    Well, you did not say wether you were printing these signs or cutting...and weeding ..vinyl. It would make a difference to me on how I would price this.

    wow... the world is sooo different in other places
    I would never have to work that hard for $300
    Holy smokes!

    I charge those prices for single face 12" x 18" (less for 12 pcs though)

    at $24 ea, that's $2/sq. ft. and a lot more time laying down vinyl (cut or printed) then if it was a big banner. People here grumble about $2/sq. ft. banners (as well they should)... but they would work harder on this junk, for less? ...and throw in stakes too??

    by the way, what kind of stakes will hold up a 2' x 3' sign?
    (not those little cheapie coro kind I hope)

    18" x 24"ers....

    sell for $25 a piece with stakes.
    I'd do them for $30 each.

    yeh...

    $360 for a Saturday afternoon cash.
    Any day of the week.
    AND I won't charge extra for getting the copy straight.
    Ya gotta realize, I don't live on an island in the middle of an ocean.
    I can drive 10 miles to the warehouse and get supplies.
    Very lucky in the materials department.

    so twice as big, same price.
    OK, just checkin'

    ...when I saw 18x24, I thought maybe I wasn't the only one who thought the prices in this thread were low.

    I do realize the freight & higher cost of living push my costs and my prices up.... but I do read about mainland prices on here all the time, so was a little surprised on this one, thats all.

    24x18, double-sided, one color $45 ea., using pre-cut blanks. $2 per step stake.

    36x24, double-sided, one-color $85 ea., stakes will vary.

    Points:

    1) 36x24 would require in-house cutting, thus cutting charge is factored in.
    2) Would never recommend any type of wire stake for 36x24 due to wind (even slight amount would knock over sign), therefore would supply or suggest quckie wooden 1x2 stakes.
    3) The idea is to make a profit and just because a job can generate more than the expected/hourly rate we would not be giving that up.

    i would talk the customer into a 32" x 24" for better yield, i would sandwich two pieces of coro together glued together with silicon with a 3/4" white angle iron stake through the middle. I would get $65 each for them...

    $780 plus tax or i'd try for $700 ca$h

    four sheets of coro @ $28, 22 yards of Avery A6 vinyl @ $40

    half a day to throw it all together...

    24 x 36 ya can only get 4 out of a 4x8 with a throw away 1x8
    would use a 10mil coraplas..doing a window that size might be as low as $60 each .. but would try $90 each a whole 4x8 window splash would be $250 but perm vinyl or 1shot $350 trying for $500
    so it pays more to do bigger ads also work load is less
    so I stay away from stuff like that cause ya don't get enough plus sales time is same
