Default A question for sign guys

I'm starting to get into sign making and hope some of you will share some of your pricing strategies. I've built cabinets for years so I realize pricing is complicated and it's hard to give an answer without lots of details. My guess is it has more to do with design and cut time than size. I currently have a customer who is wanting an exterior double sided sign for a salon with some simple raised script text and a textured background probably around 2 x 4.

Thank in advance for any help.

There are some threads about this down in the sign making area of the forum...very helpful advise in my experience. Please pay particular attention to the idea that your time is "the same" for a small sign as it is for a large sign. The pricing strategy you decide to adopt should account for this so that you get paid fairly. Time matters.

Jeff, I'm 2200 miles from home or I'd give you some pricing guidelines. Remind me in a week ...
