Hi Guys,

I sent some files (thanks spacies) to a sign place for a quote on a marquee for my imperial arcade cab and some art for the speaker ring holes. The quote i got back;

"To supply only 2 self adhesive stickers 12 inch diameter with clear UV Overlaminate $33 GST Inclusive

To supply and install digital print to internal face of Acrylic(to be supplied by you) in translucent vinyl $110 GST inclusive " (70cm x 16cm)

Now that seems a little expensive to me so can anyone recommend someone who can print these up for me at a reasonable price? Im in Sydney but i dont think that matters as i can just email the files and they can send them to me :unsure

Thanks!!

I've had some marquees printed on Fuji's Fujiflex (only for backlighting) and it worked a treat. Cheap too.

your getting ripped, I would expect it to be half or more less than that quote.

at least my printers are.

or they go broke

the cost of materials and inks has gone up 40%

$250mt!

We only charge around $110-140 over here and thats @ 1200 w

$110 is $$$$ too much for the marquee.
I could have a machine print DIRECTLY onto the acrylic for that. A decal should only be around $40-50. Maybe they are stinging you for the application?
