Pricing for canvas stretching using EstLite

Post by craigfda » Tue 12 Feb, 2019 6:09 pm

Hi folks,

Quick questions about pricing- when using EstLite to price for stretching a canvas do you use the "Stretch canvas" option solely, or do you also include the price of the stretcher mouldings?

E.g. I have a canvas measuring 62cm x 68.5- just using the "stretch canvas" option, I would charge £34- entering the stretcher moulding code as if it were a frame adds another £26.60 making £60.60 in total.

Which is the fair price? It still takes me quite a while to stretch the things!!

Cheers in advance,

Craig

I would say that the £34 is a fair reflection of the labour involved to stretch it and the £26.60 is a fair price for the moulding.
That's how I price mine.
