A fraternity with which Aspen has a long relationship approached Aspen with a special order for 5,000 pins at a price of $3.25 per pin. Variable costs will be the same as the current production, and the special order will not impact the rest of the company’s orders. However, Aspen is operating at capacity and will incur an additional $3,000 in fixed manufacturing overhead if the order is accepted. Based on this information, what is the differential income (loss) associated with accepting the special order?
