    Default Screen printing only one

    I have this project I might be taking on. A friend of mine works for an ad agency here in town and one of the clients has this big annual event where he throws down alot of money. They do posters every year for the event that are offset printed. The client is realy into art and wants one poster for himself to be screen printed. It will be something like 10-12 colors. Now I have to come up with a price.

    i know some people charge prices like this:
    design fee, set up fee, $50 a color, then $1 a color for each additional poster.

    I wouldn't do it. I'd rather charge about $3500 for one print

    How big is the annual event? Why not convince them to do all the posters screenprinted... more money for you... Why do a ton offset and then one screenprinted?
    Don't hate me because I'm beautiful, Hate me because I'm an asshole!

    Ass, Grass or Cash... No-one designs for free...
