My Bill For Designing The Posters

Posted in Graphics Unit 17 on June 24, 2014 by SHayman

For creating the graphic designed posters I’m going to charge £15/per hour as I’m just starting as a graphic designer and having a bill this low will allow me to gain more industry experience over the next few years.

Designing these three posters took around seven hours (including the improved from feedback versions)
Therefore the total cost for my time designing is £105

By using the website I was able to establish a cost for printing ONE THOUSAND copies of any of my poster designs. I made sure to add the actual size of my posters into this quote calculator, I then choose the quality of material I went with high quality photo paper and choose a standard gloss for the lamination.

To get the cheapest price I choose the latest date of delivery which as you can see is the 2nd of July, where the total price is £4,661.55

I then made some calculations so I could work out how much each individual poster cost to print.

Total Cost ÷ Total Amount = Cost Per Individual Poster

The price for one poster to be printed is £4.66 (rounded up)
The standard price for posters as big as ours, on websites and in shops like HMV (where the posters will mainly be sold when not at gaming expos) is between £3.99 and £14.99 this is good because the cost of printing a poster is quite low so to make a profit that would be satisfactory we would have to sell our posters at around £6.99  which is the average price for posters, as you can see below in a screenshot from
