hopefully, this is what we are looking for. I need to know the run time/s for my projects to quickly give a quote to customers after finalizing the design in corel/adobe. I'm not sure if it does this.

First time that I've seen it, when I saw the price I thought it was a stock number! :eek:

We use a program called EstiMate for pricing vinyl and prints. It has several plug-ins you can buy for different jobs, materials, etc. We don't use it for pricing engraving, but I believe you can set it up to do so.

Much of the time it's just as easy to run with the top open. I just quoted one yesterday, for 500 pieces to cut. Ran 1 only for timing and multiplied it out plus some time for material changes. Having been at this for a few years now there have only been a few detailed engraving jobs where such a program would have been really useful.
