Does it cost more for Ready Go tools to travel?
On each tools page, you will see a “From $___/day” or “/3 hour event” cost. You can think of that as the starting price for Ready Go tools. Depending on event size, location and other customizable options, the price may be more. Tools that indicate they will travel, likely have info about that on their page in the “Options and Pricing” section. And you can always just use the “Request a booking” button to ask the artist directly about pricing, they are friendly!
Why do you keep using the word “tool”?
In a literal sense of the word tool, we mean an object that is used to carry out a particular function. In this instance the function is to serve as a focal point that attracts people and then prompts conversation, participation and interaction. It is more than a tote filled with supplies or materials, we mean a specific physical object that one could point to and recognize as being essential to the purpose.
