One of my blog reader wrote in to enquire on the media cost calculation for the Canon iPF PRO540 that he newly invested.

The new owner of the Canon iPF Pro540 is operating a fast print shop (print services provider). He mentioned that able to calculate various media cost in term of per square foot or per square meter is very helpful for him to quote customers that has various media requirements.

A roll of Matte Vinyl Sticker, 24inches x 30m, MYR210 per roll.

Cost per square foot calculation:

Width: 24inches = 2foot
Length: 30m = 98.43foot

1 roll of 24inches x 30m Matte Vinyl Sticker contains 2 x 98.43 square foot
= 196.86 square foot

Cost per square foot
= RM210/196.86 square foot
= RM1.07 per square foot

Cost per square meter:
Width: 24inches = 0.61meter
Length: 30meter

1 roll of 24inches x 30m Matte Vinyl Sticker contains 0.61 x 30 square meter
= 18.3 square meter

Cost per square meter
= RM210/18.3 square meter
= RM11.48 per square meter

*The above costing does not include media wastage.
