I will never be convinced that "Monsterweights" are for me. Nevertheless, others really find benefit, and EVEN IF (???) the benefit is only perceived (We'll table that never-ending discussion.) just as placebo medicines have TRULY saved many people's lives, etc. (again, for another discussion on another day, if ever).
The main point that I am leading to here is that you are not charging enough for these caps. It's too much work to be in contact with a customer, obtain your materials, do all of the work producing them, allow for minor goofs and redos, put them in a box, label and tape up the box, ship them, and yak (often fairly extensively - delightful though it is, but let's face it - time consuming) with the customer before, during, and after for only $50 or $80.
I realize that saying this to you in a public forum is kinda weird, but I don't think it makes any difference. Those who want your caps, enjoy them, and realize benefits, will be glad for you to come out OK on them.
Think about it,
