I have been asked to give a price for removing and replacing 300-500 labels in T-shirt type fabric. These are completed garments that one company has purchased from another and wants to relabel with an advertising type label of their own. They have been using another company not located in our town. The other company has been charging $.25 per shirt for this. Does this sound reasonable? The time involved works about to about a minute and a half per shirt at $10/hour. Hardly seems reasonable to charge more than $10 per hour for brainless work. I welcome comments, especially examples from experience.

|it might be brainless, but think of it as YOUR TIME and then ask yourself, is YOUR time worth it? i would think so||

|This other company, is probably a large company that works in production style (they probably can make several in a minute), and can afford to make them that cheap. If you're one person, you should value your time, and charge what you feel you're worth. I would charge $25 - $30/hour, regardless of the brainwork involved, because that is what I feel my time is worth.||
