My agency offers free printing for menus we design. Obviously, we do not provide this service for things we do not design.
Me: We are not inclined to print any of these menus for free, considering we did not design them. If they would still like for us to print them, it will be $XXXX total.
Client: Please print the 2000 burger menus and 1000 kids menus for delivery tomorrow. I spoke with my boss, and if we can do this initial run at no charge, I will let him know the value of this effort and that it will cost him this amount for future runs.
Me: I don’t think you understand – we will not be printing the menus for free that someone else designed. Please let me know if they are willing to accept the costs.
Client: I don’t think they will. We already committed to printing them for free.
