Bid Spec Sheet Printer Quote Form

Advertising Measurement Chart
This chart is a great quick reference for figuring fractions to decimals, column inch dimensions for newspapers and classified ad section dimensions. You should always check with the publication you plan to place your ad for exact dimensions they require.

Bid Spec. Sheet
If you are doing business with an outside vendor, such as a print shop, you will need to provide the vendor with a Bid Spec Sheet that shows in detail what your project consists of and how you request the job to be printed or produced. The vendor will then provide you with an estimate of cost and time frame to complete your project.

NOTE: This form can be used in conjunction with a "Printer Contract". Also see "Printer Specification / Quotation Form". This form can be used as an alternative to the Bid Spec Sheet.

Embroidery Order Form
If your clients need embroidery work, then this form is a great form for preparing orders or getting a quote from a vendor. Use this form to submit your request such as color, garment type and stitch count.

Paper Cutting Chart
Use this chart to determine the yield per flat sheet for your next print project.

Pre-Press Check list
This check off list should be used by designers or production artists to make sure all pre-press work has been reviewed and checked before a project goes out to the printer.

Printer Contract
This type of contract is used to make sure the printer provides the product and service requested by the designer. Some printers may not be willing to sign a contract agreement, since you are purchasing from them, the printer may have their own terms for doing business.

NOTE: Use a "Bid Spec. Sheet" or a "Printer Specification / Quotation Form" in conjunction with the printer contract agreement.

Printer Quote Form (from printer to client)
When quoting printing to a client, use this form to break down pricing. This form includes everything you need to display a proper estimate to your customer.

Printer Specification / Quotation Form (Schedule A)
This form shows in detail what your project consists of and how you request the job to be printed or produced. The vendor will then provide you with an estimate of cost and time frame to complete your project. There is not much difference between this form and a Bid Spec. Sheet, but the Printer Specification form has more details included on the form about the project being requested to print.

NOTE: This form can be used in conjunction with a "Printer Contract". Also see "Bid Spec Sheet". This form can be used as an alternative to the Printer Specification Form.

Standard Print Sizes Chart
Use this chart to determine sizes for your print projects such as envelope, flat sheet and other paper sizes.
