Charging more for Mylar film plots


In Engineering, Architecture and Graphic Design offices, it is common to use more expensive (premium) print materials such as Mylar Film, Architecture grade paper, and gloss photo paper. PaperCut offers a Charge Rates/Cost Adjustments feature that can help organizations account for the extra costs of these materials.

The user can select the appropriate charge rate or ‘cost adjustment’ from a drop-down list in the client pop-up window. The system can be configured to display various charge rates in the drop-down list. Please see the Cost adjustments and charge rates section of the manual for more information about this feature.

Other users of this feature include:

  • Discounting draft quality prints of draft quality paper.
  • Discounting large batch jobs (e.g. offering a 20% discount for clients ordering 5 or more copies of their architectural plans)

Note: Discounts/adjustments can also be made manually after a print by directly editing print logs and/or making transaction adjustments, however using the Charge Rates feature is a more convenient option.
