  1. I dont do to much vinyl cutting these days, however I'm going to help a friend do his full size RV. I have no clue what to charge him. He wants to pay full "normal" price but I'm struggling to figure out whats normal. Its all one color (black) lettering with a simple elk graphic. It will require 3 - 50"x43" decals 1 - 12"x60 decal 3 - 15"x15" decals I will be installing it myself and I need a general ball park estimate. I've tried using some of the price calculators but I can never seem to figure them out. someone please help.

    Quoting Jobs Kill me!

    Man, I need some serious help on learning what our craft should charge. To many time I shoot way to low and get burned. But at the same time I don't want to quote to high and lose the job. I've tried comparing prices with other sites and using a price calculator that was going around but I'm still not confident in giving quotes. What would you charge for a 2 color 24"X45" decal? I was thinking like $45 or so... Am I way off or does that sound about right?
  7. I have my first customer who has a specific CMKY color code for their logo. Looking at the Oracle swatches in Illustrator there isn't an exact match. What do you do in this situation??? Please help!
  8. I've got my first banner order. Hows the ENDURABANNERs? Are they good quality or is there another brand thats more preferred? Also do you apply vinyl dry or wet?

    my first t-shirt order

    nice shirt, seems like a lot of work. I think the reason other people charge so little for the coro signs are because they buy them in bulk and they screen print them. That keeps all the costs lower. For smaller shops it wouldn't make sense to buy thousands of blank signs at a time. But also the screen printing produces a sign is much faster then vinyl. Vinyl is good for small jobs but screen printing is the way to go for larger jobs.

    Reflective Vinyl: Squad Car

    Reflective Vinyl: Squad Car

    Thanks Guys, The Badge is layered. We Originally planned to screen print it. But while we were waiting on getting the artwork together to get the screens made we decided to try it layered. It came out so clean and crisp I think we're just sticking to layering it. Which is fine with me. Less work as far as getting screens made. And it will never fade. lol

    Reflective Vinyl: Squad Car

    This is my first reflective vinyl experiance. I did it for the NM Mounted Patrol. They liked it so much I got 9 more lined up to do.
  13. I got the reflective vinyl in but I'm waiting on the 60 degree blades... Would it hurt to try the 45 degree blade?
