On average, you can expect to charge anywhere from $50 to $500 or more for a custom sign or plaque, depending on the specific project, the amount of time & work that went into it, and if you're making one-of-a-kind signs for each customer.

We recommend offering a range of price points to accommodate different budgets. That way, you can reach a wider audience. And by offering customizable signs, you'll automatically increase value of your products and generate more revenue.
