Step one:  With SigniMate™ sign pricing software program open, Press the Reset Form Button, then enter the following:  quantity one, input height, input length, one sided, choose 10 MM Corex, choose digital media, choose ink type, you can choose laminate if desired, pre-mask would be set to none, plotter cut vinyl would be set to none, colors would be set to one, or rta vinyl would be set to no, die cut details would be set to no, pre-mask would be set to none, project difficulty would typically be set to default, additional design in additional labor is to your choosing.

Step two: due to the fact that your pricing of a 36 inch by 96 inch sign, and we all know that substrates are typically 48 inch by 96 inch, you will have a 12 inch by 96 inch substrate waste.  In addition you will also have an 18 inch by 96 inch media waste if you're printing on a 54 inch printer, if you chose a laminate, it will also account for this media waste.  To account for these SigniMate™ has been media waste and substrate waste factor.  Under the media waste factor you would input put the media waste size of 18 inch by 96 inch.  Under the substrate waste factor you would input the 12 inch by 96 inch waste size.  By been putting these values in both the media waste and the substrate waste factors SigniMate™ will automatically account for this wasted material that you probably have never charged for in the past.  By attributing these factors in your sign cost rather than throwing profits away, you will start making them.

Step three: make sure your design rate, labor rate, substrate markup, and materials markup, are set to determine your proper profit margins.

Step two: project difficulty would be set to your determination, additional design would be set to your determination, additional labor would be set to include whether or not you are installing this project if so this is where you will set your installation rate, the default labor settings include the time it takes to produce these graphics in the house and does not determine the amount of time it would take you to drive to and from your installation location.  The media waste, substrate waste, cut fees, other items, components, stands, would typically be set to what you determine.

Step three: make sure that your quote form line items are cleared then press the save quote link on the assign pricing interface, to save this line item quote before moving on to save the additional line items.
