While I am not really a trade shop, I do accept trade laser work in
our shop, as I own the laser. I use David Geller’s book and charge
roughly 1/3 for trade work.
I am curious how others set their prices. Using “Geller” I do not
have to print and update my own price list, and I find the book’s
pricing quite fair and useful. My employer usually discounts the
retail slightly from the prices listed, which is his business, but I
do have to keep reminding him “to check the Geller price” when I see
prices start to drop at the take in counter.
Sales people are usually more resistant to Geller book prices than
the customers are!
