    $0.80 each for a digital print on intermediate vinyl, with laminate, and contour cut and weeded. No app tape, simple contour cut only.

    Sub out the work, it's not worth your time to layer the vinyl.

    If it is small text I would print them. $1.25 to $2.50 print/laminated and cut.

    If they're single color.... maybe $1.30 each. But if you're layering vinyl.... no way man. Tell him they have to be printed or you're not interested. Trust me.... that many small decals.... NOT FUN TO LAYER VINYL!!!

    I used to do hundreds upon hundreds of 4" 2 color decals. Living.... nightmare.....

    thanks I figured out the layering of vinyl and turn those down all the time, I'm gonna invest in a printer/cutter one of these years just for that reason.

    thanks again

    Assuming they're all the same, you're better off looking into die-cutting.
    You'll make more money for less work.
    Stouse, Gill Line and Gregory are 3 that come to mind and can quote you a price. You just add your mark up and design fee to the cost.

    Not really. For that small of a quantity (250 per design) they'll rake him over the coals. It'd be more cost efficient to have a local printer do them for him than Stouse... UNLESS he gets into quantities of ATLEAST 500. Preferably 1000. For small quantities, Stouse sure charges you.

    Go to their website and check out their prices and you'll see what I mean.:Big Laugh
