This week's survey 

How do most sign writers cost their cut letter jobs? By the letter or time and materials? 
Thus survey suggestion was submitted by Margie Davies, Print n Copy of Stanthorpe
(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)  
Last week's survey results on the question of......
Do you charge a minimum price for a small job? 
  • 80$s + GST
  • We charge 55.00 minimum charge for all small jobs if they would be less than this amount, due to the set up costs. 
  • Yes I do. Even if it only takes 5 mins (as we have a retail front as well) we change a minimum of price.
    As far as typesetting goes, we charge a minimum of 15 minutes. (Margie, Stanthorpe Print n Copy)
  • Yes, we certainly do. Bearing in mind, doing the simplest of things will take you away from major jobs so has to be worth our while - in our company anyway. Anyway simple jobs can have some unexpected problems associated with them which could mean doing it at a loss without a minimum charge.

Engineers Go To Heaven
An Engineer dies... and goes to Hell. Dissatisfied with the level of comfort, he starts designing and building improvements. After a while, Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators.
The engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day God calls and asks Satan, "So, how's it going down there?"
Satan says, "Hey things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."
God is horrified. "What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have gone down there! You know all engineers go to Heaven. Send him up here! "
Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff. I'm keeping him."
God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue."
"Yeah, right," Satan laughs, "and where are you going to get a lawyer?"
