Clancy boy i think you just found a side bussiness for yourself. I too am interested in a screan door gaurd. I have a 1 year old and a dog so I was thinking of some way to keep them from falling through the door within a door. I would love to know the price you will be charging.

I'm going to have to pass on the production of these things.

It was made at a commercial metal fabrication shop that really does not want the business to do one of a kind items. We contract allot through them and I was able to get them to do this for me. The cost was materials at $10 and time for reformat of file and cutting $25. These guys are real busy - they do production runs in the 1000''s and my call today was met with a "not interested" reply. BUT, the owner stated that my costs were what he would have charged - it took 15 minutes from start to finish - the breaks on top and bottom were done in seconds - when you have the equipment it's easy.

The CAD drawings is where the money is - but text is not all that complicated. It's the designs that will take work.

$35.00 is a good price. For those who want more info, that's about what you'd pay at a sign shop, plus they might include the artwork/layout if do not ask for a dozen revisions to what they come up with.

What a great idea for personalizing one's Airstream! And as a business, I see that there are quite a few other fellow travelers out there (with SOB's... ), that would probably be interested in such an idea. Lot's of forums (print & web) to advertise on... Jump on it!
