Quoting projects for customers is an area where many print and sign shops struggle, but it’s extremely important to get right. Fortunately, with print shop software, you can make quoting much easier for your shop. With shopVOX, you can create quotes for all the products your shop offers quickly, making the process much more efficient for anyone who handles this task. One feature in shopVOX that many sign shops can benefit from is pricing and quoting print to substrate products. This is something many shopVOX users have questions about, so we’ve created this product for users to download and use to quote their customers.
Creating quotes and pricing projects doesn’t have to be the challenge that many think it is. Find out how your sign shop can use shopVOX to quote digital prints with substrates.
Determine Material and Labor Costs
You can use shopVOX to price various digital prints with substrates. This product is intended specifically for these types of projects and is easy to use every time you need to create digital prints. You can adjust the size of every project you’re working on, so you can use it for pricing no matter how big or small the product is. In this shopVOX product, you can include any details for your project that could have an effect on the cost. Seeing the substrate materials listed on this product can also help make it easier for team members who might not be as familiar with them to still find the right option.
Some details included in this product for you to fill in are the type of ink being used, vinyl, and laminate. In addition to the materials and printing services needed for the sign, some projects might also require extra accessories. For example, does this digital print require posts? Details like this can easily be included in your materials when you need them. Within shopVOX, there are also a few important questions included for anyone taking the order should ask their customers. This includes how long they intend to use the sign for, where it will be used, and the mounting style. Of course, not all fields are applicable to every project, so the information you need to include will vary.
Materials aren’t the only factor that can affect the total cost, which is why this product also allows you to add the labor costs it requires. After you’ve added all the information for the materials needed for the project and have a cost for that, you’ll need to determine the labor costs. As anyone in the industry knows, labor costs can vary greatly from project to project. You can include how many people are needed to install the sign and how long it should take to include this in the final cost.
