Types of Bids

Itemized Bids

Itemized bids show the pricing for each of the components of an apparel decoration job as opposed to standard bids and mixed item bids which show inclusive pricing. For example, an itemized bid for embroidery might show the price for the undecorated garment, the digitizing, and the embroidery. Itemized bids often show both a total price per item and total price for the job.

Sample itemized bid for screen printing

Itemize the pricing for the shirts, screens, and printing the front, and printing the back.

Here is the same bid customized on the Line Item Page.

Important note about screen printing Itemized Bids:

In order to charge separately for the screens, you’ll need to set up a new pricing profile in which the field Screen Charge per Color is set to 0.00. If you don't remove the screen charge from the profile and the screen charge is in the profile, and add a direct charge on the Line Items Page to the line list, you will charge the customer twice for the screens.

Change to this for screen printing itemized bid

This eliminates the screen charges when setting up the line items on the Design and Pricing Page.

To add the separate charge for the screens, click Add Direct Item on the Line Items Page and add the screen charge using the Add Direct Item dialog box.


Be sure to create a new profile with the word "Itemized" in it to make sure you use the correct profile when doing itemized bids.

Sample itemized bid for embroidery

Separate out the costs for digitizing the images for the front and back embroidery so that he will know what the cost for just the embroidery will be on future reorders.
