How Much are Color Copies?

When you’re budgeting for a project, one of the concerns you probably have is printing costs. You may be weighing your options, and you might find yourself trying to decide between black and white and color copies. Obviously, you probably want to make a great impression with your printed piece, but how much are color copies? Is the additional cost worth it?

At Seaboard Graphics, we’re in the business of providing clear, crisp color copies at competitive prices. When you need copies, we can help you determine how much your color copies will cost, and help you work within your budget. There are a few factors that will come into play when determining how much your color copies cost, and understanding these considerations can help you decide if color copies are right for you.

  • Types of Copies: Prices of color copies vary based on what type of copies you require. Do you need basic, single-sided copies on standard, letter-size paper, or do you need double-sided color copies? How much your color copies cost will depend on this factor.
  • Size of Copy Job: Many times, the more copies you purchase the less expensive they get. For instance, the cost for 10 copies would likely be much higher per page than 1000, and 5000 copies and over would be even less per page.
  • Ink Prices: Thinking about doing that copying job yourself? The cost of ink for smaller, personal copiers is much greater than the cost of ink for commercial operations – so you might think you’re saving money, but you probably will be spending more in the long run.
  • Paper Type: Will you be using standard, letter size paper? Or are you looking for something different, like card stock, glossy paper or colored paper, or maybe a larger size? All of these different factors come into play when determining how much your color copies will cost.
