Is my pricing in or out of line!??

I have completed my shadowbox project for a small flag and certificate.

Since I did this for a friend - I priced it a bit lower than normal.... ask me why?!

Just out of curiosity - where would your pricing be for the following:

Size: 16 x 20
Moulding: Decor 8919
Mat: B4179 (and backer top mounted)2 windows
stitch flag
line rabbets with mat/fc to depth needed
uv glass
mount certificate



Hi Roz,

I think you did right by them, although I priced it out as follows:Decor 8919 103.95
B 4179 30.00
stitching 25.00
shadowbox 42.00
UV Clear 18.00
AFFC 9.00
hardware 2.00

I have almost the same charge as you.

In line with me.

Are you using any pos software?

I am and have changed around most of the pricing to better suit my area. (raised everything by quite a bit)

Just curious how you came about your numbers.
As you described it (although I am a little unclear about the “and backer top mounted”), I would have charged $248.80.
Thanks all!!

I do have Lifesaver POS... and I have included my own 1/4, 1/2 and 1 hour rates that I enter for what I think will be involved.

Bill, The backer I reference - is the mat behind the flag with a window cut out for the certificate. I think I used the wrong word!! Oops!

The customer LOVED it!! So that is good!!
