First, start with testing how long 1 will take you.  You only know how long it will take you to do the job.  My 2c

i remove the laminate by using a heat gun, then wiping with alcohol to get the ink off. and reapplying the new bardcode and letters

how much would it cost you to just do a new one? Is that more cost effective by saving you cleaning time?

Not to be a smart ass but if you know your time and material cost you already know how much to charge just add your overhead , mark up and your profit margin

true. it's always good to know what the hard cost is for your labor and materials, but the mark-up and profit margin is where most people struggle with. I still struggle with it at times. Now it's even harder to price competitively since eBay sells vinyl decals super cheap.

ebay pricing is the path to fastest non profit - so many on ebay would be better working at mcdonalds - in china
