How printing calculator work

Each printing method has own way to calculate the price. The Lumise provide some options to enable that.

Firstly, Lumise allows you select format to calculate price base on values on each stage or from all values of stages via option Allow setup price for each stages setting. When turning on it, you can see more stages option show on current option calculate.

We have some options calculate as:

  • Base on a number of resources: Text, Clipart, Images, Uploaded Image…
  • Base on number of colors: 1 Color, 2 Color or full color
  • Base on the size of print production: A1, A2,…A6
  • Fixed price for each quantity

Of course, all options base on the quantity range which user want to orders.

For example, Their design has 2 colors and they order 7 products. And base price of the product is $10

We have calculated price table as:

quantity / 2 colors

———–

5/0.5

———–

10/0.7

So formula product price is: (price_base + attritbute_price + resource_price + printing_price )*quantity

price_base: the basic price of the product (without any resource or attributes)

attribute_price: total price of attributes defined

resource_price: the price of clipart and template – in case you set price.

printing_price: the cost after compare with price table base on quantity

 

with example above, total price = ( $10 + 0 + 0 + 0.7) * 7 = $74.9

attribute_price and resource is 0 in this case.

printing_price is 0.7 because quantity in the range of 5 and 10, So it takes the price of 10.
