First, let’s get the biggie out of the way:

All design work is completed free of charge.

Unlike some companies that charge for hourly for design or tack on hidden fees at the end of the job, we are completely upfront about what the job will cost.

Faceplate and Nameplate cost

Every order is subject to a flat $25 setup fee. Note that this charge is PER ORDER, not per plate. Exact re-orders are not charged a further setup fee, so if you sell a bunch of amps and need more plates for them, you won’t pay setup unless the design changes in some way.

Shipping/handling is a flat $14 for U.S. addresses, and $45 for foreign. Again, this is a PER ORDER charge.

The price of the plates themselves depends on the size and material used. Both faceplates and nameplates are the same price per square inch. You can calculate your plate price by using the following formula:

Plate length (inches) X Plate height (inches) X Material cost (see chart below) = Plate cost
For example, a 16″ X 2″ black/white plastic faceplate would cost the following amount:

Setup: $25
Plate engraving: 16″ X 2″ X $1.15 = $36.80
Shipping: $14
TOTAL FOR THIS ORDER: $75.80

If you wanted to add a backplate to the above order, you’d simply add the cost of another plate to the total. The design and shipping fees would not be any more.

Custom grille cloth cost

Every grille cloth is subject to a $25 setup fee. Note that because the setups are different, if you are ordering plates and grille cloth in the same order, the setup fee for the grille cloth is in addition to the plate fee.

Shipping/handling is a flat $25 for U.S. addresses. We regret that we cannot ship grilles to foreign addresses.

The price of the cloth themselves depends on the finished size. You can calculate your plate price by using the following formula:

(Cloth length (inches) X Cloth height (inches) / 144) X $20.00 = Cloth cost
For example, a 16″ X 18″ grille cloth would cost the following amount:

Design/file processing for 1 grille cloth: $25
Grille Cloth: (16″ X 18″)/144 X $20.00 = $40
Shipping: $25
TOTAL FOR THIS ORDER: $90.00

Stocked materials for faceplates and nameplates

Here is the chart of stocked materials. We can do other materials, too, but there is a $30 special order fee for those. (Call us at 202-492-3237 for more information on non-stocked materials.) Please note that we can only accept payment via PayPal (PayPal account or credit card).
