Scenario: In 2006 we completed a Comprehensive Plan for a 36 square mile Township. The contract was on a "lump sum" basis, and included a set number of full color bound plan copies. The document is about an inch thick.
Fast forward to April 2007. The Town Chair calls and leaves a voicemail requesting 10 more copies. Our production center completes the prinbting and binding and sends them on their way.
Now in May 2007 the invoivce goes out. The production room charged $0.75 cents per page (remember this is an all color document), and one hour of labor, for a total of $1,038.79.
The Town Chairman calls me absolutely shocked at the cost (they never saw a breakout of printing charges on thier original lump sum invoices).
We checked around, and to send the document to a commercial printer like FedEx / Kinkos would have cost about $1,200.
So I ask the Throbbing Brian of Cyburbia - What do you do about Com Plan printing?
