Lots of variables, the biggest being design. Excluding design, then there is the type of material -- I don't remember specifics, but some will last much longer than others, How many colors, whether those colors are "metalic", and perhaps most of all size (length x roll width).

Absolutely the variables count. I’m looking at a 16x4 metallic printed design with lettering. Quoted for vinyl and inkjet with acrylic covering....quoted $250...I made the design, sent it to him by email in required format, then got this price. Thought I’d ask the group to see if this is the going rate?

If that is inches, it seems very steep to me. If you do the design and installation, the cost should be something like materials 20%, and maybe an extra $50 for setup and labor). I had a two-color design that was probably 25" x 68" (so more than 25 times the material of yours) for about $350. I designed and installed.

That's one hell of a cabo sticker, that's some hi class stuff. Too bad someone removed the original cabo sticker on my boat.

This is what it was before my “refit”....never had the original sticker, just this 🐢

What should someone pay for a custom decal for a boat?

I had a sign guy named Jim Kuhn do mine and it was the same ballpark as the boat us graphics plus a little more for transom prep, but not enough for me to prep it myself - $400 ish for my boat.
