Paracord Helper

Just input the wrist size for the bracelet you want to make, press "Calculate", and this app will tell you everything you need to know!

-The "Material Cost" field is calculated by adding the average cost of buckles, $0.51 for bracelets/$0.61 for 4 Strand Round Braid or $1.10 for LightBanz bracelets + cost of cord used, usually about $0.10/ft.

-For bracelets, the "Cost" field is calculated by adding the Material Cost + Time To Make the bracelet (I estimated average hourly working rate at $10.00/hour, you can pay yourself more or less by changing the values higher or lower in either the "Charged Hourly Rate" or "Time To Make" box.)

-Wholesale price is calculated by marking up the Cost by 25%.

-Retail price is calculated by marking up the Wholesale price by another 25%.

-LightBanz set to 8 inches, since most LightBanz are no longer than that. Wrist size set to 7 by default to accommodate 1 inch takeup from paracord. Wrist size may be adjusted for smaller wrists if you choose to alter LightBanz bracelet.

*I used my callipers to measure the width and thickness on all my bracelets, but I use 5/8 buckles and double my core strands, so if you use smaller buckles or only use 2 strand cores, you might be able to knock off 1-2 feet from the "Total Cord Used" field, but just be careful. The "Total Cord Used" field is meant to be a estimated guide as to how much cord is in the finished bracelet, not exactly how much cord you'll need from start to finish.
