I recently bid on a similar government job of nearly identical specs. The
"winner" got the job for just the $2.50 embroidery charge above the hard
costs of the shirts. The contractor I use for large jobs says he gets beat
by a competitor in his area who does the same thing. The playing field is
littered with contract enbroiderers who work for less than $2.50 per item
and throw in the garment for hard cost. It seems that if you want to jump
into multi-hundred item contract jobs you can expect to see this as the
rule. There is a niche out there but this ain't it.

Hey Folks,
I would appreciate some opinions here if you are willing.

Customer wants 400 shirts (Port L440c) with 4200 stitches on left chest.
Shirt is $7.99, on an order like this I figure a 40% markup on garment and
$3.50 for the logo.  shirt delivered for say $14.50. Am I too high?

Customer says he can get these for $10.00 ea and now the kicker, he is going
to order them tomorrow and have them by Monday. I think my chain is being
