Price Opinion: First Sign with a lot of separated text

Postby radnurse68 » Sun Jan 08, 2017 11:55 pm

This is my first time doing one with a lot of text with all of the letters separate. Very time consuming to get it all straight. Each piece is offset from the other by about 0.5 inches. The colors will be the same as the original logo. The half moon layer will be candy blue with grinder swirls and the front red layer will be candy red with swirls. All Powder coated. It is 48 X 41. All made with 14ga. I will use the same candy blue and red on the letters. I was thinking of charging $500. That's for everything. I do my own Powder coating. Thanks. I'm also open for suggestions on easing the pain of mounting the letters.

You under charged IMHO. I just completed a larger 8ft x 8ft sign much the same principle in design and scope of work charged $1500 (approx $1050 USD) for it. Think I lost money as it was horribly time consuming building it that way. I decided to avoid making another like that or charge double.

I hope you have another piece laying around, since the "I" from Bridges isn't on the sign......

$500 is way to cheap I would be at $1250-1500 to build that sign
the sign I showed was $700 a lot easier then the one you are talking about
