2016. In January, the company spent $600,000 to develop a late-night advertising infomercial for the


new product. During 2016, the company spent $1,402,000 promoting the product through these


infomercials, and $819,000 in legal costs. The knives were ready for manufacture on January 1, 2016.

blade and the shaft. The stamping machine requires one hour per 250 knives.

the handle to the shaft and packs the knife into a decorative box. The direct labor cost is $0.45 per




The knives are sold to stores. Each store is given promotional materials, such as posters and aisle


displays. Promotional materials cost $60 per store. In addition, shipping costs average $0.15 per knife.


Total completed production was 1,200,000 units during the year. Other information is as follows:

Factory overhead cost is applied to jobs at the rate of $650 per stamping machine hour after the knife


blanks are stamped. There were an additional 28,000 stamped knives, handles, and cases waiting to


be assembled on December 31, 2016.
