Wide Format Stock Definitions Can Be Tricky for Costing

Setting up a Wide Format can be challenging if you haven’t done it before. Take a close look at this screenshot to see how to do it.

I included the Production Data window from a job to show how the Costing works for the job. The important things to remember are:

  1. Check the Radio Button for Large Format, which uses a roll of stock.
  2. Keep your Minimum Order Length small, in the 12 to 24 inch range.
  3. Calculate your Costing Units by the Square Inches for the entire roll.
  4. Your Cost should be for the entire roll because that is how you order it from your vendor.

Give it a try and be sure to test the results with an actual estimate or job. Good luck!
