  • Large format pricing

    Hey all! Can anyone give me a general idea as to what the going rate (USD) per sq. ft. is for large format printing? What would the general markup be above cost?

    By the way, we're using an Epson StylusPro 9600 if that matters.

    You want it when!? Well in that case, let me pull my magic wand out of my ass and take care of that for you.

    call your local competition and find out what they charge. thats such a general question "Going rate for large format printing" we need more details then that.

    are you talking banners, wall murals, tradeshow graphics, billboards...etc....
    ‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

      I know kinkos is like $18 a sq foot for poster printing.

        Totally depends on the media that you want to print on as well, you might be looking at 10 bucks a foot for bond and 20 buck a foot for vinyl

          Whatever the market will bear.
          And it depends on who you are and how much you order.
          Rates go down as quantity goes up.
          Most wide format shops don't give out square foot pricing any more. It's a per job quote. Mostly to avoid competition calls as suggested by D-Frag. You could try a comparison cost on certain sized pieces. Just make sure your Caller ID is turned off...
