We've been in business for a little over 10 years now as my part time weekend gig. I've always priced my signs based on what I thought the local market could bare. I'm in the local flea market and do decent, lately getting more orders for bigger signs and more quanity of signs. I'm looking to expand to the point that one day soon this will be my full time job. I just recently looked at the signcraft pricing guide and was wondering just how accurate those prices are. After the first time looking at the guide and reading the forums here, I feel like im WAY WAY below retail. I'm selling a 2x6 banner for $36. Is this close or should I be higher? Just looking for some input to help me get to my dream of making signs and decals full time. Thanks

I do not know anything about your location, quality, or how you make your banners.
if you make good profit on that banner, Good for you.
My store is located in New Jersey, I charge from $5-$8 per sf.

Do you all use the Signcraft sign pricing guide? I use the Estimate program in my business....but when I feel my price is "off", I always check myself with that guide....some of you are selling way too cheap....don't sell yourself short! Your time is worth it!

Even up here in NH I would price a banner between $5 & $8 a square foot. Giving the basic banner a price of $60.00. Don't sell our industry short!
