Blimey!

That's got more bubbles than one of my jobs!

No, seriously, very nice :D

Seems quite cheap though. Is that the going rate in your neck of the woods?

Nice Andrew.

I agree with Chalkie though, seems too cheap. I`d be after £250.00 minimum.

I wish, there are way too many cowboys over here working out of their garden sheds. So called sign experts............So certain jobs you can get more for than others.
And since we dont have to buy in the prints, which would invlove more costs, it works out OK.

Cowboys in garden sheds? Hope Mike doesn't read this :lol: :lol:

I know what you mean though. The competion on prices is severe here but that is just the type of job where I would have thought you could have distinguished yourself from the competition and kept your prices up.

Will be interested to see what others think this job is worth.

I’d have wanted more than £190 for the lettering (including that on the prints) alone without the prints. And I work from a garage and back bedroom office.

That's a £350.00 er all day long down in the Smoke Digi print is still regarded as quite special and you can get decent dosh for it round are way

Unless your speaking to Pat from D.I.K. Blockpavin who turned up sporting the regulation hi-vis vest, he went on to explain this was his brothers transit could I do his the same. it was chevron from blinker to blinker and panelled in extracts from the marshals blockpaving catalogue by the bloke down the road for £50 quid cash
could I do the same.

Nice job I said ill sub all my work out to him from now on and sit around drinkin cocktails playing crochet.

He replied ''Are you a fcukinmad he said why would he do it for you when he can do it forem direct''

At this point I backed away in submission realising subcontractor was not in this blokes dictionary.

PS No Racist Pun intended.

if i was in your position, ide be looking at around £350 mate.. if i was running them on my pc60 :lol: :lol: and although im laughing i would still charge that out at about £8- £10 per A4 for the prints & thats a reduced rate because of the amount needing printed. ok the maxx has much lower running costs & your obviously happy with the profit. but remember, your cowboys down the road arent running around with that kind of equipment up their sleeve. :wink:

I'm with the rest Andrew, peg ya' prices up a bit. They'll respect you more for it!
That's good quality workmanship there
Pleasing layout and well thought out
Cowboys :evil: simply don't do this kind of work
They take the path of least resistance to make a quick buck then scarper, premises 'n' all. (:) (:)
With work like this you don't need to worry about the cowboys :wink:

Thanks guys, will have to have a look at the pricing here, on the artwork front, the customer gave me a small jpg of the water drops and I stretched it and added some light effects, they took it into Omega and added some text, simple.

The van was delivered to me at 10am when I measured it and run the prints including cutting the lettering, he collected it at 2pm.
The handy thing about the Maxx is you can queue all the jobs and then go away and do something else, like cut all the lettering and apply them.
And by that time the prints are ready to remove and apply WET....using Overlay.
