I just got an email about a $900 copy/print job that I did while at my temp job. I was asked to make 50 packets that has within them two large full color packets, and then a handful of other full color one sheets. This totals a lot of copies in color and a lot of money.
What’s crazy is that I feel terrible about this, even though it was exactly what I had been asked to do. Exactly. And I had made packets like this before.
Mostly, I am just surprised that it is just as expensive to make color copies at the office than it is to take them out and have them printed. We used to discuss these kinds of hidden costs all the time at my old job, in terms of material resources we were spending in support of the programs we ran. So interesting.
But seriously, $900. I am having a heart attack.
