If you have so much information, why don't you just tell us your already quoted price ?? You're kinda doing this backwards.

Most people come here without a clue as to how to price something... then want to know what everyone else is getting round the world. You've already done your homework, landed the job and now want to know if you left money on the table.

Most people won't post up numbers, but we can at least point you in the right direction after we have some input from you.



They
must've jumped too fast and now you're second guessing yourself. :Oops:

That's a pretty good profit for each tanker. But are you printing them as a white square, or on Clear? What about lamination? Tankers get abused by the cleaning companies they usually contract out to.

I assume this would be print-n-cut or cut vinyl.

I say you're in the ballpark, albeit a little competitive, but not low-ball.
We probably would have quoted $1800 - $1900

it will be both mostly cut vinyl and the globes will be digital w/ laminate

Ahh... heck yeah. That's a good price.

(But I don't know about that whole 1 pass thing. Sounds like something a lowball shop would do. How can you stand behind your quality and your product when you purposely give them crap? You are already going through the trouble of offering High Performance Oracal for the cut vinyl. Why jip them on the printed portion? You have to get into the habit of being pickier than your clients... they will always refer you business as a way to say thanks for the extra effort.)

Yeah, I'm in the Las Vegas market... the low ball central of the United States. There are shops here that will bait and switch you just to get you in the door. Promise you 3M vinyl and lam, and when you get your product they aren't laminated and on chinese "pre-curled" vinyl... and printed in 1 pass.

I'm not calling you or your work crap... just cutting corners when it's not really any extra effort to bump up the print quality.

not cutting corners - just got lucky that each line will fit within my 24" plotter - will save so much time not having to do top half bottom half

Oh, you are talking about cut vinyl... I was thinking that you were talking about the printer setting. I believe ColoradoSigns was thinking the same thing.

Apples & Oranges my friend. No... you totally scored an easy profit on this one.
