Price check

Postby Ghettoman » Fri Oct 06, 2017 9:25 am

30x16 1/4 thick. Customer supplied the metal. I'm pretty new so majority of my time was on drawing and adjusting name /dates how he wanted them. What would some of you "pro's" charge? Thanks

Depends on how much time you spent screwing with the design, but I'd be looking for about $110

I would suggest something to you - back away from using customer supplied steel. Steel is something you should be able to mark up somewhat and make a profit off it. Only project where I used customer supplied steel was when they brought 3 sheets of 11 gauge P&O steel with absolutely no rust.

Yes, I too would stay away from customer provided materials. What happens if you mess up? Better to use your own, mark it up as Nacs said, and not stress about it.

That design, in 1/4" for me would be $75-100, including material.
