Below there are two measurement methods used to calculate pricing: square feet and linear feet. This allows me to work on smaller murals without having to set a minimum price.
Measuring Using Square Feet
Square footage is measured by multiplying the width of a wall by its height. I will use square feet in my pricing when the wall surface is 100 square feet or greater in dimension.
Measuring Using Linear Feet
Linear footage is measured by adding width of the wall and its height. I will use linear feet when a wall is 100 square feet or less in dimension.
SIMPLE DETAIL WALL MURAL
A mural within this category would have a simple pattern and/or shapes and would be painted using painter’s tape for masking and a brush and roller paint application.
Below 100 square feet: $36/ linear foot
Above 100 square feet: $7.5/ square foot
MODERATE DETAIL WALL MURAL
A mural within this category would include a moderate amount of detail and would include spray painted graffiti, abstract geometric designs, and simple illustrations.
Below 100 square feet: $60/ linear foot
Above 100 square feet: $18/ square foot
COMPLEX DETAIL WALL MURAL
A mural within this category would include high levels of details, complicated illustrations, semi-realism, and realism.
Below 100 square feet: $250/ linear feet
Above 100 square feet: $50/ square feet
Non-Refundable Design/Sketch Fee
33% of mural price – Includes up to 2 sets of changes by client (Additional sketches charged at $100/sketch)
Travel within 50 miles of Frederick, MD, all materials, rental equipment, assistant fees, and work to completion.
Pricing Does Not Include
Travel outside the 50 miles radius from Frederick, MD, liability insurance or wall preparation.
Additional work due to adverse conditions on surface that requires extraneous labor will be charged extra, at a rate of $75.00 / hour. I do my best to addressed these issues at the time of the mural estimate but sometimes cannot be determined until after the job has begun.
Design fee of 33% of mural price is due prior to sketch process (non-refundable). An additional deposit of 17% of the mural price is due two weeks prior to start date of painting (non-refundable). This allows ordering of supplies and scheduling. Full balance is due on the final day of completion.
