep, totally got that. Would be better to offer a price + shipping in my opinion.
Makes the overall purchase seem less at first, then once somebody's heart is hooked on it, a few bucks extra won't matter wink 

Plus, if somebody lives in the same state, they would be a little dissapointed paying the same "shipped" price as somebody at the other end of America happy

Quite honestly, I won't even consider you until you get your prices down. There is no reason for that ledge to be $30.

This seems like one of those ebay products that will say "free shipping" but then make the product cost way more then it should to make up for it, I don't think decieving your customers into thinking they are getting a good deal by "free" shipping is a very trust worthy way to introduce your company.

Honestly, I try to keep my mouth shut on most of these posts but this is pretty unimpressive. You've insulted most of the people who've tried to give you advice, clearly don't care about professionalism and to top it off want to overcharge for a fairly uninspired item. You obviously haven't sold any of these because if you did, you'd find that shipping international and eating the cost would leave you with next to no profit after materials.
Sure, I guess I'm hating, but I've seen way too many threads like this on here. I think that there's room for "boutique" obsticals and I'll wholeheartedly support any company or product that's well thought out and repped with a good attitude, but I just can't get behind this as it sits.
Good luck to you.

**BREAKING NEWS**

After using these in person, they are totally worth $30! Made using expensive italian tiles with a fancy name that I can't remember, and a super strong epoxy, these are fricken indestructible. They are SO smooth, and offer an incredible slide. They come in cool different shapes and slants, and are by far the best ledges I've ever used.

So I have to apologize for not believing. Hah.

They are really, really nice. Super solid, really smooth grind and they have a really nice texture, but it is really smooth at the same time. HIGHLY recommend. Also thanks to True Stone for becoming a last minute sponsor!
