So, how much do custom decals cost? The answer is, it depends. It’s a challenging question, but we’ll do our best to give you a realistic idea. Custom decals range in cost from a few cents to a few hundred dollars. Size alone doesn’t dictate price. The variables include several factors.
How Much Do Custom Decals Cost?
How much do custom decals cost? There are several options that will affect the cost of custom decals. These include materials, production, and installation. Here are a few of the options available for custom decals.
Material options include premium high performance vinyl, intermediate grades, reflective, window perf, and more. 3M Graphics Solutions alone has over 200 choices, which vary by usage, quality, and price.
Production costs include initial setup. The higher the quantity, the less the production cost per piece. For example, if 10 decals are being printed, the set up cost is 10% of the price of each piece, but if 100 decals are being produced it’s 1%. Price breaks on most decals occur somewhere near quantities of 50, 100, 250, and 500.
The complexity of design and preparedness of the artwork will affect price as well. At TKO our flat art fee is lower than most, but if our design team spends several hours designing the decal or setting up your project, it will reflect in the price.
Do you have the know-how and time to install the decals yourself? If you don’t plan to install the decals yourself are there certified installers available to complete the application? Who applies the decal also affects the price.
How Much Do Custom Decals Cost?
So, how much do custom decals cost? As you can see, there are many variables that affect the price of any custom decal. The only certain way to find a price on custom decals is to work directly with an established provider such as TKO Graphix, on a specific decal. With that in mind here’s a rough price range:
4” x 4” may cost under a dollar, or as much as $4 or $5
24” x 24” — $10 to $40
3’ x 6’ — $25 to $100
Where Can Decals be Used?
Decals can be placed almost anywhere you want to leave a message. This includes cars, trucks, floors, walls, and windows. They may be displayed in retail outlets, on vehicles, displays, and temporary signs — the possibilities are endless.
Do Decals Have an Advantage Over Wraps?
There’s a tendency to define many types of display graphics as wraps. Wraps cover an entire area — either a complete vehicle, storefront, window, wall, or retail display. Decals cover a specified section and are often as effective as a wrap.
The advantages of decals include cost and ease of installation. Whether it’s a window cling on a door, company logo on a truck, or a sticker on a retail display, applying a decal isn’t nearly as complicated, expensive, or time consuming as a wrap.
