UV coating pricing ideas?
« on: December 13, 2011, 01:51:49 PM »
Using an offline UV coater,
anybody care to share what type of pricing addition you apply for this service?
(stuff like '4x6' postcards - 1/s UV flood...) say - 500 to 10,000 pieces...

from what I've seen, for this sort of printing UV is the standard and anything NOT coated is an option once you have the ability to coat.

I'm coming from the perspective of a gang run card place on this. Once you start coating stuff and realize how quickly you can cut it afterwards it becomes almost undesirable to not coat. The type of customer you have and the work you have will drive this though.

If you're selling it as value added you'll have to be creative.
